Serre Okura, Pikoteo, BAUT: this weekend you’ll taste all the best they’ve got to offer. You can also find these – amongst the rest of the best restaurants in the capital – in the Insider selection. This is a selection presented and compiled by IENS, the biggest Dutch restaurant-booking platform, that gives you an overview of the crème de la crème of the Amsterdam culinary scene.


Not only in Amsterdam, but also in The Hague and Rotterdam Insider was introduced this year. Accessible through the IENS app and website you can find this culinary list, that is compiled by local experts and based on at least one of two criteria:
• The restaurant has one or multiple Michelin stars or a recommendation in one of the leading culinary guides (Bib Gourmand, Gault Millau);
• The restaurant has an average score of 9 of higher, based on at least 25 reviews with a menu price of €35,00 or higher for a three course menu.
