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.

... 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.

Having had the foresight to book a table before leaving England, we rolled up at 7:00pm on a Sunday evening and were shown to our table in an otherwise packed restaurant. Menus arrived in English (Dutch versions of course are available). Atmosphere was buzzy with attentive staff. We had our two 'picky' teenagers with us, but even they managed to... More

Went here during our stay in Amsterdam. The menu had a great selection and it seemed to be seasonal/rotating. Though the food was great, the only negative for us was the awkward and slow service. Other than that, we would definitely go back here when we next visit!
