Group Dinner Cruise Amsterdam

(Sailing Restaurant, With Chef on Board)

Blue Pepper’s dinner cruise is a culinary love affair

An exclusive multi-course meal is cooked on board by our chefs. There are no takeaways or food pickups from any catering companies. 

Champagne, exquisite wines, spirits and liquors are served on board to create a perfect evening.

It’s unique

You do not have to choose from preset menus. Our chefs will compose the entire menu in consultation with you. You tell us what you and your guests would like to eat and drink. And choose from over 50 wines, 10 different beers, and a large variety of spirits and liquors.

It’s totally flexible

From a buffet or flying dinner, to a luxurious formal, sit-down dinner, most budgets and formats can be accommodated.

We have done over four hundred of them for small boardroom meetings and presentations, to giant get-togethers and client receptions for global companies.

And of course, for intimate weddings and family celebrations. The dinner cruise is offered to groups of

8 to more than 100 on boats 

of different sizes.

Group lunch events can also be organized.


Drawing upon the talents of our diverse kitchen team, we can offer modern Dutch, Indonesian, Indian, Asian fusion, and Italian menus.

The menu is always finalised in consultation with you and the choice of meat, fish, seafood, poultry, game, and veg dishes is tailored to your wishes.

Below an example of one of our uniquely popular Global Cuisine menus  – The Flying Dutchman.

Abu and team were amazing. I was planning a 40 person dinner canal cruise– and didn’t want the standard offerings. Abu worked with me on the menu options to provide a unique experience. I highly recommend this restaurant or canal cruise!

We chose Blue Pepper for our Dutch client dinner because of its high ratings and reputation. Despite several changes in our itinerary and guest list and a few difficult food restrictions, they took very good care of us. Nothing was too much for them and those of us who chose some a la carte options were as happy as the others who mostly opted for their famous Indonesian rice table. Wine suggestions by the glass were plentiful as most of us wanted different things. An Indonesian beer was also available. We would definitely be interested in trying their dinner cruise during a warmer season. Very professional service and delicious food.

Blue Pepper recently organised a dinner cruise and reception in Amsterdam for one of our corporate marketing events. It was a perfect work of organisation, attention to detail in food and drinks and a beautifully set-up luxury boat that all of us loved. We had guests from different parts of the world and some had special food requests which were satisfied without a glitch. The team and the boat arrived well ahead of the event to pick us up from our hotel and greeted everyone on board with champagne before we sat down for a formal dinner around a long table decorated with candles and flowers. The menu featured Amsterdam’s well-known Indonesian food but was carefully constructed to be neither too spicy nor heavy and served at a pace to allow for all the drinks, including some fines wines, and lively conversation. They dropped us back at our hotel at the end of the cruise through the canals. A splendid evening. We couldn’t have asked for better event planning and execution.

We went on an exclusive dinner cruise with 16 people end of June 2019 and we can do nothing more than thanking the entire team for the great experience, fantastic service, ultra delicious food and the great atmosphere. The team has done a terrific job and it couldn’t have been any better.

A perfect evening dinner cruise through the canals. Very comfortable and quiet. Service efficient and friendly. Delicious food, set menu served family style (Asian/Indonesian). Multiple courses and all excellent. Very good wine pairing. €110/person without drinks so a little pricey but highly recommend.

I arranged a group event for a team that was traveling to Amsterdam for a conference from a large Redmond, WA, based company. Blue Pepper was BEYOND easy to work with from the original booking, to the last minute additional attendees we had, to the menu updates we requested – all asks were met with an easy “yes”. The feedback I received from everyone that attended the cruise was that it was AMAZING. Even though in chilly, rainy February, the boat was warm and they said the food was outstanding!! People said it was exceptional in every way possible. They really came through with a flawless experience. I would not hesitate for a moment to book this dinner cruise again for any group I work with.

We chose the Blue Pepper dinner cruise for the all-in tour of the canals with dinner and drinks. We had a very pleasant and relaxed evening, with a tour of the important Light Festival installations. What’s surprisingly nice is that unlike some of the other boats we passed by, this was not an overcrowded and noisy tour. A multi-course dinner menu was served with food being served at regular intervals, with a pour of matching wines. Charming service that made the whole tour seemed like an exclusive option to see the beautiful Amsterdam canals and the lights with a great deal of comfort.

Service was excellent, and the Indonesian food was fantastic! If you want something different and to see Amsterdam`s Canal Ring, I strongly recommend this dinner cruise. We were a group of 20 people travelling together, and the crew arranged one long table with white tablecloths, such a nice atmosphere! Many thanks to Abu and his crew for a great experience!

Amazing food and wines and beautiful, relaxed tour of Amsterdam on Blue Pepper’s luxury boat. On board bar carries a treasure trove of drinks and our group of about 20 had the highest level of service and satisfaction while on a conference stopover.
