“Great place, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Really enjoyed the setting with all of its products, but of course most of all the food was superb. Great quality ingredients, nice portions and wow... fantastic desserts! Definitely worth it. Only thing is that service is limited to the owner of the place, so attention to drinks for instance is not optimal.

“Vegetarian Finesse and elegance.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Best vegetarian food I've ever eaten! Absolute top quality, very refined and great service. Not a budget restaurant (expect 40 euros per person), for me personally was completely worth it. Better make a reservation.

“Splendid taste, vegetarian dance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This restaurant is really the best quality of food, wine, herbs, ingredients! The owner and his wife are only interested in the best quality of ingredients. Every different meal, they have a story about the place they found it, the producer (France, England ........) . The love and mission of every person who's involved for the endresult on my plate, is recognizable. Please make a call or email them, because often every table is reserved!

“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I were really impressed with the food and service here. The tasting plates worked really well, the food was fresh and mostly organic. Excellent service. Will be recommending Betty's to any friends visiting Amsterdam - whether vegetarian or not!

“Vegetarians - there's still hope in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I have been a vegetarian for three decades. And much as I love living in Amsterdam for all kinds of reasons, eating out is not one of them. The service is quite often terrible. And if you say you're vegetarian, they recommend fish and chicken!

So to go to a restaurant which is vegetarian and not boring is quite a treat. The charming owner does not use eggs and can also make a pure vegan meal on request.

Betty's is a modest looking place set in the heart of the Pijp area. It is run by one gentleman who is very proud of his cooking and the ingredients he uses. His spices are all from Olivier Roellinger. (they are for sale too) He has the same concept as de Kas - food made from the fresh ingredients - menu changed every week. The starter is followed by an assortment of mains - a whole bunch of little tasty bites. The desserts are particularly brilliant.

He has a good selection of wines too.

To watch him describe his food is fun - he is so enthusiastic about it all, his eyes gleam when he starts speaking!
