    Excellent food, friendly service and a refreshing concept. The restaurant's staff made sure we feel comfortable and we'd totally dine there again.

    We had high expectations on Balthazar´s after reading positive reviews. The service was friendly and it was good that we could taste 3 different wines before choosing our wine but the food - other than the appetizers - was rather disappointing, particularly the lamb. I think the meal was overpriced for the quality of food.

    Selection of starters were delicious and interesting pairings of ingredients. Main course choice was limited but not a problem for me. Pudding was excellent too. House wine was good value. Staff very attentive and friendly. Great evening out.

    We have really enjoyed every aspect of our dinner. The dishes were creative and flavorful. Nice atmosphere. Loved the open kitchen. I think it’s a really good value too. Will definitely go again!

    Food is decent! Not mind blowing. We preferred the last time we visited. Service wasn’t fabulous this time either with a few of the staff making you feel you were inconveniencing them at times during the evening.

    Always great pleasure to have dinner there. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Definitely, our favourite restaurant in Amsterdam. We'll come back again and again.

    Laid back atmosphere, friendly waiters and good food. I like the concept of rotating menu's: fixed 3 course menu that changes weekly.

    My second time at BK and the same fun atmosphere and delicious food both times. Love the tasty shared starters and simple choice of 2 options for the main. Welcoming and friendly staff too

    We got there, sat down, waiter spilled carafe of water all over my husband. We had a choice of cod or rabbit for entree, rabbit was just ok and cod my husband said was awful. Our waiter kept eating through out our meal, he would dip into fridge for stuff, go to the kitchen and take what ever was on a knife in a bowl, with his fingers, then replace knife back in bowl for customers. They had shaved chocolate and he would take mouthfuls of that. Never once washing his hands. He just crossed contaminated the entire evening.

    Let’s start with the positive. The intention of some of the stuff was good and so was my main course. Was good but not great. Whilst one of the main course (fish) was tasty, the other improvised vegetarian option (Ravioli ) was done extremely poor and lacked on the flavor side. Starters were mediocre. Desserts was nice. Concerning fact: Although this was my forth visit in the restaurant, one of the waiters just decided to assume that it was the first one and gave us rather a condescending attitude throughout the meal. There are many expats living in Amsterdam, not every English speaking person who dine in your restaurant is necessarily a tourist.. And even if it would be the case it shouldn’t have mattered. A bit of humbleness will not harm the place.. Something was really changed from The previous times I was there and that’s a pity because I had way better memories. There are plenty of good restaurants in Amsterdam, no restaurant should take their customers for granted. Food for thought..

    The food was incredible and the staff were extremely knowledgable about the dishes and wine pairings. The restaurant is intimate which really adds to the experience and given the menu is ever changing there is no excuse not to visit again! Amazing

    The food was spectacular! The combinations were creative, the fish was fresh, and the flavors were delicious. I most definitely would recommend this restaurant.

    One of the two pieces of pork served to my husband was not edible. All grizzly. My pork and his was a bit rare. Pork served pink, rare?

    The food was underwhelming including a melted blob of a dessert and soso starters. The service was so slow that we didn’t get anything on the table until exactly 53 minutes after we sat down.
