Decent food in a lovely manor: Seminar Rooms @ Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg (15. – 19. May 2017)

During a one week training I got to try various versions of lunch servings at the Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg. Overall, the dishes are quite fine as you get offered quite a variety of different things but they were not really anything special. I mean, functional, tasted well, but definitely not in the area I […]

Lovely restaurant with surprisingly good dishes: Restaurant Le Garage (14. May 2017)

I was wondering why the restaurant ‘Le Garage’ was called that way when I learned the next morning that the restaurant was originally started in a garage, it started to make sense. However, nowadays, it doesn’t look anything like a garage anymore. I went for the “Formula II Menu” (EUR 37.50) which is basically a […]

Fine breakfast: Restaurant My Place @ Element Amsterdam (16. October 2016)

The breakfast selection at the Restaurant My Place at the Element Amsterdam is rather limited and it is very much self-service oriented. Something I am not used to from SPG hotels. However, after the second day you are kind of used to it, so it is fine. You have to get everything, plate including knife […]

Nice audience but mediocre DJ: Jimmy Woo Club (15. October 2016)

According to one of my friends who used to go out in Amsterdam quite often, Jimmy Woo was the place to be. Well, turns out that this is maybe not so true anymore. It was already not really easy to get in as apparently it is still perceived as this fancy good club but after […]

Amazing industrial chic: Restaurant Hotel de Goudfazant (15. October 2016)

Sometimes you find real hidden gems in locations you would never go to if nobody pointed you in exactly that direction. The Hotel de Goudfazant is such a case! It is located in a former factory which still has its industrial chic and it is located on the other side of the channel which divides […]

Asian dishes with an unfriendly waiter: Restaurant Wagamama (15. October 2016)

It is quite some time ago since I have been at a Wagamama – and I kind of remember why I do not go there usually. However, given a good friend wanted to go there, we ended up in the Wagamama. Well, the problem was that the waiter who was receiving us was being an […]

When the peak is reached with the first course: Restaurant RIJKS (14. October 2016)

When the peak is reached with the first course: Restaurant RIJKS (14. October 2016)

The RIJKS is located in the Rijksmuseum, respectively right next to it. It is recommended to book a table way in advance as the place is very crowded in the evening – and even if you book the table for 9pm (as we did), you would still end up waiting at the bar until your […]

Sad little restaurant with inattentive waiter: Restaurant Le Rendez-Vous (14. October 2016)

Sad little restaurant with inattentive waiter: Restaurant Le Rendez-Vous (14. October 2016)

Admittedly, we were just looking for a place to have a drink which looked decent before going to RIJKS. And while the interior was actually absolutely decent, it was kind of a sad view as the place was completely empty and there were no other guests than us. Despite that, the service did not really […]
