    Wonderful restaurant. The food is delicious, interesting taste combinations. The restaurant is spacious with a wonderful view out over the Oosterpark. There are lots of plants in the restaurant which help to create a very relaxed atmosphere.

    Would come here again. Lovely setting, with great outdoor space. Food was brilliant and doesn't cost a fortune. Had a wonderful experience. Lovely find.

    Welcoming staff, nice place. We had a table on the terrace. Heating lamps later in the evening when temperature dropped. Great food. Great wine

    Everything was great: the food was very tasty, there is a big and very cosy tearrace and the staff was friendly and welcoming. We will go back again

    If there’s only 2h to eat, the staff needs to manage that it’s possible to order at least a main course and a dessert with coffee. Receiving the menu took long, the food took even longer and at 19:15 it wasn’t possible anymore to order a dessert. A bit disappointing....

    A beautiful place and a super friendly, multilingual service, I'm definitely coming back to taste some of their food (only had a coffee this time)!

    Our first trip to Amsterdam and this restaurant. Other than a miscommunication about adding some carmelized onions to the veggie burger (not an option) everything was wonderful.

    Last night we have been to the newly opened Park of Hotel Arena, as we like to try out new places in Amsterdam. The looks of the place draw us in, but there it ended unfortunately. The service was "amateurish" as one would not expect in such a place. The first thing that was mentioned about the menu was that 3 main courses where not available (!?!) Reasoning a grand opening and wedding the day before is not an excuse as it is all about good planning. Can the kitchen not be creative and call on some suppliers? The starters were okay, not too special. Chanterelle's were too blend. Then when the main dish came it was cold and had to send it back to the kitchen. I cannot remember the last time I had to send back a dish. The price of 20EUR for some cuts of lamb is also rather expensive if one has to add on side dishes (of which the "handcut fries" looked like yesterdays left over so crumbly they were) It all came across messy and foolish. So reflected the drama in the open kitchen and the food that came out of it. Missed opportunity

    The location is amazing. I was expecting much more from the food and from the service. The reastaurant was nearly empty and we had to wait quite some times for a salad and eggs benedict. It needs improvements.
