Dit restaurant bevindt zich op denk ik de meest schattige hoekjes van Amsterdam Oost. De ruimte is er eentje om verliefd op te worden, zo ontzettend knus en gezellig!. Eigenaren Isabel Casallas en Rob Hagen hebben de ruimte modern en sfeervol ingericht met mooie details zoals de kunstwerken aan de muur. Rob staat in de keuken en Isabel ‘doet de voorkant’. De gerechten die uit de keuken komen zijn ware plaatjes om te zien en smaken ook bijzonder goed. Een heel erg fijne plek als je op zoek bent naar een restaurant waar je lekker uitgebreid kunt dineren. En ze hebben ook een terras, dus ook op warmere dagen is restaurant Elkaar een goede optie.

INSIDER tip

Tip van bySam: Neem het dessert met merengue en grapefruit, een heerlijk fris dessert om je maaltijd mee af te sluiten.

Way too slow! It was 45 minutes between courses. Loved the food but we were next to a table with 6 really loud men (the restaurant was totally full)(not the restaurant’s fault) and it was torture waiting the very very long time between courses. We finally left before desert as we couldn’t stand it anymore. We really liked the food and the decor and the people were very nice. But it was a bad experience. Would try again in hopes that they could speed it up.

Loved the amazing food, the wines, the friendly staff. All in all a must “go-to”. One minor comment is the acoustic was not that good in the restaurant.

Stellar service, innovative and delicious food, pleasant location. I would like to especially emphasize the service -- a large group of us (around 10) descended on the place last-minute with only a reservation for 5, but they were very nice and accommodated us in the outdoor seating (which is shaded and very quiet), offering us the chef's 5-course menu, and with a vegetarian option. As the evening got colder, they even brought us blankets. I really appreciate the effort to accommodate us, and wishing the best to this business!

Tuna tartar with mango was great. We had also cod which was wonderfull. And a great surprise was the cheese cake. This was not the classic one but it was more than snoven expectation! Terrific!! What a passion by both owners( chef and wife) congrats!

The entire experience was wonderful and the best dining experience I’ve ever had! Everyone at our table raved about each course; the presentation and taste of each dish was beautifully memorable and delicious. I hope to come back to Amsterdam, and if I do, this will be my first choice for dinner!!

The food is amazing, although most of the plates have small dots of mashed potatoes/beetroots... Or else. Everything is very tasty and well seasoned, this is definitely of great value for the price!
The staff was ok, not too much efforts

Food of a restaurant with twice the price and prestige, very nice presentation of each dish and every detail tasted right (and a lot). Nice selection of dishes. Good wine list, also with many high value picks. Perfect service, presented each dish meticulously,contributing to a friendly atmosphere, nothing felt stiff, instead warm and relaxed.

We had the Chef's Five-Course Menu, and it was so good and well-presented. We also opted to have the the matching wines for each course. I highly recommend this restaurant, and a great value for the money.

From the moment we entered the restaurant, we were warmly welcomed by the hostess. The friendly hostess got our coats and we sat down on a table for three people. We were asked if we wanted to start off with an apéritif, and of course, how can you say no to a glass of cava! The menu was well explained to us (they just received the Bib Gourmand accolade again) and it was clear that they choose to work with season ingredients. The wine menu was varied, with old world and new world wines, and the prices accessible to everyone. They seem to focus on having unique wines that are not your typical day to day wines like the One Man Band we ordered, from South Africa. We all ordered the four-course menu and started off with an amuse bouche on the house. There is a variety of cold and warm starters, from dorade with a jalapeño sauce to pork cheek. For main course, I chose the venison in a clove sauce. Venison has its own very unique character but with the combination of ingredients, it was just perfect for an autumn evening. My partner had the truffle and ricotta tortellini and my mother in law the bavette. All in all, the dishes were beautifully presented, full of colors and very flavorful. It's been a long time since I have finally found a restaurant were value off money and the service is top notch! I'll definitely be back!
