Bar Moustache

For all the fans of small, busy, popular places, Bar Moustache is where to go. This place recently opened in one of Amsterdam’s nicest streets: Utrechtsestraat. This is where the fashionable Amsterdam crowd comes to get their Italian meals and wines. Former travel- and lifestyle editor Stella Willing helped decorating the place. She has really put her creative mark on the interior of the restaurant. She did a wonderful job on such a tiny place. The brick walls and various chairs really carry out the cosy atmosphere of old Amsterdam manor houses. But don’t just go here to behold the amazing interior: the food’s great too. The lamb loin is highly recommended! Have a nice glass of red wine with this and you will come crawling back to the Utrechtsestraat very soon!

Bistrot Neuf

‘Life is too short to drink bad wines’ is Bistrot Neuf‘s slogan. We like it already! It’s not a cafe. It’s not a restaurant. It’s something exactly in between: a bistro. The idea is to have honest, recognizable food in an uncomplicated environment with wine as the bases. The attractive Haarlemmerstraat area, with all its restaurants and nightlife, became even more attractive the minute Neuf opened its doors. Great food, intimate atmosphere and a wine menu that’s adjusted to the season. Nice!

Comfort Caffe

The Comfort Caffe started out as a ‘multipurpose’ hang out in the charming Eastside of Amsterdam. Grabbing a croissant in the morning, a fabulous panini in the afternoon or a nice pasta in the evening. They got it all. But because of the diner being SO tasteful and great, the closing time of 9pm had to be extended. By that time the restaurant is still full of connoisseurs enjoying the last bites of their pasta or pricking their torta del giorno. For a very nice price you can enjoy a very good Italian meal, including lovely Italian wine and very enticing espresso to top it off. On sunny summer days they have a lovely terrace outside at the back of the restaurant. It has a lovely ‘oase in the city’-feeling. The Comfort Caffe really lives up to the promise made by it’s alluring name.
