Alex + Pinard, de Oekraïense pop-up

Last July, wine bar Alex + Pinard delivered sad news: they would be closing their doors so the owner could focus on her other ventures (Bar Pif and two branches of Rebel Wines). However, at the end of last year, she ran into a former classmate who was toying with the idea of ​​starting a Ukrainian restaurant. After some research and various brainstorming sessions over natural wine, they found a middle ground: a Ukrainian pop-up restaurant in the space where Alex + Pinard had been located until that summer (on Dapperstraat in Amsterdam East). The dream has now become a reality, as Alex + Pinard is now dedicated to Ukraine, thanks to their Ukrainian pop-up restaurant.

Wijnbar Vindict

“What if we flip the roles?” thought the founders of Wine Bar Vindict. Instead of selecting wines to accompany your meal when dining out, why not have the dinner complement the wines? And so it was because, at Wine Bar Vindict, the focus is primarily on the wine. Richard Dietz and Roderick Meijer, along with chef Samir Doueiri and sommelier Jan-Jaap Altenburg, opened Wine Bar Vindict in Amsterdam-Noord, which has since become the new hotspot for the true wine enthusiast.

Le French Café Amsterdam West

In Amsterdam-Oost, Le French Café is already a well-established gem, and thanks to its prime location (the terrace enjoys the sun for long hours), we’re convinced that Le French Café in Amsterdam-West (especially this coming summer) will be just as successful. It’s quite obvious: when the Three Wise Men from the East (hospitality group 3WO, owner of venues such as ‘t Blauwe Theehuis, De Biertuin, De Waterkant, Arie, Polly Goudvisch, Moos, Bonnie, and Volare) open a new hospitality establishment, it’s bound to be a hit. Especially when the concept already has a sibling in another district.

Auberge

Fans of Auberge can once again sleep soundly, as this popular restaurant reopened its doors on 1st March, just like old times.

In September 2023, the owners of the Michelin-starred Auberge announced their bankruptcy; they couldn’t fill the financial gap caused by the pandemic any longer.

In addition to exceptional dishes with local and international allure, the wine selection is extensive. And then there’s the interior, which brings a touch of old Amsterdam with its unique setting.

Pepito

Authentic Spain, but in Oud-West. You’ll find it at Pepito, where not only the dishes (tapas) but also the chefs are of Spanish origin. Pepito Amsterdam is also a feast for the eyes and taste buds. The interior is exactly what you’d expect from a tapas bar, but just a little bit better. With hotspots like the one described above, you can expect a new concept to be well-thought-out, yet at the same time no-nonsense – and simply good.

Mokafe

On the outskirts of the Rivierenbuurt (Amsterdam-South), you’ll find a lovely coffee shop: Mokafe. What was formerly occupied by Lunchroom Bruist, you can now enjoy breakfast, lunch, and speciality coffee, but also find fresh sourdough bread and homemade pastries. A cosy place that’s also nice to have breakfast with the kids on weekends.

Café R. De Rosa

No-nonsense restaurants in Amsterdam are hard to find, but Café R. de Rosa is one of them. No oat milk cappuccino, just filter coffee on weekends. This relatively new bar describes itself as a ‘small neighbourhood café,’ and that’s exactly what it is. Don’t expect a brown café, but do expect a place with old Amsterdam influences, an extensive wine list, delicious snacks and small dishes, and staff that prepares everything with love.

Calisto

Calisto is a fine addition to Haarlemmerdijk. It’s part of the hotel of the same name and brings a touch of Rome to our capital. It’s a cosy, warm place with modern décor. The menu isn’t too extensive – unlike the wine selection. From biodynamic varieties to delightful Italian natural wines, Calisto has it all. Extra nice for spontaneous decision-makers: you can’t reserve a table, and there’s almost always space available.

Restaurant Elixer

Restaurant Elixer (Amsterdam-East) is more than just a destination for good food and drink. It has a social purpose: Elixer serves as a community centre and meeting place. At Elixer, everything is made in-house, from the extensive dinner menu to the furniture and basically everything you see in this place. A restaurant that connects people like this place does is rare.

Brunchdale

In Amsterdam-North, there’s recently been Brunchdale, a nice spot for a brunch where time stands still. They have an extensive brunch menu, including homemade banana bread, apple pie, and other sweets, as well as savoury brunch classics like egg’s benedict, avocado toast, and toast with smoked salmon and cream cheese. Fun to visit with the whole family, thanks to the cosy atmosphere and extensive children’s menu.

Warna Baru

On Jan Pieter Heijestraat, Warna Baru recently located itself. And that’s good news for anyone who loves Indonesian cuisine, because they cook up a storm here. The owners of Warna Baru want their guests to experience as much of the Indonesian menu as possible, which is why it consists of shared-dining dishes. Order two to three per person and taste the various flavours of Indonesia.

Pelusa

As if there weren’t enough, Amsterdam-North has another new hotspot with Pelusa. Under the motto ‘Come and enjoy life with us!‘, you can enjoy in an extensive four- or five-course dinner here, with the barbecue taking centre stage. For drinks, you can choose from a wine or beer pairing, and the rotating tap always offers something you haven’t tried before.

Smelt – Westerpark

At Smelt in Westerpark, it’s all about the extraordinary cheese fondue. Chic cheese fondue, that is. After a successful winter season in the Negen Straatjes, this restaurant recently opened its doors in the always lively Westerpark. Special cheeses, matching wines, and an extensive DIY kit to complete your holidays at home. Everything you need for a successful evening full of cheese.

Ah, another wonderful newcomer in Amsterdam-West! Near Bellamyplein, there are plenty of good coffee spots, and Skina takes it up a notch. At Skina, you immediately feel at ease; the space is bright thanks to the many windows. The whole concept is spot on: from interior to atmosphere to an extensive coffee menu. Add to that the fact that you can immediately tell that the staff has a genuine passion for coffee.

The Cottage Shop & Deli

The Cottage is expanding! Your favourite spot in Amsterdam-East for brunch, lunch, and snacks now also has a shop and a deli where you can find their classics to go. Think freshly baked scones, sandwiches, and cakes. Our happiness knows no bounds thanks to this great, new hotspot on Linaeusstraat. The deli is a few doors down from The Cottage.

The Genius

The Genius brings a piece of Brabant to Amsterdam, and it’s just as cosy as it sounds. With pride, they present the most authentic sausage roll in the capital, including perfectly seasoned sausage filling and classic golden and crispy pastry. The name of the restaurant refers to the genius of this delicacy that the owners adore. For those looking for something new, non-Amsterdam deliciousness, this is the place to be. Off to Kinkerstraat, then.

The Seafood Bar – Beurs van Berlage

Since late November, Amsterdam has a new Seafood Bar – and it’s in a very special location. In the Beurs van Berlage, you can now dine while enjoying a glass of bubbles at the latest addition to The Seafood Bar. In keeping with the adage “never change a winning team,” the concept is the same as those at Spui and Oud-South, and you can expect fresh fish and other seafood.

Kafé Kontrast

Kafé Kontrast is a great new hotspot in De Pijp with Indonesian and Scandinavian influences. During the week, you can enjoy dinner, and on weekends, you can have brunch. As expected from a concept like this, the dishes are exceptional and combine unusual flavours. From cinnamon bun French toast to a complete Indonesian breakfast for brunch, and Swedish meatballs and yellow rice with sweet and sour cabbage for dinner. Of course, all dishes are served with matching natural wines.

Oaxaca Amsterdam

“The owners say it’s like being transported to Mexico. We couldn’t agree more! At Oaxaca, you can enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine like nowhere else. Grilled cabbage fish, old-fashioned stews, and, of course, their signature Mezcal Marguerita. Exactly as you would eat and drink in Mexico, and that is more than unique for our capital. Add to that the special interior, with an overload of Mexican influences and details.

Onigiri YA

On Ferdinand Bolstraat, Onigiri YA recently opened, a Japanese supermarket full of tempting delicacies. As expected, you’ll find mainly onigiri, filled with salmon, avocado, tuna with mayonnaise, and wasabi pork, among other options. Open every day from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., but chances are the stock won’t last until then. The Japanese snack is becoming increasingly popular.

Mogu malatang

Mogu is the very first Malatang restaurant in the Netherlands. For those not familiar with the concept: at a Malatang restaurant, you assemble your own bowl according to traditional Chinese customs. You choose a broth and the other ingredients displayed in a showcase. The offerings at Mogu go even further than that: for those struggling to choose, they also offer Thom Kha Kai and miso soup.

Bar Babar

Sometimes there are those restaurants that feel like they’ve belonged in the capital for years. Bar Babar Amsterdam on Utrechtsestraat is one such place. In the heart of Amsterdam, you can enjoy a wide selection of natural wines, Amsterdam specialities, and an interior that momentarily transports you to Paris. What’s even better: much of what they serve is local, from the bread to the cheeses.

Wijnbar Vindict

At Wine Bar Vindict, the focus isn’t on food but on wine. The chefs create a dinner around the available wines instead of the other way around. Additionally, this place offers something for every wine lover: they have more than fifty (!) wines by the glass and a selection of over eight hundred wines by the bottle. Leave it to the chefs to serve complementary dishes; all you have to do is select your favourite wine.

September

Restaurant September recently opened in De Baarsjes. It’s a nice place where owners Matthew, Valentijn, and Lizzy have realized their dreams. They work with seasonal and local products, so you’ll always find something different at September. The dishes are simple and straightforward, just like the wine list and the interior. That doesn’t make it boring, though; it’s contemporary and chic.

Saint Jean Deli

When the now mega-popular SAINT-JEAN was founded, the founders aimed to make the best vegan croissants in Amsterdam. They succeeded: their cruffin became a hit. When the owners saw the opportunity to conquer the building opposite their first restaurant, they didn’t hesitate. And so SAINT-JEAN Deli was born. Here, you can enjoy natural wines, savoury sandwiches, and their famous sweets, all while sipping on a good cup of coffee.

Bar Barolo

According to its own claims, Bar Barolo brings ‘la dolce vita’ to Amsterdam Oud-Zuid. We can’t help but agree that this is spot-on, as this place indeed offers everything that makes life more beautiful. In addition to an extensive wine and cocktail menu, they serve classic Italian dishes. The homemade focaccia (a must!), vitello tonnato, and melanzane are perfect for sharing, as are the pizzas – although you might prefer to keep those to yourself.

Klaproos

After a short break, Klaproos is back! And we’re thrilled about it. The new Klaproos – located at Papaverhoek 39 in Amsterdam-North – is just as good as the previous one. Think of freshly baked pizzas, a cosy atmosphere (including DJs on weekends), a bar that invites you to linger all night, and a place to visit with large groups.

Bistrot Les Zazous

The KNSM island has a new hotspot: Bistrot Les Zazous. A typical French bistro with little fuss, we could say. The interior is French, with dark wood and classic wine glasses (an important part of the offering at this place). The menu features many French delicacies: from duck terrine to grilled bavette, steak tartare, and escargots. Of course, a French cheese platter awaits you for dessert – complete with matching wine.

Linguini

Great news for lovers of Italian cuisine, especially fans of the popular Linguini. The restaurant has opened a second location in De Pijp. The concept at Eerste Jacob van Campenstraat is exactly what you would expect from the restaurant: authentic Italian, including pans of pasta to share. There are also delicious tiramisu, affogato, and sgroppino to top off the dinner. A great place where you can taste the love and passion for food – as only Italians can.

RIJKS 2.0

Recently, the brand-new RIJKS opened its doors. Expect something very different from what you’re used to from this classic. The surprising new interior has had a major makeover, as has the menu. Chef Joris Bijdendijk, together with his trusted team, is still at the helm of creativity. In the pop-up they ran on the Zuidas in recent months, they tested some things as a preview of the new flavours of RIJKS.

Café Restaurant Verlan

Remember the location of wine bar Envy on Prinsengracht? Since 2023, the brand-new spot Cafe Restaurant Verlan has opened in this old warehouse! A place where you can come for a French-oriented, no-nonsense menu from lunch onwards during the weekend. We’re happy about that because sometimes lunch in the weekend is so much more enjoyable than dining out late at night. Reservations are accepted, but there are also always tables and bar seats available for walk-ins. It’s a place where you can make it as fancy as you want. A full lunch or dinner or a cocktail or wine at the bar with some bites? It’s all possible! Read the detailed review here >>

Café Beurre

Cafe Beurre Amsterdam is perhaps the best new vegetarian hotspot in the city. Since opening, this restaurant has been full every evening. And we understand why! Café Beurre is an incredibly atmospheric restaurant with a menu full of delicious vegetarian dishes. The owners of this restaurant may be ‘old’ acquaintances for the foodies among us. Owner Kim Jongbloed previously worked at Balthazar’s Keuken, his aunt’s establishment, with whom he now started Café Beurre. You can immediately tell that the team is experienced in the Amsterdam restaurant scene. Café Beurre is simple but warmly and elegantly decorated. With a cosy bar, but also with white-clothed tables. Nice atmosphere, and it gives us a bit of a French feeling. Good to know: Café Beurre Amsterdam does not take reservations. Therefore, the atmosphere is informal and inviting to spontaneously walk in for a pleasant evening. Coming a bit early helps to snag a table! Read the detailed article here >>

Cafe Restaurant Metro

One of the most exciting new restaurants in Amsterdam North, hands down. And the good news is they have their own bakery, so they’re open early every day. The best time to visit is around lunchtime! From 12:00 onwards, they already have several divine dishes on their changing menu. I’d suggest ordering a variety of dishes from the menu, and don’t miss out on the snacks. Fill the table, add a glass of wine or another tasty drink, and enjoy! TIP: It’s also nice to combine a daytime visit with NXT Museum, right next to Cafe Restaurant Metro. I had a lovely, leisurely dinner here in the evening. Perfect for date night or with friends. Start with a drink and snack at the bar and then move to the table. You’ll want to try the whole menu, and coming back often isn’t a chore since the dishes change regularly. What I also appreciate is that the wine list here starts with genuinely friendly prices for excellent wines. So, one of the few new restaurants in Amsterdam at this level where you’re not immediately spending a minimum of 40–50 Euros for a bottle of wine. It needs to be said, thumbs up for the accessible wine list. Also, nice: they have a lovely terrace in the summer.

Le French Café

In the always lively and charming Javastraat, you can drop by Le French Café anytime of the day. It’s a modern French bistro where the menu is filled with the best from France, making you feel like you’re in Paris. The interior is amazing! Another thing I really like about this new restaurant in Amsterdam is that they’ve created several cosy corners throughout the venue. A table to sit at, small bistro tables where you can quietly read a newspaper, a cosy bar for endless drinks later in the day, and of course, a lovely terrace. On the menu, you’ll find delicious brunch dishes like Eggs Benedict, steak tartare, and more. After brunch, staying for drinks? Then Le French Café is the place to be. Their selection of bar snacks is so delicious that you might almost skip the main course for dinner. Although it would be a shame if you love fruits de mer! This new restaurant in Amsterdam is not only a great addition in every way for anyone who loves French food… you can also enjoy shellfish and seafood there. So, make plans for your next dinner date!

Next

NEXT at the NDSM wharf is the latest addition from the team behind PLLEK. You could consider it the bigger, slightly more mature, but still rebellious and unclassifiable brother. They’re open seven days a week from 9:30 am, so it’s also a great spot for breakfast. But maybe it’s more the kind of place you go to in the late afternoon for a drink. Then you end up not going home. You stick around for dinner (or even better, the chef’s menu, much of which is vegan). And even after dinner, NEXT is the place to be because the cocktail bar is where you have another cocktail and turn it into an (unplanned) party.

Chun Café

It’s probably a good thing that there’s always a long line at Chun in the Nine Streets. Otherwise, I’d have breakfast here every day with their delicious brioche toasts! In my opinion, these might be the best sandwiches you can get in Amsterdam right now. So my advice is: make sure you’re here before 10:00 am on weekends or go on weekdays (when it’s a bit less busy). It’s worth the wait. Favourites from the menu are definitely the bulgogi and the shrimp toast. Have a homemade lemonade with it. They also serve very good coffee.

When the weather is nice, it’s also great for people watching from the terrace on the always lively Bilderdijkstraat. And did I mention they open at 8:00 am?

Wils Bakery Café

Joris Bijdendijk (known from RIJKS* and Wils*) has opened a new venue at Amsterdam’s Stadionplein. Wils Bakery Café is a combination of a bakery and a bistro, the more convivial sibling of the Michelin-starred restaurant Wils located on the 3rd floor of the building. Wils Bakery Café is the best of both worlds. A place where the craft of a bakery and the cosiness of a French bistro come together. If you’re dining or having lunch at Wils*, in a more exclusive atmosphere, at Wils Bakery Café you can walk in without a reservation for classic lunch and bread dishes. Think of: the Reuben Sandwich, an asparagus quiche, and paté en croute. In addition, Bijdendijk and his team also serve their best versions of a schnitzel, meatloaf, and soft serve ice cream. You can also buy bread, pastries, and lunch to go in the bakery itself. In the summer, Wils Bakery Café also has a nice terrace on Stadionplein. Sounds good, right?

Café Twee Prinsen

Following Café Binnenvisser in Amsterdam-West and Restaurant Cornerstore in Amsterdam-North, the same team opened Café Twee Prinsen in Amsterdam city centre. Open seven days a week, from drinks until midnight, and on weekends also for lunch or brunch. As you look through the large windows from the outside, you can see the cosiness of a modern Amsterdam brown café. This is the place for good food and drinks, and when the weather’s nice, you can sit wonderfully on the terrace by the canal.

Helling 7

On the corner of Damen Shiprepair at the old NDSM site in Amsterdam North, Helling 7 has opened. One of the coolest new restaurants in the city, where you really get that WOW feeling again. As the name suggests, this restaurant with a large terrace is located in an old shipyard. Remember this terrace, because it can also be covered. The restaurant, with a view over the IJ, is built with a sustainable vision. Using reused materials from the shipyard like steel remnants, wooden panels, and ship floors. Fantastically well done! But enough about the interior because the most important thing: you can also eat very well here. I had an extensive lunch there and haven’t eaten so well and had such a good time in a long time. Dishes without too much fuss cooked over an open fire. Go taste it soon!

One of the newest restaurants in Amsterdam city centre is Sinck. If you’re looking for a restaurant in the heart of Amsterdam, look no further because this restaurant is located at Prinsengracht 422. Sinck is an initiative of Sander, Timo, and Sebas, who gained their experience at well-known (star) restaurants in the Netherlands. Chef Sander, known for his work at the Victoria Hotel, takes care of the delicious preparation of various dishes (if you check their Instagram, you’ll see they look very good!). Sommelier Sebas ensures the matching wines and gained his experience at places like De Librije. And finally, restaurant manager Timo ensures that you lack nothing. The restaurant is divided into a lower floor serving as a wine bar and an upper floor for more extensive dining.

De Gastronout

You might remember this restaurant under the name Bravour, but unfortunately, they had to change the name. The Gastronout is one of the new restaurants in Amsterdam East on a corner of the Dappermarkt. Save this one immediately, as it’s a neighbourhood gem you’ll want to remember! You can go there for drinks or a nice dinner. It’s a bar bistro, but the kitchen serves dishes with a worldly twist. For example, the menu includes mushroom ravioli, heritage beetroot, and rendang croquettes. If you fancy dining and drinking, reserve a spot at the bar where you’ll have a great time. Want to dine in style? Opt for the linen-covered tables.

One of the best new restaurants in Amsterdam North. Another gem from the team behind Binnenvisser and Café Twee Prinsen. Reservations at Corner Store are not possible; they operate on a first come, first served basis. However, the terrace opens at 5:00 PM when the weather is nice! For dinner, you’re welcome from 6:00 PM, and what makes the setting of this gastrobar particularly special are the shelves full of records. Inspired by music bars you see in Japan. In this North restaurant, music, natural wines, and a menu based on local ingredients, but with Asian flavours, come together.

Restaurant De Juwelier will be open for lunch and dinner, offering only an à la carte menu. With just 45 seats, I expect it to be a charming restaurant, making you want to return to Utrechtsestraat in the evening too! A starter will cost around €15, and a main course between €20 and €30.

A delightful Scandi-inspired menu crafted with local ingredients, expandable with various additional appetizers. If the raw langoustine is still on the menu when you go, you must try it!
