“There are all kinds of international restaurants in Amsterdam but it is less and less frequent to find one which serves genuine Dutch cuisine. This is one that does. We had some soup and the meatballs. Dessert: the typical poffertjes. Friendly service..” Mercedes D “Tripadvisor”

Wonderful authentic Dutch home-feel meals

“We were at Leidsplein, and was looking for Dutch meals, and found De Molenwiek with a board that says Dutch specials (yay!). As it turns out restaurant that specializes in Dutch food was not so easy to come by, in the middle of restaurants that mostly serves steaks, spareribs, pizza pasta and so on. We tried this thing called the Hollandse stamppot, which is mashed potatoes with spinach, with sausage and meatball. It was great and delicious. Husband had the beef stew served with mashed potatoes which was also tasty. And for dessert we ordered Poffertjes, the Dutch pancake with sugartop and butter, was great. We were served by Kintija, who is really friendly and patiently explaining about the menu to us. She stays and chat various things about Amsterdam environment. When you are in the Netherland, you ought to try the authentic local food, and De Molenwiek is a good place to start.” svTravellites “Tripadvisor”

“First of all we had two waitresses (one was done with her shift) and both were so incredibly kind. We had no idea what some things were and they were so incredibly patient and explained everything so well (and expressively!) The food was amazing. We came in on a rainy day and the warm potatoes and vegetables and meat (for my mother and sister) was perfect. I don’t eat meat and the waitress said she could have the chef make a special dish with vegetables just for me. So there are definitely vegetarian options and more especially if you ask. My mother was very nervous that the beef stew would be too salty but she said it was absolutely perfect. Nothing but good things to say.  My mother (who is a bit of a drama queen) even went back to speak with the chefs and wanted to make sure that I included that they “cook with heart” “ Google reviews
