'Heavenly Mud' is the literal translation of the name of this establishment, located near the Nieuwmarkt on one of Amsterdam's oldest canals. This is a modern restaurant with a bright and inviting interior. Of course, it is also pleasant (weather permitting) to enjoy your meal outside. The menu is very international - Dutch, French, Italian and Oriental cuisine are all represented (including a variety of vegetarian dishes). The atmosphere makes it a hassle-free place for a casual meal. Several prix fixe menus are available daily.
My husband and I stumbled upon this incredible restaurant one winter evening. It's located on a quite and beautiful street east of the city center, and it was such a treasure! The atmosphere was was warm and inviting. Even though there were larger parties, we were seated right away at a wonderful window table. The food is fabulous - as a vegetarian there were many great options and my husband, a voracious meat eater, found the quality and flavors of his dishes to be superior to any meal we had on our vacation. I won't even mention the decadent desserts! They also let us sit and drink wine till the wee hours without a rush, and gave us some great tips for the rest of our stay. We will definitley go back next time we are in Amsterdam and I strongly encourage anyone desiring a special experience to go!
Having been to the restaurant Hemelse Modder (which I believe is Heavenly Mud in English) each time we visit Amsterdam, I can say that we have never been disappointed. We have eaten in their back courtyard during hot summers and been glad of our woollen jumpers when sitting by the window in the bitter winter - but the welcome and atmosphere is always the best.
Surroundings are not chic but you may find the other diners of real interest - a mixture of families, young couples, both gay and straight, and those celebrating an occasion.
If you can only take time to venture away from the main tourist drags and see where the locals may chose to eat, you will be rewarded by a variety of local foods, reasonably priced wines and their speciality desert - Hemelse Modder. Need I say more?
