Entertainment in Amsterdam

Entertainment in Amsterdam...what is entertainment? Or what isn't entertainment? We realise that our division between "Theatres & Concert Halls" and "Entertainment" might be debatable, but hopefully you will find what you are looking for! On this page you will find our recommendations for what we call entertainment in Amsterdam.
Go to the details & reviews page of Palazzo, dinner theatre in Amsterdam Zuidoost Palazzo is a dinner theatre show and is only open in winter, for four months. During these months you can enjoy a delicious four-course dinner and spectacular show at the same time. Three Michelin-stars, Dutch master chef Cees Helder will be responsible for the culinary part of the evening.

The accompanied show offers a mixture of comedians, acrobats, magicians and singers. If you see it as just a dinner, then you might think it is a bit pricey, but for a whole evening of entertainment and food, the price is reasonable.

Go to the details & reviews page of Pasta e Basta, an Italian restaurant with singing waiters in Amsterdam Pasta e Basta is more than just an Italian restaurant. In this restaurant you are served by singing waiters and waitresses. They bring your food while singing an aria, a pop song, or part of a musical. Most of them are pretty good! And so is the food. Especially the antipasti, which is served as a buffet in an open wing grand piano.

Good food, good wine and good music is a winning combination! And they know this at restaurant Pasta e Basta; an evening here is a true dinning experience. La vita è bella!
