Mediterranean in Nieuwmarkt, Plantage & the Eastern Islands

Frenzi has lots of atmosphere (scrubbed wood tables, lit with candles) and serves delicious Italian tapas – Manchego cheese and fig compote; marinated sardines; portobello mushrooms with melted Gorgonzola – but save room for mains like pan-fried cod with fennel mash, pumpkin gnocchi with wilted spinach, and leg of lamb with roast asparagus.

It stocks 110 types of grappa.
