Amsterdam Restaurants for Large Groups

Looking to dine with a group of 10 or more people? Here are some of our favorite restaurants, bars and cafes that can accommodate larger groups. 

Amsterdam Restaurants for Large Groups

Many Amsterdam restaurants in the city center are small in space and not very suitable for large groups, especially at the last minute. But luckily there are some larger venues that can fit big groups of diners. If you are planning ahead you can surely book a private space or even have the whole restaurant to yourself for an event. It’s definitely worth asking your favorite local spot if they will host your party.

If you are looking to dine with a group of people in Amsterdam, here are our favorite restaurants, bars and cafes that can easily accommodate larger groups. Some of them have special menus and private spaces for groups of 10 or more. Call ahead for reservations, and be prepared to possibly split a large group into smaller tables.

Find the ideal restaurant for a private dinner with clients or a celebratory meal with colleagues, or decide where to host your birthday dinner with friends and family. From casual to classy we have several suggestions.

De Ysbreeker

ysbreeker amsterdamNothing is better on a sunny day than sitting on the wide terrace of De Ysbreeker on the Amstel and soaking up the rays. The late afternoon sun hits this side of the river, providing a perfect place to have an early dinner in the summertime. The interior of the restaurant is lovely too. We recommend the burger. Large and with a side of fries, it’s a hearty meal. The pumpkin soup is a lighter choice, or try the trout filet or Dutch asparagus with poached egg.

De Ysbreeker gets busy outside on a sunny day, so don’t expect a table outside with a large group unless you arrive very early to secure your spot in the sunshine.

Menu: European
Price: approx €15-20 for main course

For a casual Italian meal, check out Vapiano. With two convenient locations near Central Station and Rembrandtplein, this canteen style restaurant serves pasta and pizza in a bustling ambiance. The restaurant can be good for random groups as everyone is responsible for themselves. Take a charge card as you walk in, order what you want from the pizza or pasta counter and pick up your dish when it is ready. Easiest of all, each person pays for their own meal when they leave using the card which saves having to coordinate the bill with a large group.

The food is made fresh to order, we especially like the pizza. They have wine, beer and desserts too. Just bring your card to the bar and order whatever you like! While easy for groups, Vapiano does not have very large tables so grab your best buddies and snag a seat together.

Menu: Italian
Price: approx €10 for main course

Amsterdam Restaurants for Large Groups : Foodhallen Amsterdam

De Foodhallen

Another casual dining option for a large and disorganized group is De Foodhallen. This might be a good choice if you are in town with a group of colleagues who want a bite to eat in a festive location but don’t necessarily want to sit down to a formal meal. Since there are many options to choose from at the Foodhallen everyone can get something they like. Vegetarians and carnivores can dine together with no problem, and you can have Indian flavors while your friend has sushi, another person can eat a burger while their neighbors share charcuterie. Another bonus is that everyone can easily pay for themselves without splitting a check. The space also has a beer bar and great G&Ts.

One caveat is that the Foodhallen can get crowded so it could be difficult to find a seat together especially on weekend evening.

Also check out Kanarie Club next door which has plenty of space for large group dinners.
