cosy atmosphere, high-quality food, creative kitchen - go veggie!

Veggie food as a non-vegetarian? In De Waaghals you can easily go for it, it is an experience! Fresh food, intensive taste, all the different tastes nicely adding up to a recommendable food experience! Waaghals Menue is a nice pick, I can recommend to close the dinner with the Waaghals Coffee ;-)

As a vegetarian this food was average tasting, some dishes were a little bland and portions were small given the price. Service was very friendly and honest and the restaurant itself was cosy. Didn't find it as good as the reviews by others below.

It was hard to know which dish to order,it all sounded delicious but in the end I opted for a lentil curry with a tempeh,hazelnut and apricot burger(fantastic).My friend who is a carnivore ordered a cauliflour dish which he also thoroughly enjoyed.Would definitely pay this restaurant a second visit when next in this city.

The food was delicious and the atmosphere delightful. The place is small, so it doesn't feel overcrowded. The prices are acceptable.

This was a great find. If you are vegetarian/vegan, this is the place for the best dinner. A beautifully presented dinner, made with top quality ingredients, and served by a friendly staff. The restaurant is small and cozy, not especially atmospheric, but okay. The staff was extremely friendly (as we found most of the Dutch to be). To get there... More

It is rare to find a very good vegetarian restaurant serving freshly prepared food from an interesting menu in portions to satisfy. We had an excellent meal here in rather unpretentious surroundings. The staff are young but competent.

Best veggie restaurant I have been to in ages. Nice cafe style ambience, small number of choices which reflects the freshness and preparation of the food. Large satisfying portions and good wine.

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
