Enté Amsterdam: the ‘nouveau pub’ on Lindengracht where you can drop in all day

You could almost call owners Tim Werners and Natalie Kouwen ‘old hands in the trade’. It was high time that the two seasoned hospitality experts and lovers started their own business. Previously, they ran BAUT together (with Labradoodle Fin) and gained experience at a wide range of Amsterdam’s hospitality hotspots. Now, it’s time to make their biggest dream come true. After extensive searching, they found the perfect venue at Lindengracht, where Enté Amsterdam finally settled.

Why Enté Amsterdam is an innovative addition to the city

“Enté is a reflection of the type of hospitality we enjoy and feel at home at, with the warm, relaxed atmosphere of a traditional pub, but with good food,” Tim enthusiastically explains about the new Enté. The door is always open, emphasises the hospitality duo who have dreamed of their establishment in Amsterdam Centre for years. From 12:00 to 00:00, they serve everything your heart desires, as they don’t adhere to meal times. “Everyone can drop by whenever they like. Everything is available all day. The kitchen opens as soon as the door does.”

With Enté, they cater to their own needs; they have never found a place that meets all your needs before. “We love a traditional pub, but often that’s just the starting point. Then you go somewhere else for dinner. We offer it all: from lunch to drinks and dinner.”

Menu Enté

“Good food for us isn’t just about working with quality ingredients, but also about indulging in hearty comfort food. And even though we make everything ourselves, our threshold is nice and low. That’s also convenient when you walk in spontaneously. We don’t take reservations,” Natalie explains their approach.

The menu includes smaller and larger dishes to share or keep to yourself. The spring menu includes oysters, oven-baked camembert with bread, potato croquettes with mustard mayo, and small duck sausage rolls. For those with a more enormous appetite, there’s steak tartare, pita bread with pork shoulder, celeriac with beurre blanc, and turbot. You’re also in the right place for sweets: alongside classic butter cake and a traditional Dutch advocaat, Enté Amsterdam serves chocolate nemesis creme cru. And, of course, an extensive wine and cocktail menu, personally curated by the owners, is also available.

Good news for those craving a Dutch classic like “bitterballen” or cheese sticks: They serve those, too. You have to ask for them because they’re not on the menu. “Regulars know we sell them under the counter,” Tim explains. A visit to Enté is an evening of pure enjoyment, a celebration you won’t experience anywhere else.
