Most beautiful veggie restaurant I know

Posted on 02 / 26 / 2013

Het Paradijs is a unique vegetarian restaurant in The Netherlands: it is a complete mystery to me how they have been able to build this place, considering the strict legislation for restaurants and other public places here. It was built in an old workshop/factory by an artist who had the intention of creating his own paradise: what he imagined a lovely restaurant should look like. It is beautifully decorated with mosaics, all kinds of buddhas and icons, small enclosed nooks and corners, various levels, a wooden walkway up in the air, a small outside terrace, re-used building materials etc. etc. It nevertheless has all the necessary permits, and the result is a perfect vegetarian restaurant for a wonderful night out. The staff are very friendly and helpfull and even on a busy night they try to fulfill your special wishes. It is simply a lovely place: a true paradise for vegetarians and art lovers alike.

Pros: beautiful decor, friendly staff, very good food, mostly organic & local
Cons: can be busy; reservation needed, warm in summer, a bit cold in winter

A must see place

Het Paradijs was intended as a work of art joined with nature and it still is. The food is allways fine - and usually better than vegetarian dishes in most restaurants in Enschede, but the true attraction really is the place itself.

Pros: Interior decoration
Cons: Sometimes noisy

Truly unique

Het Paradijs is a restaurant like no other. The huge venue is a work of art with many plants, imagery from many religions, ponds with turtles and overhead wooden walkways. Very peaceful. They can accommodate large groups, but it's always easy to find a quiet corner somewhere.

Pros: unique, beautiful location, tasty, all vegetarian food, friendly staff
Cons: mostly by reservation, mostly for large groups (check schedule), vegan-friendly only on advance notice
