Vegetarian delight!

Sad to learn that the friendly resident cat was absent on our visit but that didn't spoil our enjoyment. The staff were attentive and the food very tasty and good value. I would definitely recommend a trip to other vegetarians visiting Amsterdam!

The food all tasted the same from starter to main course. They tried an indian, asian taste... And I think they overdid it... Nothing special as I expected. Nor in the taste nor in the presentation... I have had better food for less money... Most of the options have dairy. Service not good.

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor whilst in Amsterdam and visited one very cold, wet night in January 2015. I'm not a vegetarian but my girlfriend is, however I felt well catered for and impressed by the menu selection. Our meals were delicious and beautifully presented. The waiter made us feel at home and was happy to speak to us in... More

Nice interior, quiet atmosphere without music, fantastic vegetarian food, great beer, pleasant staff, and a resident cat! Brilliant place, a very lucky find as it just happened to be nearest to our hotel.

A great find. Proper vegetarian food, with lots of flavour and colour. The interior is quirky and comfortable, with friendly staff and excellent service. Would highly recommend- even vegans can be catered for!

This place is great! The atmosphere is calm and in a good way - laid back. I didn't struggle to get a table (although I did eat earlyish and it was getting a little busier as I left).The owners were very friendly and accommodating, their cat even wanders the place (which I loved)! I had the Waaghals classic, it was... More

First of all, we made a reservation several weeks in advance, which was very helpful. Our family was kind of tired of eating vegetarian, so perhaps this wasn't good from the start. However, it seemed chaotic in trying to order and get the owner's attention. To be fair, it was the first day they reopened after vacation, but it was... More

Main dishes all feature a number of different items together, covering a very wide range. Service was a bit on the slow side.

I really liked the venue, from the outside you really do not expect to discover a restaurant standing on this square but it is! The staff is really nice and friendly the food is OK not gourmet but good and the venue inside is really pleasant. The kind of place where you relax and have a good time with friends.
