One of Amsterdam's most famous restaurants, Vijff Vlieghen is located near the city center and very close to busy shopping streets such as the Kalverstraat and Leidsestraat. The restaurant serves what is now hailed "New Dutch Cuisine" in a historic atmosphere. Spanning five authentic 17th-Century buildings, the restaurant consists of various dining rooms, each of which has its own unique atmosphere and background. As for the food, the chef conjures up a wonderful combination of traditional Dutch cooking and modern presentation. Also available are vegetarian set menus and a three-course seasonal set menu. Lunch is only served to parties consisting of more than 20 people who have booked in advance.
d'Vijff Vlieghen is one of our favorites and a must visit every time we are in Amsterdam. The ambiance is rustic and quint essential Dutch. Fairly quiet - its great for a business dinner or a romantic evening. The food is outstanding and the service generally good. Its not cheap but you get what you pay for. Enjoy!
I had been before when we were a group spending a lot in one of the big rooms. Service OK. This is the best way to visit, or ask to be sat in the large room where there is some atmosphere and local people.
We got stuck in a side room before the main part of the restaurant in a room full of objectionable Americans, two with standard loud children, one of whom overate and was sick and another two loud mouthed business men who just overate and you could probably hear downstairs.
The service was appallingly slow
BTW The wine by the glass is half a glass, served warm if white wine, and charged at more than the whole bottle would cost in the wine store.
