A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Volt eten en drinken werkt als een magneet op gezelligheidsdieren. En dat is ook niet zo gek als je je bedenkt dat de service door sommigen als ‘de beste van Amsterdam’ bestempeld wordt en veel locals deze plek weten te vinden als er iets te vieren valt. Zoals het begin van de weekend. Op de kaart staan 19 cocktails die je helpen het feest nog iets fijner te maken. Bij Volt kun je aanschuiven voor een snelle burgertje, maar je kunt ook lekker lang blijven hangen en voor een voor-, hoofd- en nagerecht gaan. Chef Rick van der Meer maakt graag wat lekkers voor je. Ik mocht proeven van hun tonijn tartaar met wakame en shiitake en ik kan je vertellen, die smaakte naar meer. Wat ook erg prettig is aan Volt, is dat het met de prijs-kwaliteitsverhouding wel snor zit. Oh en ze hebben ook een fijn terras, waar het wel heel erg goed toeven is.

Tip van bySam: Volt is ook een ideale borrelplek. Ze hebben verschillende fijne drankjes op de kaart staan waar vast wel wat lekkers tussen zit. En natuurlijk horen daar borrelhappen bij. Wat dacht je van bitterballen (altijd goed) of een VOLTplankje? Een mooie manier om alvast even warm te draaien voor het diner.

    Excellent food and service but book in advance to make sure of a table because it seems very popular. Great wine selection. Starters were fantastic.

    Very friendly staff. Simple but good menu. Quality of food was really good. The crème brûlée was just amazing and I’m French so I certainly know a good one! Definitely recommendable place. I’ll go back.

    So delicious! Everything is beautifully presented and very fresh. One of the best seabass dishes I’ve ever had, and the creme brulee is to die for. Service was friendly and pretty fast. Definitely coming back :-*

    AMAZING ! Being expat, I never be really satify of the restauration of Amsterdam. Either the service is super bad or the food doesn't taste any thing. In Volt the food and the service were amazing ! I went there for the birthday of my brother and from the moment where we enter into the restaurant until we paid I've never been desapointed ! VOLT YOU ROCK

    A small out of town group from various countries thoroughly enjoyed our excellent food. The range of dishes was really appreciated. Atmosphere lively and fun. I will return on my next visit to Amsterdam.

    This is a great place to go for a fun, relaxed, tasty supper. I love the food (tonight the chef’s vegetarian special to start with, which was delicious, followed by the super tasty burger) and the atmosphere is always fun and the service attentive without being intrusive. Go try it!

    The place itself and the service were very good for Amsterdam, but the value for money was a bit too expensive. I would go back just for some drinks.

    We arrived 15minutes earlier than booked at this popular restaurant, but were pleased to be seated immediately. There was then a 40 minute wait for our main food order, but we did get bread and wine quite promptly, and we realised it was peak time for the kitchen.
