Who is van Kerkwijk

Van Kerkwijk stands for good food and drink in an urban atmosphere.
That is logical because within walking distance are the world famous Red Light District and Grachtengordel and shopping area Kalverstraat and Nieuwendijk.

The Kerkwijk sisters opt for a personal approach. The menu of that day is explained at the table. Quirky, without harshness and for a good price. That is what we have stood for for more than 20 years. You immediately feel at home among the regular guests who return for the changing menu and relaxed atmosphere.

A quick business lunch, a coffee and a newspaper in the afternoon, an extensive dinner with good wine and drinks until late at the bar.

You can order up to 4 pm on the takeaway / delivery day. Pick up or delivery between 4 pm and 8 pm. Payment in cash or Tikkie. Call 0614746678 or Whatsapp
