Yet More Michelin Stars for Amsterdam

As in 2009, 2010 and 2011, the number of Amsterdam restaurants having been awarded a Michelin star has increased in 2012. And yet again, no restaurant has gone from two to three or even from one to two, but a newcomer has received a first star.

This year it was Restaurant Lastage, located in a marvelous canal house near Nieuwmarkt, that was awarded the much coveted star.

With most Michelin stars in Amsterdam still associated with hotel restaurants, it’s nice to see another independent and less formal restaurant on the list, similarly to Le Restaurant in 2010.

There is now a total of 11 stars in Amsterdam: Ciel Bleu and Ron Blaauw with two each and Aan de Poel, La Rive, Yamazato, Le Restaurant (2010), Vinkeles (2010), Vermeer (2011) and Lastage (2012) with one.

  1. Hey there-

    I’m going to be in Amsterdam in SEP for my bachelor party. We love great food. Looking a great mix of food and ambiance. do you have any recommendations?

  2. Hey Peter,

    I noticed that you asked your question on a post about Michelin stars. We usually prefer a more informal setting with high quality food, which might also suit your bachelor party.

    Incidentally we just posted about Ron Gastrobar – a former two Michelin star restaurant converted into a more casual restaurant. Check it out. Sounds just right for you: http://dutchgrub.com/2013/08/31/ron-gastrobar-michelin-quality-without-the-formality/
