Baut is a temporary restaurant and was meant to close its doors on the 31st of January. Luckily they’ve added another 90 days. So there is just a litte more time left to enjoy the great food that this place has to offer.
Baut is situated in a building that used to be the head office of the Volkskrant, one of the biggest Dutch newspapers. They’ve created the name of the restaurant out of calender paper on one of the walls, every day one of the days is taken off until at the end the name will entirely disappear. The restaurant is nicely decorated and has a warm vibe because of the lighting and different seating areas. Also Baut has a beautiful big terrace with sun all day long.
And then of course there is the food. The menu consists of different smaller dishes which can be ordered together to share complemented by side dishes. The dishes on the menu are subdivided to origin: France, Italy, Asia, and of course the Netherlands. The two of us had three dishes and one side dish to share which was exactly the right amount of food altogether. We had planned to have a dessert but in fact there wasn’t any room left!
Make sure to make a (online) reservation well in advance as Baut is a very very popular spot.
