Description: MOES is a bar and restaurant in the basement underneath De Appel arts center. Seasonal, local products are the basis of the international menu. Once a month, the menu is completely without fish or meat. MOES makes a modest contribution to reducing the distance from farm to fork by growing it's own herbs in the garden.2012 Architects from Rotterdam designed the interior with the same philosophy: what you can get from nearby, is good. Through a 'harvest map' building materials from the environment are found and re-used.Opening hours: Tuesday - Friday 17h00-23h00, Saturday 12h00-23h00, Sunday 12h00-18h00 and Monday closed. Groups of 10 or more people can contact us for business or private meetings outside opening hours

Discovered Moes by TripAdvisors App looking for a good place to eat. The asparagus soup was a great starter and the meals were fabulous. The staff was friendly and professional. We found Moes easy to find with the address and looking for Appel Arts Centr. A Great Find.

We went to Moes for afternoon drinks when we were visiting the Appel Arts Centre above it, and were really impressed by the decor by young Rotterdam architects, the friendly service and nice drinks. It's a very informal place, with a nice quirky feel to the whole affair. It's a bit off the beaten track but a nice walk along... More

Found the place by accident on our way to the Botanic gardren. We had some trouble getting our stroller down the steep stairs but it was definitly worth the effort. Relaxing atmosphere, good food and friendly staff!

Booked a table at Moes on Saturday night. We didn't want to go to a chain restaurant and saw this online, after reading several good reviews. It was 5 minutes from Central Station, near to where we were staying. It is a real nice place, the staff were friendly and welcoming. We only had mains as we had eaten a... More

Nice and informal. Relaxed Place to eat dinner. Great food. If you order the wine per bottle and don't finish it, you pay only what you have drunken

We stumbled on Moes by looking for dinner in Amsterdam that wasn't 'Argentinean', Italian or fast food. Found this place that is just off the beaten track, but we are so glad that we did. Arrived fairly late but the service and food were still all excellent. The service by the waiter (evening of Saturday 1st March) was fantastic: personable,... More

You can bring your own drinks to this restaurant, what a great idea! You can eat best home make cookies in town, when you order coffee or thee. When ever there is a new menu, you are invited to come and taste it. The place is built with materials from the neighborhood. And there is a even a room for... More

Atmosphere cool, relaxed, arty, welcoming from the start. We only came in for a beer, but having looked over the menu decided to stay a bit longer. This is a million miles from posh or stuffy, but Moes has an excellent reasonably priced wine list. We asked the water to recommend a beer for our food. He made a great... More

This is a great place to eat. If you are ever in Amsterdam, make sure you do your research and track this place down. Vibrant atmosphere from the moment you walk in. Waitress was welcoming and friendly throughout the service. As we were seated the chefs gave us a cheery greeting from the open plan kitchen. The flavours emanating from... More
