It’s not a secret that every special treat is available for a special price, and if you’re a foodie, you’re probably aware of that more than anyone else. However, DiningCity, a restaurant review website, came up with a fantastic initiative to make it much more wallet-friendly for you to make the most of your culinary experience of Amsterdam – prepare your palate for the National Restaurant Week!
What’s Cookin’ Doc?
The best of the best, of course! And now for an incredibly affordable price, too. After all, how often do you get a 3-course dinner in many of the top restaurants of your city for € 27,50, or a lunch for € 22,50? Be aware that Michelin-listed places get the privilege to charge € 10 more per each star, though the price you get to pay makes it still far more accessible – and tempting – than if you had to settle the bill on ‘standard’ conditions. Another thing to keep in mind is that this special price does not include drinks, and that this week makes all the most desirable places fill up in a flash, so before you got to Amsterdam during this time, make sure to book your table; the best way to do that is through DiningCity’s page: www.restaurantweek.nl/lang/en/cities.
Indeed, National Restaurant Week aims to grant you a much more affordable access to about 1,000 of the best restaurants in the Netherlands, around 150 of which are to be found nowhere else than precisely in Amsterdam. And what’s on offer? A broad selection of most various dishes, ranging from some of the best Netherland’s seasonal seafood (recommended in particular at the one-Michelin-star restaurant named Bridges, near Dam Square), through fusion-themed stuff for all seasons (check out the Jordaan’s favourite Seasons Restaurant), and ending with Japanese- (Hosokawa), Peruvian- (Casa Peru), or Indian- (Ganesha) styled meals, ready to spoil your senses, making your mouth water in delight. Other noteworthy spots include the upmarket Michelin-starred Amstel Brasserie serving wonderful French Mediterranean cuisine, the splendid Le Garge (also with a Michelin star), or the remarkable French-themed La Camelia at Okura Hotel.
When’s Cookin Doc?
The National Restaurant Week is organized two times a year, usually in the spring (March) and in the autumn (September). For the exact dates of each current edition, visit the aforementioned DiningCity’s website and prepare yourself for a culinary experience of your lifetime! Also, do not forget that you can take full advantage of this event by selecting a comfortable location of your stay, and with our broad offer of excellently-located Amsterdam holiday apartments, you will be able to make the most of your trip.
