They put together interesting combinations of vegetarian food with great taste. And the setting is airy, low-key and pleasant.

My sisters and I chose this restaurant for our special night out. We had all been here before and had good experiences. However, this visit was a disappointment. Granted, the food is good (we ordered 2-3 course meals plus prosecco and a bottle of wine),...More

The renovation is nice and the food is still great!! We will be back again. Service is typical Dutch laid back, but they're attentive as needed.

This is a vegetarian restaurant that I have visited before. Excellent meal with leisurely but friendly service, good and varied beers and wines and a cat! There are few frills but who needs them? What's not to like?

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
