Frenzi, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

After a great meal at Frenzi last year I wanted to dine here again, so I headed over on my last evening in Amsterdam.

I’d arrived during the pre-show rush (The National Opera & Ballet is just across the canal) so seats were at a premium. There were no seats inside and I was lucky to get the last table outside.

There’s a 4 course option (2 starters, a main and dessert) which is fairly good value in my book.

While I was waiting for my first dish I ordered a De Verboden Vrucht which is an excellent, strong Belgian dark ale.

My two starters were Vitello Tonnato with roasted bell pepper and quail egg, and Seasoned Turkish lamb skewers with a yogurt-mint sauce. Both were tasty and a good size for starters.

I took the opportunity to jump from beer to wine and ordered a glass of Italian Sangiovese which I quite enjoyed.

For main I had Spanish steak with patatas bravas and a fresh, green salad. Probably not the best steak I’ve ever had, but it tasted decent.

I’m a bit of a sucker for Tiramisu so I had that for dessert. It was a fairly good Tiramisu.

I do like this place, but it can be a bit slow during the pre-show rush. But once that was over things picked up.
