    Very honest and nice staff. We enjoyed the evening and the meal at La Début. Everything was perfect for us. (And a really impressive experience for our 14-year old daughter.)

    Stay at near by hotel for business trip and do not have a lot of time to go to downtown I saw on the fork this hotel school restaurant completely served by students of this school. The young service team are very friendly, doing their best to make you happy. Their dishes are inspired by local Netherlands grands chefs prepared with good intentions . Although some imperfections in the seasoning but overall a nice dining experience of trying local ingredients . A lady gave me a small brosure of the dishes , it was a interesting evening for me

    The restaurant is part of the hotel school so all people working there are doing so for their training. We had a lovely evening and were super impressed with the quality and service!

    This restaurant offered an intimate and very personal service, and marvellously inventive dishes. Some of the courses took a while, but this gave us the opportunity to talk.

    We had such a wonderful dinner at Le Début! The waiters were very attentive and clearly knew how to offer professional, fine dining service. The food was absolutely delicious, with my favourite plates being their sous vide goat and the Japanese sea bass. Their wine, although limited in choice, was perfectly matched and tasted divine. The small touches also really made it, with the Amuse, the homemade bread, the rather unique aperitif, and the way the waiters explained the dishes. Loved it! Best of luck to all the students there!

    Perfect combination of kind and efficient service. The welcoming was great! Food was on point, especially the cod. Been there a few times and this one was THE BEST.

    Very kind and dedicated staff. A very good experience. I just missed a grappa to end the very good evening. But a good experience for a absolute resonable price.

    Students were cordial and informative. Some first years were a bit nervous, but highly professional. The food was superb -- creative and very tasty. We did a la carte instead of pre-fixe and enjoyed our choices immensely. We would return often if we lived in Amsterdam.

    Fabulous high quality food at a fabulous price. Service was perfect and the waiting staff were happy and friendly! I'm not normally a dessert person but this was so good I considered asking for seconds. We will definitely book again next time we visit Amsterdam.

    Incredible student presentation! Service was attentive, 5 course meal from beginning to end was surprising in flavour, texture & appearance. Being the difficult customer I am, the staff handled everything perfectly. Only small irritating detail was the music...better choice in instrumentals is needed to compliment the food, mood, & clientle. Pop vocals was incongruent with the setting. The volume was turned lower after my comment which did help a bit.

    The service was good however we waited over 4 hours to have a 4 course dinner. Tobias and Mara were great hosts and made the evening enjoyable. However the speed of getting food was way too long and for that reason I would not come back for a while.
