Molen De Dikkert is a defunct restaurant located in a windmill in Amstelveen, in the Netherlands. It was a fine dining restaurant that was awarded one Michelin star in 1983 and retained that rating until 1992.[2][3][4][5][6]

Restaurant De Dikkert went bankrupt in 1992.[7] During the bankruptcy settlement, the restaurant, owned by Bob Goudsmit, was sold to Yen Ho Kai, who kept the restaurant running.[7][8]

Arjan van Dijk was head chef in the time of the Michelin stars.[9]

At present, the windmill houses restaurant De Jonge Dikkert, that is awarded a Bib Gourmand, since 1994.[10][11]

Restaurant Molen De Dikkert was housed in a former windmill. The windmill was originally built in 1672 in Zaandam, as a sawmill. In 1896, the mill was moved to Amstelveen and served there as a flour mill. In 1929, the windmill stopped its working life and slowly fell into disrepair. The mill got renovated in 1965 and was ready for action again in 1966.[12]
