    A ten might sound exorbitant but the environment, the staff and the outstanding wine pairing with the delicate dishes you get at Publiek are far above any level I have found yet at this price category in Amsterdam. A definite must-go!

    Far better than I expected, and I already thought it'd be great going in. Awesome and chill staff, and excellent food (including a cheese board of 8 cheese thoroughly explained to us and prepared tableside). Heerlijk.

    Wonderfull experience, 100% recommend. We had the four-course dinner available with a Fork reservation. The food was great and so was the atmosphere on the terrace right next to the water. Our favourite part was the service. The staff is knowledgeable about the menu and the wine options and also very pleasant and fun! Especially the server from Wales, she made our night.

    Really loved the technical explanations regarding the complexity of the dishes and wines. Had an elaborate discussion on how certain beers end up on

    The food menu is pretty short but each item is delicious. Especially nice that you can order a 3 course meal for special price!

    Pleasantly surprised by the selection of dishes and the quality. I believe the new direction might work very well. Hopefully the three restaurants will continue to complement each other's cuisine. Chapeau!

    We were very well received! The starters were great (goat cheese and mussels). The other choices were also very nice (gnocchi and seabass), but the starters impressed us. The place is good in a beautiful neighborhood and definitely we will go there again.

    Very nice and quiet restaurant with a truly good and very welcoming service. The dishes were a piece of art and with nicely balanced flavors. It was nice that it was possible to adjust dishes for gluten-free diet. Minor comments: the portions were a bit small (especially for starters) and the menu is a bit limited as there are only around 4 options to choose for starter/main dish/dessert. But overall the experience was very positive and I would definitely visit it again and recommend it.

    Though the service was really enjoyable, and the food was prepared well, the menu was extremely conservative and rather expensive for something that’s not quite that interesting?

About the restaurant

We are a fine casual restaurant. We are a bistro with lots of extra thought and passion invested in the food menu, the wine list, our beers and non-alcoholic drinks. We strive on exceeding our guests' expectations, be it in terms of food and drinks or service quality.

Cafe-Bistro Publiek was started up in August 2019 by 3 friends whom wanted to do things a little differently. Leroy heads the kitchen, Youp runs service and Ben is in between the two!

Publiek is one-third french (on Ben's side) and that's more than enough as far as the other two are concerned ;)

Fun fact: Ben's father Remi is an established wine professional in Montpellier (France) and assists in the selecting of the wines for this cosy, comfortable Amsterdam restaurant.
