We booked Restaurant Adam based completely on the previous reviews from tripadvisor reviewers, the reviews were amazing and I have to say our experience was beyond amazing!

My wife and I were traveling to Amsterdam on business, and took the opportunity of meeting our eldest son who lives in Stuttgart, Germany to celebrate his birthday as it was on the first day of our being in Amsterdam, a fact I had informed the restaurant ahead of time

I booked online - an easy and seamless experience. I received follow up email and a courtesy call on the day of my booking to confirm my requirements- great customer care had started before we even arrived at the restaurant.

Upon arrival, the front of house staff (Robin) were super efficient and yet very friendly, gave us a choice of table,we chose the one in front of the open kitchen so we could see the chefs at work. They walked us through the menu and helped us to chose the surprise menu - one that if you love food you must definitely choose!

The quality of the ingredients, the care with preparation and presentation are second to none, each course was explained to us as it was presented at the table, The wine list is relatively small but well chosen - we started with a Raimbault Sancerre for the fish courses and switched to Chateau Musar for the meat dishes - well matched and with relatively small mark-up

At the end of the evening, the final dessert course, the chef had decorated my son's plate for his birthday - a nice simple touch, but one that made him feel special

We have been fortunate to travel to many countries and eaten in many great restaurants, including a number of celebrity and Michelin starred, I have to say the food experience at Restaurant Adam will remain with me of one of my most enjoyable.

Can't wait to get back to Amsterdam again!

We have visited Restaurant Adam on the occasion of its 3-year birthday and had the 5-course birthday menu.

We started with a very nice sparkling wine, a cava that had been matured for 4 years in the bottle. Very nice indeed.

Our five courses were (I took notes, otherwise I couldn't have described them in detail):
1. We started with skrei, parsnip and hazelnut
2. Cod with celeriac and a ''kroketje'' - a typical Dutch treat :-), in a poultry gravy and grated radish
3. Topinambour with white and red beetroot. Focaccia bread and truffle oil
4. Sucade (?) of calf. Brussels sprouts. Falafel
5. Chocolate mousse and a chocolate gel with pear

All dishes were delicious.

Also the portions were large enough (my wife couldn't manage the her last (fish) dish, so I made a sacrifice to eat her dish as well ;-))

Restaurant Adam held one of the high spots of our recent visit to Amsterdam. Outside of the centre just one street from Vondelpark, Restaurant Adam offered an uncluttered dining room but we were drawn to a small ‘chefs table’, just opposite the pass area. We chose a 5 course ‘surprise’ menu. Not usually a word I like to hear when it comes to food but ‘surprised’ we were, at almost every course. After an amuse bouches of pumpkin nearly every way you can imagine and a few you can’t, we began with a corvina fish course which delightedly set the pace and tone for the remaining four. Another white fish course, a vegetarian delight, a slow cooked (overnight apparently) veal course and a
chocolate millefuelle. All were really very well cooked and had real finesse along with a presentation which was very attractive. All our food was hot too where it needed to be. Great flavours, very personal service and some lovely wines which when combined made for a truly special dining experience which left us wanting for nothing more. Congratulations guys, you are doing everything right!

I have been here 4 times and all the 4 visits were fantastic. The quality of food is on point, every dish is well thought. The service is great and staff is super friendly. I can’t fault this place and I look forward to my 5th visit

Had 5 course surprise Valentine special. Each course was very good but the vegetarian course was outstanding. Would definitely recommend this restaurant- well worth a visit!
