Don´t feel like cooking tonight? Or just looking for a nice spot to dine with your love or best friend? Today we like to share our old time favorites with you in De Pijp. Because sometimes (really only sometimes) we feel like eating something else than tapas 😉.
First things first; for a little sun and a good time just visit Restaurant Barca in the heart of De Pijp, located at the Marie Heinekenplein. We all know how Dutchies love to visit Barcelona to enjoy some sun, sea, tapas and sangria. No time for a trip to Barcelona? Just visit us for a real Spanish experience.
Yes the sun shines almost every day in Barcelona but in Amsterdam the sun shows her face quite often too. During these precious moments you can soak up some UV on our terrace. In the morning for a proper cup of coffee and in the afternoon for a delicious Spanish style lunch. Of course in the night you can join us for a well deserved glass of vino tinto, sangria or cava accompanied with your favorite tapas. Next to the classic tapas dishes we also serve a complete Spanish dinner. Just come by and try!

Japanese dining on a high qualitative level? That´s what IZAKAYA offers its clientele. IZAKAYA is the place to be for exclusive Japanese dishes. The setting is Urban Chique and the restaurants makes a great location for a date night out too. Next to delicious dishes you can also enjoy delicious cocktails (they are served to you with a little show of the bartender).

Get the Melbourne vibes straight from Little Collins Street
Looking for a cosy dinner opt then for shared dining at Little Collins in Amsterdam South. The best dinners are shared dinners don´t you think. The chefs of Little Collins serve you old time favorites but with a very charming and surprising twist. The menu is pretty broad so you will always find something you like. Good to mention is that Little Collins is also a great place for a proper hangover brunch.

French gastronomy in Amsterdam
Get the Paris vibes in Amsterdam by visiting Auberge Jean & Marie at De Albert Cuypstraat. Jean and Marie will welcome you with open arms. All year long you can enjoy a decent glass of wine at the (covered) terrace; just like the French like it. The ambiance is intimate and cosy and the menu offers true French Classic dishes but also recently discovered ´pearls´ from France. What sets this restaurant apart is that you really taste that each and every dish is made with love. Of course the wine list is very premium too; like you can expect from a decent French restaurant. Santé.

Fantastic family restaurant owned by Alain Caron and his sons David and Tom.
On mangé. Yes apart from Spanish sun and tapas we do have a weak spot for decent French food. Café Caron is a must visit. The base of this restaurant´s success is the extremely rich kitchen. At Café Caron everyone feels at home because love for food and having a good time is what connects people. The kitchen is known for its seasonal products that are prepared in to creative dishes with love. You can opt for a simple one plate dish with a good glass of wine or you can spoil yourself and your company with an extensive menu in which every dish will be paired with the right wine. Feeling hungry already?

The best Vegetarian and Vegan dishes you will find at Manamana
Last but not least in the list is Manamana. Whether you are a veggie or not this place offers something for everyone. Indulge in homemade baba ganoush, homemade falafel, hummus, roasted aubergines and other delicious plant based dishes. Can´t live without your meat? Manamana serves also grilled lamb chops or a traditional Kebab. The menu is very affordable and the quality and ambiance is just perfect.

Old school, Italian traditions
After Spain and France it´s time for some Italian influence in the list. Spaghetteria became a hotspot within no time. It´s not the place to go for a 5 course dinner but rather a great place to hop in after work for a good plate of homemade Italian pasta combined with a decent glass of wine. Nobody leaves the place without sipping on the homemade limoncello. The ingredients are exquisite. Every pasta lover will fall in love.
