Description: In our restaurant and tasting room Spingaren at the Herengracht in the city centre of Amsterdam, you can enjoy our unique home-made meat, fish and vegetarian charcuterie. The industrial-Scandinavian styling of the restaurant is implemented by interior architect Maarten Jamin, in which our magnificent bar is the hart of the restaurant. Spingaren has a large assortment of beers, we serve different wines per glas and our GT’s and cocktails are a real recommendation. De menu exists of different home-made charcuterie from where you select your own board which you can share with your table companions. Think of pastrami, dry sausage, patés, kimchi and pickles. Delicious with drinks or as a starter! Besides the Spingaren charcuterie, you can find delicious meat dishes, fresh fis and innovative vegetable dishes on our menu. During the season we also serve game and mussels. You are welcome for a drink, to taste or for an extensive dinner, everything is possible at Spingaren!

We sat outside. The service was slow and disorganised. But that's not what I found astounding. When I went to the toilets I found that the servers have to walk through the toilet area to get the food to the customers outside. Not my idea of hygienic at all.

Nice location, cool decoration, but to be honest the experience was not good at all. Order some starters. We were supposed to get also bread, which came when we finished the starters. The reason: kitchen is stressed.. never heard as such absurd excuse in my life. To be noticed: restaurant was not so full ...we order a main dish which included meat, not even asked how we wanted it (rare, medium, well done) ..service was slow and and not so professional..
Definitively a no go...

The entree style of tapas is amazing and the food was really world class plus really well priced for the experience. I was overwhelmed by the number of vegetarian options and had such a fantastic time

Located on one of the famous canals of Amsterdam, on walking distance from the Central Station, Spingaren is worth a recommendation. Not only the service is on an appreciable level the food is solely worth a visit. Although we were with just the two of us, larger groups are also very welcome. On the 25th of december, after a splendid five course meal, with a lot of variation, one of the cooks came round and took interest in our experience. Luckily for him we just gave him a big smile.

Spingaren is a restaurant, formerly know as The Lieve. It is a large restaurant, plenty of tables in a nice setting.
The staff are very friendly, if you book for a place at an early hour, you pay up to 20 % less.
The menu is varied: they serve especially meat but also vegetable dishes: a nice place for vegetarians and meat lovers!
The food was delicious, the place was full but the accoustics were all right.
Although we had started at 6 pm and paid 20 % less, nobody was urging us to leave.
Lovely food presented in a creative way, reasonable price, nice atmosphere ... We had a wonderful evening.
