The Dutch version of Jamie Oliver's UK Fifteens, out in the Eastern Docklands.

"Jamie woz ere" was the spray-painted message on one of the walls of Fifteen Amsterdam when it opened back in 2004. He rarely is there, in fact - but the concept, of training up underprivileged youngsters to be chefs - is the same as in his other Fifteen restaurants.

Food and drink

Pukka modern Italian nosh, using fresh ingredients (Dutch where possible). The menu, which changes every few weeks, is shortish but interesting: perhaps marinated fillets of mackerel with beetroot, a mussels risotto, slow-roasted shoulder of pork, and an apple, cinnamon and raisin tart with butterscotch syrup. 

Ambience

Think open-plan kitchen, graffiti art on walls, and well-spaced tables over a big space. When it first opened, the place had a real buzz to it - it's much easier to get a table now. You can dine on an outdoor terrace overlooking the IJ waterway in good weather.

Service

Friendly, eager, efficient.

Location

In the Pakhuis Amsterdam, a warehouse near the cruise terminal. From the Centraal Station, it's just two stops on tram 26, or a 15-minute walk. 

Price advice

Three-course dinners, upwards of 35 euros a head, excluding drinks.
