“Delicious Vegan Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

The food is really good if you're looking for vegan/vegetarian food. I had the vegan platter of the day with pumpkin rice, beans & avocado, coconut tofu, etc. My friend had the enchiladas and my other friend had a blue cheese lasagna. Portions are big - I couldn't finish it all. The atmosphere is sweet and the two elderly owners run the restaurant. I definitely recommend this restaurant, but I don't recommend their desserts. I have had great vegan desserts in the past, and the three I tried here were pretty horrible. The brownie and cookie tasted like cardboard and their non-vegan banana pudding was mediocre. Definitely check it out, but have dessert elsewhere.

“Excellent Veggie Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

'The Bowler Hat', on Prinsengracht in the Jordaan, is a great place for vegetarians and vegans in the centre of Amsterdam or anyone who fancies wholesome, organic food. Beautifully situated right on the canal it is cosy in Autumn and Winter and has a small amount of outdoor seating in warmer weather.
The food comes in good portion sizes and on this occasion we opted for a lunchtime visit and left completely full up! Vegan options are clearly marked. The restaurant is licensed and has a good selection of beers and wine.
Best to book in the evenings.

“Awful, awful service!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

Very dirty restaurant. You can tell by looking at the floors and the stacks of dishes. The staff hacked and coughed into their hands whilst serving food and wine to customers. Staff also was eating while cooking and blowing their noses whilst preparing the food. My father and I were treated very rudely. I walked into this place hoping to finally have a home cooked vegan meal in Amsterdam. There were no tables. We were given a card to leave and call back in order to check if a table freed up in 30 min. Instead we patiently waited for a table to open up. 2 did, we asked for one and all of a sudden it had a reservation. The next freed up table had a reservation but it was an 8 o'clock which was already 30 min late (which is the restaurants allowance before passing on the table). But people were already sitting there past the reservation time of someone else so that didnt make sense.

“Good Vegetarian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

This is not a "posh" place, but is a nice characterful cafe. The food was excellent and reasonably priced with a wide and interesting selection of vegetarian and vegan food.

“simple and fresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

The location is really good which is in Jordaan. It is cosy. Service is quick. I thought the food was too little when i saw the plate but i felt completely full when i finished. It was a really delicious fresh food. And it was so nicely decorated. My stomach felt really good the whole night. The music was also so cheerful. So i left the place with satisfaction and happiness. Thanks..
