This must be the best light meal place in Amsterdam. I\'ve never tasted better \"cakes\" in The Netherlands than Pompadour\'s (leaving aside the fact that there is little competition), and the savoury menu is not dissapointing. The food is interesting, different, obviously made with great care, and very appealling. Great service. Beautifully decorated interior, including shining washrooms. Nothing in Amsterdam can touch this in the highest light meal segment. Worth the money. A modern classic.
IENS has a good description of Groenendaal. We went there with older friends, and for a \"multi-generational\" visit it is perfect. The surrounding park is beautiful, and peacocks and rabbits were visible from our table inside the restaurant. The food was actually more interesting and \"degelijk\" than one dares to expect from a restaurant like this which could rely on the attractiveness of its surroundings. Good price-to-quality ratio, attentive waitering, and altogether a very pleasant experience.
