With Wils, Joris Bijdendijk opens his own restaurant

With the arrival of Joris Bijdendijk's restaurant Wils at Stadionplein, Amsterdam has rightfully added a new culinary entertainment area. After Neni, Mama Kelly, Bar Alt, Zuid, Mr. Sam, Cinq, Het Amsterdams Proeflokaal and Wils, the renovation of the area around the Olympic Stadium is finally complete.


Chefs Joris Bijdendijk, Erwin Oudijk and Friso van Amerongen have found a home in the former Citroën garage to make their dreams come true. A place where cooking goes back to basics; fire. Restaurant Wils is a fire place where all dishes are prepared on fire according to the pillars of pure, unique, quality and simplicity. The chefs cook refined dishes from the open kitchen and bake fresh bread daily in the bakery. On the regularly changing menu you will find seasonal products. And the bar is set high. After a Michelin star for his cooking at Restaurant Rijks, Bijdendijk wants this level on the plates at Wils as well.


The name Wils comes from Jan Wils, the architect of the Olympic Stadium. For the 1928 games, he designed the iconic stadium. In the years following the Olympics, the stadium was home to legendary matches of Ajax and the Dutch national team.

Restaurant Wils can be found at the back of Move, an interactive experience all about mobility. In Move find the car and bike of the future. And discover how we will move around the city in the future.
