Before jetting to Amsterdam, we had clocked Waaghals as a restaurant to visit. We didn't have a reservation, there were few seats to choose from and liked the casual and warm ambience of the restaurant. We both had the three course dinner for 30€, plus...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
