Café Loetje | Various Locations
For over thirty years, Café Loetje has served as a landmark in Amsterdam. Regulars and out-of-towners alike flock there for its homemade fries and juicy steaks, which many have proclaimed to be the best in the Netherlands. Amsterdam now has several branches of Loetje (and even more beyond), so there is plenty of choice for every carnivore.
Wilde Zwijnen | Javaplein 23, Oost
In Amsterdam Oost, on the recently renovated Javaplein, you will find restaurant Wilde Zwijnen. Do not expect an authentic Dutch interior but the focus here is on presenting authentic Dutch dishes, using fresh, high-quality seasonal products as much as possible.
De Silveren Spiegel
De Silveren Spiegel | Kattengat 4-6, Centrum
De Silveren Spiegel (The Silver Mirror) offers traditional Dutch food in the stunning surroundings of a historic building. The building and restaurant’s history stretches back to the 17th century, and De Silveren Spiegel’s elegant rooms, which have been left in their original state where possible, are certainly befitting its fairytale-like name. But the restaurant does not rest on its historical laurels: the food is up to the high standards set by the interior. And in the summer, there is a sunny terrace to boot.
L´invité | Bloemgracht 47, De Jordaan
Even though the restaurant has a French name, L'Invité offers modern Dutch cuisine, taking you on a culinary journey through the Netherlands. The chefs love the local farmers, fishermen, hunters, wine and cheese makers. Light, local and sustainable. It's all about tasting the pure products from Dutch soil.
