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!

Bar Parry

For those who like a small bite, you are at the right place here. This cozy place is located in de Jordaan.

They serve great wines and good food. The staff is very friendly. So if you are in the neighbourhood you definitely have to visit this place.

 

 

 

 

 

Mondo Mediterraneo

If you are looking for a slice of La Dolce Vita without leaving Amsterdam, check out Mondo Mediterraneo.

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

Italian wine and coffee with sandwiches available to take away at luchtime.

You can’t get much more authentic than that….buon appetito!

 

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!

 

 

Kaagman & Kortekaas

Kaagman & Kortekaas,

located in a narrow street between de Nieuwendijk en de Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal. If you step into this restaurant you feel like you are in France.

This place is inspired by the style of contemporary bistros in Paris. The food is of good quality and affordable. Certainly a wonderful place to have an unforgettable evening!

L’industrie, café restaurant in Paris

Café de L’industrie is located in Bastille. It is one of the better steakhouses in Paris and has fair prices and a lively ambiance, very Parisian. A simple and effective menu with classics, all for a reasonable price. It is nice to eat in a large space, which is still rare in Paris. This place feels like dining in a museum, the décor is made up of old pictures and paintings on the wall and old wood panelling in its original place.
