Following the successful concept of Amsterdam steak restaurant De Nachtwacht (the grand master), Peter Smorenberg and his business associate Joyce Lieven have opened the Amsterdam restaurant Grill Bar Venus & Adonis (the apprentice).
Venus & Adonis is a particular restaurant in the heart of the Jordaan. She owes her name to the painting Venus & Adonis, painted by Rembrandts apprentice Ferdinand Bol. The influence of De Nachtwacht can partially be found in this sturdy, elegantly and eclectically styled restaurant, where you are also most welcome for a drink at the bar.
Our shared dining concept is most exceptional! The dishes are served on a wooden board in the middle of the table, so they can be shared.
Even if you come alone, you will not have to be alone! You can either pick a seat at the bar or at the large ‘greet & meet’ table. Alone and yet together!
You can find us in the Jordaan district, one of the most beautiful and enjoyable areas in Amsterdam, which is fully developing. Close to the city centre, the 9 streets and the Johnny Jordaansquare.
Our kitchen is open for lunch on Monday till Thursday from 5pm till 11pm and on Friday till Sunday from 12pm till 11pm.
We will be closed on first Christmas day.
1016 HH Amsterdam
