    Delicious food, friendly atmosphere. We enjoyed the poetry evening, too. But a lot of the audience weren't buying drinks. Support this great cocktail bar and restaurant! Sam and his team support cultural evenings, so we need to support them.

    Labyrinth

    Thanks a lot for your appreciation of what we create at Labyrinth. Delicious food , fab cocktails and a cultural programme are very important to us, and great to have this acknowledgement. Yes the support is needed to keep these special evenings going.

    Little gem. All the staff were both professional and friendly. The food was delicious; original with homemade freshness and flavours. The cocktails were spot on with good flavour balance and the wine that we chose was great, served in proper, beautiful wine glasses. The space feels a little bare and a little chilly but apart from that, a big thumbs up! These guys know what they’re doing!

    Labyrinth

    Thanks a lot for reviewing Labyrinth. Great to know how you appreciated the cocktails and the drinks at Labyrinth.

    The waitress was “erg” friendly, helpful, patient and lovely. The food was “lekker” and it was such a shame that we got full quite quick if not we would have ordered more. Also, the restaurant is situated in one of the best places in Amsterdam- close to the Vondelpark. The drinks, OMG. The cocktails were very strong and “heel lekker”. Am definitely going back again.

    Labyrinth

    Dear Nosa, Thanks a lot for this very nice review about Labyrinth. We are happy to hear that you loved the cocktails, food and service.

    Tasty food and friendly staff. Unfortunately the service was quite slow and the atmosphere was’t great.

    Host or owner (not sure who he was) was quite rude as I changed the number of people online however the restaurant supposedly did not receive the change. He went on and on about how he should charge me for 4 people and was quite rude about it. The food was great but I would not go back because of his service.

    Labyrinth

    Thank you Andrea for reviewing Labyrinth. Great to hear that you loved the food. With regard to the reservation, we have informed you that it is important when guests make a reservation to adjust the reservation, when less people are showing up. This is also a courtesy to a restaurant from the side of a customer. If this does not happen, we have to pay extra costs for the extra couverts, that did not show up. Any changes in the system are directly connected to Labyrinth and no adjustments were made. We were not asking you to pay anything extra, we just notified you about it. We are sorry to hear that you considered this message as rude.

    The greatest ribs... so tender OMG!!! could have been cosier inside... price to quality is good and the food delicious, would recommend it more for a low key midweek than a celebratory weekend just because of the decor.

    Labyrinth

    Thanks a lot Lo for your review. We are working on the colours to make it more cosy. In June Labyrinth will be re-decorated. Thanks for this feedback.

    Lovely and very exciting cocktail menu. Cocktails tasted great. Food was ok but not very exciting given the price. Service was very nice but the overall atmosphere lacks warmth and refinement. A good evening but ...

    Labyrinth

    Dear Sophie, Great to hear that you enjoyed the cocktails so much at Labyrinth. Do you know that also our interieur has changed, and gives a much more cocktailbar atmosphere. Looking forward to receive you again. Team Labyrinth

    Nice restaurant, good food and tasty cocktails, although a lot of fried food. We went during the Poem night. Nice concept, especially with the supported music, but not handy when you're out with a group as we had to whisper during the poems. Also the orders got a bit messed up.

    Labyrinth

    Thank you Miranda for writing this review. We apologise that the service did not go as smoothly as one can expect at Labyrinth that evening, but we still hope you had a nice birthday celebration with your friends.We are only suprised about your comment on the fried food. There are many dishes one can order at Labyrinth,as shown by the menu on Iens and our website ( deep-fried is indicated) and more than 16 dishes on our menu are not deep-fried. For groups it is indeed better to arrive a bit earlier when Labyrinth Poetry Night is happening. It is crowded and 90% of the audience is there for the spoken word, music and poetry performances. Therefore we really need to take each other into consideration, when performers are on stage. We hope you would still like to get a new experience at Labyrinth. Warm regars Sam & Labyrinth Team

    Really enjoyed our evening here! Great cocktails, eclectic crowd and food was delicious. We had to wait a bit too long for our main dishes but in fairness they were very busy due to the poetry reading event. Poetry reading was fun but sometimes difficult to hear because diners were talking during the performance. Maybe a better idea not to serve food at the same time as the performances. We will definitely go back. :-)
