    We had such a wonderful dinner at Le Début! The waiters were very attentive and clearly knew how to offer professional, fine dining service. The food was absolutely delicious, with my favourite plates being their sous vide goat and the Japanese sea bass. Their wine, although limited in choice, was perfectly matched and tasted divine. The small touches also really made it, with the Amuse, the homemade bread, the rather unique aperitif, and the way the waiters explained the dishes. Loved it! Best of luck to all the students there!

    Perfect combination of kind and efficient service. The welcoming was great! Food was on point, especially the cod. Been there a few times and this one was THE BEST.

    Very kind and dedicated staff. A very good experience. I just missed a grappa to end the very good evening. But a good experience for a absolute resonable price.

    Students were cordial and informative. Some first years were a bit nervous, but highly professional. The food was superb -- creative and very tasty. We did a la carte instead of pre-fixe and enjoyed our choices immensely. We would return often if we lived in Amsterdam.

    Fabulous high quality food at a fabulous price. Service was perfect and the waiting staff were happy and friendly! I'm not normally a dessert person but this was so good I considered asking for seconds. We will definitely book again next time we visit Amsterdam.

    Incredible student presentation! Service was attentive, 5 course meal from beginning to end was surprising in flavour, texture & appearance. Being the difficult customer I am, the staff handled everything perfectly. Only small irritating detail was the music...better choice in instrumentals is needed to compliment the food, mood, & clientle. Pop vocals was incongruent with the setting. The volume was turned lower after my comment which did help a bit.

    The service was good however we waited over 4 hours to have a 4 course dinner. Tobias and Mara were great hosts and made the evening enjoyable. However the speed of getting food was way too long and for that reason I would not come back for a while.

    Had a really good experience this time! The staff were friendly and attentive and the meals lived up to our expectations, with the dishes being well described at the table. The wines are also pretty cheap for how good their quality is!

    The presentation of dishes was excellent, however generally all the dishes lacked flavor, were bland and under-seasoned. The Asian / Mexican dish lacked any specific flavors from either of the places of origin. The pannacotta and sorbet dessert was excellent, refreshing and with powerful flavors. All in all, well done and a good meal experience - despite the long wait between dishes.

    The value for money is excellent and you need to take your time to enjoy it. It takes a while before your dish is served.

    When you like to be served by (sometimes) inexperienced but very enthousiastic students, this is a great restaurant to visit in Amsterdam. We enjoyed our night out in Le Début yesterday enormously. Our waitress Ruby was clearly experienced and did her utmost best to give us a great guest experience. We also liked the personalised service of her colleagues. The food was really incredible!! And we thought it almost unbelievable it came out of a student run kitchen! We felt we were in a Michelin star restaurant. Thanks to all for a fantastic night out!

    First day of your new team. Impressing performance, by both the kitchen and servants! Apart from all the technicalicaties at a high level, also a warm welcome for and attitude to us. Charming and professional. A small delay in serving te first course was easy to overcome.
