This lovely little restaurant had the perfect atmosphere, with only a handful of tables seated around us. We felt well attended, with drinks and food flowing. We had the chef's surprise 6 course menu and added a cheeseboard. Bread and two canape-like dishes were also...brought out on-top of the 6 courses (so 8 plates in total). I have not had another dining experience like it. The food tasted and looked incredible and each dish complimented the next. We hope to come back in several years to celebrate our anniversary.More

It’s a great place. Relatively small and not bang in the centre. It’s the food that you come for though. Six courses plus a few extra amouses and petit fours. What I was particularly happy about is that often with these tasting menus you get...terribly excited after a few starters then the main courses disappoint. Not the case here. The chef keeps his powder dry early on and the menu builds to some really delicious mains. I was here with my family for my sons birthday and we were well looked after and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food and the evening as a whole. The bill when it came was very reasonable and I thought it represented excellent value for money for the quality of cuisine (you’ll spend double at some restaurants in the centre). Would definitely recommend. We will return. I am sure it’s Michelin star is just round the corner (when presumably they’ll put their prices up, so get in there while you can!)More

We went for the 5 course tasting menu and wine by the glass to match the courses which was great. Food was amazing. Atmosphere was relaxed and not stuffy, staff were friendly. It was for a special birthday and certainly fitted the bill!

We went for the 6 course tasting menu and it was amazing. Service was attentive but discreet. We sat near to the kitchen so we could see the attention to detail from the chefs. We went for the wine by the glass to match the...courses and the variety of wine was fantastic too. So ultimately a wide variety of food having gone for the meat and fish dishes - every mouthful was really tasty.More

this restaurant was in the vicinity of where we stayed in Amsterdam. It was recommended in our guide book and received rave reviews on Tripadvisor. Congratulations to my guidebook (lonely planet) and Tripadviser, this restaurant is exceptional. The small front of house team managed a...full restaurant, switching easily between multiple languages. The kitchen team produced food of a high standard. My wife went vegetarian. I had meat and fish. None of the 10 dishes disappointed. Even better, the matching wines were perfect accompaniments for the food. A word of warning: there isn't a menu; the food presented reflects what is in season and available. The choice will be the number of courses you choose (4-6), but don't let that put you off, they will respect any food allergies preferences and create a lovely memory for you.More

We took our taste buds for a 5 course adventure and loved every course! Flavours were surprising, yet balanced. Friendly and considerate staff. Worth visiting this hidden gem at the end of Overtoom.

Great and imaginative food expertly prepared and served. From the amuse bouches, through 6 courses, a cheese plate and wine pairings, everything was amazing. Would happily return any time. Adam is also great value. Inexpensive for the quality of the experience.

The format of a “surprise menu, either carnivore or vegetarian” took a bit of faith but my dinner at Restaurant Adam was very good, the staff are organised and efficient and the service is perfect. The menu is creative yet un-pretentious, delivering flavoursome, unfussy dishes...with obvious technical skill and attention to detail. I look forward to my next visit.More

The food was delicious and served with style. There’s a choice of 4 course, 5 course or 6 course surprise tasting menus (meat & fish or vegetarian). The wines by the glass were well priced.

We fancied trying out a restaurant for a gastronomic experience during our Easter weekend to Amsterdam. We liked the look of Adam restaurant and it had good reviews so we booked a table. We were delighted with our choice. Excellent service, excellent food. Exactly what...we had hoped for. We would highly recommend a visit.More

Hi there isn’t a menu per se. you pick fish and meat or vegetarian, 4, 5, or 6 courses. Chef makes whatever he has sourced and feels like making. That’s the fun of it. It was fantastic!!
