So if you are a fan of bread dumplings, goulash and the sort, this is the place to go. The deserts are delicious (I recommend the apple pie) and the staff are very friendly.
We tried this place as it was not far from we were staying in Amsterdam. Definitely better to reserve. We were luck to get a table for 1 hour, as a couple of other people that came after us could not be seated and left disappointed. I had the typical dutch plate described in the other reviews, but the mashed potatoes were mixed with spinash (there a choice), it was very good! The chicken breast was good too. Recommended, better to reserve though as the place is not big.

- Restaurant with nice Dutch ambiance
- The walls are peppered with lots of mothers´pictures
- Dishes are mutley/ mixed (they say that every guest brought some dishes at the opening of the restaurant, that`s why everything ist mixed)
- 3 course menu is luxurious (you should try the original Dutch food – e.g. Hotchpotch)
- Recommended starter: Mama`s happas (very delicious)
- Desserts are yummy, too
- Very obliging personnel
Conclusion: A lot of “Lekker” food for a very good price!
I've been here twice and it is my favourite restaurant in Amsterdam. It is supercozy and I love the concept of photos of Mothers covering every inch of the walls of the whole place. The plates, glasses and cutlery for each seat are all different from eachother, which is another touch that enhance the cute concept of the Moeders. I was told that when the restaurant opened, that if you brought your own plate, cutlery and glass and aphoto of your mom that you would get a free meal. And that's how the restaurant ended up with all the photos and the tablewares. I don't know how true that story is, but it sure makes for anice urban legend and enhance to the slight chic bohemian vibe of the place. The vegetarian food they had on their menu was good too!
The Food is seriously awesome here - so is the ambience - all the walls are full of Pictures of Mothers which gave the restaurant it’s name.
Prices are a bit higher than usual but a visit to Moeders is nonetheless recommended.
This place is called “Moeders”, which means “Mothers”.
This is easy to remember once you step in.
All walls are covered from top to bottom with pictures of women. Young women, grannies, pregnant women, you name it, it’s there. Overall the place looks pretty cozy and gezellig, I can certainly recommend it.
We walked in with a group of 8 people, 5 Filipinos and 3 Dutchmen. Menus were in dutch as well as english.
7 of us ordered the so-called “Hollandse Rijsttafel”.
From the website:
“If you want to enjoy a typical Dutch treat they serve a Dutch ricedish. You don’t get any rice, but all little bits and pieces of traditional Dutch home cooking.”
One part of the meal was “hachee”, which tasted good but not special.
The next one was “suddervlees”, meat that was cooked so long in its own gravy that it turns all soft and juicy. It was excellent, and I absolutely loved the “stoofperen” (stewed pears with cinnamon) and “appelcompote” (mashed soft appels, but not mashed all the way) that came with it.
This is the kind of dish that reminded me of grandma, and it was done fantastic!
And finally, there was the hutspot, or as they called it in english, the “hotchpotch”. Mashed potatoes with onions and carrots. For taste, there was thin slices of bacon in it, and it was topped with a typical dutch “rookworst”.
This stuff was gooood!
A bit unexpected, the Filipinos loved it all as well. No complaints what-so-ever.
Beer of choice was Palm, a very nice beer for beginners as well as trained beer drinkers :-)
