There they are finally: The Saturday lunch and the Dinner box

At Brasserie van Baerle, everything was always possible – within certain limits. A quick Lunch because a lecture was scheduled at 1 pm in the Stedelijk, no problem. Lunch at 3.30 pm because there was a meeting in the Rijks at 1 pm, no problem. Want to raise  a glass of Champagne on a recently sold or bought house at 4 pm, fine. Dinner before a performance in the Concertgebouw, welcome. Supper after a  Concertgebouw performance,  excellent. But there was always one thing that was not possible and that was lunch with us on Saturday afternoon. But that has changed, by popular demand. The Brasserie is now also open for lunch on Saturday (from 12 noon). Ideal to combine with a visit to the museums, the Zuidermarkt or the PC Hooftstraat.

New: the Van Baerle Dinner Box

An extra option of our Take away service: The Dinner Box. This is ready-made, prepared and sealed. So you don’t need  to picked it up hot and à la minute,  but it can be prepared au-bain-marie at any time. For the coming weeks, the Diner Box contains:

Starter: Van Baerle’s Bouillabaisse with rouille, Parmesan cheese and croutons
Main course: Confit de Canard with a lentil salad with parsley, shallot and lime
Cheeses: Three seasonal cheeses from Bourgondisch Lifestyle
Dessert: 2 homemade friandises to accompany your  coffee or tea.

Nice though. Especially for the culinary stay-at-home friends. We have selected a nice wine with it. For a prix d’ami. The price is 32 euros per person. Order one day in advance; and pick up every day (except Monday) from 11 am. So just press that TAKE AWAY  button above.

Furthermore, a new Newsletter has been published (in Dutch).

Corona rules

The Corona restrictions imply  that  work will have to be done in a different way. We follow the safety instructions, for your and our health. We ask for your understanding and we would appreciate that you have a close look at these rules before booking and before visiting our restaurant.


Started as the most  successful breakfast and lunch restaurant in the city, Brasserie van Baerle is now a household name in Amsterdam: a culinary “institute” with the profile of a “modern classic”.

The compact lunch and dinner menu consist of both classic dishes from the – predominantly French – brasserie cuisine and innovative contemporary dishes (also veg & vegan), in which we distinguish the trends from the hypes. During the season there are always oysters, asparagus and lobster.
In addition to À la carte menu, there is a varying 3-course menu for both lunch and dinner. Awarded a BIB Gourmand every year by Michelin since 2010.

Brasserie van Baerle has also always distinguished itself with a high-quality but surveyable wine list of “Old World” wines, predominantly French. This wine list has received several awards for its quality, accessibility and wine / food advice. Grootspraak, the restaurant guide for wine lovers, has ranked Brasserie van Baerle among the best “wine restaurants” in Amsterdam for years.

Our PRIVATE DINING ROOM* is a stylish and attractive space, suitable for:

  • Dinner or lunch (max. 45 pers.)
  • Workshops / presentations / meetings (approx. 30 pers.)
  • Receptions / standing drinks: max. 80 people
  • Combinations, e.g. Meeting followed by lunch or dinner.

There is a bar, and if desired, different table arrangements can be realized (with a maximum of 30 people at one large table). Advanced audiovisual equipment is available. All catering is provided by Brasserie van Baerle. The rental price applies per half day and depends on the expenditure.
