Het Eilandje is a hip neighborhood where there is always something going on. Restaurant and coffee bar owners are also discovering this every day. On this page I try to keep a list of restaurants, coffee bars and places where you can get other delicacies. If you have a suggestion or comment, feel free to forward them.


‘t Zilte

Michelinstars with a view
The restaurant on the top floor with chef Vicky Geunes has two Michelin stars. The view is also breathtaking, with views of the city and harbor. Nice detail: Vicky Geunes is self-taught and studied as an industrial scientist.
Hanzestedenplaats 5

Ellis Gourmet Burger


The name refers to Ellis Island in New York where European immigrants entered America. A nice reference in this area because of the Red Star Line Museum, where around two million Europeans left for America.

The Shack

Bagels and coffee

The owner has lived in America and Brazil, so she wanted to pass on the love for the bagel and coffee.
