Dining At The W Amsterdam

Taking a closer look inside two stunning restaurants at the W, Amsterdam - Words by Kate / Pictures by Kate...

If it’s food you are looking for in Amsterdam then the W Hotel should be your first port of call. I am a greedy bugger when it comes to food and my first job when I go travelling is to check out the local food joints, however as soon as I set eyes on the restaurants and menus at W Amsterdam I knew I wouldn’t have to go far to get my fill of delicious grub.

W Amsterdam is spilt in to two parts, the Bank Building and the Exchange Building, in both buildings reside two awesome restaurants, The Duchess and Mr. Porter and let me tell you, you wont be disappointed with either.


The Duchess is the most beautiful restaurant I have ever stepped in to (and I visit a lot of restaurants) The décor is breath taking, it almost made me feel posh and incredibly well off whilst scoffing my eggs Royale and sipping my perfectly blended tea! (I can assure you I’m far from it) The Duchess offer breakfast, lunch and dinner, I sampled all three and it’s a bold statement but I would eat there everyday of my life given the chance. If you are visiting I highly recommend trying the salted baked sea bass, the green risotto and for desert the chocolate explosion, trust me, you won’t want to leave.



Mr porter is a unique concept that artfully blends qualities of the modern steakhouse with the buzz and experience of a chic lounge. I spent one of my mornings in Mr. Porter whilst in Amsterdam and the breakfast was to die for, everything from Yoghurt pots to fresh juices and fry ups, they also offer a Mediterranean style buffet for breakfast which is incredible, if you like something out of the ordinary to start the day then Mr. Porter is the place to be.


Have you been to the W Hotel to eat or stay? Which W Hotel is your favourite? What was your favourite dish on the Menu?
