The 5 best places to dine on the water in Amsterdam

1) Vuurtoren Eiland

Dining in a nature reserve on Vuurtoren Eiland became an instant hit when it was launched in 2013. You reach the island by boat and have dinner in a glass greenhouse while watching the sun set. The first restaurant burnt down, but now they’re back, bigger and stronger, with a summer and winter restaurant, and plans so guests can stay the night. Reserve well ahead.
