The best restaurants for any occassion in Amsterdame

This is probably the most common question I get in my life! Bea, you’re a foodie so where should we go to eat in Amsterdam, Stockholm, Barcelona, New York…you name it. Not beating around the bush have several lists on my mobile of the “must go” places in Amsterdam and I thought I’d just share it with you as well! Enjoy and if you make it to the end of the list you’ll have experienced a majority of the best places in Amsterdam!

Evening restaurants:

Vis Aan De Schelde – one of my favorite fish restaurants in town! It’s one of the first restaurants my boyfriend took me to and it still holds a very dear place in my heart. The food is always amazing and the ambience lovely

De Wilde Zwjinen – East side of town fantastic restaurant, been around a few years, a little bit more casual but still fantastic

De Kas – a restaurant in a hot house, they only use local produce

Guts & Glory – ask to sit at the bar. They have a fixed menu they change every quarter, right now if I remember it’s the Brittany one, but all the menus have been great. Trivia, I haven’t missed a single one!

Restaurant Moon– revolving restaurant on the North side of the city in the Adam Toren, great food, less great service but still worth a visit

212 – Michelin star experience – recently opened and already a classic, I’ll review this one separately because it’s a once in a lifetime experience

Café Bern – if you fancy down to earth fondue – a drink on Niewumarkt is always nice and a stroll through the Chinese quarters

Chin chin club – restaurant goes into club

Harbor Club– great sushi and a restaurant where you can go from borrel, to dinner to night club

Izakaya – great Asian restaurant, again sitting at the bar is the best experience in my opinion:-).

Ron Blaauw Gastrobar – classic in the South, good if you’re in the mood for meat. It should be said it’s lost a lot of it’s quality in the past few years but the menu is still nice and given the big location also easier to get a table

Maris Piper – sister restaurant of Guts & Glory

Pendergast – American comfort food

Bar Alt – new spot in town, haven’t had a chance to try yet but I’m sure you’ll get a separate review at some point

Bougainville – classic French cuisine in a newly opened art deco inspired hotel. Feels a bit like going back into the prohibition era in the 20ies in a very nice way. Food is classic and very high standard.

Breakfast and brunch spots:

Seafood Bar – packed with seafood and good after a day of shopping. They have three locations and they’re all pretty good but the Van Baerle one is definitely my favorite

Little Collins – Australian local brunch spot, always busy and loud. Try the spicy bloody Mary’s!

De Foodhallen -the food market, lots of different things to chose from but the Bitterballen stands and the specialized Gin & Tonic bar is probably my favorites

Teds – multiple locations around town and all day brunch – just dig in!

Krasnapolsky Hotel – also have the White room for dinner but I think this restaurant is a little overhyped and too stiff for my liking, better enjoy lunch in the lunchroom

Sunday boogie brunch at JD Williams last Sunday every month if you happen to be in town the last week of the month, also obviously good if you just want to enjoy a nice glass of whiskey before or after dinner

Baut Paradijs – nice lunch spot on the south side of town, Baut pops up here and there around town and always serves a classic menu with some twists

The avocado show – as the name says only avocado, expect a long waiting list!

Meatless District – Bilderdijkstraat 65-67

Cut throat barber Beursplein – brunch until 15.30 so it needs to be an early one (at least for me!) but portions are ample!

Pluk – busy lunch spot in the nine streets

Jansz– good both for dinner and lunch and part of Pulitzer Hotel. Trivia, the entrance is an old pharmacy, amazing ambience and also a menu for the more health conscious

Hippie Fish Zandvoort – outside the city on the beach, so a bit of a drive but the beach is beautiful

Bars: (usually the best option is just to go into a local brown café to enjoy a Heineken or two but if you’re in the mood for some proper cocktails check out below:

Pulitzer Bar– classic and always amazing cocktails, mixed to perfection

Van Puffelen – nice local bar with bar snacks – maybe visit Vyne next door for a super dinner or lunch?

Five brothers fat – champagne bar

Twenty third bar – Top floor of the Okura hotel – great view of the city – small bar, expensive cocktails and a bit of New York feeling

Marcella – truly local brown café, popular with writers and sitting on the Amstelveld is one of the best areas in town

Hiding in plain sight – old classic

House Bar – great cocktails

Butcher Bar – this is a bar hiding behind a snack bar, you’ll need a code from Izakaya restaurant to go through a hidden door in the back…enter a code…and then you’re in!

To Do:

Go tot he beach is actually a fantastic experience, I like to go to Noordwijk, maybe even stay the night at the

Visit the new vibrant west, I love Javastraat which is a new street with lots of little bars, café’s and shops

Ouderkerk – if the weather is nice rent a bike or scooter and go up the Amstel to Oudekerk, once there enjoy lunch at Ron Blaauw’s Indonesian restaurant, the rijstafel is big and yummy!

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and much more!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
