De Struisvogel, Amsterdam

Restaurant de Struisvogel is an amazing little find in the Jordaaner district of Amsterdam. It's tucked down a steep little stairs in the basement of a corner building on the canal edge. In here you'll find a small and charming little gem!

de Struisvogel offers an amazing 3 course menu for €23.50 which features organic or free range meat only. On the night I visited, I chose scallops for my starter (served perfectly cooked) while I went for ostrich steak (not surprisingly, incurs €3 supplement) for my main. The steak was delicious and came served with wilted spinach and a few little roast potato wedges. My dining companion went for the blinis to start, which she followed with the delicious truffle risotto. For desert I chose the apple and rhubarb crumble, while my friend enjoyed the traditional stroopwafel.

de Struisvogel is a fabulous little restaurant which serves high-quality, simple, French food at exceptional prices. I know that I'll definitely be heading back to sample more of their dishes.
