Best Dutch Restaurants in Amsterdam
A trip to the Netherlands isn't complete without eating in a typical Dutch restaurant. In Amsterdam, there are enough restaurants that specialise in this. Trust me when I say, it's always worth it. Here is a look at some of Amsterdam's best Dutch restaurants.
Located on the Javaplein district of Amsterdam, Wilde Zwijnen is where you go for a glass of wine, steak, veggies and of course, other authentic Dutch dishes. Here, they have a reputation for preparing Dutch dishes with ingredients that are locally sourced and fresh as well.
Visit the Wilde Zwijnen at Javaplein 23, 1095 CJ Amsterdam.

Want to try some tasty Dutch dishes in a family friendly setting? Moeders is exactly where you have to go for that. It doesn't matter if you go alone or with a group of 8, there is always a table for everyone. Make sure you call to make a reservation as this is one of the busiest restaurants in Amsterdam.
You can visit Moeders Restaurant at Rozengracht 251, 1016 SX Amsterdam.

I honestly don't think there's a Dutch restaurant out there, that's more popular than Loetje. They have one of the best steaks in town and they're always filled up with both locals and tourists wanting to get a taste of it. A restaurant for real carnivores and lovers of traditional Dutch cuisine. Apart from steak, they also serve fish and veggies with different kinds of wine. Even though there are four locations in Amsterdam alone, I'd suggest you visit the one at the Central Station, because it's right next to the canals and is a lovely place to eat and relax during the summer months. Don't forget to reserve a table as it's always very busy.
You can visit Café-Restaurant Loetje at Stationsplein 10, 1012 AB Amsterdam.

De Silveren Spiegel
You don't just visit De Silveren Spiegel for the food, you also visit to enjoy the scenery and all of the history that surrounds the restaurant. This atmospheric restaurant is known for its fine Dutch dishes and rich culinary history. At De Silveren Spiegel, enjoy a typical Dutch meal under the wooden beams of the historic building and between the Delft blue tiles. In the summer months, it's really nice to eat and relax on the terrace.

Named after Haesje Claes, the lady known to have opened the first orphanage in Amsterdam. Located in the historic centre of Amsterdam, near the Spui area, Haesje Claes is housed in six historic buildings where many original architectural features have been preserved. True to the Dutch identity that they have, only typical Dutch dishes are on the menu. This is one restaurant with a rich history and an array of delicious dishes.
