In Park Frankendael, wat mij betreft het mooiste park van Amsterdam, vind je in het allerlaatste buitenhuis van Watergraafsmeer Huize Frankendael dit prachtige en bewuste restaurant. Hier koken ze volgens het Slow Food principe, wat inhoudt dat ze koken op een manier dat bijdraagt aan een goed, schoon en eerlijk voedselsysteem. Zo werken ze alleen met vis Goede Vissers, deze vangen vis namelijk met respect van de zee, vlees van de Lindenhof en gebruiken ze veel groen dat geplukt wordt uit hun eigen tuin. Chef Marc Wunderink weet mooie bordjes met veel groen op tafel te zetten die je in hun fantastische tuin of binnen in de sfeervolle ruimte kunt oppeuzelen.

INSIDER tip

Tip van bySam: Op een warme dag kun je jezelf installeren op hun verborgen terras met wat lekkers te eten en te drinken. Restaurant Merkelbach is namelijk zowel open voor de lunch als tijdens het diner. Wedden dat de stadse drukte opeens heel erg ver weg lijkt?

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 Alexander74,
Thank you for your positive review. Good to read you enjoyed our garden. When the weather is good enough we also serve lunch and diner outside at our terrace. Maybe you might enjoy this as well in future.
Kind regards,

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

We discovered this place during Restaurant Week and were so pleasantly suprised...this could not have been a better experience. The food was fresh and exquisite, and the wine pairings were superb. It was very much an authentic Dutch meal, but done in reconceptualized gourmet way. The service was the best I've had in Amsterdam. And the surroundings were beautiful, we ate outside in a beautifully manicured garden. Really, can't say enough good things about this place. Just wish we could afford it on a regular night out! ;)
