Indonesian Haute Cuisine in Amsterdam

A Royal Indonesian Feast


Blue Pepper brings back to life what a Royal Indonesian Feast tasted like. Our rijsttafel takes you from mellow hints of spice to wickedly complex, rich dishes where spices remain centre-stage but using them properly is revealed as an art form.

The Sultan and I, our Rijsttafel consisting of lovingly curated Indonesian classics from the kitchen of tante Sonja Pereira, is a feast of fish/seafood, poultry and game, beef and lamb, and veg sides.

All dishes are available à la carte for sharing. Enjoy!

Vegan with a twist

Pan-Asian Vegan

Our vegan menu is extensive, consisting of elaborate and innovative twists on pan-Asian vegan traditions.

At Blue Pepper there’s no place for faux meat, fake sushi, or huge bowls of raw green stuff that make you feel the way cows feel. All laboriously cooked to perfection.

Amsterdam Light Festival

Dinner Cruise Amsterdam

Our next candlelight dinner cruises are during the 10th edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival. Combine sightseeing and light art installations while enjoying our culinary specialty. During the Light Festival the canals are magically lit as we pass the bustling red light district, the Ij and the Amstel, all while our chefs prepare a gastronomic 4-course tasting menu on board.
