vegetarian restaurant near Museumplein

A medium-sized vegetarian restaurant that is vegan-friendly. The menu is more extensive than the one of their website. Each month a different country's cuisine is featured, although it is typically a somewhat Dutch-ized take on it. Beyond that a number of specials and regular dishes are available. Located conveniently near the Rijksmuseum in south-central Amsterdam. It can be a good idea to make reservations.

It was great to finally find some vegan food in Amsterdam that wasn't fried. The food was a bit pricey, but tasted really great and the atmosphere was pleasant. De Waaghals is a vegetarian restaurant, but there were a few tasty vegan options that were clearly marked on the menu.

Really nice place, original veg. food but not 'that' tasty, adorable people, service is slow (seems a couple of people manage all orders themselves), plates are really well presented.
Overall, lovely experience, but too pricey for what it is, bad value for money.

And yes, this adorable cat hanging around with no sense of worry whatsoever, gives a special atmosphere of peace and calm, as are the staff.
Unfortunately, not worth 50 euros for 2.

Oud Zuid


From Leidseplein, turn and walk along Weteringschans toward the Rijksmuseum. Walk past the museum and continue to the roundabout. Turn right and cross the water. The Heineken building will be to your left. Immediately turn right on the street parallel to the water (Stadhouderskade). Take the first left and it will be about one block down on your left.
