    This was one of the best dinners we have ever had anywhere in the world. Emma Lu was outstanding as hostess, bartender, server and coat check. She handled the entire front of the house and exceeded ours and every other diner's expectations. A true pro. And the food prepared by her husband/chef Johan was absolutely delicious. We did the 4 course tasting and loved every plate. From the presentation to the intricate layers of tastes and textures it was simply a wonderful dining experience. We highly recommend you dine here when in Amsterdam.

    Not expecting anything except just like a typical restaurant, this was really nothing like that. The menu is based on fish, game, poultry and meat with either 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 courses and all of them were fantastic. The meals come with wine by the glass or by the bottle, we were all thoroughly impressed the staff there were super nice and we left with big smiles on our faces. Reservations are must, you won’t regret it.

    Intimate place for a pre fixe dinner. We had an early pre-theater menu. Since the curtain was at 7 we didn’t have the usual amount of time. Mme Cunningham was very attentive and served us well. Dinner was fabulous with inventive and delicious courses and wine.

    Oh my. What a meal. Tiny restaurant. Neighborhood location. Amazing menu that is very heavy on wild game. Everything was delicious. Great wine recommendation. Popular with the theater crowd, so it clears out as showtime approaches. Intimate, quiet. Experiences like this do not come without a price. It is expensive- but I can't remember what we ate. I can't remember what we paid. In the end, we will definitely return and keep it on the short list in Amsterdam.

    Small and engaging restaurant to enjoy our evening meal. Pre Fix menu with few selections. Food was very good, service by an energetic staff with lots of patience helping us through the menu options. Recommend checking ahead on the nightly selections. Would return on a future visit to Amsterdam.

    This was our first night restaurant for dinner after a long Eurostar trip, and it was exactly what we needed. We were welcomed and seated with attention but no fuss, and the only decision we needed to make was how many courses to have. We chose 5 courses with wine pairing and it didn't disappoint. Each course was delicious, beautifully presented and could not be faulted. Just the right amount of wine was served at just the right speed. This is harder to get right than you might imagine. We have done tasting menus before where we've been served a full large glass of wine with each small plate and were utterly hammered by the end of the meal, which might sound great, but really isn't pleasant. Here, the glasses are small, but filled to exactly the right level to ensure good value and served at a pace that complements the food, supporting a laid back evening of warm conversation with no hangover in the morning. It felt like a chilled evening in a friend's living room. Service was friendly and discreet - we had a lovely chat at the end of the evening with our server and she gave us walking directions back to our hotel that avoided the crazy Friday night tourist spots. I never normally give 5 stars because there's usually something I'd change about a dining experience, but I can't think of anything in this case. A fully deserved 5 stars for a wonderful evening. Fabulous.

    Some of the dishes can be a bit salty. We had the 8 course meal and if you are not super hungry, I would suggest the 5 course meal is more than enough. Service as very good. Oysters were fresh.

    Perfect dinner at DenC. They offer set menus and a la carte items so we combined the two. They also offer special wines by the glass, allowing us to create our own pairings, which was great. The food and wine was amazing, the service and atmosphere wonderful. We had scallops and duck pate to start, followed by lamb and beef entrees. Apricot dessert with lavender ice cream. The red wine from Israel was unexpected and fabulous. We regret not getting the bottle!
