Best restaurants for natural wine in Amsterdam

Crazy for natural wine, or is it all just sour grapes to you? For the enthusiasts, we’ve researched the most exciting restaurants featuring a natural wine list that’ll pair exquisitely with your meal. Here’s our roundup of the best restaurants for natural wine in Amsterdam.

FC Hyena

FC Hyena in Noord doubles as an arthouse cinema, wine bar and restaurant all in one. Grab some delicious bites before your movie and simply take whatever you haven’t finished into the theatre with you. The changing menu revolves around delicious small plates often prepared in the wood-fired oven, all complemented by a carefully curated natural wine list. Many are available by glass, and the natural ciders are heartily recommended.

Choux puts the spotlight on dishes in which vegetables play the leading role. So much so that in 2022, it was awarded the title of 'best vegetable-forward restaurant of the year'. Head chef Merijn van Berlo joined forces with sommelier Figo van Onna of Zuiver Wijnen to craft the wine list, resulting in a masterful pairing of exquisite food and second-to-none natural wines.

Choux | De Ruyterkade 128, Centrum

Coba Taqueria

Get ready for a fiesta of tostadas, ceviche, tequila and natural wines at Coba. In their cavernous industrial space in Noord, the owners have transformed the former warehouse into a little slice of Mexico - think cactuses, lots of colours and the staff in traditional Mexican dress. Don't be alarmed if you’re missing your cutlery. This is a casual fine-dining spot where most dishes are easier to eat with your hands.

Café Binnenvisser

Falling somewhere between a wine bar, restaurant or city pub, Café Binnenvisser is always the place to go for conviviality, excellent food and delicious natural wines. Tuck into the changing weekly menu, with a strong focus on seasonal vegetables, or choose individual dishes from the menu - all very attractively priced. The extensive wine and cider list, consisting exclusively of natural bottles, is worth the detour alone.

Fast becoming a go-to spot for a canal-side drink and some delicious food, Kikkie van de Prinsensluis occupies one of the most scenic corners in the Jordaan. Open for lunch and dinner, the menu showcases an exciting selection of natural wines - many of which are available by the glass - along with a variety of small plates and sharing dishes such as cheese and charcuterie boards or oyster platters. Their sun-soaked terrace spills over onto the canal bridge with gorgeous views.

Kikkie | Prinsenstraat 30, Centrum


The stylish location of BAK is worth a visit in itself, located in the rafters of a lofty warehouse space overlooking the water in the former timber port of Amsterdam Houthavens. The daily changing menu has an environmental focus, using fish from sustainable fisheries, meat from local producers and the highest quality vegetables from non-subsidized farmers. Likewise, the drinks list champions wines that are as pure and natural as possible, all originating from local producers that intervene as little as possible.

BAK | Van Diemenstraat 408, Houthavens

This airy bistro, from the same owners as Hotel de Goudfazant, serves up finger-licking dishes that take in influences from all around the world. Don’t miss the miso aubergine with sesame and pork belly or the lobster and sambal. And if that's not enough to whet your appetite, their wide choice of fine natural wines has got you covered.

Be surprised by the chef's 4-course menu, or choose your own selection of small plates.

Pair all this with a glass of natural bubbles or an orange wine from their wide range, and all you have to do is enjoy.
