A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

‘ s Ochtends kun je ontbijten met wat lekkers van het ontbijtbuffet of met huisgemaakte pannenkoeken. Een croque Madame of Club sandwich voor de lunch en wegtikken op je laptop onder het genot van een kop koffie. Vervolgens kun je lekker blijven hangen voor een heerlijke cocktail aan de waanzinnig mooie bar om daarna aan tafel te gaan voor een volledig biologisch diner bereid door chef Dirk Moonen en zijn team. Op de kaart staan o.a. curry’s, vegetarische risotto’s, visgerechten, maar ook prachtige vleesgerechten. Het prachtig ingerichte Bar Kantoor heeft de hele dag door voor ieder wat wils.

Tip van bySam: het terras van Bar Kantoor kijkt uit over het Westerpark en het Westergasterrein. Strijk op een mooie zonnige dag hier lekker neer met wat lekkers te eten en te drinken.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our B-day dinner at this 100% organic and super tasty restaurant. Moreover, the staff was so friendly. We'd love to come again.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the service and atmosphere of this place. The food was also good. We ended up spending much more time here than we originally planned, just because we enjoyed the place so much. We'll definitely come back.

    Very pleased with my visit at Bar Kantoor. Smoked salmon was slightly too salty for my taste but the rest was great. I will definitely be back!

    Love the ambiance. Ordered the veggie risotto which I couldn't eat because it tasted like water and basically nothing. The restaurant handled it well the chef agreed with me and said that the plate should not have hit our table. The rest of the meal was really good. Our night ended with a loose nail on the chair that I was sitting on cutting into my leg (I have pictures of the blood on my trousers). Which we handled with humour!!!

    What a great place! Great atmosphere, funky and well thought out, lovely food, surprisingly large portions and well-presented. Exceptional service, and even a decent wine list. We'll be back for sure!

    Paar toppers in bediening maar per saldo ging er heel veel mis. Kaart teleurstellend. Beetje pretentieus. Kom niet weer.

    Sfeer en eten is prima, bediening nog wat jong/ onprofessioneel.

    Cool, relaxed place... quite expensive but as expected. Must mention the beautifully arranged desserts and the kind waiter!

    Great new place in Westerpark neighbourhood. My friends and I had a dinner during the opening night. . We had 3 courses each from À la carte menu. Everyone loved their food but personally for me the best were scallops with fermented cabbage and gnocchi with lamb. I think this is going to be one of the best new places in Amsterdam. Great food, drinks (saw nice cocktails others were drinking), atmosphere...and what a terrace....WOW.
