The sun is shining again, so you can not miss a visit to the terrace.
We have put together our top 7 for you with the most beautiful terraces.
Put your sunglasses on and go!


An endless terrace on the south, right on the rippling IJ and with a great view of the Center across the street: is there a nicer place to eat a delicious and sustainable fish? Stork offers a huge selection of responsible, fresh fish, shellfish dishes and has been a favorite with local fish lovers for years.


Looking for a relaxed beachy atmosphere? You will find it on the NDSM, at the water of the IJ in Amsterdam-Noord, with a lovely beach in front of the door. You’re at Pllek! You will be welcomed with seasonal dishes and sustainable ingredients. Many vegetables especially, because Pllek loves animals, people and the environment.


Don’t let the industrial look of this real hangar fool you. In good weather you imagine yourself here in a tropical holiday resort. The huge terrace, but also the city beach makes sure of that. So enjoy lounging on the banks of the IJ in Amsterdam North. And enjoy special dishes, because you can find almost everything at Hangar.

The Roundabout

On the edge of Amsterdam’s oldest city forest, the Vliegenbos campsite is tucked away with the delicious Roundabout. A restaurant with a terrace where you immediately get a holiday feeling. Travelers come from all over the world. Literally from the other side of the world, as well as from the other side of the street. A place where tourists and locals gather at the daily bonfire.


A terrace with a great view over the IJ and the city on the IJpromenade. THT also serves local and seasonal products. Pleasant to share are the lunch plates with a variation of the most delicious small dishes and the THT for 2 dinner: good for a culinary journey.


Want to have a drink or eat with an beautiful view? Then go to the bar / restaurant in the Eye film museum. This spectacular building was designed in 2012 by the Austrian architectural firm Delugan Meissi and, with its special architectural design, it is the absolute eye-catcher on the IJ and an iconic view in Amsterdam North.

Cafe ’t sluisje

Are you looking for a special experience to chill out? Then of course you go to Café ‘t Sluisje on the Nieuwendammerdijk in Amsterdam-Noord. ‘Dutch finest’ when it comes to an old, brown café. Feel the rich history of this 100-year-old café in an authentic building dating back to 1565. You will not only find old objects and photos with the atmosphere of the past, but outside on the large terrace you have a beautiful view of Nieuwendam. A popular stopover for cyclists.
