This place is amazing. Though tricky to find and in a warehouse, there are stunning views over the harbour. Ambience and atmosphere very special and staff incredibly attentive and friendly. We are foodies having been to some of the top restaurants in the world, and this place is bloomin' good and worth a visit. Informal and relaxing, a good vibe,... More

Absolutely amazing !! Went on the 21st of January with my boyfriend for a romantic meal and it did not disappoint. High quality food and fantastic service very impressed and though it was very good value for money at only €66 for the 3 course meal each two beers and two cokes .

This is a fantastic restaurant. A fixed menu with wines to accompany each course. This is fine dining but not super expensive. Amazing location, excellent service and a wonderful interior. Flawless!

My husband and I were in Amsterdam for a week and I had read about this place. We were staying on a island located near BAK, so decided to walk. Wrong move. There are literally no directions or signs and even businesses and people who work and live on the same street, could not help us find the location. We... More

We tried to book a table for one of the evenings but it was impossible to get a spot, so we decided to go for lunch on a Sunday. The food was great! The staff was super friendly and even got me to dare to try something out of my comfort zone. Definitely recommend!

I went to dinner here with three vegetarians and had the most amazing meal. So delicious, creative and varied. I am not vegetarian so enjoyed the delicious wild duck and my vegetarian companions had equally spectacular dishes. You need to go to experience this outstanding food!

Went with friends. Fixed menu £50 ppp with additional dishes if you want to pay more. Food and service are delicious as extremely attentive. Wine choice is good; I would advice to buy a bottle as the 'glasses' are ambiguously small. Location is a bit difficult to find, the restaurant is on the 3 floor. The views are beautiful if... More

Staff at both Choux and Gebr. Hartring recommended BAK to us; that, plus inclusion in Eater Amsterdam's 38 best restaurants, was more than enough for us to give it a try...and we are really glad that we did. We think lunch normally includes both a la carte and a 3-course prix fixe option, but we apparently happened upon a special... More

This is a very upscale restaurant! . The restaurant is located in what appears to be an old warehouse of some sort. Newly renovated and very industrial looking. The floorplan is open with kitchen just off the dining room. I was a little disappointed in the views from the dining area. We were obviously up high and just off the... More
