A tasty meal and a beautiful experience

Want to eat a quick and tasty dinner before your Amsterdam Light Festival Canal Cruise without worrying about missing your boat? Then our cruise and dinner combination is for you. You’ll see all the beautiful light art of the annual Amsterdam Light Festival after you’ve enjoyed an appetizing meal at our LOVERS Café.

The 11th edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival has the theme Imagine Beyond. With this theme, the festival will take you on a journey to the world of imagination. Imagination allows us to envision the day of tomorrow however we like, we can dream beyond the here and now. Step inside our LOVERS Café for a pleasant meal before walking down the quay for a cruise past the various light art.

A favourite Dutch meal

An hour before you hop on board for your canal cruise, you can step inside the cosy LOVERS Café to enjoy a meal which is a favourite amongst many Dutch people and only available at the Café during the Amsterdam Light Festival. Your ticket will include the canal cruise, the meal and a drink from the Dutch bar.

The menu for the meal consists of a mix of Indonesian and Dutch foods: satay, fries, and acar with onion. Indonesian foods have become an integral part of Dutch cuisine due to the shared colonial history. The satay on the menu is seasoned chicken, skewered with a spicy peanut sauce, and acar is pickled vegetables.

The best boat tour of the Amsterdam Light Festival 2022-2023

From the water, you have a first-class view of the Amsterdam Light Festival, while you can relax and take it all in. The water route of the festival is designed in such a way that you can see all the artworks that are both on the canals and on the quayside. Our modern, comfortable and heated boats  are a great way to enjoy the Amsterdam Light Festival.

Along the way, the audio guide (in Dutch & English) tells you more about the beautiful light installations you see along the light festival tour in Amsterdam. Each works of art on display for this light tour through Amsterdam naturally tells its own story, however, there are many common themes and stories to discover.
