Restaurant: Le Restaurant (Amsterdam, 2013)

Le Restaurant beef

More than a month ago, we made a reservation at restaurant Le Restaurant, which has one Michelin-star (so we heard). It’s a small place (24 seats) near the Sarphati park and Albert Cuyp market in Amsterdam. The entrance looks like any other front door of a house. The windows are blinded with curtains, so you can’t look inside. Once we were inside the restaurant, we received a warm welcome.

Food ‘party’.

There is one set six-course menu, but there is a lot of choice in wine. We had a wine arrangement, a different wine with each dish. The service is friendly, professional and informal. We started with a prosecco and the first amuses arrived, series of small flavour ‘explosions’, and each of them just wonderful. The main courses (fish for me, beef for my wife) were really spot-on. In summary: great food served with delicious wines. I totally loved their Chardonnay. As one of our last dishes, we had a lovely cheese platter, served with a 2003 late vintage port and roasted nut-bread. I normally do not like goat’s cheese, but this one was very good: it had a soft and creamy taste, unlike other goat’s cheese. Our delicious food ‘party’ ended with two desserts: a fruity dessert with home-made rhubarb ice cream, strawberry, raspberry, white chocolate and rose-water. The second dessert was a dark chocolate mousse with plum paste underneath and wine cream on top. Lastly, we had an espresso and green tea with a plate full of wonderful snacks, such as macarons, Turkish fruit, caramel cookie, ‘kletskoppen’ and freshly baked madeleines. ‘Le restaurant’ is the perfect place for a romantic dinner, celebrating a special event. It reminded us of our (still) number one restaurant: Beulings. We payed 240 euro at Le Restaurant, which is a bit high, compared to Beulings that has a very similar style and quality. Therefore, I rate Le Restaurant with a 8.7 out of 10.
