Garlic Queen

The one and only garlic restaurant in Amsterdam!

In 1997 John and Geert opened the Garlic Queen: the first garlic restaurant in The Netherlands. Dutch media loved the pioneering concept. And Johannes van Dam, the most famous culinary journalist of the Netherlands, awarded the restaurant with a 9 out of 10. A dream start.

Now, almost 20 years later, the Garlic Queen is still going strong in the Reguliersdwarsstraat. Regular- and new customers find their way to the intimate restaurant in one of the most buzzing streets in Amsterdam. For the amazing dishes from Geert, the royal service from John or because they can’t wait to try the garlic liqueur or garlic beer brewed exclusively for Garlic Queen.

biological products and a lot of love

The Garlic Queens secret? Consistent quality. John and Geert offer majestic service and mouth-watering dishes since 1997. Their Garlic Baker and beef stew have become true classics. The dishes are prepared with biological products and a lot of love. The most important ingredient, garlic, comes in fresh everyday from Biesheuvel Knoflook Slootdorp, a small village close to Amsterdam.
