”Taste the sun in the heart of the city”

By Masterchef Justin Niessen 

Bon bini na Mondi!

Here you can enjoy shared soul food in which Caribbean cuisine and culture is central.


Masterchef Justin Niessen brings his culinary successes to the capital. By combining his Curaçao roots with the influences of the Amsterdam melting pot, he provides a surprising menu: Caribbean Soul food with a French twist and an edge of Mokum’s bravado. In addition, you can start your weekend off right by enjoying our resident DJ’s on Friday & Saturday evening’s. Dive in and taste the sun!

Mondi (Papiamentu) is known in the Leeward Islands as an unexplored, free wilderness. The Mondi is characterized as a bushy area with plants such as aloe vera, agave and the dividivi tree. For us, Mondi stands for the undiscovered and the freedom to try new things and bring the Caribbean flavors to the Netherlands.


You taste the sun in the heart of city

The Caribbean cuisine is characterized by the many influences from all over the world. African, Indian, Asian and European. To this tasty diversity Justin adds French sophistication and metropolitan delights. What emerges is a whole new experience: a Caribbean-inspired fusion cuisine. Where Caribbean dishes are translated into the fusion of Mondi and western dishes are given a tropical touch. You can enjoy chicken jerk or innovative recipes such as mussels in coconut. Everything prepared in the unique Mondi way. You can taste it all, because shared dining means mixing, discovering flavors and sharing together. Mondi’s bites are surprisingly pleasant like a windward breeze.


Tropical design

At Mondi you can enjoy the best the Caribbean has to offer. The experience goes beyond your plate and the decoration also breathes the warmth of the Caribbean wave. Interior designer Martijn de Goede has translated the atmosphere of Mondi into the natural tones that are interspersed with lavish design panels with botanical prints. Art from the islands adorns the walls and large exotic plants and palms complete the special tropical feeling. Through collaborations with Caribbean and Dutch artists, art is given a central place and creativity is paramount.

The College Hotel

The College is located in the heart of Amsterdam's museum quarter.


A boutique hotel, housed in one of the most beautiful national monuments in the city. In this 19th-century school building, travellers, urbanites and artists meet in an inspiring and creative environment. The bar of The College Hotel also functions as an art gallery and it is a stage for young Amsterdam talents.

Together with Mondi, The College Hotel offers you a complete experience. After a tropical appetizer on the terrace, you take a seat in the botanical atmosphere of the restaurant. Afterwards, you can relax with a cocktail at the bar or in the courtyard. We are not in a rush to get home: you can spend the night comfortably in one of the 40 luxurious rooms. This is how The College Hotel and Mondi bring the relaxed Caribbean vibe to Amsterdam.

With the opening of Mondi in the summer of 2021, the capital has gained a unique culinary hotspot. The fantastic location, the iconic 4* boutique hotel The College, makes an evening out for dinner extra special. The atmospheric hotel bar is the perfect place for an aperitif before a nice meal. When the weather is nice, the beautiful outdoor bar on the most beautiful terrace in Amsterdam is the place to be. And even after a ‘Caribbean night’ in restaurant Mondi you can lounge on the terrace or in the bar until late in the evening. Even more fun: add a nice overnight stay in one of the 40 stylishly furnished rooms of The College Hotel. Each room of this historic school building is unique and furnished with care. This turns a night out into pure indulgence!
