Food & drinks in the RAI

Our restaurants

RAI Amsterdam has sufficient fixed and flexible catering locations. Enjoy a cup of coffee with a freshly baked croissant, a la carte lunch, Thai food from a food truck or a fresh beer with your feet in the sand.

We love to serve food to everyone’s taste.

Grand Café

Grand Café is the excellent place to meet or start your day with a freshly ground cup of coffee. Relax on our comfy lounge seats with friends or colleagues or enjoy a delicious lunch.

The Food Collective

The Food Collective actually houses three different catering concepts. The Sushi Club for freshly made sushi from the sushi bar. The Balcony Bar Lounge for a delicious cappuccino and croissant in the morning or a drink together with a snack in the afternoon. And there is also the a la carte restaurant, At Twelve, that is especially popular during lunch time.


Behind the RAI with a view on the water, you will find Strandzuid. An oasis of peace, comfort and summer. When the sun is out you can enjoy the heated terrace, with a view over the Beatrixpark. Strandzuid is open daily for lunch, drinks or dinner in the evening.

The Traveller

All Aboard! The Traveller, the cosmopolitan restaurant in Amsterdam-Zuidoost, opened its second location in the RAI at the end of October 2021.

The menu at The Traveller is adventurous, with a mix of traditional world dishes prepared according to modern cooking techniques. And with beers and wines originating from all corners of the earth, the bar menu offers a true voyage of discovery. Local residents, entrepreneurs, students and conference visitors are welcome from morning until late in the evening for just a cup of coffee, fresh smoothie, lunch or dinner.
