This place has a big menu for people who would like to have a lot of vegetarian or vegan options, but if you are really keen on eating meat: no worries. you can do that here as well. Avarage price for a meal is about 15 euros.

The food was wonderful! Lots of fresh vegetables and nice spices, potatoes/fries/rice aside, I ordered the rice, was also delicious. Very cozy place, good atmosphere, friendly people. Oh and Vegan-friendly!

A gezellig place that serves great vegetarian food which carnivores will like as well as good steaks. Look out for the vegetable pie and the kaasgehakt (cheese balls).

After a while we remembered... the place was often completely full when we... More

Nice atmosphere and retro look. Easy going staff and menu. Unfortunately some dishes we'd selected were finished. The bread was finished as we got some old sliced bread and buns, yet is costs 4 euro. Nice cheese ball.

not a bad place at all, dished are not as much overpriced as anywhere else in the Netherlands, good tasty food and relatively quick service. I would easily give this place four stars but... there is very little space. The tables are incredibly close to each other, you are deprived of any personal space at all, feels a bit like... More

For vegetarians this place is a must-visit. Very cheap food, 3 choices in the menu, change per day. Make sure you reserve as this place is quite popular.
