Eat out, eat proud in gay Amsterdam. The city has a reputation as one of the friendliest gay cities in the world, and in addition to its nightlife it has many gay restaurants. Amsterdam's laissez-faire approach to varied lifestyles means any restaurant you find is bound to be open and friendly, but there's a number of restaurants that are clearly out and proud. In Amsterdam, every neighborhood is a pride neighborhood.

Start your night in Centrum

Amsterdam-Centrum is the hub of the city, a perfect place to launch your night, and a perfect place for food and drinks before the party starts. As the heart of the city, Centrum has a number of options to meet your mood and your plans. Start things off classy on the patio of Café de Jaren, boasting a continental European menu and spacious bistro atmosphere, then head out to the wealth of gay clubs and bars nearby. Or go wild at the gay restaurant Amsterdam Supperclub. They offer a five-course surprise menu, an on-site gallery and an afterhours club to ensure you don't have to even step outside to have a wild night.

Take a quiet afternoon

For a different flavor of the gay restaurant Amsterdam scene, try Grachtengordel-Zuidprovides. This quiet neighborhood offers refuge from the hectic sensations of downtown Amsterdam. Relax after a late night out at De Koffie Salon, where the atmosphere is warm and the sights are hot. A variety of coffees and pastries are available as you nurse your hangover and peoplewatch. Or, prepare yourself for another night out with the hearty fillings at Mankind, which has a view of the canal. With its proximity to local museum and nightlife districts, it's a great place to catch up with friends or meet someone new before going out.

Move a little west for a little romance

Grachtengordel-West is a little more quaint, a little more traditional; a perfect place to take someone special. As far as gay restaurants in Amsterdam go, you can't find a place cozier than de Struisvogel. Its traditional French ambiance and cozy set-up is a perfect place to spend with that someone special. Then stroll the neighborhood, stopping at Lanskroon for some coffee and ice cream.
