After gaining 21 years of experience in the gastronomy field, chef Orlando David opened R21 (“Restaurant 21”) in November 2023. The restaurant is located in a monumental building at 23 Peperstraat in Amsterdam, in a historic neighbourhood near the Waterlooplein and the Maritime Museum. David has a lifelong passion for travel, has studied many cuisines around the world, and bases his menu on the inspiration he has gained during his travels. R21 focuses on fine dining. The goal is to provide a culinary experience for a broad audience. The concept focuses on international dishes, 6 to 8-course menus, hospitality, and an extensive wine selection. The interior of the restaurant is characterized by old and new: David loves modern design but also has a weakness for authentic elements. The monumental building serves as a canvas for the sleek, atmospheric, and modern interior.
