De Kas is a unique restaurant concept located in a large greenhouse in Frankendael Park - not too far from Amstel station in the south east of Amsterdam.
De Kas is run by former Michelin star rated chef Gert Jan Hageman and uses only fresh ingredients sourced locally, much of it organic. The restaurant grows its own herbs and vegetables on site and at a nearby piece of land which they own.
De Kas offers a 3 course set menu for €49.50 consisting of 3 small starters, a main and a dessert. While not cheap, the food is imaginative and of the highest quality and the restaurant has a very nice atmosphere with plenty of natural light. There is also the special option of sitting at the chef's table (2-4 people) in the kitchen - this costs €130 per head and includes wine.
The cuisine is inspired by a rural Mediterranean style combining fresh vegetables with fish and meat. Alternatively there is a full vegetarian option available.
A 2 course lunch menu is also available for €39 - in the summer this can be taken outside in the herb garden.
An extensive wine list is available and prices range from €25.50 to €125 per bottle or from €4.25 per glass.
De Kas is also open to group and party bookings. It is recommended that you make a reservation.
De Kas is open for lunch Monday to Fridays (1200-1400) and for dinner Monday to Saturdays (1830-2200). It is closed on Sundays.
Getting there: De Kas is a 10 - 15 minute walk from Amstel station. Alternatively take the no. 9 tram from Central station to stop "Hogeweg".
