I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to find this gem! We wandered in on Christmas Eve and were greeted by the sweetest man who turned out to be our chef as well. We ordered an excellent bottle of organic wine and our host was so helpful and knowledgeable. We had a fantastic meal that was delicious and the plate was full of yummy side dishes as well. It was a cozy and friendly place on a freezing holiday. When we inquired about dinner on Christmas, our kind chef told us he was preparing a special menu. Needless to say, we got back there for a fantastic Christmas dinner and another great bottle of wine. For sure when we return to Amsterdam we will head straight to this place for the best veg meal anywhere. Unpretentious and home-made everything was a tasty treat. Can't say enough about how nice the chef was--supercool dude and great food. It was two memorable meals over Christmas that made our stay in Amsterdam even more perfect. Thank you Flying Saucer!! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu--talk it over with the chef and he'll hook you up with all the stuff you love to eat!

We stopped by here to load up on food supplies for our travels. The place was great because it had lots of organic nuts and foods in bulk, great tasty pastries at the register, and generally everything one would need to be self sufficient in the city. Best place we found for organic, vegetarian, and raw foodists--truly delicious!

We were fortunate to find this great place on our walk from Gare de Lyon to Gare du Nord train stations--it was right along the main street and open! After walking through the snow it was so cozy and inviting. The woman behind the counter was very friendly and had good suggestions for our meal. The food was delicious and filled our stomachs and warmed our hearts. The service was also excellent and we had some nice conversations with the staff who were pleased to feed us. Great experience and the perfect meal.
