Amsterdam is the land of cheese, pancakes and freshly cut French fries and you can wander in and out of little café’s serving them all day long. When you’re in the mood for a proper sit-down meal, try one of these favorites:

Amstelveenseweg 158-160, Amsterdam

Indonesian food is popular in the Netherlands and Blauw is one of the best. Try the traditional rijsttafel (rice table), a huge selection of sharable dishes, that is a really fun option for sampling Indonesian cuisine.

De Kas

For a unique, very cool experience, dine at De Kas in their chic greenhouse setting. They take farm-to-table to a whole new level by growing their herbs and veggies on site and offering a daily, changing menu.
