Restaurant De School is located in the open workshop of the former technical school in Amsterdam-West. The space provides a nice balance between the initial industrial function of the space and the restaurant’s linen and candlelight. 

Quote Het Parool:
'Exciting, sophisticated and accessible. What is pleasurable to this kind of restaurant is the combination of fun and sophistication that is reflected in everything: dishes are confident original, without "moeilijkdoenerij".'
