Where to Eat

The ideal place to sit down, relax and have a bite after a long conference day is in the greenhouse of Mediamatic ETEN, located on the waterfront close to Muziekgebouw. This habitat offers locally-sourced food and self crafted beers on a sunny terrace: an oasis in the busy heart of Amsterdam.
