We really love the hugely buzzy Hotel de Goudfazant. Situated in the middle of nowhere, this unlikely location hosts a cavernous-restaurant on the docks based in an old warehouse and which, despite the name, has no hotel attached. Great affordable food, vast and beautiful room, trendy, hugely vibrant atmosphere every day of the week and still buzzing later than most Amsterdam restaurants. It has a really extraordinary private room (the warehouse is so big there are old cars parked inside it including a classic porche). We hired this private space for a wonderful dinner for 25 but probably could have seated 100. This is one of the few places where you’ll either need a car or need to get there in an Uber.
