A very lovely and authentic atmosphere with a beautiful view on city centre Amsterdam. Good for both lunch for one as well as a party of a hundred.

Went on recommendation. The place is beautifully presented although the food left a lot to be desired. My fish was overcooked and dry. Access to the restaurant is bizarrely through the station's e- gates. Service appeared to be indifferent. A one off experience.

The place is truly from another time. The service was great. We booked through the Fork. A true hidden gem. It's easier than expected to find it.

The restaurant is very impressive looking from both outside and inside. But that is the only high light of the entire establishment. The food was very lack luster. Chicken breast was tasteless and overcooked. They poured some sauce on it that tasted like Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup. Not even that was able to rescue the tough overcooked rubbery meat. My experience may be isolated, but that was the only experience I could write about. There are many other really good eateries in this area, so you have plenty of choices.

Unexpected surprise within the Centraal Station, great to take a relaxing break in such a beautiful historic settingg. Service was up and down, but they get large groups in here which is tough to balance. Bitterballen were delicious, seafood soup was a bit too salty. Odd recommendation, but the Delft blue toilets in the women's washroom are not to be missed!!

Excellent food and service. Highly recommend. This restaurant is something of a hidden gem set in the former 1st class waiting area on the first floor of the station. Best to book in advance online. We had salmon and beef in a goulash sauce. Both were excellent. Good choice of desserts too. Friendly, multilingual service and even a cockatoo!

Yu2019knowu2026the room is beautiful and the food is actually lovely but the service is baffling. They are not short staffed. The 6-7 staff people stand at the bar & chat while patrons desperately try to flag them down (trains to catch !) . A lovely atmosphere but more attentive wait staff would put this spot over the top!

We have had a 4 course meal for duration of 3 hours - we had to wait more than an hour per course. The food was excellent. However, the service was really bad, no smile and also one waitress was rude saying that we cannot order with her as she doesnu2019t have a machine and look for someone else by ourselves.

The best 6 EUR sandwich I've ever eaten. The lighting was great. Also there's a parrot.

Very nice aristocratic interior and delicious main courses and desserts. Also cool view on trains or on the city improves the impression. Very good

I think this is restaurant is such a gem. It's hidden in plain site at central station. It's a very big restaurant but with such character with the traditional decor. We saw so many cute older couples having lunch here. And rhe price is very reasonable for Amsterdam.
