Fodor's Review

Groaning with pewter tankards, stained glass, leaded-glass windows, rich historic paneling, Indonesian paisley fabriks, and tasseled Victorian lamps, this restaurant's "Old Holland" vibe and matching menu attract lots of tourists. And why change a winning formula? The Pieter de Hooch–worthy interiors eclipse the food, although the (somewhat overpriced) dishes include an excellent pea soup and a selection of stamppotten (mashed dishes that combine potato

with a variety of vegetables or meats). On cold winter nights, opt for the hutspot, a stamppot of mashed potato and carrot supplemented with steamed beef, sausage, and bacon. But nothing could be more "delicious" than the fabulous decor here, certainly in the running for Amsterdam's handsomest historic landmark.

So So.

We were greeted by a strong smell of disinfectant! All vegetables appear to be frozen. The lamb was tasteless. Despite 'Old Dutch' style the atmosphere was not relaxing. Service OK but did not encourage you to linger. Suggest trying elsewhere.
