Varend Restaurant Amsterdam | floating dinner


kleine gele lijn


Enjoy a 3-course menu of choice in three different restaurants. Running Dinner Amsterdam combines a tour in a comfortable saloon boat with the culinary delights of Amsterdam restaurants. With a running dinner you eat the starter, main course and dessert in three different restaurants. The common factor is that all three restaurants can be reached by water.

You will be truly spoiled with the Running Dinner Amsterdam package. We have a wide selection of restaurants or you can also choose the locations yourself. We will ensure that they are connected by a nice route.

Why choose one location when we can just as easily dock at three different restaurants? Along the way our captain/guide will entertain you with the best stories and anecdotes. We will show you why the Amsterdam canals are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. You will also get to know several restaurants in Amsterdam in one evening.

Floating dinner Amsterdam package

With a running dinner you can comfortably sail from restaurant to restaurant. The captain will always moor the boat in front of a restaurant so that you simply need to disembark to reach it. The continual change of restaurants will give your boat trip a dynamic character. You will still have plenty of time to catch up or network. With a running dinner you and your guests can enjoy different tastes in the restaurants of your choice. We can tailor a running dinner cruise to your requirements.

It is possible for both small and large groups

The Running Dinner Amsterdam package is possible for a group of six people or more. We also have capacity for more foodies on board. We will deploy several riverboats at the same time for groups of over 40 guests. The groups will continually mix on board before being reunited at the restaurants.

What is the difference between a running dinner and a dinner cruise?

With a running dinner, you sail from restaurant to restaurant. You then eat the dishes at the various restaurants. With an Amsterdam dinner cruise - also known as floating dinner - the dishes are served and eaten on board.

How many courses are served?

Rederij Mokum organises the running dinner according to your wishes. Would you like a 3, 4 or 5 course dinner? Just let us know. We are happy to tailor the program to you and your group.

What is the difference between a running dinner and a walking dinner?

A Running Dinner is a dinner where you eat every course in a different restaurant.
A Walking Dinner is a dinner without fixed seating. Several small dishes are served. There is no fixed seating. The dinner is essentially eaten while standing/walking. Rederij Mokum only organises running dinners.

Can we choose the restaurants ourselves?

Yes, the list of participating restaurants is available on request. We offer a large selection of restaurants and ensure that they are connected via a nice route.

    Selection of good running dinner restaurants

    The harbour club Amterdam


    The Harbor club is now an essential part of the capital. The location is grand, exciting and populated by guests who do not have to look at a dime. The large Fruits de Mere dishes go from hand to hand as if it were a portion of herring with onion.

    For top quality seafood - but beware: also for meat - you've come to the right place. Mooring is possible in front of the door. Note sailing distance from the center is quickly an hour.


    hotel de goud fazant amsterdam


    Contrary to what the name suggests, you cannot spend the night at Hotel de Goudfazant. However, you can eat a delicious 3-course menu here for 30 euros. The former factory warehouse of over 1000 m2 has been furnished with a sense of decorum. The shed has retained its industrial character.

    The rusty poles and old garage bridge contrast sharply with the tightly covered linen tables. Don't let the decoration fool you. Here the stars of heaven are being cooked. Very suitable for larger groups.


    Hannekes boom running dinner


    Hannekes Boom is perhaps one of the most beautiful places in Amsterdam. From the terrace you have a beautiful view over the Oosterdok and the Nemo. Hannekes Boom was once entirely made up of residual materials according to the cradle-to-cradle principle. Don't be fooled by the organic appearance.

    The kitchen is really formidable. The menu has a meat, fish and vegetarian dish on the menu every day. Hanneke's burger is phenomenal.
