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.
Cons: can be busy; reservation needed, warm in summer, a bit cold in winter
