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!

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

nice people& good food!! - Edit

1 was here with a friend 2weeks ago. The oven was broken, so we could not eat a la carte, but they made a 2/3 course menu for everyone. It was delisch! Warm and cold bites, tastings from everything they could make. With desserts you had a choice from 3pie’s.

Pros: good food, nice staff, enough choice

Cons: small place ( it is best to make a reservation)

Lovely quasi-high dining - Edit

Nice people, good food. Most important news: truly the best apple pie EVER (both vegan and as I remember in my non-vegan years). Love the fact they have yummy 'cheese'. Great!

Pros: Good value, friendly staff, nice vibe

Cons: I'd like to see some more variety on the menu

6 stars !!! - Edit

I would like to give 6 stars. Not only is the location lovely, but also the service was outstanding! The ladies literally made ALL my wishes come true - and I had quite a few special ones.
The food was delicious - the cheese OMG - the cheese ... the only negative thing I can say about Mr & Mrs. Watson is: They wouldn´t let me buy the cheese. I really wanted to - it´s so good.
The place is bigger than you think - there´s more room in the basement, so don´t walk away when it looks like there is no space for you in "vegan heaven". Why heaven? Because of the desserts. I highly recommend the raw vegan cheese cake. ufff... so good.
totally worth paying 3 Euros/ hour for parking in the area if you come by car. ;-)

Pros: great value, the cheeeeeeeeses, everything

Cons: you can´t buy the cheese (yet?)

Tasty sandwiches - Edit

Service needs to be improved - had to ask for menus and then again to order drinks which took quite a while to arrive. We had the sloppy bbq sandwich and Reuben sandwich. Both were very flavoursome, large and very filling. The bread was particularly good along with the fillings. Atmosphere is lovely albeit a bit squished with little room to move around the tables. Unfortunately the cheese which I’ve heard so much about is not available on the lunch menu so go for dinner if you want this.

Pros: tasty and well-priced sandwiches

Cons: service could be improved, cramped seating

Omg the cheese! - Edit

Well, I've been wanting a place like this to open in Amsterdam for so long. It's really lovely inside, it's a proper restaurant rather than a cafe, it's cozy and informal but at the same time really well designed. The staff are very firendly and helpful, perhaps sometimes a bit distractable but that's ok. Now, the food. The cheese platter is absolutely incredible, second to none. Hands down the best vegan cheese I've ever had. The pieces are a little small but there's lots of different types so you don't feel cheated. The Brie is out of this world, same with the blue cheese. If you miss your dairy cheeses of old, this is the place for you. Run, don't walk. The one slightly sad thing is that the main course was just properly quite poor. We had the lasagne and it was bland and soggy as well as not warm enough. Disappointing after the stunning cheeses. So, lovely atmosphere, gorgeous decor, friendly staff, mind blowing cheese, just lower your expectations a bit for the rest of the food.

Pros: CHEESE

why can’t you chose one star???? - Edit

First of all,
Bad service.
Second,
After waiting one hour, we got cold food that tasted like one of those vegan dishes you get at a meat restaurant.
£17 for a cold tasteless pasta. That’s a joke.
We are mad and not coming back.
Shape up and give us warm food at least
Kisses;*
Btw, we ate 10 minutes ago and we are still hungry. And it’s not like we eat tons normally.

You got to love Mr. & Mrs. Watson - Edit

As a vegan I was blown away by the excellent taste of all the dishes I tasted. For lunch I had bread with a vegan egg salad. The decaf cappuccino was so delicious that I ordered a second one after my first sip :)
If you visit I can recommend all the sweets! They have apple pie, chocolate brownie, cheesecake and tiramisu. Enjoy!

Pros: Extremely good food!!!, Very nice atmosphere!!!, Super tweet people!!!

Cons: No cons for me :)

Tasty! - Edit

Me and my friend had a three way menu for 30 euros. Every dish was super tasty and it was nice to be able to let my friend try out all these different vegan foods because she isn't vegan.

The only weird thing was that we had to ask for our main course because after like 40 minutes it still wasn't there. And when we asked for it, she immediately brought it like it was already standing in the kitchen for a while. The meal wasn't very hot either. The same with that we had to ask for dessert because a lot of the staff were chatting and wouldn't come to us..

Pros: Friendly staff, Very filling food, Tasty food

Cons: Staff should pay more attention to guests, Pricey

very pretty restaurant with good ambiance - Edit

Very nice restaurant where you can easily take your omni family/friends to. The staff is friendly and helpful and explains well what's on your plate.I think the prices are very reasonable and the taste of the food is really good! Pretty heavy on the stomach though. I heard the lemon pie is delicious. Need to go back and try for myself ;)btw. downstairs are more seats and it's lovely too!

Disappointed - Edit

I'm sorry to say but my husband and I were pretty disappointed about our first visit to this restaurant.
It was all very strange tasting weird combinations. The salad sounds great on the menu, with vegan cheese too, but what was supposed to be vegan cheese looked more like mashed chickpeas and there were whole cloves in the salad which I was not a fan of at all.
The pulled jackfruit was really mushy and not special at all.
The dessert was nice but small and pricey for what it was.
They were still testing out the menu I believe as it was the first couple of weeks after opening so I would be willing to give it another chance.

Pros: Nice atmosphere

Cons: Strange combinations of food
