You’ll find one of the most romantic restaurants in Europe in the beautiful dunes of Haarlem and Zandvoor. Not only does De Bokkedoorns boast a lakeside setting, it also has two Michelin stars to its name.

This is exceptional dining without any fuss – just simple and natural ingredients and design that shines through. It’s well worth a trip just outside of the city.

3. De Belhamel

Located just at the edge of the Jordaan district, you can enjoy a meal of French and Italian-inspired flavours on the beautiful waterfront terrace of De Belhamel. For colder months, the restaurant’s dim lighting and art nouveau décor adds a cosy sense of intimacy to any date night.

6. Vuurtoreneiland

This beautiful café and restaurant sits on a small island northeast of Amsterdam’s city centre. As the island has no electricity or running water, food is cooked over old-school wood and fire. It’s a struggle to get a table for the six-course menu, but well worth it.

It’s without doubt an evening to remember.
