Have a Seat
Discover the hidden gems of Amsterdam and be surprised!

How does it work?

We surprise you with a unique restaurant.

You want to eat somewhere

You want to have a good dinner, but you don't know where, and don't want to spend time searching.

You tell us your wishes

Go to our website and select in which part of town, when, for how much and with how many people you want to eat. If you want, let us know the type of kitchen you prefer and any other requests. We will find the perfect restaurant for you and make a reservation.

You'll receive the address one hour in advance

One hour before your reservation we will send you a message by SMS and e-mail with the address of your unique restaurant. All you have to do is enjoy your surprise.

"I was very happy with the choice of the restaurant. I had never been there before and it fit perfectly to the evening I had in mind. Keep it up!"

Alex (22), Indische Buurt

"I live in the same street as the restaurant that we went to. It never caught my eye, but I'm glad I discovered it now. I will definitely use Have a Seat again!"

Valentijn (22), Centre

"I was happily surprised! Even though the restaurant is close to where I live, and at a great location, I didn't know of it's existence. Thanks for the great evening."
