Located just a few steps off the Rembrandtplein (Rembrandt Square), Brasserie FLO is a wonderful French restaurant with an excellent menu and wine list. If you like fresh seafood, i.e. Le Plateau de Fruits de Mer, this is the place. When entering the restaurant you will pass the display of all the fresh seafood of the day. Yummy.
I had the French onion soup for a starter. It was excellent with an aged cheese baked over the top and filled with onions in a hearty broth. I selected another appetizer as my main course, a house smoked salmon served over warm potato salad with a mustard sabayon. Delicious! If you like smoked salmon, you will love this dish. My wife had the vegetarian cannelloni with spinach and mushrooms and a morel sauce. She thought the dish was amazing. It was artfully presented and the taste was superb.
They have a very nice French wine list. We started with a glass of Chablis and then enjoyed a glass of Cote de Rhone with our main courses.
We used all the restraint we could muster not to have dessert. But I must say the dessert menu was filled with lovely French specialties.
When visiting Amsterdam, I can highly recommend a visit to Brasserie FLO.
