If you live in Amsterdam, you’ve probably already heard about the A’dam Toren. It is the big tower next to the EYE film institute in Amsterdam Noord.
Restaurant Moon is located on the 19th floor and has a 360° panorama view of Amsterdam. Chefs Jamie Van Heije and Tommy den Hartog have created a modern menu that will surely make your taste buds happy. I was one of the lucky ones to be invited to taste their menu before it opened to the public.
I arrived a bit early and got a table with my friend Noor from Amsterspots.nl. Our first course was The Moon. Steak tartare with red beet, kaffir and a very subtle foie.
Our second course was a scallop ceviche with radish, green apple ice cream and wasabi. A beautiful and well balanced dish.
Then the eel came. Served over a thin layer of vichyssoise, crunchy brioche, avocado and green herbs.
The main course was beef tenderloin with peas and a bitterbal made with rendang. I love trying different versions of the traditional bitterballen and this one was delightful.
Our last course was the guardian angel. Blancmange (a milk pudding) served with yuzu, calamansi and caramel. A refreshing and light dessert.
Overall it was a great experience. It is not every day that you get to enjoy a well thought out menu with a fantastic view of Amsterdam. It is perfect to impress a date, or to just enjoy something different. For dinner, you can choose a set menu of 3 courses (€40), 5 courses (€60) or 8 courses (€80). For lunch, you can choose à a la carte.
