    Just had SUCH a lovely evening here. The food was delicious (and decent sized servings), the prices reasonable and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a lovely evening. I would highly recommend and will certainly be back!

    Good location, very close to Amsterdam Central Station. Due to the heat we sat outside, which was nice. You have a view on the river. We had a 3 course meal,for Eur 35, good quality food and nice portions. I had smoked salmon, a nice sirloin steak and cheescake. Loved all 3, especially the smoked salmon was delicious. The waiters were very friendly and quick to ask if we needed another drink or anything else. Will definitely go back.

    Really tasty food and very well presented. Main courses were quite expensive though and the portion sizes unnecessarily large! Friendly service and close to the station

    Excellent service and food! Went for the set valentines menu and everything was super tasty. The selection of starters were all excellent as were the ravioli for starter and fish for main. This was all topped off by a melting chocolate globe. All really nice with great service throughout

    Really welcoming staff and really good, fresh food. I've tried the 5 course menu and it was very tasty and the staff was always checking for us, explaining the new food and care taking. Will definitely come back for my next visit

    Fantastic food! Great service, with actual flexibility which is unusual in this part of the world. I had 1/2 Caesar salad and 1/2 goat cheese ravioli. Totally creative and delicious takes on both, one of the best lunches I’ve had in a long time, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

    The restaurant was close to our hotel and after a day of sightseeing that was a plus. The staff was so friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. Great find!

    This restaurant is definitely one of the best choices of dinner in Amsterdam, especially if you're close to the Central Station of Amsterdam. The modernized Dutch style cuisine was perfect, the presentation of the dishes were clear and humorous, and the price was unbelievably reasonable as well. When we found this restaurant, we were little bit tired of changeable weather of Amsterdam, and soon became vigorous because of the warm atmosphere of the place and excellent food. I recommend you to find same good feeling at this place :)

    This has been the third time we have dined at Grand Cafe 1884 during stop-overs in Amsterdam. Each time has been a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly, welcoming and attentive. We have tried the tasting menu each time and have been rewarded with chef's creative blending of flavors and foods. We find that we are looking for ways to make that stopover just to return to Grand Cafe. Thank you to the Chef and Staff for a wonderful experience!

    My husband and I stopped in Amsterdam on our way to Jo'burgh in part to eat at this restaurant again and will stop again on our return to do the same. The tasting menu is wonderful. The chef is a master at melding foods and flavors into amazing dishes, and the staff makes you feel like a favored guest.

    We went to Grand Cafe after a cruise and at the recommendation of the Movenpick concierge. We were delighted. The cafe was just that...a corner cafe with charm, a view and excellent food. We were nicely walked through the menu by the waiter. Added a bottle of wine that was reasonably priced. The presentation was amazing as pictured by the many photos submitted. We both opted for the tomato soup and it was superb and a very large bowl of soup. The veal entrecôte (seasonal meal) was also delicious. Cooked to perfection and presented with the accompaniments in an exquisite long bone. Cauliflower purée was a notable addition. We were way to full for dessert-maybe next time. Kudos to this fantastic chef.
