Cozy atmosphere and vegan food

The atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. We had an amazing miso soup and then we had the main dish of the day that was a mixture of different foods.I loved the seitan and veggie skewer while the natto and brown rice was a bit too covered in sauces. In general I would recommend it!

The interior of the restaurant is nice and has a kind of modern-oldstyle look. I was there on a saturday around 12.30pm with a friend and we ordered a macrobiotic plate, which was full of different kinds of vegetables, sweet rice, red beans, etc. . For the menu there was also a delicious soup served, which was a beans soup... More

Too much fried food and everything is way over priced. It's simply not good value and it's possible to get same or better quality elsewhere for much cheaper.

Deshima serves vegetarian fare and prides on serving macrobiotic food. You'll get dishes including brown rice and seaweed and tofu (and all sorts of healthy items) on the buffet. The buffet is some what pricey, but the restaurant is worth being visited. Of course, one can visit the nearby museums after having a bite here.

I really enjoyed eating at Deshima, nice people, simple but cosy place and tasty macrobiotic food, though buffet is slightly overpriced for me, I suppose it's because all ingredients are organic. If you are macrobiotic this is the place to go in Amsterdam, will cover all your needs: whole grain rice, miso soup, bancha, vegetable tempura, salad, macrobiotic cakes.... I... More

The food here is really tasty and I had a big choice of different vegetarian dishes at the buffet. Here you can get a really good macrobiotic plate (e.g. with pickles, seaweed, pressed salad, brown rice, tofu or beans, miso soup, vegetable dishes). The price is reasonable as the ingredients are all organic. The interior is a bit old-style and... More

If you are into your supper healthy food this the place for you. All food is freshly made on site and there is a mini-market downstairs. Location is a stones throw from the Rijksmuseum.

I've eaten at Deshima many many times, the food was always very good and I really love their desserts! Downstairs they also have a shop where you can find some very good quality organic products, it's my favorite place to buy brown rice, mustard, natto, umeboshi vinegar, mirin and lots of different kinds of oils! My only remarks is that... More
