10 most delicious restaurants
There's a big variety of restaurants in the Plantage area. This is a list of our ten favourite places, based on food, locations and atmosphere. From very affordable (€) to justifiably expensive (€€€)
Big, brassy, bold and sort of inside the zoo. Amsterdam’s beau monde meets French elegance in the best possible location.
Small, intimate, sensational food and kind service. Great advice on wines and close to the Tropenmuseum.
A heavenly mixture of Moroccan and French food set in Arabic elegance. Expect adventurous fish dishes and traditional tajines.
Beautiful terrace looking out over the canal. Good organic food and drinks with a lot of vegetarian options.
Nonchalant Indonesian cuisine with a great terrace on the Kadijksplein. Ideal spot from sunset to midnight.
Simple, authentic, affordable en slightly off beat. Don’t expect anything fancy, just great comfort food in cosy surroundings.
Sympathetic brown café frequented by locals at the back of the zoo. Good affordable food in the tradition of the eetcafé.
Superb organic burgers in a wide variety: from lamb to fish to lentils and of course beef. To take away or to enjoy in the rather small booths.
The best pizzas in the area. Take them to one of nearby parks or enjoy them with a glass of prosecco at the great sunny terrace.
