#252 Pizza with a view: Mediamatic ETEN, Amsterdam (NL)

restaurant review #252 – Mediamatic ETEN is the restaurant of Mediamatic Biotoop, an arts center organising lectures, workshops and art projects, focusing on nature, biotechnology and art+science. It is located in a greenhouse on the waterfront with a nice view over Amsterdam. It is not a vegan restaurant, but they do have a lot of vegan options (on some evenings all vegan) and many vegetables come from their own greenhouse.

We were here on a lovely Summer evening a couple of weeks ago, and had made a reservation online. We were sat at a table for two, on the bank, with a nice view over the water.There were only pizzas available that evening (all vegan). We ordered the pizza nero and pizza rosso, both 15€.
We also wanted some nuts, but the waiter came back to say there weren’t any available that day, so we were offered some olives as a replacement (for free!).

The pizzas took a while to be served (although the place was certainly not packed).
They eventually came, and were realy nice. Original crispy pizzas. But still 15euro was a bit steep.

Service was mixed: one of the waiters was a very friendly guy, one of the others rather grumpy and came across as quite condescending.

The chairs outside were very uncomfortable, and an uneven pavement made the chairs and table quite unsteady.
The restaurant itself is wheelchair accessible (at least the greenhouse part and the outdoor seating – the inside room is with stairs up and I did not notice any wheelchair accessible toilets).

All in all: we loved the pizzas. Service a bit hit and miss. And although a beautiful view, not so comfortable sitting.
