vegan cheeeeeses - Edit

I loved their cheese platter and the cheese fondue. They did a really good job at recreating cheese, even my dad (omnivore) was astonished. The rest of the food was nice too but not that special.

Vegan camembert! - Edit

This restaurant is on the next level of vegan dining. Close attention to details, thoughtful and delicious dishes, amazing cheese plate.
The place was fully booked in the evening, they had only few seats available on the counter by the window. I'm so glad we didn't miss it. I suggest you to make reservation, this restaurant is so worth visiting!

Astonishing cheese! - Edit

Lets get straight to the main point - their selection of vegan cheeses is amazing! We shared a cheese platter which included a brie, a blue cheese, a herby Italian style soft cheese, a 'goat cheese' type smoked cheese and a pepperjack cream cheese. All but one cashew-based, and all but one fermented. They're fantastic, easily the best vegan cheese we've had anywhere (and I make vegan cheese occasionally, so take this subject seriously!)

the cheese platter wasn't quite a meal for two, we also shared a Ruben sandwich and a tiramisu. The ruben wasn't great, little bit dry and boring. The tiramisu much tastier, although more a mousse than a traditional tiramisu.

Little bit expensive and very slow (although friendly) service, but the cheese is unmissable!

Pros: world class vegan cheese

We had the cheese platter and they have cashew based cheese with real mold. Cemembert and roquefort. I tasted delicious. Also had a sandwich and a quiche that was great for lunch.

The people working there were really nice.

Pros: great vegan cheese , nice people, great food

epic food; lacking service - Edit

One of the best (if not THE best) Vegan food experiece ever! Gourmet level cooking.
The wait for out main dish was a bit long though (45 min.) and one of our desserts was suddenly sold out.

Pros: amazing food!, Nice and kind staff, great atmosphere

Cons: sort of unproffesional service (long wait and unke

Delicious sunday lunch - Edit

I love the interior of the restaurant, really cosy. The staff is also very friendly. We endulged on the cheese plate and a sandwish, both delicious! Eventhough the location is a bit out of the centre, it's worth the visit!!

Pros: great vegan cheese

Fantastic plant based restaurant - Edit

Just 20 minutes from Centraal Station by sprinter & walk, and worth every minute. Everything here is vegan. The jackfruit "BBQ pork" sandwich is outstanding, and some of the best fries in Amsterdam!

Staff was super friendly, and food was ready surprisingly quick.

Pros: completely plant based, great service

Not living up to the hype - Edit

Unfortunately, although I had great hopes for this all-vegan place, it hasn't lived up to expectations.
The cheese platter is certainly a must-try, but the rest of the food, though tasty, is not that remarkable.
The staff is friendly, but unattentive, poorly informed and forgetful.

Pros: Interior, home made vegan cheese

Cons: unattentive staff, pricey

Very good all vegan restaurant - Edit

Nice, modern, cosy, good atmosphere and good vegan food :)

Starter (one option): Cashew roquefort & brie, smoked almond cream cheese, mushroom-nut patê, mini soup, eggplant waffle, aioli, olives & bread: absolutely loved it!

Mains: cashew fondue and Watson tarte: very good food, the tart could have been more exciting, but was still very tasty.

Desserts: raw cheesecake, raspberry, salted caramel flavored (9/10) and tiramisu (9/10).

So yes, we very much recommend to go and have a lovely vegan dinner here! :)

Pros: Good vegan food, Great atmosphere, Real vegan dinner

Cons: None

excellent and fancy vegan restaurant - Edit

We tried the 3 courses for 32 Euros and it was all fantastic - the starter was amazing - probably my favorite vegan cheese ever. we go the special and then cashew fondue (has alcohol in it so avoid if you don’t want this taste - like traditional fondue) for dessert we had the pb&j brownie and the cheesecake. So good! Cute atmosphere too - very Art Deco.

Pros: delicious food!

Cons: small menu, a little expensive but worth it!

The taste of the all-vegan world! - Edit

Fully vegan restaurant down to the pineapple leather chairs. It’s so nice to say cappuccino and know it comes with milk substitutes by default! It gives you this amazing feeling that sometime in the future veganism will be the norm! The food is very tasty as well and we felt full for hours! The bbq jack fruit with double fried mixed potato-sweet potato fries was delicious.

Pros: delicious vegan food, large portions, pleasant and quick service

Cons: food is very generous on the oil, call in advance, it’s often booked full for dinner

great - Edit

Mr. & Mrs. Watson is a restaurant with the mission to impress people with the taste of plant-based dishes.
for me they succeed doing so.

I chose the dish with bitterballen and coriander yoghurt. It was very tasty.

my dad chose the toasted reuben.
I also tried a piece of his dish and it also tasted very good, tough the bitterballen where better :)

after we finished our meals the staff came to chat with us for a little while, it was very nice!

Pros: tasty +, friendly staff, creative dishes

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant but.... - Edit

After all the Twitter and Facebook hype we arrived here full of anticipation and ready to participate in a vegan dining experience of a lifetime. We even took friends there hoping to showcase the workings of a cool modern vegan restaurant. They only have a choice of 3 main courses plus a seasonal special which was a Shepherd's style pie. Yes, a Shepherd's Pie, the ultimate cutting edge of veganism for €17. I did enjoy it, however. Two of us had this, the other two meals being improvised platter starters with fries and mayo served as a main. It would have been nice to have had more cheese on the platter and less bread especially if you're paying €14 a pop. The two types of cheese were of excellent quality particularly the Brie but there just wasn't enough I'm afraid. Just because somewhere is 100% vegan doesn't mean you're going to walk out of there in a frenzy of helium gas fuelled lampoonery. Saying that, I look forward to returning one day and redressing a slight imbalance in the vegan force.

Pros: lovely interior, 100% vegan

Cons: limited main course options, unfocused service

disappointing - Edit

We visited Mr &Mrs Watson with such high expectations, we chose this restaurant to try with non vegan friends because we were sure that it would impress. I did love the restaurant interior but unfortunately the dinner meal options were limited with only 2 vegan cheese dishes available which was surprising for somewhere that prides itself on it’s home made vegan cheese. I opted for the starter as a main to sample the Cashew roquefort & brie and smoked almond cream cheese, they were delicious but the amount was tiny. The only other option for cheese was the fondue which has received some negative reviews. The service was really slow, we ordered drinks when our mains arrived and had to cancel the drinks as they still had not arrived after our mains were finished, the staff seemed more occupied with cleaning tables and the female member of staff actually seemed put out when asked. I do have to add that the male waiter who was also serving us that night was really friendly and helpful and gave us complimentary coffees as an apology but unfortunately our experience had been soured. I do think Mr & Mrs Watson has huge potential and I would like to try it again in the future to see if they can address the minor problems we encountered. I was certain that I would be providing a 5* review and hope I can rectify this average rating and review in the future. I do wish it much success.

Pros: 100% vegan, tasty, beautiful interior

Cons: service, limited options

goede koop - Edit

Mr and ms Watson is een gezellig restaurant, met een geweldige keuken. Het ene gerecht is nog lekkerder als het andere. De bediening is heel vriendelijk, klantgericht en efficient. Had ik al gezegd dat het eten heerlijk is. Leuke bijkomstigheid: om de prijs hoeft niemand het te laten. Ik zou voor de algehele beleving zonder probleem meer hebben betaald! Een aanrader.

Pros: vele opties

Soo delicious - Edit

I ate here when it had just opened and had an amazing meal: a sandwich with pulled jackfruit pork and sweet potato fries. It was really good, only slightly too expensive for a regular visit. I am excited to treat myself to some of the cheeses and desserts though, maybe if I have something to celebrate?

Not as good as our first time. - Edit

The first time we ate here, all was pretty good. We like the blue cheese and wanted to treat some people at dinner here.
But the second time we did not like it at all. The cheeses lacked flavour and the blue cheese could have cured for another week or two.
We’ve had vegan cheeses like this before, so it is not a big deal, let alone their own idea like some say.
The menu is small, no choice in starters and not creative. The cashew fondue is more of a dip then a liquid cheese. It tasted a lot like a simple nutritional yeast and wine mix.
We liked the most of the deserts though. The interior is nice, but make sure to come early. So you don’t have to sit downstairs next to a kitchen and the toilets in a room with no windows. It has got potential and for owners that do not come from the restaurant business it is not that bad.

Pros: great vibe

Cons: cheese had no flavour, fondue was too thick
