Amsterdam, Eat

Tol Huis Tuin Restaurant, Amsterdam

June 15, 2015

‘Amsterdam North’ is becoming increasingly popular, with places like Hanneke’s Boom setting the standard for laid back, fun and especially locally-loved places.  Tol Huis Tuin (or THT) as it’s known as, opened last year with positive reviews, though its food needed a bit more work on.

This old Shell canteen, which served 100s of employees their lunch, now gives locals and tourists the chance to eat in an unusual building (if I say 60s block it will put you off – but really it shouldn’t), with a fantastic view of Amsterdam’s harbour and the river ‘Ij’.   Expect industrial style decor and a small sharing plates menu (though bigger and more substantial than tapas), with international cuisine.   Food has definitely improved since it opened, so now it ticks all the boxes.

Grab the ferry from Centraal Station and you’re here within minutes, but it still feels like something different and off the beaten track.  Highly recommended.
