Grand Café

The Grand Café restaurant at De Balie is a friendly and accesible meetingspace, located near the lively Leidse square in the centre of Amsterdam. De Balie is the right place to work on your laptop in the morning while having an espresso and breakfast, to enjoy an appetizing dinner before going to one of our programs or concerts or to drink a beer with your friends. Our menu offers nice, homemade dishes for an affordable price. The meat we serve comes exclusively from animals that have had a good life, and we try to use seasonal vegetables as much as possible. We also always offer a vegetarian choice on our menu.


On thursday and friday night you can have a dance at De Balie Draait, with different DJ's each week. We also serve mixed drinks for friendly pricing.  We also like to help you think about organizing private dinners, drinks and other enjoyable occasions for large and small groups. 

Good to know: the proceeds from our restaurant and bar help fund the cultural programming at De Balie.


We advise you to reserve for a 1, 5 hour dinner at the very least, to enjoy your dinner peacefully.
