Are all restaurants in Amsterdam open on Monday? Think again, if you assume that you can go to every cool spot on the first day of the week, you will come home from a rude awakening. Fortunately, there are plenty of restaurants in Amsterdam where you can go on Mondays, so we made an overview of our favorites in the capital.

13 X these restaurants in Amsterdam are open on Mondays

Eating out on Monday is not typical for many people, but deviating from your regular daily routine is fun. Therefore: 13 X restaurants in Amsterdam are open on Mondays.

Slope 7

At Helling 7, you can not only moor your boat, but you can also go on Mondays for an extensive dinner. The dishes are prepared intuitively ‘with fire,’ without too much fuss. You dine á la carte, but the three- or four-course surprise menu is even more fun. This way, you make Monday a little bit special.

Café Parlotte

Café Parlotte on the Westerstraat has a friendly atmosphere and staff that oozes passion for catering. You can sit at small tables and enjoy shared dining dishes in the long room with a cozy bar and lots of wood.
Westerstraat 182, Amsterdam,

Cafe Verlan

Café Verlan opened its doors earlier this year and has since become one of the best restaurants in Amsterdam, open on Mondays. That’s a treat because at Verlan, the menu is to die for.

Café Gitane

Café Gitane is a recently opened hotspot in Amsterdam-West, and open on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. For brunch, we recommend you try the shakshuka; for dinner, the kohlrabi and cod are high on the favorites list.
Jan Pieter Heijestraat 146, Amsterdam,


Lille is also one of the restaurants in Amsterdam open on Mondays. From 6 p.m., you can enjoy their extensive menu, full of French classics with a twist. Over the years, this place has become a household name in the capital because they serve classic but no-nonsense and affordable food.

At Troef Amsterdam, they approach it differently; they are closed on Sunday instead of Monday. That is good news for anyone who works in the catering industry and generally has a ‘weekend’ on Monday. The menu at Troef varies from Waterzooi to risotto and tenderloin, and we dare to say with certainty that this hotspot has something for everyone.

Café Caron en Cantine de Caron

You can have dinner at Café and Cantine de Caron on Mondays. Café Caron in de Pijp offers French conviviality, including an extensive wine selection and bestsellers such as guinea fowl and lamb shoulder. Cantine de Caron does not resemble its brother in terms of interior and setting. While the café is cozy and small-scale, at Cantine de Caron, you sit in a large room in the Westerpark. Both have their charm.

The Jeweler*

In 2022, restaurant De Juwelier received a Michelin star, but despite this, you do not pay the top price. The owners of this restaurant also own more high-end establishments in Amsterdam: 212**, Bistro de la Mer*, and De Mark. At De Juwelier*, the steak frites and cod are now being praised.

You are very welcome at Oocker on the Frederiksplein on Mondays. With more than 350 wines, their sommeliers are eager to provide you with advice and the tastiest bottles they have in stock on Mondays. Cauliflower, burrata, and steak tartare are just a selection from the menu, and make it – in addition to the extensive wine selection – worth spending your Monday evening here.

Café Binnenvisser

You cannot make a reservation at Café Binnenvisser, which makes it an ideal place for a spontaneous dinner on a Monday. Despite the changing menu, the cheese fritters are here to stay, to our delight. If you can get a seat inside, you can have a cozy dinner at the bar or at the small wooden tables they have placed in abundance inside.

Café restaurant Metro

Visit NXT Museum and stick around for the delectable creations of Café Restaurant Metro. It is a large space with many tables, but despite this, the staff manages to create a cozy atmosphere. The fact that they are open on Mondays is an extra plus.
Asterweg 22, Amsterdam,


We didn’t have a ceviche bar in the middle of the Amsterdamse Pijp yet, so Sjefietshe opened its doors after years of wandering around as a pop-up. Amsterdam residents are now in great demand, and that is only logical: the interior with light wood is pleasant and pleasant, the dishes are all equally original, and the location is perfect.
Van Ostadestraat 1, Amsterdam,

Caffè Pico

Caffè Pico is one of those lovely restaurants in Amsterdam that is also open on Mondays. The modern Italian café has a pleasant interior with dark wood and an otherwise minimalist vibe. Like the special cocktails they serve, the bavette and hamachi crudo are a consistent success.
Ferdinand Bolstraat 72, Amsterdam,


There’s a good chance that you’ve sat down at Café Restaurant Amsterdam, aka Cradam, – on a Monday or any other day of the week. This enormous building has endless tables and a terrace, but you will still receive personal help. Traditional Dutch classics (bitterballen, boiled eggs with green beans, cheese croquettes with fries, pasta pesto, and stuffed eggplant are on the menu. At Cradam, you dine no-nonsense, and there is always room.
