“The meat is excellent in this restaurant, located on the ever-pleasant Javaplein. Vegetarians don't be afraid: as the name suggests, fortunately fish and vegetarian dishes can also be ordered here. ”

Indie Cinema
“It’s my favourite spot to catch the sun and have a coffee with apple pie. But they also have great food and you can watch a movie. The funny side of this place, all workers earn the same from managers to waiters. For me it’s heaven to grab a coffee in the morning sun and watch people and daily life.”

“A still undiscovered gem of Amsterdam East. This old Dutch gin distillery, built around 1800 is hidden in the Flevopark. The owners produce around a hundred gins and liqueurs of their own, which you can taste in the Proeverij. You can sip a strawberry or apple gin on the small terrace overlooking the water. The place opens 3 till 8 PM, closed on mondays. The Flevopark itself is a pleasant park: you can swim in the large lake 'Het Nieuwe Diep', and get lost in the trees and wildflowers in the many small wood-gathered paths. ”
