Any opinions on Restaurant Fifteen in Amsterdam? From what I read on their Home Page, it is a restaurant that trains future waiters and chefs. Do I want to pay the prices shown on their menu for student waiters and student chefs?I've eaten in these types of restaurants in Canada. The waiters and chefs are usually close to graduation from training. New waiters and chefs won't be doing the bulk of the serving or cooking. I've had some very good meals (usually a little slower service) due to time isn't a great issue. Usually relatively inexpensive .
That said ...I heard you need to book well in advance
Never tried it but check on trip advisor for reviews
On a general point, I have often dined in restaurants attached to catering colleges. I have always found them very good because the students are being closely supervised and assessed, unlike many other rstaurants where the staff can be inattentive.

Be sure to read the reviews on Trip Adviser.I have and that is one of the reasons I decided to ask this question. Some glowing; some not so much.
