Oh dear, gay and lesbian restaurants…. The first two are more or less gay, the others used to be gay, once upon a time…
And the others are…
Singel 101 020 – 625 25 81
Formerly Sing Singel, this restaurant has made a new start recently. New owners and new management have renamed the restaurant and put the focus of it’s menu on mediterranean cuisine. Not a specific branch of that cuisine, but food from every corner of the Mediterranean Sea. To quote their mail: they are “still very gay (friendly)”. We will check this place out shortly.
Torensteeg 1 From 16.00 hours, Mo & We closed
One of the mainstays in the local gay-cuisine. Small and hidden in a small street, the plates are loaded with decent food for a reasonable price. The atmosphere is cosy, thanks to the traditional interior. There are regular drag queen activities for your dinner time entertainment. The specials are the bachelor parties for gay or lesbian couples who are about to get married. With a bit of luck there will be still a place free for you at the table.
Brouwersgracht 60 Daily from 18.00 till 22.00 hours
Restaurant with spectacular Art-Nouveau interior; in summer terras on the canal front with view on the Herengracht. French-Italian orientated cuisine, food of very good quality, slightly upmarket but still reasonable.
Nieuwe Doelenstraat 20-22
Also café, spectacular terrass almost in the canal!
Oude Waal 9
Famous for – and named after – its choclate mousse
Rembrandtplein 6 From 8.00 hours
Gay owned restaurant on the small side of the Rembrandtplein. Good for coffee with cakes, lunch (salads, omelettes, quiches) and simple dinners (beef, french fries and salad-type). Not expensive, but quick.
Elandsgracht 29 Daily from 18.00 h
A restaurant in the best Thai tradition: excellent food and friendly waiters. The interior is everything but traditional. The designer (found to be helping in the restaurant) put a personal touch to every aspect of the restaurant and gave it a post modern romantic feel.
