The 7 best terraces in Amsterdam of 2019

The yearly 'Terrace Top 100' of the catering magazine Misset Horeca is out and no less than 7 of the 100 best terraces in the Netherlands are located in Amsterdam! This year is already the 12th edition of the terrace top 100 and compared to last year we are with two terraces extra in the top 100 this year.

The terraces have been assessed twice by a professional jury and in addition 'mystery quests' have visited and assessed the terraces at unexpected moments. Curious which terraces have made it to the top 100?

1) Restaurant Barça in Amsterdam South

The Sushi Samba restaurant, located at Max Euweplein in the heart of Amsterdam, is terrace 16th on the list. The beautiful terrace on the water is an iconic feature of this restaurant, a true eye catcher for everyone who walks by. At Sushi Samba you will not only find food from the Japanese cuisine, but also from the Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine. Certainly worth to go there!

We talked about Strandzuid in an earlier blog of us and it is at place 31 of the top 100. Not only a great place to 'keep your head cool' during hot days, but you can also enjoy delicious food and drinks! Easily accessible, because Strandzuid is located next to the RAI station and is therefore easily accessible by public transport.

5) De Veranda in Amsterdam South

It seems if the best terraces of Amsterdam can be found in the South district, because the terrace of De Veranda in the South is also in the top 100 (place 55). Atmospheric, easy-going and super tasty cocktails, what more do you want? Hurry to go to the 'Amstelveense weg' and take a seat on the terrace. Don't forget your sunglasses!

The 6th terrace in Amsterdam (number 76 on the list) is actually not in the south, but in the center of Amsterdam. Right on the square on the Spui you will find this very cozy restaurant. Cold drink, snack food and hopefully some sunshine too. What more could you wish for?
