A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Een Franse naam, een uit de Provence afkomstige chef (Arles om precies te zijn. Aha.), Franse wijnen, gerechten die eer doen aan de Franse keuken, kunst dat geïnspireerd is op de stad in Frankrijk en een heerlijk je ne sais quoi-sfeertje…tja hoe Frans wil je het hebben? Neo-bistro Arles in de Pijp is prettig laagdrempelig en toegankelijk. Chef Numa Muller kookt graag met producten die in het seizoen zijn en een groot deel van de ingrediënten komen van de Albert Cuypmarkt om de hoek. Iedere maand wisselt de kaart en wanneer het weer wisseltijd is proeft het hele team van de nieuwe gerechten. Gastvrouw Bette Hamersma heeft de mooie taak om de bijpassende wijnen erbij uit te zoeken. Je eet drie gangen voor 37 euro en kunt dit als je wilt nog verder uitbreiden met extra gerechten. Arles is een heerlijk restaurant waar je gewoon terug wilt blijven komen.

INSIDER tip

Tip van bySam: probeer (vooral in de zomer) een plekje in de serre te bemachtigen. Want dit is er eentje om verliefd op te worden. Vanaf je stoel kijk je zo uit op de met wijnranken begroeide patio.

    One of us had the Bib gourmand menu and one a la carte - both 3 courses. Couldn’t fault any of it, but the vitello mackerel, cod and chicken dishes were all exceptional. Also good was the riz au lait- the most luxurious rice pudding I have ever tasted! For the quality of the food, preparation and service, this was excellent value. The wine pairings were very well chosen. Would definitely return on a future visit to Amsterdam.

    The food is amazing, there was a meat, fish and vegetarian choice. The staff was super friendly, spoke great English and French in top of that. The toilets and the whole place was really clean and lovely decorated

    Little cosy restaurant in the famous De Pijp district. The food was just amazing, fresh products, great atmosphere. Definitely a place I’ll visit more often.

    Incredible menu, perfect wine pairing and good service. There was only one issue, but this affected our whole experience. The tables are very close together, so we spent our 'romantic' evening trying to tune out the conversations at the (loud) table next to us. Too bad because the food was superb.

    This was an anniversary meal (20th) and was everything we wanted. The atmosphere was calm, casual, intimate but not stuffy. The front of house staff were delightful. They were pleasant, attentive, good humoured but also very knowledgeable about the food and wine options. They were clearly enthusiasts for the food they were serving. The food was a nice blend of classic French and approachably innovative and absolutely delicious. The decor was simple with stylish art. The facilities very clean and fresh. We have friends coming to Amsterdam in the next few weeks and months and will definitely be recommending Arles.

    We had a lovely evening with very attentive staff, good wine advice and very good food. Interesting few words which describe the courses.... very good taste combinations and surprising elements.

    A jewel of contemporary cuisine, showcasing modern techniques and exquisite balance of flavours. Mackerel with cucumber and mint was a summery dance across the palate in which the delicacy of the ingredients came together in an agglomeration of taste. The little gem and apricot salad with duck yolk and miso dressing may well be the greatest salad I have ever tasted. Puddings are no less exquisite and the grown-up lemon meringue with zesty pink grapefruit pulp was a revelation. Merci, dank U, thank you. We shall return.

    We had a very pleasant evening here. The service was exemplary, the food delicious and the atmosphere relaxed and intimate. We both enjoyed all three courses, but what really stood out was the veal and the dessert - inspirational!

    What a local gem! We enjoyed an early Easter dinner with my family of four. Loved the options of the pre-fix menu. Our well traveled but still young teens loved their selections. Atmosphere was cory with the right amount of hip and flair. Service with warm and attentive and we greatly appreciate their time and working with us in english. Food was fantastic. We have already recommended to others who travel to Amsterdam frequently and will be back again. Thank you, William

About the restaurant

In 2016 heeft een groot aantal liefhebbers chef-kok, wereldreiziger en jazzmuzikant Numa Muller (Arles; 1985) uit Arles al ontdekt. Via pop-ups op verschillende locaties heeft Numa diverse malen Amsterdam laten kennismaken met zijn interpretatie van de neo-bistro. De kookstijl die in Parijs furore maakt en staat voor herkenbare gerechten, voorzien van nieuwe smaken en een vleugje je ne sais quoi, laat nu ook in de hoofdstad zijn ware gezicht zien. In een restaurant dat luistert naar de naam Arles. Enchanté.

Vanzelfsprekend is ook de ‘voorkant’ op niveau. Laurence Reintjens (Tilburg; 1990) werkte voorheen bij onder andere La Rive en Bridges in Amsterdam, waarna hij besloot zijn carrière voort te zetten in een toegankelijker type restaurant.

Laurence behoort tot de nieuwe generatie gastheren die gastvrijheid en wijnkennis in dienst stellen van een geslaagde gastronomische ervaring. Zijn kaart huisvest zowel traditionele als vin nature wijnen.
