European menu with a French touch

Serving our guests delicious food and exceeding their expectations, that is our motive. Publiek is made possible by a small team of enthusiastic people with a common background in the luxurious restaurant industry. Founder Ben Plassard lets his French roots speak through the atmospheric, welcoming café-bistro setting he has created. At Publiek the pleasure of cooking in a French bistro meets the cosiness of an Amsterdam café.


Our team loves to serve our guests beautiful wine and food pairings. We use only the best and often organic products for our dishes. Everything that leaves our kitchen is super fresh and homemade; from our focaccia to our ice cream. The European menu with French influences changes seasonally to work with seasonal products as much as possible. Publiek is for everyone. Hospitality is extremely important to us. Therefore, in addition to meat and fish dishes, we also serve vegetarian and vegan options.

Extraordinary wine and food pairings

Our wines are absolute gems and selected with the help of Remi, Ben’s father. Remi lives in the South of France where he has worked as an acclaimed wine merchant for the last fifteen years. He always succeeds in finding and distributing high-quality wines. We are very proud that we can offer these delicious, exclusive wines in Amsterdam!
