We had friendly service, the food was good and with option for typical Dutch dishes . We enjoyed seeing Elvis the Cockatoo being on his perch at the bar. Toilets are Delft porcelain! Worth a visit if you are at the station for Eurostar etc.

Very nice but, being French, during a wine opening, the wine is tasted by customer and the bottle is open 10mn after serving for that wine can be aerated

Great place. Excellent food. Poor service (wine came after our starters, we had to ask three times before getting some water, no one ever came for ordering our desserts). Last but not least, we saw a mouse walking on the bar between the sink and plate.

Wine was from an old bottle and it could not be drunk, yet had to pay for it. Food arrived quickly and the schnitzel was good, the Jager sauce was more of a tomato sauce with mushrooms. Better to have the schnitzel on its own.

The food is industrial and overpriced. And the stuff was really unfriendly: not even the slightest smile or communication, they all seemed deeply bothered by our presence or their job.. it is a pitty because the place is charming and authentic. Overall, we do not recommend it !

It's the best. The architecture. The food. The parrot. The waiting staff. All make you want to return.

Second visit here and not only have the prices gone up considerably, but the amount and quality of food too. Suspiciously came very quick from the kitchen and for what we ordered one would expect a wait, unfortunately was not even hot which made us think It was pre-made and left there. It was extremely busy and very loud couldn’t really have a proper conversation, overall a disappointing visit not tempted to return again given the price hike and food quality

This restaurant feels very tired - service was poor and food was mediocre. You mentioned a 30% discount which we did the booking under and it was not applied to the initial bill. When I asked the woman behind the counter said oh yes they sometimes forget! I would not go back. Our waiter was simply not interested.

There is no discount. You book a lunch, you get the dinner menu. When you want something from the lunch money, you get no discount. I wouldn’t like dinner food for lunch. Just a sandwich. The service overall was not so good, rude, not listening throwing plates on the table, walking away while ordering. The restaurant itself is unique. Very nice is the interior. The food was also not bad, they make good meals. Just the service and that they promote discount but don’t give it is not nice.

I would like to say this was a hard to find gem but it was simply hard to find - it is NOT across from the railway station, it is across from the trains IN the station and with no obvious signage outside. Once arrived it was busy and even though I wasn't expecting much from a typical Grand Cafe menu this managed to disappoint. The "double beef consomme" was weak and insipid and entirely lacking chives, the Flemish stew was delicious but may have caused serious intestinal distress at a later stage. Desserts less than "meh" in choice and standard. With 30% off from The Fork it was a tolerable experience but to pay full price would render it a woeful disappointment.

Really great restaurant. Fin de siècle ambience. You feel like you are just about to board the Orient Express. Service and food are really good, too. So overall a great experience.

Its a fabulous place to experience old Amsterdam. A hidden gem in Centraal Station, stunning decor & an extensive menu of delicious food. The staff are always friendly & Elvis the cockatiel is the star of the show!

This is an atypical place, like stepping back to another time. That being said, the menu is good and I really liked the space, 5 meter ceilings will do that, but as nice as our waitress was, the service was just ok and the food cold, it’s not so much a restaurant more a buffet in an amazing place, and, no, it’s not the best railway restaurant in Europe, that’s ‘TrainBlue’ in paris!

Wonderful ambiance , great Service and food was pretty good for the price. Dont forget to say hello to Elvis the cockatoo.

Very nice setting! The food was decent but not outstanding, but given the promotion through The Fork, then was good value. Unfortunately the fries were quite old and stale.

It was not our first visit to this restaurant and we were delighted again. The ambience is unique, beautiful, and in addition the always friendly regular staff. The food and beverage menus offer an extensive selection, but no matter which choice you make, you are sure to be very satisfied. Add to that the good fortune of being equipped with a 50% discount voucher from thefork, and the whole thing becomes a wonderful evening. P.S. It has always been difficult to find the stairway to the second floor at Central Station. But with the current renovations in the station entrance hall, you have to ask someone who knows the place for the hidden staircase. However, this should not deter you from visiting the restaurant.

Food is great and the place is very beautiful! This restaurant is inside the Central Station, a bit hard to find but worth the experience.

Cozy decor and very tasty dinner. Service was excellent, no matter in which order you want to order your dishes. We go again next week!

I’ve been going to this restaurant for many years mainly for its beautiful, elegant setting and its convenient location in the heart of the Central Station. The quality of the service depends on who happen to be on duty at the time of one’s visit. Today we were lucky to have friendly, efficient service from the staff on duty. The food (spare ribs, chicken saté, and calf’s liver with onions) were all flavorful and my guests enjoyed them very much. The portion sizes of the first two dishes were rather small, however.

Goed eten, plechtige ambiance, jammer genoeg afstandelijk personeel. Er is 1 supervriendelijke serveerster, de Indische dame, de rest is kil en zakelijk.

Food was very good! It was just a little bit of a shame that we needed to call the staff every time we needed something rather than them noticing.

it was great food and service. when we said we made a reservation through the Fork (including discount) website we received another menu. that made a strange impression.

Um restaurante lindo e aconchegante. A comida perfeita, simplesmente deliciosa. E o cafezinho no final? Que café delicioso. Os garçons muito simpáticos e atenciosos. Nota mil

staff wasn't welcoming, no alternative milks were available and no option of getting tab water for our table - I'd say that is standard but clearly not everywhere

Mooie locatie en goede snelle service. Ook erg goed eten. Echt een aanrader
