30 of the Best Amsterdam Restaurants and Bars

Amsterdam restaurants are exciting. This is a city that pushes its culinary envelope on a daily basis while serving accessible food to locals and food travelers alike.

Many of the top restaurants are highly affordable, though the best restaurants in Amsterdam require reservations due to their popularity.

Visiting Amsterdam seven times has given us plenty of time to do our favorite things – eat and drink – in Holland’s capital city. 

Carstens Brasserie


Not only was the restaurant opened by a top Dutch chef, but its focus on ‘Dutch food with a twist’ caught our eye.


Seafood Bar

In a city with no lack of seafood options, Seafood Bar fills the gap between street food and fine dining.


Eetcafé Rosereijn

Eetcafe Rosereijn is actually a delightful Jordaan spot to enjoy traditional Dutch food, fine Belgian ales, and jazz music.


NENI Amsterdam

This restaurant serves shareable Israeli cuisine with influences from the diaspora along with lemon cocktails.

Sotto Pizza

Eating the best Neapolitan pizza while living in Naples gave us a critical eye. If you’re craving good pizza in Amsterdam, Sotto is a great place to find it.
