What do you think of "Nomads"?

It will be my husband's and my 10th anniversary while we are there in a couple of weeks and we've booked a dinner at a place called "Nomads" which looks funky and fun, but all I know about it is what I can tell from the website. Am wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this place. Or where would you suggest to go for this occasion?

As ever, thanks in advance...

There are many reviews at a Dutch reviews site, www.iens.nl .you can select English. There's one review in English which you find when checking the box "only reviews in English". Most reviews found it a wonderful experience, only 1 or 2 who were disappointed ot found food bad but that's a few years ago.

not sure what type of place you are looking for, but personally I would not have my 10th anniversary at nomads - yes it is funky, but it is a bit worn on the edges and the food (although exotic) is not excellent.

Depending on how much you are happy to spend - consider the Dylan (it is expensive though and more formal)

Or for a more moderate price (although not cheap): the Blue Pepper - Indonesian cuisine has a special place in the Dutch kitchen. It is not really a stunning looking a restaurant but the food is wonderful

Special but quite formal: de Kas - fine dining in an converted greenhouse. Set menu with all local dutch produce

Never been there myself, but seems to be a wonderfully decorated place with good food: The College Hotel Restaurant

For a more moderate price again (although not cheap) consider the Belhamel. Not the most exotic of places – french cuisine. But if you can specify that you would like a table by the window which gives you a beautifully romantic view of Amsterdam’s canals

I would definitely recommend having a look at Iens: http://www.iens.nl/restaurantsVan/Amsterdam/

Hope this has helped instead of making the choice more complicated :)
