Great place

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.

Straightforward waiter, cosy restaurant and god vegetarian food. Make sure to reserve seats on Friday night, as the restaurant was packed!

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.

... but this one should, and deserves a higher rating than it has on trip adviser. We'd done a bit of research before we got to Amsterdam and had a reservation for 7.30 on a Friday evening and were glad we had as the restaurant was otherwise packed. Despite that, the service throughout was friendly, laid back and very efficient.... More

We had a three course meal and every course was delicious. The loveliest vegetarian food I have eaten for a long time. The main course consisted of unusual combinations which worked really well.The service was excellent too. Really friendly, attentive staff. Before leaving I asked if they would open a branch in the UK.
