buffet van odette

I’m very happy here because of the good atmosphere. They serve the most delicious salad from the buffet and truffle cheese omelette. Also the aperitivo is highly recommended. Save room for the carrot cake, that melts in your mouth. Simple, yet so tastefully prepared. By the way…. it’s always busy but worth the wait!

 

 

 

 

Binnenvisser

A restaurant is like a family: it’s all about harmony and balance. Whether staff, visitors or patron, everyone is made to feel at home. That is what Binnenvisser is, a restaurant where you can certainly enjoy eating out.

You sit in a spacious bright location with high ceilings, high windows with stained glass and an old-fashioned bar. They have a weekly changing menu, mainly vegetarian, including a wide selection of natural wines.

The Binnenvisser terrace has a nice view of the park. The staff is very friendly! If you want to be sure of a good evening with the best seasonal vegetables and back in time with hip hop music then you should go here.

Binnenvisser is exactly what Amsterdam needs!

Toscanini

Sitting in this restaurant is like sitting in a local Italian restaurant in Italy. In reality you are in Amsterdam!

They serve great Italian food in a friendly neighbour hood-type restaurant. A friendly staff makes this a nice place to lunch or dine.

I spent some 2 hours here and enjoying every minute of it! Don’t forget to order dessert, I highly recommend their panna cotta al caramello…..just heavenly! Finish your lunch with a expresso machiato is always a good idea, it’s walking distance at Magnani next door.

For sure I am coming back!

Bon appetite!

Doverstreetmarket

Forget running. If you are an London local, or, like me, happen to be visiting and are looking for inspiration. You can spend your last hours of your visit in @Doverstreetmarket

Just by walking into this fashionable world you get the inspiration you need and want!

For a little break or lunch you have to go to the topfloor. Where this delicious cake of “Rosebakery” is waiting for you!

AESOP

The Australian beauty brand Aesop finally openend his doors in one of the most beautiful streets of Amsterdam.

The very first time I saw this brand was during my visit in Paris.

I immediately felt in love with the product and the interior, very well designed.

Aesop is well known for his rich bodybalm and handwash. It’s a pure joy in a bottle.

Leaving Amsterdam without visiting Aesop is not done!

It’s a cross between a restaurant and traiteur, serving fresh Italian food.

Wilde Zwijnen

Restaurant Wilde Zwijnen is a cozy modern nordic restaurant, located in Amsterdam Oost.

The interior is not typical Dutch, but with a Scandinavian touch. The restaurant uses fresh seasonal ingredients. You can eat in the restaurant or at The Eetbar, where you can choose to sit at a table or at a bar.

They also have a terrace where you can have lunch or have dinner, or just enjoy a good glass of wine in the sun.

What I really love abouth this place, besides the good food and friendly staff is the handmade ceramic serving plates!

 

 

 

 

Cecconi’s

It’s a modern-day classic Italian restaurant serving hand-made pasta, seafood and dishes from Nothern Italy using the finest ingredients.

The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. If you step into this restaurant you feel like you are in New York, with a touch of art-deco style.

Don’t forget to treat yourself with the tiramisu….so delicious!
