    I went to Merkelbach with my parents. Unfortunately we didn't have much time due to an event we had afterwards. But the waiter made everything possible, so that we could have a wonderful dinner in that short time. He explained the dishes very well and the three-course-menu was of excellent quality. We really appreciate the organic and regional ingredients the restaurant uses and its special focus on these topics.

    Food was ok. I wasn’t impressed; it was fine. Staff is very friendly. I would have expected more as the restaurant is keen on slow food. When in Italy, the standard is a bit higher. Overall, it was a nice evening with friends in a lovely setting. The set menu is nice but I think this city has better restaurants such as Breda, Restaurant 212, Beulings etcetera for set menu’s. I might return because of the staff and the garden.

    We had an amazing dinner back in July. The best dining experience in Amsterdam on one of the most beautiful parks. We were first seated at an outside table while we had our appetizers and few of our tasting menu but it started to get a little chilly and we requested to move inside. No problem. We were whisked inside to a newly set table with fresh linens and fresh bouquets of flowers. We finished the amazing dining experience inside and we had a fabulous meal with wonderful friends. We will definitely be back for another amazing dining experience the next time we visit.

    We had a wonderful evening at Merkelbach with a friend who was visiting. Service was very attentive, professional and friendly. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. I especially loved the guinea fowl our friend ordered, it just melted in your mouth. We look forward to going back in better weather and having a drink in the lovely garden. A perfect choice! I'm so happy we booked this.

    Dear Proever51123, Thank you very much for your positive review. We are pleased you enjoyed the food and our service so much. Indeed, in summertime the official garden is a very beautiful place to stay and enjoy nature within the city. We are looking forward to welcome you again. Kind regards, Team Merkelbach

    The food was good, better than I expected after reading some of the reviews? Definitely good food for the money. The service was better than average, but we felt ignored at some points. There is a way to make one's self available without being intrusive. They need to learn it better. The problem was that we were in the garden after dark with only a small lamp to see by, would have been nice to be able to see the food. Sort of like eating inthe dark, which we've done. Would definitely give it another go. Great atmosphere.

    Beste Andy, Bedankt voor uw bericht. Leuk om te horen dat u tevreden bent over uw bezoek. Ik kan me voorstellen dat het in de avond wat donker is in de tuin omdat we voor een minimale verlichting hebben gekozen. Momenteel hangt de tuin overigens vol met kerstverlichting! Wellicht leuk om te komen kijken. Hartelijke groet, Team Merkelbach
