Vessel Kitchen & Bar

Boasting the largest IJ-facing terrace in town, with sun loungers, table-side fireplaces and bar tables, and an awesome maritime-influenced interior, Hotel BOAT &CO Amsterdam scores some serious style points. In the hull of the hotel, chef Ricardo van Ede’s love for “food that puts a smile on your face” translates into crowd-pleasing dishes. Free parking for the first two hours means you won’t have to break a sweat cycling all the way out to Amsterdam’s flashiest new neighbourhood. Reservations required.
