Westergasterras Amsterdam perfect hotspot for drinks and bites
I have a weakness for industrial areas with restaurants in former factories and warehouses like the Westergasterrein. In Amsterdam I know them all! To enjoy the end of summer to the fullest my love and I went to the Westergasterras Amsterdam for dinner. With a great view on the Gashouder where I spent many nights on parties. Good times! The Westergasterras Amsterdam is the perfect location for an easy dinner or for drinks in the summer. They have a great menu with bites, from prawn fries to bruschetta’s. With sunny weather you can enjoy chilling at the waterfront in one of the fatboys. The interior at the Westergasterras Amsterdam is industrial mixed with a lot of wood, design and brick walls. Love the style! Can’t wait to go back in the fall for a hot coco in front of the fireplace.
Beside the extensive drinks and bites menu the Westergasterras Amsterdam is also perfect for dinner. In the summer there’s a lovely terrace with heaters if it’s a bit colder. in the winter you can dine at the cosy restaurant with cool industrial looks. All dishes at the Westergasterras Amsterdam are friendly priced. You eat a black Agnus burger for only € 17,50 and spare ribs for € 15,- (those looked gooooooood!!!). I tried and tested the Thai beef salad and the grilled Dorade. Both delicious!
