The former film museum of Amsterdam in the Vondelpark now forms the basis for this restaurant, opened in 2014.

Its lavish menu is accompanied by an impeccable view over Amsterdam’s skyline. Address: Oosterdokskade 5.
Bak: a multi-course seasonal menu
Restaurant Bak holds claim to one of the best views of Amsterdam.

De Kas: extremely fresh
Near the Amstel train station, concealed in the Frankendaelpark, is one of the finest restaurants in Amsterdam. De Kas is in fact a restaurant situated in the greenhouse of the former Amsterdam City Greenery (Amsterdamse Stadskwekerij) from 1926. It is ideally suited for a formal business lunch or dinner. The menu is alternating and seasonal with 90% of ingredients grown on the grounds. Address: Kamerlingh Onneslaan 3.
Restaurant As: organic in the Zuidas
Restaurant As is a hidden gem located on the edge of the Beatrixpark. Seasonal and organic produce grown locally also forms the basis of a rotating menu. The former Sint Nicolaas Kapel (chapel of St. Nicholas) combines a cosy atmosphere with a high-grade culinary experience. Prior to dining, sip on a drink or two on the covered terrace overlooking the tranquil park. Address: Prinses Irenestraat 19.
