It seems that there are two major trends when it comes to eating out in Amsterdam. A new style of luxury dining in a trendy restaurant and the more homestyle restaurants. At the homestyle restaurants the food is pure and delicious and almost like it's home cooked. Often the food at the homestyle restaurants is comfort food or served to share with the whole table. Last year a lot of new restaurants in the homestyle categorie opened the doors. And they're always super busy. Often because the menu is well priced and the vibe is relaxed. Those restaurants are perfect to go to on a week night if you're up for an easy dinner. Another great advantage of homestyle restaurants is that you can always stay there for a few drinks after dinner.
The best new restaurants that serve homestyle food are Julius Bar & Grill, Bar Brouw, Huf and Boca's Park. They're all super trendy and affordable. The food is comfort food with delicious dishes like pulled pork, braised veal or meat platters to share with the whole table.
For a homestyle breakfast or lunch with a sandwich and cheese or meat it's fun to go to the Bakkerswinkel. You will feel at home immediately. Also fun: they serve breakfast for two!
In this 10 Best list you find 10 of the best Homestyle restaurants in Amsterdam where the vibe is laid back and the food is great.
