I did reserve this restaurant more than a month ago for our first night in Amsterdam. We weren't disappointed.We seated on the window table upstairs and it was very romantic corner. Our server, he was very professional in explaining their menu on each food item and wine recommendation. We tried the long tasting menu with the wine pairing.
Vow, every dish was the signature item on its own!
Perfect for our first dinner impression of Amsterdam!
We hope that we can come back here again!

I’ve always had delicious dinners here! Loved the Christmas dinners every year. Real hard to get in unless you get a reservation. Now I can make reservation online and I’m back in!
I had the most exciting fall tasting menu with 4 courses on a Tuesday and decided I want to come back on Friday of same week to try 7 courses!
Omg! I was in cloud 9!
The first 4 course was FABULOUS! The presentation was outstanding! All ingredients blends so well together but still can stand on its own. Very creative from the first bite to dessert!
So on Friday, the 7 course meal was also gorgeous and tasty and came to find out it was prepared by the sou chef ! Impressive
I enjoy this place tremendously. This is a must try place! I love the attentive service! The stories of the building and it’s histories surround. Beautiful decor.
Oh. And the dishes! I wanted to take them home!
Love this place is all I can say
Thank you

We love to visit De Silveren Spiegel when in Amsterdam. It's a beautiful old building, which is immaculately maintained, friendly and enthusiastic staff, and superb attention to detail. On our recent visit the five courses with paired wines was a culinary delight.
Bravo !!

It's the second time I ate at De Silveren Spiegel. The first time was a year ago. The first time was one was amazing but the second one left me speechless. Probably the best meal I ever had. The chef is a culinary genius and has evolved from last year. Can't wait to my next visit.

The food and wine were great. The building was so cool! The house is tilting, as are many in Amsterdam. The interior has not been renovated, which is great because you get a real feel of what original Dutch interiors were like. The materials, finishes and colors. Go upstairs and walk around to experience the tilt. The staff is great and encourages you to look around and admire the house. It's not crowded as they have limited seating. You will want for nothing. It's the only part of the trip we planed and I'm so glad we got to experience it.
