De Pijp is the go-to neighborhood in Amsterdam for those looking to try something new and delicious. From exotic ingredients to traditional dishes, De Pijp is brimming with diverse international cuisine. You’ll find numerous nationalities represented, including French, Italian, Turkish and Tunisian. This neighborhood is truly a multicultural melting pot.
For those in the mood for French, look no further than Le Restaurant or Ciel Bleu. Le Restaurant, for instance, is a one Michelin star restaurant that serves excellent dishes in a romantic setting. Two Michelin star Ciel Bleu in the Okura Hotel, on the other hand, provides a stunning view over Amsterdam.
Scandinavian Embassy focuses on Nordic cuisine, while Bazar serves North African, Iranian and Turkish food. Veggie lovers will not want to miss De Waaghals, an all-vegetarian restaurant, while meat-lovers must absolutely try The Butcher, a burger restaurant. Bakken met Passie is the best place for lunch, as they make their bread from scratch. If you’re looking for a mid-afternoon snack or something sweet, check out the Taart van m'n Tante. It’s a great place to enjoy a slice of pie and cup of coffee. Stop by the College Hotel for a chic cocktail concoction later, perhaps after dinner.
