10 X new RESTAURANTS IN AMSTERDAM that you want to visit now

Amstel Boathouse: Go to the Amstel Boathouse for a good cup of coffee to start the day with, or for lunch or dinner. They have a selection of food from the land or from the water. We can’t wait to eat some oyster here at the big terrace while enjoying the sun. Perfect!

Morris&Bella: Morris&Bella turns around the traditional menu. Instead of vegetables and potatoes being supplements, vegetables are actually the basis of your meal and meat, fish or cheese is something you order as an ‘extra’. This way everyone can eat what he or she wants, and it gets more easy to eat less meat and fish. Winning!

De Kopstootbar: The Kopstootbar is where you want to go for some drinks (and maybe some dancing) with friends. But from now on, it’s also your favourite spot for some food in the center. Order a cheese fondue, mash with meat or a ‘Noordzeeviche’. Tip: the steak-frites with Hollandaise sauce is so good.

Rayleigh & Ramsay: At Rayleigh & Ramsay they have a concept that we, woman, love. You can tap your own wine from a wine dispenser, so let’s say goodbye to wine glasses that are only filled half. On the menu are easy, small but tasty dishes that go with the season.
