Volks Tip: Eetcafe van Beeren


Each week we ask our Volk to share their favourite Amsterdam spot. From brown bars to pumping parties, who knows what our eclectic mix of characters will recommend… This week: Matthias (34) our Shiflteader in Canvas shares one of his favourite hidden gems for some real hearty food: Eetcafe van Beeren in Amsterdam Centre. ‘Lovely place, with lovely people’.

298624_128375490596832_2039261824_nEetcafe van Beeren is a stones throw away from the Nieuwmarkt. It’s a small, casual restaurant serving good, hearty Dutch food, with a Mediterranean twist. You can dine in the cosy candlelit bar or the romantic courtyard (when the sun finally shines). Be there early, this place gets busy.

Who’s Matthias?
Matthias works in Canvas as our shiftleader, with the nickname Rooie Jos – a ginger figure in a Dutch documentary Foute Vrienden. He’s our big friendly giant, with a smile to his ears and the personality of a carebear.

Although Matthias’ surname ‘de Weerd’ would suggest that he has some strange tendencies, he seems quite the contrary… ‘I’m just not that wierd’. And we have to say, we agree, he’s perfectly normal and we just love him.
