Dutch Food Elevated

With great pride and gratitude we can report that, on July 1st 2017, we have received the TRIPADVISOR Award of Excellence for the 7th year in a row.

Restaurant Greetje is the place to be to enjoy elevated Dutch cuisine with a ‘gezellige’ local vibe. Greetje’s creations are rooted in traditional Dutch cookbooks and in Greetje’s archive of recipes that were passed on from generation to generation. Originality is the thread that connects everything at Greetje, from the ingredients to the personal and friendly service.

All our dishes are prepared with love for the profession and respect to mother nature. These values are also at the core when it comes to our choices of suppliers.

 René T Loven Patron

Born and raised in Weert, in the south of The Netherlands. Youngest son of a middle class family. After a career both in The Netherlands and abroad I decided in 2005 to realize my dream and follow my passion by creating Restaurant Greetje. My ultimate goal was  “To exceed customer expectations by elevating Dutch cuisine to a higher culinary level”. After all these years, that is still what we do every day with our team of creative, passionate and  motivated professionals.

With the delicious and original ingredients produced from the fertile Dutch soil and waters we create a fabulous dining experience for you. A visit to Amsterdam wont be complete without a visit to Restaurant Greetje.
