Restaurant Scheepskameel Amsterdam can be found in a rather hidden location, therefore it is pleasantly quiet. But the Location-Search will be so worth it! Right next to the Water you can enjoy your Dinner either in- or outside, starting with Appetisers and a three-course menu that changes on a regular basis. Usually they have four raw dishes, four vegetable dishes, five fish/meat dishes, five cheeses, one dessert as well as three cakes. I had their vegetarian menu and damn, I’m still dreaming of my main course, it was absolutely delicious.
Pieter Smits, who once worked at Hotel de Goudfazant, opened his own Restaurant almost a decade ago, Rijsel. As I’ve read it is absolutely one of the best Restaurants in Amsterdam, therefore it is always full and booked. Now, finally, in late May 2016 the owner opened a second Restaurant, Scheepskameel at Kattenburgerstraat. The expectations are high and have been exceeded during my visit. The Staff was very friendly and just in case I needed something, it felt like someone was always around to take care of. The Interior is sparse but cozy, and the Amsterdam sunset light looks and feels just magical inside.
My evening started with a Glass of Rosé Wine outside, before moving on to the Table. There was already bread with butter waiting, I loved both. The Menu started with Roasted Leek, Hazelnuts, Horse Radish and Green Apple. The main dish was my favourite, not only at Restaurant Scheepskameel Amsterdam, and I really don’t want to exaggerate, it was one of the best dishes I have ever had. Fried artichokes with hollandaise sauce, beneath potato pancakes and peas / green beans. Healthy, hearty, so simple and in combination just so delicious. I could have totally eaten another or even 2 more portions.. nevertheless, a cheese platter and red fruit with vanilla ice-cream (so yummy!) followed.
