We've never had an explosion of taste and texture like the organic, locally-sourced, vegetarian cuisine at de Waaghals. The owner-chefs delight in creating truly original dishes that do not mimic meat dishes (so no veggie burgers) that satisfy the eye and the palate as well...More

Good vegan/vegetarian food. Tasty and good wine. Only thing was missing was some nice sides. (They didnt have sides like salad or fries?)

We came here with high hopes from reviews and wanted to experience this neighborhood (which we thought was lovely). However, the dinner experience was aweful. The waitstaff seemed very blaise. We shared an appetizer of carrots with a lovely sauce and lentils and it was...More

We had the menu for €30 with starter, main and desert. All dishes looked amazing and the taste was really great! The portions were more than enough. I am not a vegetarian myself but I did not miss the meat or fish at all! Service...More

Nice cozy place with decent vegetarian food. The variety is limited with preset main courses so would recommend you check the menu once before you go. If you are looking for variety, won’t recommend going here.

Went for dinner with my wife. Tried a few different starters, the same main and different desserts. Everything was well prepared and tasty. Service was really good, friendly and professional. Nice location.

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

De WAAGHALS (= The Dare-devil) is an attractive vegetarian restaurant. The atmosphere is informal, but the food is refined and creative. Organic ingredients are used as much as possible. Each month a dish focuses on a different country. Our menu changes twice a month. There is a large selection of drinks available, from various sorts of tea and fruit juices to different kinds of beer (including locally brewed ones) and organic wines. The interior is very comfortable and on nice summer evenings you can dine outside. De WAAGHALS is very popular with a growing number of non-vegetarians. It is advisable to book in advance
