Delightful

Finding decent vegetarian restaurants can often be difficult when visiting a foreign city. This one (Waaghals) was recommended to us and we were delighted. I am vegan and had no trouble finding a good selection. Food was superb. Service excellent. Ambience could be better but hey.

We had a great meal, very tasty. I am not a vegetarian but enjoyed trying something new, and my girlfriend (who's a veggie) was very excited to finally have an entire menu to pick from. Friendly staff, quick service, great quality. My only complaints are that it's slightly overpriced (30 euros p.p.) and it's only open around 4 hours a... More

I enjoyed the vegetarian food! It was more than average but less than excellent. Great for a light dinner if you are not extremely hungry. Calm neighborhood, also worth a visit.

I've been in this restaurant on a Saturday and it was busy but the food was really poor not tasty and just reminded me of microwave meal! I'm sure there are better restaurants in Amsterdam so don't waste your time here!

This restaurant is a delight and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It is family run and the staff are lovely and most importantly the food is delicious and prices reasonable. Book ahead to avoid being disappointed - 0031 20 679 9609. It is situated in a local neighbourhood and easily walkable from tram stops 16 and 24. Give it... More

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.
