Description: 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

Frist, let me say that it wasn't that the staff were unwilling, quite the contrary, they were very helpful, efficient and attentive but the place was very busy when we were there and so they were a bit stretched. The restaurant itself is a bit tired and run down. The menu is limited but the food is good, trying to be inovative but hampered by poor presentation and perhaps too big portions? What we ate was OK but I would not go there again, and it should not be touted as one of the 6 best restaurants in Amsterdam.

We found the restuarant to be very clean, the food very tasty, and the service very friendly. What more can one ask for with dinner and beverages for 2 for under 50 Euro and end up with a big amount of salad for take-away in Amsterdam?
Mind the cat though, he's lovely but a tad grumpy about strangers continually trying to pet him (LOL)
I would certianly return.

Went impromptuly, later in the evening and had a delicious vegetarian meal at this vegetarian restaurant. Quite a limited choice in the menu, but it all looked tasty, but we felt it was slightly on the expensive side, at least by New Zealand standards. However what we received was delicious. We stuck to only one course. The food was fresh and beautifully cooked.

Good food, original vegetarian dishes. Special. Atmosphere is good. Mediocre service, waiter seems lazy and uninterested. Maybe its part of the vibe of the place

Even my nonvegetarian companion agreed this was the best place we ate in Amsterdam. There's nothing crunchy, granoly about this. Meals are beautifully conceived and cooked, ingrediants are fresh, wine, beer and coffee all available and good. I had the monthly special (a mix of Egypian-spiced dishes) and my partner the summer special -- both were interesting and delicious.

Small but comfortable restaurant with a few tables on a tree-lined street. Area is primarily residential, but a few other restaurants and shops give it a welcoming feel. Had a lovey chat with the maitre d/waiter about the place and area.
