    Really excellent food! Michelin star is definitely on its way - no doubt. Weird seating for a couple with a too small table and strange chairs. Nevertheless - excellent!

    Exquisite wine list, suggested with creativity by the sommelier. Excellent set of five dishes, very well presented and delicious. The building in which Bridges is located is an attraction in itself. Nice atmosphere and diligent, attentive, kind service.

    From the moment we arrived at the restaurant we were amazed. The service was fantastic with every single member of staff making us feel welcome and valued. We had a cocktail at the bar before moving to our table and this was delicious. The 5 course menu with wine pairing and it is the best food we have had since moving to Amsterdam. It was my husband's birthday and they added a few extra touches which made his evening even more special including some petit fours with a candle to finish. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

    Food to a very good standard. Menu very fish orientated but advertised as such so not a surprise. Vast majority was very tasty. Couple of things not to my taste including an amous bouche that seemed to consist of a raw carrot dipped in wasabi with some sesame seeds sprinkled on top which was just odd. Service was good and generally friendly. The atmosphere wasnt great as I was one of only two people eating lunch in an otherwise nicely decorated but near silent restaurant. Experience tells me that this isn't unusual in Amsterdam which doesn't really seem to have a restaurant lunch culture with many of the more highly regarded places opening for dinner only. Still, all in all I enjoyed my lunch a great deal. 3 courses plus various bits and bobs, a half bottle of modest pinot grigio, two vodka tonics an armagnac and service charge came to 110e (£95) which is hardly cheap but was reasonable value. It would be very easy to spend much more than this though so be wary if cost matters Overall, an enjoyable afternoon and something different to Amsterdams endless coffee shops, erotic boutiques and fast food kiosks.

    Place is nice and service is for once good in Amsterdam (!). The 5 course menu was delicious, full of interesting flavors. Only thing is quantity of main dish was a bit small. Price of wine glasses are unreasonnable (12€ avg) compared to bottle price. Fully recommend, even more if with offer.

    All of the dishes sounded great in concept but some proved to be so complex the flavors became indistinct. Langoustine with foie and two sauces is the best example. The foie was all that stood out. One less sauce might have been smarter. The greeting needs to be re-engineered. There is a single check-in for two restaurants and it took ten minutes to process 3 couples at 7 pm. Service began slowly and after one hour we had only had the amuse and first course. Things picked up after that though. Overall, it was fine. I don’t like the decor, which has many strange elements in particular mirrors with an overlay o brown smears like army camouflage. As with the cuisine, simpler might be better.

    Our waiter was fantastic as was the lady who welcomed us. Looking forward to celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in 3 weeks there. The wine is a little on the pricy side but there is a wide selection.

    Eating at the chef's table at a Michelin star restaurant is an experience every world travel will enjoy. The staff was friendly and described not only what i was eating but other dishes ordered! The evening was like a Symphony all flowed smoothly.

    Our first experience in a 1 star michelin, the diner was excellent but there was some things which could be better. For example the meat was great but the fish dishes were better.
