Award-winning de Kas was one of the first organic restaurants in Amsterdam when it opened in 2001, and is run on totally green principles and supplied with fruit, vegetables, and herbs grown in the nursery next door. The spacious, light-filled dining rooms inhabit former greenhouses and in summer, the huge patio is filled with fragrances from the herbs. Three- to six-course prix-fixe menus are served each day, and are dependent on what’s available in the market or garden; expect skillfully presented dishes such as locally raised beef with Hollandaise or roasted Jerusalem artichoke with dashi beurre blanc. Imaginative vegetarian alternatives are always available. Each course is carefully paired with quality wines. Reservations are required.
