At Brasserie Meuwese you are in the heart of Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a historic, sustainable and international city with a wealth of hidden shops and museums. Numbering more than 800,000, there are more bicycles than people. Amsterdam also has 400 kilometres of cycling paths. Each home in Amsterdam is supported by around 10 poles, as they would otherwise sink away into the marshy ground. There are also 2,500 house boats floating on the 165 canals.
Brasserie Meuwese is an excellent starting point for a visit to this beautiful city, but it’s also ideal as a stopover, or as a place to finish off the day with a delicious dinner. All these attractions can be found in our neighbourhood.
Shopping on Kalverstraat or Waterlooplein
Famous from the Dutch version of Monopoly, Kalverstraat is well worth a visit in real life, too. Items by some of the world's biggest brands sell like hot cakes here, so the street is always pleasantly busy.
A little further is Waterlooplein, with its famous market. Here, you will find beautiful alternative clothing and goodies.
Has shopping tired you out? The sunny patio of Brasserie Meuwese awaits you at less than a 5 minute walk. We offer an oasis of calm.
A boat trip on the canals
Amsterdam’s canals were built to transport heavy goods to the warehouses in the city, which made Amsterdam a metropolis for trade in the 17th century. Today, they are mainly used for recreation. Tour boats depart several times per hour from the dock in front of our restaurant on the Rokin in Amsterdam. Board one, and you’ll be given a detailed explanation of the history of our capital city and see it in a whole new way. You can also rent a pedal boat for yourself, which allows you to experience the city from the water at your own pace.
Art and culture in the centre of Amsterdam
Annually, Amsterdam attracts millions of tourists and for good reason: the city is overloaded with cultural spots. The Dam, for example, includes iconic buildings such as the Royal Palace, the Nieuwe Kerk and the Beurs van Berlage, the epitome of the Amsterdam School. And the Tuschinski, one of the most beautiful theatres in the world, is located just off Rembrandtplein. The Allard Pierson Museum and de Kleine Komedie are also located right next to our brasserie. Combine a visit to any of these places with a snack and a drink at our restaurant on the Rokin in Amsterdam. This will guarantee you a wonderful day out.Make a reservation now
