Van Vlaanderen had a Michelin * for a while, but they were not very pleased with it, as it limited their creativity. So when they lost it, they were not unhappy. Five years ago, the ownership changed: the interior remained the same, but the kitchen...More

This restaurant, located near the city centre, is one of my favourites in Amsterdam. It offers all the ingredients I expect to find in a good restaurant: - a warm, tasteful interior - the tables are set wide apart, guaranteeing the privacy of your conversation...More

Started promisingly . We had the tasting menu, lovely table, lovely waitress. First two courses arrived promptly, really good food. But the place was seriously packed, and nothing else came for an hour. And when it did it was a little dull. Desserts uninspiring. And...More

Van Vlaanderen restaurant surprises its guests with traditional French cuisine with a modern twist. Our young and enthusiastic team will make sure you have a lovely evening in a cosy setting. Enjoy our beautiful a la carte or Bib Gourmand menu or be surprised by our chef with our special chef's menu with the best ingredients our kitchen has to offer. In the summer you can also enjoy our small, but cosy terrace overlooking the canal. Very close to tourist attractions like the Heineken Experience/ Brewery, Rijksmuseum and Leidseplein. Well worth your visit!
