'The Grand Dutch Residence embracing the charm and heritage of the city'

Ronald Opten, Maître Restaurant La Rive:
"Wine is my passion but also my hobby. There are over a thousand wines on La Rive's wine list and I know them all. It's wonderful to be able to share taste experiences. The same goes for our distilled drinks collection - for example the very old genever from distillery De Ooievaar, or the fantastic Armagnac from Darroze. These are family businesses which instil knowledge and passion into their products."

Culinary excellence and extraordinary hospitality place Michelin-starred La Rive in a class of its own.

La Rive selected as Amsterdam's best restaurant
Under the inspired culinary leadership of Chef de Cuisine Rogér Rassin, Maître Ronald Opten en Sommelier Ted Bunnik, La Rive was voted Amsterdam's best restaurant in the 2013 Lekker (Delicious) restaurant guide. It is a member of the culinary association Alliance Gastronomique. The exceptional wine expertise of our three sommeliers and the specially commissioned porcelain and silver all contribute to a unique and unforgettable dining experience.

La Rive offers you the choice of two six-course menus. La Rive Gauche is a tasting of Executive Chef Rogér Rassin's signature dishes. La Rive Droite is a tasting of new dishes, inspired by the season and market availability. You can pair these menus with our Wine Experience or choose from the two extensive wine menus compiled by Maître-Sommelier Ronald Opten, Sommelier Ted Bunnik and Assistant Sommelier Hans van Schaik.
You are of course free to order any of the dishes à la carte. In fine weather, enjoy your aperitif and dinner on the elegant La Rive terrace.
