The terrace is one of the biggest in the Dutch capital, yet the location feels more rustic than urban. The restaurant is within the Royal Tropical Institute, a grand monumental building dating from 1926. This landmark also houses the Tropenmuseum, which displays an array of artefacts from global cultures. People do not have to visit the ethnographic museum to stop by at De Tropen. Piet Boon Studio designed the restaurant’s interior, which seats up to 90 guests and reopened in September after a renovation to make it one of Amsterdam’s hippest meeting spaces.
