Formerly Chez Val, with a new name and location. Simple organic food menu built around a daily special. Three-course menu comprises soup, main, and dessert. Organic wine, beer, tea, coffee, juice, costs around €16.50. Pleasant canal-side setting. Open Mon-Sat 5:00pm-9:00pm.

Eethuis de Zon - Edit

This is a quirky little place where they only have one meal each day. The main dish was a plateful of all sorts of nice things (stuffed pepper, risotto, salad, mushrooms, potato salad). The non-alcoholic beer was interesting (and malt which is unusual).

The Hague: A good place for for vegetarians - Edit

This restaurant is quite popular among local vegetarians and their friends (yes, it does attract also omnivores!).

It is situated on the edge of the city center at a canal. During summer time it is really nice to sit outside on the terrace (in the backyard).

As already mentioned above, the menu is built around a daily special. So there is ONE daily menu with starter, main course and dessert.

Here is the downside for vegans: the food is pretty much ovo-lacto. It is possible to have a vegan version on request, but that usually means that you get exactly the same food in exactly the same quantities as the vegetarians minus the non-vegan components. So, If the main attraction of a main course is a vegetarian croquette, the vegan version of the dish is the same as the vegetarian one, just no croquette. And if the standard dessert is strawberries with cream you get exactly the same quantity of strawberries as anybody else, just no cream. So there is some room for improvement.

Conclusion: a good place for vegetarians - not so much for vegans, alas.

Pros: good value, nice location

Cons: lack of vegan options

Good - Edit

The food was good (not excellent, not original). The service was fine (nothing I will remember forever). The price was 18 euros for: 1 soup, 1 large vegetable dish with very tasty buckwheat, 1 dessert. Only one choice of alcohol-free beer. Environment: very simple, the garden is nice but could be improved.

Pros: location, kind waiters

Cons: attention to the service, attention to the environment

Soup + main + fruit-topped yogurt = tasty dinner - Edit

As at Chez Val (De Zon's previous incarnation), there's no menu to order from: De Zon prepares one soup, one main, and one dessert each day, take 'em or leave 'em. I had the soup and the main for dinner last night - a nettle soup (nettle leaves - which tasted a bit like spinach - in a rich broth) and the main course (a.k.a. the "meal", always a hearty platter with several components, last night featuring moussaka, tzatziki, leaf salad w/tomatoes and olives, feta, and seasoned tomato-onion rice). Both courses were delicious. I didn't have the dessert last night but it looked similar to what they routinely served at Chez Val (i.e., fruit-topped yogurt). I'll definitely be eating here again. Pleasant rear courtyard with outdoor dining.

Pros: Tasty dinner, Good value in The Hague, Location on Bierkade is nice
