Amsterdam has a growing selection of restaurants and cafes with adapted facilities. All of the places listed below have a wheelchair-accessible toilet with support beams.

I have also created a Google Maps link with over 80 restaurants in in Amsterdam with wheelchair-friendly toilets. I have yet to visit the places marked in purple, but have spoken to a restaurant representative of each location and confirmed they have an accessible toilet with grab rails. Click here to view the map.
