    Compliments to the chef! The moment I saw that the restaurant offered a tasting menu, it was on. Each small portions of the dish was lovingly prepared and looked and tasted excellently. The play of flavors and texture in one bite was very satisfying. I also believe that the price is reasonable, typical for this trade. Lastly, the two floor managers worked so efficiently together. Encore!

    I did the 5 course tasting menue. Some courses were excellent, others were fine / ok. It took a vary long time, longer than the chef comitted to, as i was hesitant to order. The restaurant was understaffed. Although the service was great, the floor was serviced only by 2 people. I couldn’t wain any longer, so skipped the desert and opted for chease platter (highly recommend). The staff apologized for the delay, then charged me the full price of the tasting menue plus cheese platter.

    Really, really expensive food. They call it french inspired. We call it “nothing on the plate”. Food looks and tastes good but all the courses will only work if you took at.least 5 of them. Otherwise you will stay hungry. The menu is very small and food is “experimental”. The wine is ok. And as stated by others, you’ll have to bring time with. Waiting for the meal took 30min. Restaurant was nearly fully booked and so we got an ugly table near the toilet on a backside of a wall, separated from the rest - hard to be seen by the waiters and a cool blow makes us shiver. Defenetly not the right place for us. The price classification €€-€€€ is wrong, even for Amsterdam.

    My husband and I went the French Connection for our last dinner and Europe, which was the perfect end to our trip. The food was an absolute delight. Each bite was so unique and with so much flavor. Our waitress was also wonderful and helped us select the perfect wine based on our preference without trying to up sell us. I would absolutely return to French Connection and recommend to friends. Keep in mind, this is a truly European dining experience, do not expect to get in and out within an hour.

    Very nice evening, we all took the "Tour de France menu" and absolutely no regret. That was fantastic. Thanks to the French Connection.

    Slow food concept.. meaning taking more than 3 hours from start to finish of the tasting menu.. way too slow. Food was great though.

    Delicious food, but the portions are too small. I understand that this is a haute cuisine restaurant, and I get that all the dishes are entrée size and you need to order four or five. We went for the five course menu, and were served five delicious and well executed dishes, but they were just too small. Our bill for two (including a well priced wine) was €138. For that much money I should feel full, but I did not. If the portions were bigger I would heartily recommend this restaurant, but because of the tiny portions I will not go back.

    This is the second time we visit French Connection and for sure we will come back again. We (5 people) had the Dining City Deal (5 course for 56 EUR all in). The food was delicious with beautiful presence. The services were perfect, our waiters were very friendly and attentive. What a lovely evening again in French Connection. Thank you.

About the restaurant

French spheres

The French Connection is his name more than worthy. This restaurant has all the ingredients for a French experience. The interior is reminiscent of a wine cellar with great atmosphere and lots of excellent taste experiences in stock. Chefs Jef van den Hout serve specialties from various French regions. Of course French wines aren’t lacking, but non-alcoholic cocktails are also available. Encore!
