Heartwarming Amsterdam

RAI Amsterdam consciously decided to use regional products in its kitchens and to remove vulnerable ingredients from its range with the "Hartverwarmend Amsterdam" (Heart-warming Amsterdam) concept. The products in this concept have added value for the region or society in general. Care farms for day care or education, small local farms, urban greenhouses and cheese farms from the local area are suppliers but an important source of inspiration as well. This supports vulnerable producers from our urbanised surroundings and you are able to enjoy wonderful seasonal products which you do not come across every day.


THE ROAST ROOM is the unique meat eating experience of Amsterdam. Surrounded by the craftsmanship, open kitchens with Beech ovens and the sturdy, yet classically designed interior, you can enjoy the best cuts of meat, burgers, charcuterie and sausages from the restaurant’s own butchery. THE ROAST BAR is a brasserie style restaurant on the ground floor. The ROTISSERIE is our fine dining restaurant on the first floor. Do you want to enjoy this unique meat eating yourself? Reserve your table here.
