Rembrandtplein 47, 1017 CT
Sounds dodgy – all-you-can-eat sushi – but is fantastic and more ‘central’ than MoJo

Mojo Japanese Kitchen€€
Oosterdokskade 133, 1011 DL
Again sounds dodgy – all-you-can-eat sushi – but is delicious!

Bistro Neuf€€€
Haarlemmerstraat 9, 1013 EH
Amazing – one of our go-to places when family are in town.

Van Beeren€€
Koningsstraat 54, 1011 EW
Great neighbourhood bar/food place with a garden in the summer but best to book as it can get busy.

Frenzi €€
Zwanenburgwal 232, 1011 JH
Nice little neighbourhood cafe. Good for a bottle of wine at sundown or a meal or a casual brunch at the weekend.

Bellamyplein 51, 1053 AT
Does what it says on the tin, a hall filled with food. Think of a food court but better food and drinks.

Los Pilones€€
Kerkstraat 59/63, 1017 GC

Hemelse Modder€€
Oude Waal 11, 1011 BZ | Book on The Fork and use code 7C90F385
Local neighbourhood restaurant

Restaurant Puri Mas€€
Lange Leidsedwarsstraat 37-41, 1017 NG
Nice Indonesian with a great ‘rice table’ set menu.

Happy Happy Joy Joy€€
Various locations. Fast Asian chain which is similar to Wagamama.

A Fusion – €€
Zeedijk 130, 1012 BC | Book on The Fork and use code 7C90F385
Asian restaurant that has a Michelin Bib Gourmand 6-course shared dining menu.

Thaise Snackbar Bird€€
Zeedijk 77, 1012 AS
Nice but no reservations and usually a queue – small tiny and a quick dirty meal rather than a casual night out.

Brug 34€€
Utrechtsestraat 19, 1017 VH
Lovely for Sunday Brunch in the summer on the terrace. Nice Gay bar in the evenings.

Singel 498, 1017 AX
Despite its very tourist location this is a great local gem. Rijstafel is a great option.

Memories of India €€
Reguliersdwarsstraat 88, 1017 BN

Reguliersdwarsstraat 117, 1017 BL

Korte Reguliersdwarsstraat 8, 1017 BH Amsterdam
Nice cosy Italian.

The Seafood Bar€€
Spui 15, 1012 WX
If you love seafood then the platter is amazing! Otherwise kibbeling from a stall will be cheaper 😉

Bridges – €€€€
Oudezijds Voorburgwal 197, 1012 EX | Book on The Fork and use code 7C90F385
Slightly more upmarket than many of the other offerings on this list but they have a great tasting menu and a lovely cocktail bar for a pre-drink.

Wolf Atelier€€€
Westerdoksplein 20, 1013 AZ
Great set menu and a lovely experience from the menu box through to the desserts.

Paardenstraat 15III, 1017 CX | Book on The Fork and use code 7C90F385
More formerly known as “Graphite by Peter Gast”. A speakeasy Michelin star restaurant with reservations essential.

Kaagman & Kortekaas – €€€
Sint Nicolaasstraat 43, 1012 NJ
A delicious set menu restaurant with no decisions needed except how many courses and if you want cheese or not!

The Cottage – €€
Linnaeusstraat 88, 1092 CP
A taste of the UK in NL. Sunday Roast but book well in advance it’s a small popular place.

Oocker – €€€
Frederiksplein 29h, 1017 XL
Tapas sized bites and some mains. Small food menu. Large wine menu.

De Kas – €€€€

Various locations
LOLS – great for the stumble home after drinks.
