Indonesian Haute Cuisine in Amsterdam

A world of spices and exciting experiments

Blue Pepper offers the highest quality North Sea and locally sourced Dutch produce  cooked in a dazzling array of Asian spices. The result is an atlas of Indonesian and Indian flavours on your plate.

We bring back to life what a royal feast tasted like. Our Indonesian rice table (in Dutch, rijsttafel) and our modern Indian menus take 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.

Each of our menus, consisting of lovingly curated classics as well as modern creations, is a feast of fish and seafood, poultry and game, meat and vegetables, and pickles and sweets.

Our vegan menu is extensive, consisting of elaborate and innovative twists on Indonesian and Indian vegetarian traditions.

About Blue Pepper

Blue Pepper has been featured in The New York TimesThe Wall Street JournalUSA Today, Time Out, Der Feinschmecker, Dutch, German, and French Television, Dutch Elle and practically everywhere in the Dutch media for our contribution to Indonesian cuisine in the Netherlands.

From the classic recipes of our award-winning founding chef Mrs. Sonja Pereira (from Bandung, Indonesia), to the modern vegan creations of Mr. Wahyu Heri Sasmito (from Jakarta, Indonesia), we offer a panoramic view of Indonesian cooking and its continuing evolution.

In March 2024, Mr. Pradeep Rawat (from Uttarakhand, India) joined our team to expand our kitchen to modern Indian cuisine, adding several royal treats such as butter guinea fowl, venison biryani, and Indian vegetarian dishes one cannot find anywhere else in the Netherlands.

We are very proud of all our mentions in the Insider Top 201 of the Fork and earning The Tripadvisor badges for best selection as Insider in The Top 2021 of The Fork and to the Hall of Fame of Tripadvisor. We have been Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice regularly since 2017.

Dinner Cruise Amsterdam

* Offered to groups of 8 or more

Blue Pepper’s fairy tale dinner cruise combines the best of Amsterdam sightseeing with its culinary specialty – an Indonesian Rijsttafel.

Equally popular on our dinner cruise is our Global Cuisine menu The Flying Dutchman. This is a unique gastronomic menu offering the best of Dutch locally sourced produce cooked in a variety of European and Asian styles, light and flavourful but not spicy.

 You will be seated on our centrally heated luxury boat as it sails through the magically lit bridges and canals of Amsterdam, the bustling red-light district, the Ij and the Amstel rivers while our chefs prepare a gastronomic tasting menu, served hot at your table.
