Restaurants in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is known for its many well-known and varied restaurants. Metro 52 brings you within a few minutes at the heart of Amsterdam where you have an extensive choice of many restaurants and bars. But there are also restaurants within walking distance of the RAI, which often have an outside terrace. Relax and enjoy the end of your day here.

Heartwarming Amsterdam

The combination of our choice to work with regional producers and other sustainable decisions and partnerships we’ve established have been blended together in the regional Heartwarming Amsterdam catering concept. This allows us to realise any catering demands with regional and/or seasonal products, and to make a clear statement of our intention to benefit society.

Local partners

The Heartwarming Amsterdam concept includes partnerships with many suppliers in the region. For instance, the tomatoes used for products such as our own RAI ketchup are produced by the Stadskwekerij Osdorp urban farm. In addition to fresh & healthy vegetables, the farm provides meaningful activities and training to its employees.

We believe that sustainable concepts should go hand in hand with sustainable behaviour, which is why we procure our products economically and provide a weekly three-course meal to some fifty guests at the Salvation Army facility in Amsterdam North.
