Regarded as one of the best French restaurants in Amsterdam, Bordewijk is patronized by locals in the know for its affordable prices and the casual vibe of the minimalist restaurant, which is sparsely but stylishly kitted out with wooden floors and spindly tables. In true French style there’s not much here for vegetarian diners—the menu inhabits the world of suckling pig and tripe, all deliciously cooked by consummate chef Wil Demandt. His creative French cuisine is paired with a superb wine list and service is relaxed, so expect dinner here to last all night. There’s a terrace for al fresco dining alongside the canal in summer. Reservations recommended.
