Restaurants and bars in Amstelveen

Amstelveen’s culinary scene will wow you with its offering of fine dining and stunning terraces.

Ron Gastrobar Indonesia

Ron Gastrobar Indonesia's restaurant is the perfect place for a summer meal with a terrace that overlooks the picturesque bank of the Amstel River. The menu celebrates the Indonesian ‘rijsttafel’ or rice table: a bountiful parade of small signature Indonesian dishes accompanied by rice. There is also an à la carte menu with five varieties of satay sauce.

ANNA Proeflokaal

Monasteries and churches have long been associated with beer brewing, and the tradition is revived in Amstelveen's former St. Anne's Church, where the ANNA Proeflokaal (Tasting Room) of the Naeckte craft brewery resides. With 25 beers on tap and various bottled specials, you can soak up the atmosphere as you repeatedly postpone that last beer. The bar also gives space for art with regular pop-up exhibitions, ranging from photography and video to performance or painting.

Amstelveen and nearby Buitenveldert have a sizeable East and South Asian community, reflected in the many specialised supermarkets and restaurants. For Korean, Chinese, Indian and Japanese cuisine, the choice is enormous. One of our favourite spots is Tanuki, a traditional izakaya serving bento boxes, ramen, rice bowls, skewers, sushi, sashimi and a wealth of other umami snacks.

De Amsteltuin Vineyard

The Amsteltuin Vineyard is home to 3,500 vines of five grape varieties which grow on more than one hectare: Solaris, Johanniter, Souvignier Gris, Pinotin and Cabernet Cortis. Guests are welcome to enjoy a high wine basket in the heart of the winery or take a tour with tasting on the terrace days.
