A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Restaurant Johannes is zo’n restaurant waar je naar toe gaat als je een avond culinair verwend wilt worden. Het pijpenla restaurant aan de Herengracht is niet voor niets al jaren favoriet van velen. Chef Martijn Hendriksen leerde koken van onder andere Cees Helder en Robert Kranenborg en kookt met souschef Jeroen Verrips en Sam Ruizendaal volgens de klassieke Franse school, maar dan wel met hier en daar met toepassing van moderne kooktechnieken. De borden zien er knap uit met meerdere componenten, maar bloemetjes etc omdat het er leuk uit ziet zul je hier niet aantreffen. Chef Martijn heeft voedselverspilling tegengaan en duurzaamheid hoog in het vaandel staan. Van kop-tot-staart koken en niet uit het seizoen koken is dan ook waar hij voor staat. Het leuke is dat het hele team meedenkt over wat de gasten geserveerd krijgen. Vinoloog van het jaar 2018 Allesandro Matrone zoekt er de bijpassende wijnen bij uit. Je kunt kiezen uit een verrassingsmenu, maar ook á la carte bestellen.

INSIDER tip

Tip van bySam: De hamachi met haringkaviaar, zoetzure wortel, gerookte crème fraîche en mayonaise van mierikswortel. Die is zo fijn dat je je bord wilt aflikken.

    What a wonderful discovery. First, there is the superb waiting staff - enthusiastic and passionate - and a knowledgeable sommelier who loves wine; then the freshest local produce creatively combined to maximise the full flavour and texture in every mouthful. Clearly the young chef and his team are flavour masters. The setting is romantic, intimate and fun being the rear courtyard. The only criticism is a personal preference for some low background music to encourage the ambience. Overall a must-dine restaurant experience with a top chef and sommelier!

    It was our first meal back at Restaurant Johannes since the reopening of restaurants in the Netherlands. We were so pleased that it has maintained its excellent standards in every respect. Every mouthful was a gourmet delight and the service was faultless. The main course of three types of lamb and the savory “dessert” of foie gras were outstanding.

    The food was great, the wine selection too. Sadly we will never come back, what a surprise on out bill at the end of our diner. 20€ supplement for black truffle that we never ordered ... but present on our 7 courses menu, this kind of “tricks” makes the difference between a one star restaurant and the others.. that’s how you can brake all the work your staff do in the kitchen I one moment. However with the 50% réduction it was an amazing value for money

    Such a fabulous find. We loved the service, the mystery (of the menu), the ambiance, and the food. It was on another level. We are so keen to try this again soon, as it's the type of restaurant that makes any evening very special. We liked the chef arriving at the table and providing an overview of the ingredients and the flavours. Great wine list, and wonderful diverse menu.
