The menu is confusing as they have "tasty sides" but you can't order them for dinner. Our server needed to check with the chef. They were very accommodating as I don't eat meat. My partner did have the meat but thought it was dry. I...More

Had a meeting there with other entrepreneurs and the business of the restaurant is using food from the supermarket business they can’t sell anymore but still are very good. I love these kinds of initiatives. Service very friendly

I had the vegetarian menu, it was very good. The way the different tastes complemented each other was excellent, one could describe the dishes as minimalistic but it does not suffer from a lack of interestingness as some other minimalistic kitchens do. You can clearly...More

At our Instock restaurant in Amsterdam, our chefs manage to create the most delicious dishes from food surplus – every time again! A new menu is developed on the basis of the harvest that comes in. The specific details of the different dishes are written down on the chalk boards in the restaurant. Because our cooks make up new four-course dinners on a frequent basis, the choice is limited. That doesn’t mean that our meals are not surprising! How about an overripe banana that’s turned into ice cream? Or Brussels sprouts that our chefs transform into kimchi? If you don’t eat meat or fish, that’s no problem. We always serve a vegetarian menu as well! You can also call for other dietary requirements; our chefs love to help you out. CARD PAYMENT ONLY
