    The service is very good and the seafood is also super fresh. Really recommend to try if you want to have a seafood dinner. I love the lobster and fish soup very much.

    We chose the 6 course surprise menu. Every course was brought with a clear explanation of the ingredients, each course was well presented and delicious. When I didn't order any dessert because I dint like the choices an alternative was brought to me. Excellent service!

    John Dory is an excellent restaurant, as a guest you feel really welcome. Water and bread, appetizers and sweets with coffee are all free of charge. Something I always get when dining in a good restaurant in Paris but in Amsterdam rarely. The chef is great, the food close to a Michelin star and the staff is very professional. Very good value for money and a very nice place to go to.

    The food tasted fresh, the combinations were inventive, if not all very successful to our taste (sauce a bit distracting/overpowering on a dish, for an otherwise excellent fish and combination), service was friendly and attentive, staff were all knowledgeable about the food (not a given in restaurants these days), pity that when guests make a bit of an effort to dress up (not often the case in this city), the waitress and waiter were wearing jeans. A restaurant experience is foremost about good, quality food (and you certainly get it in this place), but "softer" aspects do play a role as well, especially when the cheapest menu starts at 48 euros...

    Very cozy restaurant and extremely welcoming staff. The service was fantastic, the food amazing. The restaurant offers a surprise menu and they also have extra options like Dutch caviar or Oysters. We chose the oysters, which were magnificent, followed by 6 courses (5 fish and 1 dessert) with wine pairing. A truly wonderful experience.

    Excellent food and service. Very positive overall experience. They could surely improve on kitchen's ventilation, since the smell was too strong on the ground floor.

    Spectacular food. Imaginative and beautifully presented. Choice of set menus from 4 to 8 plates is very nice to cater to smaller to larger appetites. Nice, friendly staff and setting.

    Fabulous restaurant for a meal with friends. Small and cosy with a rustic look but the food is far from rustic!! It is top end cooking with really delicate presentation and intense flavour. We choose a 6-course menu which is just about right if you are hungry. You will think the portions are very small, but they are very filling as you move along the courses!!! Great service and a good choice of wines. The waiter was very knowledgable and made sure we were enjoying our evening. Not pricey for the level of cuisine on offer. Also catered very well for one of our party who does not enjoy chilli or other spices. Her food was cooked separately. Well worth a visit!!

    Really interesting setting - easy to reach on the Metro. We chose the 4 course chefs menu - with a local Dutch wine. Each dish was beautifully presented and the tastes were on point! Service was excellent and friendly. If you like your seafood, and you enjoy letting someone surprise you, go!

    Excellent food and service. We had the four course meal with extra oysters to start. Great place, built for appreciating foodies. Good wine list. Hint- ask for an upstairs table.
