Had dinner here with friends. 2 star restaurant. The food was excellent, although there was not one dish that really stood out, something we will remember a year from now. What was disappointing was the service. I do not mind casual style, but this was often beyond casual, more indifferent. Food was not well explained, order of (great) cheeses not... More

A business lunch that was time pressed but fred still managed to impress. Aa a vegetarian, felt like the menu was designed well and not a let down from the rest. Service was great to boot!

Fred Nijhuis is a dutch winewriter. Every once a while he organizes a wine diner in a top restaurant. So he did on October 04th at restaurant "Fred". Luckily I was invited to join. The wines were great but the menu served was superb.

We finally had dinner at Fred taking advantage of a type of dinner deal. Great amuses with varying tastes and great fresh bread. We liked the signature tartare dish and we upgraded the desert to a selection of cheeses, both of us being real cheese lovers: an amazing selection, compliments! However, all together the dinner was a bit too much... More

Visited the restaurant with 1 colleague from the US and 2 NL folks. Service was top. Food and drinks were excellent. Highlight of the night the cheese plate and dessert at the end. Will definitely recommend it, in case u r looking to celebrate a special occasion.

This seems to be the case for all Dutch top restaurants. At 125 euros for the menu this restaurant makes in my opinion little or no money. However the margins on wine are outrageous. Restaurant was 3/4 full on a Friday night ( in itself a problem). The food was unquestionably great but too much for me. I saw only... More

After visiting the bathroom, I thought i was in love. With Fred. While my friend gave the full go-ahead, my vegetarian restriction was easily bypassed by just not adding the meat/ fish. The champagne was devine, the gin (so i heard) was amazing, the food was great, the venue is like i'd have my house if I had the cash,... More

We found this great deal for a 5-course meal for 125 euros pp. As I ahd spent considerably more the last time I visited this was a Corleonesque offer - how can one refuse? The meal was everything we hoped for, attentive but not pushy service, great selection of wine (included) to go with the food and just a lot... More

It is something extraordinary and very different! It is an experience that you have to try by the time you can afford it! The menu had 8 dishes and every one of them was more than tasteful and amazing.
