Tasty food

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.

This was a delightful find, lovely food, great house wine, pleasant service and a total vegetarian menu, no looking for 'v' amongst a plethora of non vegetarian offers. Quiet location but restaurant busy, an excellent combination. Will return. We all selected prix fixe but two members of our party advised not to as their choices would cost less a la... More

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!
