Private dining

A birthday, after wedding party, drinks, business gatherings, presentations, private dining; we open our doors for whatever event you can think of. 

And if you like it, Carl Lemette and Mas van Putten love to talk about the mission of the Bearded Lady. About the drive, turning your weakness into a strength, intractability and the life of the Bearded Lady. They love to share their stories about the power of soulfood, where the best of the west meets the beauty of the east.

what we are proud of

Volkskrant Proefwerk

Soul food cookbook

For the moments you can’t make it to our deli, but still want one of our dishes on your plate: our Soul Food cookbook.

Shortlist Amsterdam 2018

After the loved Shortlist Amsterdam, there is now a list with the best culinary cafes in town. And we are in it!

Gault & Millau

We got a spot in the French restaurant guide “Gault & Millau”! They wrote they’ll come back for the vibe, food, drinks and DJ!


our story

Once upon a time we started the Bearded Lady to give us the perfect excuse to fill our kitchen table with friends. Our secret ingredient is some nostalgia, so they will come back time after time. Probably a little handicap about loving and being loved. But cosy for sure, all gathered around the kitchen table. That table became too small, so we started our deli in the city center of Amsterdam. 

With our European, Indonesian and Moluccan roots, the Bearded Lady has developed an Asian and Western style of cooking where east meets west in ingredients and recipes. We call it food for travelers and dreamers.

We mix Asian fusion, French and old-school Indonesian to serve a diversity of heavenly snacks and sophisticated menus.

“De “rijsttafel” is unconventional, but exactly what it should be: a banquet, a feast.”
— Hiske Versprille - Proefwerk Parool
“If you can only eat one last burger in your life, let it be the Miso Buttered Burger of the Bearded Lady. If you can only have two more burgers in your life, then eat two of them.”
— Willem Bosch (scenarioschrijver)
“Full, cheerful and original flavors that fill you head and your body with pure joy”
