Service Sucked!

Member Rating 1 out of 5 by steve crocker on July 15, 2009

food was ok - manager and waitress were rude. we came with a party of six very hungry, tired people on a slowish wednesday evening. (by the time we left the place was totally empty - this place might not last long...) the only table we were offered was right next to the kitchen, in a walk-way. we asked to wait for a nearby table for six with a family paying the bill. we were told that table was reserved, the table by the kitchen was the only choice. desperate, we agreed. after sitting empty for 40 minutes, they finally seated a party at that table. they had to walk right past an empty table for three to seat this party of three at the table for six we requested. kinda rubbed me wrong...

then she forgot part of the order, had to be reminded several times... food gets cold while waiting... etc....

also - they won't provide tap water. at all. i'm not picky about the water i drink - clean tap water is fine for me. and i'd rather not spend 1.5 euros PER GLASS for their "purified" drinking water. at a restaurant that serves potentially spicy food, this seems like a blatant rip-off.

i'm sure there are many far less pretentious, less expensive rijsttafel restaurants in Amsterdam - keep looking...
