Kamerlingh Onneslaan 3, Grachtengordel
Everything about this farm-to-table restaurant is an experience: the slightly out-of-the-way location in a park in East Amsterdam, the almost entirely locally-sourced ingredients (all produce is grown on their own farm just outside the city) and most importantly, the fact that the dining room is actually a gigantic, glass-ceiling greenhouse. The multi-course lunch and dinner menus change according to the what’s in season and are set by the chef, allowing guests to sit back and not worry about ordering the right thing. What’s more, the staff will happily accommodate any and all dietary restrictions.
Buffet van Odette
Prinsengracht 598, Grachtengordel
This sweet soup-and-salad spot is set up right in the center of Amsterdam’s most notable sights and offers the kind of light-yet-nourishing breakfasts and lunches—including a robust salad bar where you can get heaps of fresh veggies for a good price—that fill you up without weighing you down. If staying late at the museums, the three-course dinner changes daily according to what’s in season. Weather-permitting, grab a seat at one of the outdoor tables.
