A fancy cosmopolitan atmosphere that is complemented by delicious food, Zaza’s is worth the visit for these two alone, but the customer service tops it off. The food is a little pricier (around 20€ for a main), but worth it. It’s creative and different, with a wide variety of options on the menu. Book in advance though, as a local and tourist favourite, the restaurant can get busy!

Vinkeles is a restaurant that combines modern and traditional French cuisine. The menu has two options, an a la carte and a set menu with wine pairing. The food is expensive, but the courses are beautiful and tasty. There’s also a Chef’s tasting table option as well as a private room for 8 or more guests for an intimate evening with friends.
Understated and chic, this restaurant is elegant in its own way. The simplistic yet sophisticated décor means that you’re going to be expecting a good night out even before the food makes it to the table. Unlike a typical a la carte restaurant, Vermeer’s Michelin Star chef creates concoctions from local ingredients which are fresh and innovative – but you don’t really know what you’re ordering! You order a four, five or six-course menu which is simply a ‘seasonal collection’ of ingredients, the order of which is not disclosed. A great place for those who love to try new things!
Only having opened in 2014, this Librije’s has already earned itself two Michelin Stars for its amazing menu. This is really a splurge on a dinner, but you will definitely get the bang for your buck! The restaurant specialises in European cuisine but with seriously experimental dishes, so if you’re after something different, you need to come here. There’s a set menu option for a set price, with wine matchings extra and of course an a la carte menu also.

With a variety of great delicious food options, Amsterdam’s Foodhallen is the first and best (so far) indoor food market in the city. Inside an old tram depot, there are 20 different food stalls inside catering to all tastes from organic sushi to American style beef burgers. You can grab a cheap eat here and as a bonus, each course can be from a different place, so you’ll never get bored!

A pizza bar with a difference! Sotto Pizza prides itself on bringing the real taste of Italian pizza to the Netherlands and does so with imported ingredients and close attention to the art of Italian style pizza making. You can be sure to find a pizza that you love, served hot and fresh from the specially-made wood-fired oven in the restaurant. Even better, grab a takeaway and eat it on the waterfront located right around the corner!

Famous beyond its visual appeal, this small pancake house is quirky and cramped, but in a good way. The ceiling is littered with hanging teapots and the food is amazing. This is a great place to go for a big feed on a budget as the pancakes are huge and stacked high with whatever topping you choose, sweet or savoury.
