Many vegan options

Cozy restaurant, friendly staff and quite a lot vegan options. The bread with spreads was not very special but the vegan salad on the other hand was really tasty and made up very pretty.

Pros: Many vegan options, tasteful, cozy

Great vegan lunches and snacks

I often come here to work on my laptop. Perfect place for that, and to enjoy vegan lunches on snacks during. 🤤 Their vegan bitterballen and kroketten and amazing, tastes just like any other bitterbal or kroket. I would alsof recommend the rose lemonade. Looks really fancy, tastes great.

Would give 5 stars if possible!

Pros: Best vegan bitterballen I have had, Good flexwork spots

Best vegan lunch at this time

A combi lunch menu with soup, avocado on toast and a kroket on bread with mustard, just sublime!

Great place for a drink and a quick meal

The 'Het Gegeven Paard' bar is part of the TivoliVredenburg concert venue and is a great place to study, work, have a drink with friends or a quick meal before visiting a concert. They offer simple but good quality meals and snacks (meat, vegetarian and vegan, but more and more vegan options are added lately). Always wanted to try the famous Dutch 'bitterbal'? At 'Het Gegeven Paard' you can try the delicious vegan bitterbal, that really tastes like the real thing. The place has a great atmosphere but can be crowdy, especially when there are multiple concerts at the same night.

Vegan bitterballen!!

I had my very first bitterballen thanks to the Cafe Het Gegeven Paard and I am still stoked about how good it tasted! This is definitely the right place to come with a friend for a couple of drinks and some snacks after work!😄Even though it can get a bit crowded at the end of the day, I love its atmosphere! The stand is also super friendly and efficient. Totally recommend.

Pros: Great atmosphere, Delicious vegan bitterballens!

Cons: It can be a bit busy
