Food Scene

By now 'Wilde Zwijnen' has become an Amsterdam institution. Great food, great wine, and great beer. It's a little on the expensive side, but definitely worth it. Call ahead to make a reservation, because it is usually packed. It is actually 2 restaurantes. Our favorite is the smaller of the 2 called Bar Wilde Zijnen.

De Biertuin is famous in Amsterdam for it's great outside space, and perhaps more importantly, for its fantastic roasted chicken and prize winning hamburgers! The heated terrace is packed whole year through but the waiting times are rather short and can be killed with a good glass of beer.

The name says it all. They don’t have the star but we think they deserve one. Mediterranean / Italian Tapas and Pizza’s. Great food and good wines as well. Located on the Steve Biko plein. You can share your courses and the kids can either join in with that or eat / share a pizze. A bit further away (a 15 min walk) but on your bike you are there in 5 mins).

You can get there by foot, but if you are tired it might just be a bit too far. But you can either take the car, your bike or hire a helicopter. Polder is located in the so-called university Science Park and is housed in an old farm. Super kid friendly and a lovely large sunny terrace.

A grill restaurant which is one of a kind. They serve spare ribs and a lamb shoulder to die for. You can not reserve a table but you can wait very nicely across the street in the bar that belongs to the restaurant. When there is a wise ass with glasses helping you just say hi to him (he is called Kim) and give him regards from Nancy and Erik.
