Restaurant Checklist

Good to know when you visit an Amsterdam restaurant

  • It is advisable to reserve; there are a few restaurants where you won't need to, but it is better to be safe than sorry.
  • Enquire beforehand if you want to pay with a credit card.
  • The Dutch eat early. Some restaurants close earlier than you might expect.
  • Smoking in restaurants is not allowed anymore, although some restaurants still have some smoking rooms
  • Small neighborhood restaurants or bistro's are called eetcafés; you can have here a full dinner for a rather small price.
