Top picks in Amsterdam – Organic restaurants

by Natalie L 13 Feb 2020

Amsterdam, a city famous for its beautiful and historic buildings and culture, is unsurprisingly considered a travel hotspot these days. Boasting delicious (but rather sinful) Dutch foods, watching your waistline during your holiday there can be challenging. Nevertheless, if you are looking for healthier options, do consider some of these organic restaurants located about town!


De Kas

Kamerlingh Onneslaan 3, 1097 DE Amsterdam, Netherlands

De Kas’ menu tends to be on the pricier side, but the dining experience here explains it. The dining area is right beside its very own indoor garden, allowing diners to enjoy the view as they dine. This also has the added benefit of ensuring that only the freshest organic ingredients end up on your plates! The menu here is seasonal and dishes can be altered to suit various dietary considerations. 


De Peper

Overtoom 301, 1054 HW Amsterdam, Netherlands

Fancy surprises and changes? If so, you might love De Peper—a vegan restaurant that changes its set menu everyday. It boasts a modern yet cozy interior, allowing for a very comfortable dining atmosphere. As De Peper is only open for dinner, do make a reservation beforehand to ensure that you don’t leave empty-stomached!


Noorderlicht Café

NDSM-Plein 102, 1033 WB Amsterdam, Netherlands

Immersing oneself in good music while munching on good food is makes for an unforgettable dining occasion. Noorderlight hosts free musical and cultural events from time to time, allowing diners to have an exciting, almost theatre-like experience while dining in its stunning two-story greenhouse. Bask in the verdant scenery while trying some of the freshest dishes in town!


Natuurlijk Smullen

Jan van Galenstraat 78, 1056 CD Amsterdam, Netherlands

Fancy some chips and burgers? Organic fast food is rather rare and many people remain skeptical of its authenticity today. However, Natuurlijk Smullen promises not to disappoint! Indulge in some traditional Dutch fast food here, with organic meat-based snacks, topped with tasty sauces.


Amsterdam is a lovely city to explore! While it is known for its sinful Dutch foods (think stroopwafel and kroket), it is definitely not short of healthy, organic food options either.  Keep your portions to reasonable sizes and you should do just fine!
