From orange juice to cocktail

At Amsterdam Tropen Hotel it is not just the rooms that come with a view, the breakfast does too. We serve fresh orange juice, fried eggs and pancakes practically inside the Oosterpark. And that is just the start. The east of the capital – or Amsterdam-Oost as we refer to it – is filled with trendy lunch cafes, gourmet restaurants and cool cocktail bars. Since it is not always easy to choose and there are only so many meals in a day, we gladly give you a few tips on where to go. So feel free to stop at reception as they know the area well and are more than happy to help you choose the best places. Whether you prefer fish, meat or vegetarian fare.


To remain in tropical surroundings, we suggest Grand Cafe De Tropen, which is right next door. It boasts a covered and heated terrace bordering our own green courtyard. A bit further down the street is Bar Louie Louie, a hotspot for lunch, dinner or drinks. Wilde Zwijnen on Javaplein is double the joy with two restaurants under one roof: one offering Dutch cuisine and the other being a Spanish-French tapas bar. Another great option is the Beukenplein, which is a nice walk through the Oosterpark. The square is filled with cafes and restaurants making it especially great in summer when it is bustling with people enjoying food and drink. Bon appetit and cheers!
