Lovely view onto the harbour with typical Dutch dishes: Restaurant Loetje aan ‘t IJ (5. July 2020)

Frankly, the Loetje aan ‘t IJ is not a place you randomly come across as a tourist when you’re in Amsterdam but with the help of some local guidance, it is a place you should definitely put on your agenda. I mean, the food is good, more about that in a second, but what is […]

An amazing speakeasy which is not that easy to find: World Class Room @ Pigs & Punch (4. July 2020)

An amazing speakeasy which is not that easy to find: World Class Room @ Pigs & Punch (4. July 2020)

I’m a big fan of speakeasies as they are always hidden treasures. The World Class Room is in a place where you would not expect to find a speakeasy (just as intended). When you enter the restaurant Pigs & Punch you have to go to the first floor where you can find a little glass […]

Amazing view all over Amsterdam in a revolving restaurant: Restaurant Moon (4. July 2020)

During times of COVID-19, you have to make sure to book your table in advance as there aren’t too many available tables (they can’t run the restaurant at full capacity yet). The menu (EUR 45.00) consists of three courses (starter, main, dessert) and once you’ve been seated and placed your order, you get some “bread […]

Decent Coronavirus version of a W breakfast: Restaurant Mr. Porter @ W Amsterdam (4. July 2020)

Decent Coronavirus version of a W breakfast: Restaurant Mr. Porter @ W Amsterdam (4. July 2020)

The breakfast options at the W Amsterdam are currently not really outstanding as due to the coronavirus, the breakfast buffet option is still not up and running but at least they are generous when you select the Marriott Bonvoy Titanium offer of a free breakfast and you get to order pretty much what you want […]

Good yet not exciting dinner: Brasserie & Loungebar DenK @ Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg (6. September 2018)

Good yet not exciting dinner: Brasserie & Loungebar DenK @ Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg (6. September 2018)

Somehow, we ended up in the same restaurant again. I do wonder a bit why but who am I to judge? As a little finger food, “crackers and spread” were served which lasted only a few minutes … … but luckily, “bread and butter” were served in no time. The starter was a “herbal salad, […]

Good breakfast selection with swift service: Brasserie & Loungebar DenK @ Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg (6. September 2018)

The breakfast selection at the Denk is quite decent as you get everything from sweets … … to fresh honey … … a selection of different breads … … warm dishes like scrambled egg, bacon and sausages … … as well as some fresh fruit and juices … … and a luscious selection of different […]

Good dinner in a nice atmosphere: Brasserie & Loungebar DenK @ Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg (5. September 2018)

I would say this evening was my highlight in the Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg as the menu was actually quite promising. As a starter they served “scallops with Prosciutto di Parma, salad, cucumber, pickled shallots, yogurt cream” which were fine. Of course, they don’t reach the quality level of the scallops I’ve had at O […]

Crappy atmosphere but okay dishes: Grand Café Valerius (4. September 2018)

Crappy atmosphere but okay dishes: Grand Café Valerius (4. September 2018)

A bit more than a year ago, I had already the ‘pleasure’ to eat at the Café Valerius and nothing much has changed. The food is still surprisingly good for the place. And the place is rather super-basic. I mean, nothing appealing really in terms of atmosphere and decoration. But at least the starters were […]
