Great little restaurant with friendly staff and great dishes. I have been several times and the dishes are like taken from a culinary show - the look great and taste amazing and interesting.

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.

This is probably one of the best vegetarian restaurants i have visited any where. We found it quite by chance around the corner from a hotel we had been put in because of double booking. What a lucky disaster! The food was excellent. The staff...More

We were recommended to this vegetarian restaurant by the Hotel Fita (it is run by the brother of the owner) and, although none of us are vegetarians, we were hugely impressed by the exceptional quality of the food. The restaurant itself is small, friendly and...More

De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag
through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp
Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s
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
and a good number of them are students. Here you'll

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
