We went last night to Borderwijk again as we regularly do for the last 20 years. It is a superb restaurant. It does not seem to have a Michelin star. I don't know why not but it has nothing to do with the quality of the food. We have been to many Michelin restaurants, and Borderwijk food is comparable and... More

Bordewijk is a real classic for us, been there for as long as I can remember and still serving great food. The deco is a bit outdated but the service, food and atmosphere are just great. We had a great time. Make sure to reserve well in advance !

Since 2000 we visit Bordewijk whenever there is something to celebrate, like our birthday or the start of a holiday. We appreciate the constant quality and enjoy the different tastes and surpisingly combinations of really good meat, fish, vegetables and sauces. Together with the wines, desserts and cheese it is a true treat. Here food still tastes like food. Every... More

When we arrived we noticed they didn't have a Menu in English, the chef (who we suspect is the owner) came out personally to explain to us all the options on the taster Menú! The food was excellent, specially the prawns and the desert cheeses! Recommended diner in a great local setting.

We were tipped off about this restaurant because it is so unpretentious from the outside that you would not anticipate such good cooking. We had the taster menu and every course was perfectly cooked. This included scallops and fish - always a good indication of the chef's skills. The service was rapid and friendly but not rushed. This was the... More

It is a must for us to visit Bordewijk whenever in Amsterdam. The food is very good and it is a treat to have such a choice of cheese from a cheese trolley with a great glass of outstanding Port. Something that you don't see very often. The service if flawless, good selection of wines. Looking forward to our next... More

In 1988 I lived next door and eating here was a treat. After almost 30 years little has changed (maybe the chairs). Food is still very good and the service very friendly. If you are looking for traditional high end French food this is the place. Also enjoy the Noordermarkt.

One of the cities all time favourites and hidden gems. Classic dishes sometimes with a twist - really worth at least one visit and then more ...

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
