BAK restaurant is gevestigd op de derde verdieping van werkgebouw Het Veem. De ingang vindt u op de Van Diemenstraat 408. We werken enkel met lokale producten en serveren een gastronomisch tasting menu. Groenten hebben sinds het begin van BAK (in 2012) een belangrijke rol gespeeld in onze menu's. Sinds 2017 werken we niet meer met vlees van vee, nog steeds zit er in vrijwel ieder menu nog vlees en vis maar dus geen rund-, varkens- en kippenvlees. We leggen de nadruk op wild vlees en vis. Van deze dieren is beter te garanderen dat ze een vrij leven hebben gehad. Ook gebruiken we op deze manier alleen vlees of vis die op dat moment beschikbaar is. Wij zijn er van overtuigd dat dit de juiste weg is naar een betere wereld. Naast ons menu hebben we voor liefhebbers van (natuurlijke) wijn ook een zeer uitgebreide kaart en kundig personeel dat u hierbij kan begeleiden. Graag tot ziens

Came for an anniversary dinner and was not disappointed. It was a five or six course tasting menu and everything was delicious. Wait staff were all super friendly and meal was priced Right. My only knock is their lack of an assortment of liquor. Wanted bourbon but none available. Nevertheless this should not prevent you from going as their wine list more than makes up for it.

Great service, relaxed vibe, excellent food (two years ago). Went again recently and was excellent. Had a 10 course meal, very professional and great variety. Wine pairings were extremely diverse. GooglePlace - December 2017

The service is fantastic. Wines are really lovely and carefully chosen. Good ambiance. However, the food is...difficult. Having read many positive reviews extolling the virtues of the food, I was really excited for some creative and delicious cuisine. The food was definitely creative, but no course stands out as being especially delicious. The first course was borderline inedible (the flavor/texture combination was interesting, but very offsetting) and I found the main part of one of the dessert courses disgusting (and I think this is the second time I've ever had that reaction to food--I may not like something or may think it's sub-par in terms of preparation, but this was a different sort of 'uh, I actually can't eat this because it's really unpleasant'). The meat (fish for me) courses were good, but again, nothing stunning (and the purees that were served alongside the meat/fish were actually not very good). Middle courses were very interesting, some even being tasty, but I wouldn't consider any of them to be the pinnacle of culinary delight, which is sort of what I was expecting based on reviews. Overall, it was an interesting experience, with some very creative flavors/preparations, but I think there was more than a little bit of 'trying too hard' to be different/creative and not enough focus on making food that actually tastes really good, for which reason I don't think I would return.

We had a great experience having dinner here while visiting Amsterdam. Exquisite, interesting flavors in every dish. We did the wine pairing as well, which we would do again if we ever come back. Service was great and wait staff was friendly. Ambiance was clean and simple. Overall, a true jem in Amsterdam. GooglePlace - November 2017

Definitely above expectation. Wonderful menu with many surprises. I can see a Michelin star coming. Service very down to earth and friendly without any snobbery. Very good deal price / quality. Interesting location with view of the western harbor area. A true gem. GooglePlace - November 2017
