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.

We arrived having booked but the waiter seemed to find us fairly inconvenient at best. We waited for 15 minutes and then asked if we might order a drink. It seemed like the bloke had something personal against us - but no he treated other clients with the same distain. On the other hand the food was truly delicious andif... More

I am a hard core vegetarian for the past 4 years now, and experience has taught me to be wary of most 'vegetarian' restaurants in the west. I have MUCH better luck eating at 'regular' restaurants that serve some dishes that happen to be vegetarian, especially Italian and Middle Eastern restaurants. But after reading some of the reviews of De... More

Frist, let me say that it wasn't that the staff were unwilling, quite the contrary, they were very helpful, efficient and attentive but the place was very busy when we were there and so they were a bit stretched. The restaurant itself is a bit tired and run down. The menu is limited but the food is good, trying to... More

We found the restuarant to be very clean, the food very tasty, and the service very friendly. What more can one ask for with dinner and beverages for 2 for under 50 Euro and end up with a big amount of salad for take-away in Amsterdam? Mind the cat though, he's lovely but a tad grumpy about strangers continually trying... More

Went impromptuly, later in the evening and had a delicious vegetarian meal at this vegetarian restaurant. Quite a limited choice in the menu, but it all looked tasty, but we felt it was slightly on the expensive side, at least by New Zealand standards. However what we received was delicious. We stuck to only one course. The food was fresh... More

Good food, original vegetarian dishes. Special. Atmosphere is good. Mediocre service, waiter seems lazy and uninterested. Maybe its part of the vibe of the place

Even my nonvegetarian companion agreed this was the best place we ate in Amsterdam. There's nothing crunchy, granoly about this. Meals are beautifully conceived and cooked, ingrediants are fresh, wine, beer and coffee all available and good. I had the monthly special (a mix of Egypian-spiced dishes) and my partner the summer special -- both were interesting and delicious. Small... More
