Pros: modern

Cons: iets moeilijker te bereiken

Best vegan restaurant in Amsterdam. - Edit

It's a great vegan only restaurant, nice place, nice people, very lovely staff and good vegan food.

Make sure to reserve, since I'm not sure you'll always get space just coming in like that.

The staff really guaranteed a warm and happy welcome, really giving you the feeling like being at home.

The passion and love of the staff for what they are doing, is great to see and is one of the lovely points of this restaurant.

The food is all vegan, so it's nice you do not have to worry about that and can just let you be guided by what you read on the menu.

If there was one side note, I would have to say, then it would be that on the 'Starters' they had 'Aubergine waffles with dates' which taste for me more like a desert, now I guess that's all about personal taste, and so I just ate it as a dessert after the salad, no problem at all...

It's also a place where you can bring in omnivore friends having them to start liking the planet friendly approach.

Pros: Great vegan food, Lovely staff, Nice location

Cons: None

Nice new place - Edit

Me, my boyfriend and a friend of mine ate here yesterday.
The place looks nice. Although not everything was done yet. In the wall next to our table was a hole with electric wires... Not very safe when you have kids with you.
We started with the cheese platter. We loved it!
For main we had the no pulled pork and the salad. Both looked very good. They also tasted good.
We do think the place is expensive for what you get. Portions aren't very big and I think the food is simple, could make it at home too.
Also € 11,00 for a gin tonic is absurd... They charge the gin and the tonic seperately.
So, we like the place, but some things can be better.

Pros: Friendly staff, Nice looking place, Great cheese

Cons: Simple food, Small portions

nice restaurant, ok atmosphere - Edit

Incredibly gutsy to crowdfund and open a vegan place in NL since there are not a lot around yet. So, kudo's for that! The atmosphere is good, though I could see some more attention to interior details , some backgroud music and less light intensity please :-)
Cheese platter was nicely don up and very creative. Menu is quite limited in main courses (3) and the wine we preferred was out of stock. Food quality was pretty o.k., though at the same level we prepare it at hone while we are not chefs. I am sure there is room for improvement here and trust the chef's got the potential to lift the level to 'delight' instead of 'fine'.
On a personal note I feel the place has too much of a 'girly' atmosphere. Women are the majority of vegans I suppose. No offense, just my 2 cents!
We are aware the restaurant just opened so we will be back to do so more tasting!

A bit disappointed for lunch - Edit

I wanted to love this restaurant... But lots of "but".
I went with my two children for lunch on a Saturday ; the staff was very friendly and accommodating, but already some things went wrong - I specifically asked some ingredients out of the toasti for my youngest, and it was forgotten. The service was terribly hectic, it was obvious there was not enough staff in the kitchen, neither at service - I had to catch someone and ask the lunch plate to be taken away, after they already brought the desert to us.. The person at the table behind us saw about 3 tables being served before her even if they ordered after, including us.
I was a bit disappointed by the offer for lunch, I expected a real restaurant card and not a eatcafe style. What we had was good, but very pricey for the quantity. The tiramisu was excellent, but 7EUR for a tiramisu in a small glass half full, it's a joke.
It's a pity because the potential is there...

Pros: Decoration, Good quality , Friendly waitresses

Cons: Expensive, Hectic service, Small quantities

Best vegan comfort food in Amsterdam - Edit

I've eaten at Mr. & Mrs. Watson for dinner and lunch and I can't stop talking about the great tastes I've experienced here. The kitchen is very creative and plays with flavours that amazes the vegan, the omnivore and the vegetarian. This place is for everyone! It makes me really happy to be able to eat out with friends where all of us leave happy. The art-deco interior, wine selection and staff are very much worth mentioning too, Mr. & Mrs. Watson just gets it.

Pros: Cheese!, Wines, Friendly and happy staff

Cons: Open for breakfast? 😋

Super! - Edit

Mr. & Mrs. Watson is named after the veganist Donald Watson who invented the word Vegan. The bar is 100 percent vegan, from the menu card to the pineapple-clad chairs. We visited this place within the week of the opening after gearing a lot of good reviews. We were not disappointed, we tried the Sandwich N-Egg, Chef Thor's crocquettes & Baltimball and the French Waffle toast. They all tasted very good and we really want to come back soon!

Pros: 100% vegan, super friendly staff, lovely interior

Waw! - Edit

Last week i had dinner at Mr. & Mrs. Watson. All the food we ate was delicious. The ingredients they use are suprising and so tasty. A sausage made of apple and sage, pulled pork made of Jackfruit...Also the vegan cheeses made of cashew nuts I would highly recommend! Nice to experience something different than the usual tofu, tempeh or seitan.

I cannot wait to take my parents and friends to this restaurant and take away their assumptions of vegan food and show them vegans can eat more than just veggies and tofu:).

This could easily become my favourite restaurant in Amsterdam!

Surprising and delicious - Edit

Wow, what a brilliant restaurant! Everything you eat, is delicious and well prepared! Even for non vegetarian people, you will have a surprising evening; is this meat? No it's not. Cheese??? No it's not! For me especially the cheese and the 'egg salad' was the best. But by serving every dish, I was surprised!
Also a really nice atmosphere!
You will see me soon...again and again!

Pros: Excellent , Surprisingly

Beyond delicious - Edit

We went there in the opening week. I was impressed by the stylish art-deco interior. We got the opening menu with lots of small dishes of what will be the menu. And it was delicious. Beyond delicious, actually. Every dish tasted so good and looked beautifull too. Everything is prepared with lots of passion and care. One dish was with vegan cheeses and the restaurants subslogan 'for cheese addicts' really fits. The cheese was amazing. The last surprise was a vegan tiramisu which was a tiramisu to wake up for in the middle of the night. Well, i can't be anything but positive and i am sure that people who might still think that vegan food is boring will change their mind immediatly after having diner in this place.

Pros: Food beyond delicious, Staff very friendly and helpfull, Ambiance really nice
