Somewhere with the casual atmosphere of a living room and the tasty food of a good restaurant: this was what Pastis owners Anna Mol and Ingrid van den Akker found to be missing in their lively Amsterdam Old-West neighbourhood. “So, we started the restaurant that we wanted to have,” Mol explains. Pastis became a pride and passion: “The guests, the food and the restaurant… it is a lively mix of everything: a café-restaurant where locals and visitors to the city can meet and where we offer a delicious seasonal menu with a French twist and a touch of the Mediterranean.”
