Fancy a tasty taco night? During Taco Tuesday, you can order tacos with a cocktail for just over €20 at Madre. Everything on the menu at this lovely hotspot in the Jordaan is vegan. They have a nice bar up front where they serve great cocktails. The restaurant itself boasts an impressive interior! There’s often a DJ spinning tunes or live music. Be sure to order the guacamole, as it’s made tableside and is incredibly delicious.

More vegan hotspots in amsterdam to discover


NEXT at the NDSM-wharf is the latest addition from the team behind PLLEK. You could see it as the bigger, slightly more mature, yet still rebellious and unclassifiable brother. They are open seven days a week from 9:30 am, so it’s also a great spot for breakfast. But perhaps it’s even more the kind of place you go to for a drink at the end of the afternoon. Then, you find yourself not wanting to leave. You linger for dinner (or even better, the chef’s menu, much of which is vegan). And even after dinner, NEXT is the place to be, as the cocktail bar is where you go for one more cocktail and to turn it into an (unplanned) party.
NDSM-Kade 2, Amsterdam –

Great news for all the parents out there, as its spacious layout makes it a fantastic place to bring kids along. Open from breakfast until late, the restaurant always surprises you. They lead the way in sustainability, so it’s no surprise that vegans and vegetarians are well catered for here! Let’s face it… when isn’t Pllek in North a favourite at any time of day? There are plenty of vegan options on the menu, making it perfect for a mixed date with friends who haven’t seen the vegan light yet.
