Restaurant Elo Amsterdam is a place with a deeper layer. Not only do they cook fantastic food there – the chefs previously worked in Michelin star kitchens – but this place also stands for connection. ‘Elo’ means connection in Portuguese – at Elo, they cook Brazilian food and describe themselves as a connecting food hub. Discover everything Elo offers – from a kids club to excellent food.

Why you want to visit Elo Amsterdam restaurant

Restaurant Elo Amsterdam recently opened its doors on Admiraal de Ruijterweg in Amsterdam-West. It’s been super busy since it opened, not just because of the excellent food. You immediately feel at home at Elo; the atmosphere is pleasant, and the quality of the food and drinks is far above average. But that’s not all: in collaboration with changing chefs, producers, and farmers, this place regularly transforms.

Connection is also provided for the younger target group: under the name ‘elo kids,’ there is a special program every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. According to the Montessori method, children aged 18 months to four years take cooking lessons and learn how to prepare a healthy meal at an early age. From planting seeds to learning where food comes from, baking muffins, and choosing the right pumpkin. According to the minds behind Elo, you can’t start early enough.

Menu Elo Amsterdam

The menu of Restaurant Elo Amsterdam varies but always consists of three, four, or five courses, which you can also order à la carte. You can get a three-course menu for €38. As a guest, you are part of the cooking process and dine in a space that flows seamlessly into the kitchen. You are, as it were, eating between the pans. Chefs Renata Szeles and Estela Barroca previously worked at various star restaurants, including Aan de Poel and De Kas.

In addition to Brazilian cuisine being central to everything the chefs cook, the menu changes weekly, sometimes even daily, based on availability. If you are lucky, there is a fish stew or shrimp with lemon. It may sound simple, but we dare to say that you have not tasted something like this before. There is opulent art on the walls, which also changes from time to time. The art provides food for conversation and thought – the owners only hang works with a unique origin or story. It makes Elo a place where the food connects, and the entire experience is one to talk about.
