Welcome at Vessel

Vessel is a place where people come together. It’s a vibrant hangout to get cosy around the fireplace during those cold days, and a local beach in the summer with an amazing view overlooking the IJ. All year round, Vessel is your all-day destination to eat, enjoy and share delicious dishes.

Come by, escape the hectic city buzz to relax and meet like-minded people in a dynamic, lively atmosphere.


At Vessel, we believe that all good things in life are meant to be shared: good company, good food and good vibes. Therefore, we have created a menu entirely of culinary dishes that are easy to share.

Our chef creates dishes made with seasonal and (mostly) plant-based ingredients, sourced from local suppliers as much as possible.

Some of our fellow foodies, neighbours and farmers we work with:

Vishandel Jan van As, sustainable, wild fish straight from the sea
Gotjé noten, roasting the best nuts for four generations
Pieter van Meel, for beautiful game and poultry, caught in the Netherlands
Nice to meat, for the best meat from farmers
Cuimed, for Meditarean fine food & the best Spanish wines
Schutpapier, the tomato fibre paper used for our menus

Our menu is bursting with creative and nourishing dishes that change every season. Expect everything to be surprising yet super pure in its being. No-nonsense, no fuss. Meat, fish or vegan lover? We’ve got you covered!

The best things in life are shared. Right now and in the future. That’s why sustainability and taking care of the planet is our priority. Our chef Freek has created a menu of culinary dishes – made of local ingredients – that are easy to share (…if you can handle the temptation). “I would love to challenge you to try something new and get amazed by the taste of our gastronomic specials.”


Can’t wait to try our food? Make sure you get a spot and book a table via our online reservation tool. For groups of 15 people and more, it’s best to email events@vesselamsterdam.nl.
