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.

The 6 course chef's menu was amazingly great. Every dish was tasteful and delicious! We enjoyed it so much. Full attention from the waiters and a wide range of wines to choose from. Thank you all!

Our second visit to Johannes - and it didn't disappoint. Although just round the corner from where we live, we tend to save for special occasions and then go for the full 7 course tasting menu with wine matching. A lovely evening with great food, service, and wine which lasted a full 5 hours and at no point did we feel under any pressure from the restaurant to hurry along. Perfect evening. Its not cheap -but then neither should it be which is why we reserve for special occasions. Highly recommended.

We had the surprise menu. The food was innovative and delicious. However the waiters shirts were stained and dirty.
The toilets were also dirty. It is a shame as the cleanliness of the restaurant undermined what could have been a perfect evening.

Atmosphere is really nice, but service is usual. Some of the dishes are perfect, but some are so-so. Vegetables in dishes are not enough prepared. Tournedos is excellent.

Absolutely amazing dishes. With surprise menu there is always a chance that one dish is not 100% to your liking, however at Johannes every single bite of the five course menu was an explosion of joy. Wow. So good! We will definitely come back here.

The atmosphere is elegant and yet makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed. The staff is kind and very well trained. The food is amazing: very good combination of tastes, textures, temperatures. Strongly recommended!

A previous visit in June was fantastic, but after yesterday's visit, we won't return.
We were nervous when we heard the whole restaurant team had changed recently, and sadly this was fully justified.
We ordered the 7-course tasting menu.
Service started inattentive - we had to ask for menus, then the wine list, then cutlery - but went seriously bad.
First, I told a staff member that the bouillabaisse tasted bitter and unpleasant, and was told that if I had informed them before that I didn't like bouillabaisse, they would have served something else. That really wasn't the problem: the food was not good. But then my partner was served steak, despite the restaurant knowing she did not eat meat.
Overall, the food was nowhere near the level of 3 months before, lacking flavour, balance, and being served lukewarm.
We were unhappy at this point and debating whether to stay, when we realised our umbrellas had been given away to other diners by staff!
We decided to abandon the meal at that point, at the 5th course.
To its credit, the restaurant waived the price of the food, but we still ended up paying for the wine we had.
The couple dining next to us also made complaints about their food and left saying that it had not been good enough.
I would not recommend Johannes to anyone now, which is very sad because it was a wonderful experience before.
I hope to find out where the old team have gone to work however, because that will probably be a fantastic restaurant!

A bit more upmarket restaurant, lovely setting and attentive service. Went for the 4 course menu and they were accommodating for dietary requirements. The food is tasty, cooked well and doesn't push the flavour range too obscure. Definitely recommend!
