Where to eat...

Boogaard's is surrounded by some of Amsterdam's finest restaurants, pubs, and cafés, most within a five to ten minute walk. One can find a wide variety here including excellent Thai, Indonesian, Belgian, and traditional Dutch cuisine. We list our favourite ones, and include links to their current menus. But don't take just our word for it...they all have high ratings on TripAdvisor and other travel critics' sites.



Sampurna, Indonesian cuisine diner where small or large groups of friends and families meet to enjoy the excellent food, wine, beer and the relaxed ambiance of Indonesia .This is my favorite Indonesian restaurant in Amsterdam , I am half Indonesian myself and I can cook all the dish myself but when I don't feel like cooking for myself or feeling home sick for moms food I often visit Sampurna. Much like our business it all about the lovely atmosphere and friendly service. I have been going to Sampurna for the last 20 years. Right in the heart of Amsterdam , a ten minute walk form Boogaards, and one of the best for the past 25 years! They serve all clients with the same friendly atmosphere that is the trademark of our beautiful city.

Prego Restaurant / French

Great French Food!!

The first thing you notice upon entering is the tight arrangement of Prego. Small wooden tables covered with beautiful large linen napkins and silverware. Everything exudes quality. That is also the starting point for wine connoisseur Jeroen van der mud when he was ten years ago opened his own restaurant. "If I went out to dinner, I always had something to say about quality or service. That is why I own the challenge. "

And indeed, the quality of the food, the wines and the service is great! Before we leave the small but varied menu had a choice made, we were surprised with a sophisticated seafood bisque in an espresso cup. For starters, we took the 'Strong game broth with smoked goose breast flare ette de la mort and salsify "and" Half a dozen lukewarm Breton oysters with spinach, salmon caviar and champagne sabayon "

Surprising wines!

We immediately found ourselves in France. Especially in combination with the Chablis premier cru (Bauroy 1998) and Jeroen expert had selected for us.
The wine list is also a story at Prego: small, but very surprising. "I work with ten different wine vendors, because I need to find really good wine itself, I want him on the map," said Jeroen van der swallow.

That we noticed when we Givry Premier Cru (Marceaux Monopole Clos, 1999) with our main course tasted. What a wine! Just right at the 'tournedos of beef tenderloin with wild mushroom and port sauce eendenlevertagliatelli and a red' and 'Zachtgestoofde veal tongue with fried Opperdoezer round, winter truffle, cabbage and jus de veau.

Too bad we could not taste the 'Cod fillet with saffron risotto and sauce of mussels, potato, leek and mustard and "Cannelloni of field mushrooms, mozzarella and green peppers with courgettes and cream pecorinokrullen. But yes, we had a spot open for the delicious desserts. Fans of what hartiger dessert can choose from a cheese platter with warm walnut bread or a warm goat cheese with honey and sour cream. We kept it on a homemade "Tiramisu" and "grapefruit gratin with almond syrup and mint leaves.

Of course the range of dessert wines surprising. They come from South Africa, Greece, Chile and Portugal.

Thai en Co

Thai & Co is an authentic Thai restaurant. It's a pretty sleek restaurant, but with Thai details. Staff is very subservient and super fast. The owner is a fun loving woman. The food is very good with real pure flavors, little extra additions and always super fresh. And it's very affordable. My favorite is the Thai fishcakes. It's all nice and especially healthy food. Take is a great option if you want to in.
