I've been a vegetarian for 44 years.. since birth.. However, eating vegetarian food is often a chor or second rate (in the view of most meat eaters).. This place however, is sublime. A fantastic menu with the right amount of options. They have the amount...More

Tasty unusual dishes using lots of fresh ingredients and a nice cosy atmosphere. Friendly pleasant staff too. Glad we booked last minute as it got busy even in the mid week.

We've visited De Waaghals a few times over the years but our recent visit on Friday evening fell a bit flat. It was not as good as we remembered. The food was average at best. No wow factor and quite small portions - so we...More

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
