Fijne Nederlandse keuken met verrassend resultaat,
prima beleving Score 8,1

In the heart of Amsterdam in two stepped gable buildings in 1614. The restoration has done wonders. everything is taken care of down to the last detail and that is what they notice about the influx of many foreign guests and business people. Yves van der Hoff brings the international style in terms of cuisine, but mainly uses Dutch and regional products. He calls it “the fine Dutch cuisine.” Simple, tasty and fine. especially the total taste picture is striking here. You continue to taste each ingredient individually. The sauces are also of a high standard, as are the cuissons of each dish. This gives a surprising result. This is much more than a tourist restaurant. The wine list is excellent, with items from all over the world. The combinations are without exception of a high level, with filling wines and the rich taste of the dish. Owner and host Jim van der Hoff (father of) is a great enthusiast and you can see that on the wine list. Control and so on here, with a lot of attention for the guests. Quality, location and experience they allay the higher pricing.

Very good Standard

The authentic interior of these two buildings with stepped gables, dating back to 1614, has stood the test of time, retaining features such as a warm open hearth with matching tiles. In stark contrast with the decor, the food is modern down to the last detail. The young chef works mainly with Dutch ingredients and has a well-deserved reputation.

De Silveren Spiegel 14.5/20

Near Central Station is the hidden gem De Silveren Spiegel run by the couple Van der Hoff, their son and executive chef Yves. In the 17th-century intimate-home house a number of refined Dutch dishes are on the table. We taste beautiful amuses, wild gourmets and smoked, wild duck from the Netherlands and turnip in salt crust, with chicory compote, egg yolk, hazelnut and mushroom currant juice. The dessert with licorice mousse is soft, sweet, crunchy, fluffy and salty: a perfect harmony. We praise the young talented chef who cooked excellent. Add to this the timing of the service – well-informed about the culinary level as well as the area of the wine but also aware of the history of the building – and you have a great evening.
