In hotel TwentySeven in Amsterdam vind je een restaurant dat grofweg een jaar na opening al een Michelinster ontving: Bougainville. Wie over de Dam naar de poort loopt weet: ik ga een ervaring tegemoet. Executive chef Tim Golsteijn en een uiterst gemotiveerde brigade - van de rest van de koks tot de afwassers - zetten zich iedere dag keihard in om de hoge verwachtingen waar te maken. Geen wonder dat Restaurant Bougainville een plek is die internationale gasten graag aandoen.


Liefhebber van een goed glas wijn? Lendl Mijnhijmer, wine director bij Bougainville, werd in 2018 verkozen tot beste sommelier van Nederland. Neem je een arrangement bij je gangen, dan kan je dus rekenen op hoge kwaliteit begeleidende wijnen.

    Outstanding food and beverage service to the exquisite food presented in the seven course tasting menu merits the award of a one Michelin Star. A very extensive selection of international wines on the menu. Saying that for a solo diner, consideration could be taken to have a more extensive wine and champagne selection by the glass.

    We booked this on a whim last minute when doing an overnight in Amsterdam. This was an absolutely elegant experience from start to finish. I would suggest dressing nicely for this very special evening. We both had the 5 course menu which the chef chose what he would serve. This is beautiful, artful, interesting gourmet food! If you are someone who appreciates the taste and beauty of food preparation then this is for you! The dining room is elegant, the wait staff is first class and knowledgeable and very pleasant. This was truly one of the best meals I have ever had and visually beautiful! The pricing was excellent for the experience. One of us had the the wine pairing with the meal and that included five wines selected to complement each course. That was very reasonabl

    The food was ok, not special at all and definitely not to the standard advertised or the price we paid. The staff was very nice, super professional, and very attentive.

    Truely a must go, the entourage is just amazing and we had an exquisite 5 course diner with the best wine paring we had in years. They just opend so no star this year but next year they will definitely have one.
