The restaurant was in a peaceful location and we sat outside in a quiet road enjoying the ambience of the street. They allowed us to eat earlier than the restaurant officially opened which was accommodating of them. We had a very tasty local dark Dutch beer. The waiter was a bit edgy, not overly friendly or helpful and the service... More

You have to make a reservation in advance since it is very popular. The food is great with good flavors and feels fresh. I even think that people that are skeptical to vegetarian food will at least find it interesting. So it is a great place to go to if you want good vegetarian food but your partner is not... More

This restaurant was a perfect place for our hen party. We were a table of 12 and although we had a fairly limited choice ( due to our numbers) the food was fantastic . Even the non veggies enjoyed their meals and the puddings were to die for. Not knowing where to go for a vegetarian meal in Amsterdam we... More

Simple menu with interesting combinations of food in the one main course. However, the combinations work and the portions are big. Really good flavours of freshly made food.

We were staying in a lovely hotel near the Rijksmuseum and this restaurant was a short walk from the hotel. It was necessary to book it, as it was full up on the first night that we tried. I am not surprised why after eating there. The food is great. The atmosphere was also nice. Not super formal, but not... More

We went a while ago during a really really cold month of April. Place is really nice and the ambience perfect for a romantic dinner. The place is vegetarian so menu was really great. All the dishes were excellent and really tasty. But for me the best dish was dessert. Some banana cream pie with ice cream. A must if... More

We sought this restaurant out as we always like to find good veggie restaurants when abroad. We weren't disappointed at all. A lovely restaurant with friendly, attentive staff and above all gorgeous food. We had three courses; I had a starter of fennel soup and my fiance had chick pea fritters, both were very tasty, particularly the soup; for mains... More

I sat outside De Waaghels on a warm summer evening in this quiet district with several restaurants and cafés. It's modern cuisine carefully prepared and served in a friendly casual style. Something different to try and a welcome relief to the hubbub of Amsterdam centre.

We've eaten here several times over the past few years, having been introduced to it by our daughter who studied in the city. This is a pretty, homey, authentically Dutch dinner spot in a lovely area, with a regular local following. Yes, the menu is limited to their seasonal choices, but there is still plenty of delicious variety. We brought... More

This felt more like a cafe than a restaurant, BUT the vegetarian food was good, imaginative and varied, and the service friendly and swift. You wouldn't want to spend a whole evening here, but we spent an enjoyable hour.Very happy to recommend the Stamppot and Waaghals Classic. Some interesting beer too.
