La Rive

Upscale riverside hotel restaurant with French Mediterranean cuisine

La Rive, fine dining restaurant

Restaurant La Rive, part of the 5 star Amstel Hotel has 1 star from the Michelin Restaurant Guide. Its location is beautiful, the service very well and its food is excellent, a French Mediterranean cuisine in an original, modern interpretation. In addition, the kitchen orients on Asian influences that are added in a subtle way.

Chef Rogér Rassin has an 'extraordinary style of cooking' where he conjures up 'sublime dishes' like 'red mullet with risotto al nero' and 'croquettes of salted cod with Belon oysters'.

The atmosphere is relaxed. The wine cellar houses more than 3000 bottles. Dress code is expected. There are also six elegant large banqueting rooms, the bar for an informal drink or meal and the terrace with the view on the river for drinks and light meals.

La Rive is situated on the banks of the Amstel River in the famous Amstel Hotel.
