Good homemade food - Edit

Went there with 2 vegans, 2 meat eaters, and one completely oblivious child. Some of the food was amazing, some not so much but still alright. The way they make oven potatoes is incredible, make sure to try those. The desserts were hit or miss, although the icecream was great.

The staff was exceptionally friendly, for example they accommodated a picky child's wishes.

The price is a little high but I would still go there again on special occasions.

Pros: amazing oven potatoes, friendly staff, nice vibe

Cons: expensive, a few dishes need improvements

Amazing for vegans, less so for non-vegans - Edit

Went here as a group of 2 vegans, 3 non-vegans. The burger was not liked, maybe because bean burgers taste less like meat than cheap meat substitute burgers. The raw food is delicious though, even for a non-vegan.
The soup had not much flavour. Neither did the seitan and tofu, but the herbs, sauce and spices that surrounded it were AMAZING. Best taste ever. Mayonnaise was also really good, for the burger as well. And: everything is home-made.
Do: get the tofu, seitan or raw food.
Don't: get the burger

Pros: Amazing mayonaise, Amazing spices, sauce and herbs, Amazing what they can do with raw food

Cons: Tasteless soup, Bean burger is just not so tasty, Tofu / seitan could use more flavour of their own

one star less for the high prices - Edit

Great food, but not great enough for how expensive it is. I don't understand why veggie restaurants think they can overcharge - maybe they see themselves as exotic? I'm not sure. I would definitely eat there again because the food was delicious, but not somewhere I'll go super frequently due to the prices

Pros: fresh

Cons: expensive

Hhhmmm - Edit

I have not been vegan for all that long so it is always a joy to find a restaurant that caters to ones desires. The food I ate here was OK, but nothing surprising or even terribly delicious. The prices were high enough to make me hope for something great, instead of questioning my decision to be a vegan.

Best vegan restaurant in Den Haag - Edit

Absotuley loved this plant based restaurant! I live in the States and was referred to them by a friend, and since my sister lives in Den Haag it was a perfect opportunity to visit! I felt so warm and welcomed here. The staff is full of love and care, and the venue is super cozy, food tastes absolutely amazing! I REALLY liked the seaweed croquettes and plan to visit again just for this! A must visit!

Pros: Service, Quality food, Environment

Cons: None, None, None

Simply amazing - Edit

I went to Veggies on Fire with the highest expectations, given what I read on HappyCow... and I was not disappointed.

I felt really welcome, and they even served me some raw vegetables with an almond sauce which was very good. Then I had the garlic bread with olives as a starter (about 7 euros), the asparagus with seitan and roasted potatoes (21 euros), and I even ordered the ice cream as dessert (7 euros). Everything was really amazing, and everything was explained to me by the friendly waitresses.

Yes, it's more expensive than your standard restaurant in The Hague, but if you go there you won't regret it! :--)

Pros: Incredible food, Friendly and informative staff

Cons: More expensive than your standard restaurant

Great food, great place - Edit

We had a very warm welcome here, the atmosphere was very cosy, and were helped overall very well by the waitresses. The food was great. We had some Raw-food dishes for the first time in our lives - we are very sceptical towards the claimed benefits, and also didn't believe it could be really tasty, therefore never tried any - which had however excellent taste. The brownie dessert was really, really good - at home, I make brownie myself regularly, but this was way better. We will definitely make another visit soon.

Tasty, 'simple' food - Edit

We ate here on a lovely sunny evening and ordered the raw salad, asparagus with seitan schnitzel and the chipotle burger. Their menu changes with the seasons, spring menu was on since 3 weeks.

The food was good. Dishes weren't super creative or original but definitely very tasty. I liked the seitan schnitzel a lot, firm and crispy as I hoped. Staff warned that the burger might be very spicy. It was just perfect for me, but I enjoy spicy food. The oven potatoes weren't made in oil but water. Still they were quite crispy and as tasty as when using oil. I don't mind the use of oil, but for those who do it's a nice plus.

Staff was really friendly and attentive, waiting time between dishes was perfect (I'm commenting on this since other reviewers complained).

I found the prices a little on the expensive side, but then again portions are quite big. I barely finished my plate and I eat a lot normally.

The location is not really scenic or attractive, but the restaurant is not to blame for that obviously. It's a bit away from the centre as well, which could be a downside for some.

Walking through the city to Veggies on Fire we spotted another vegan place and walking back I spotted a vegan supermarket. Could times finally be changing? ;)

Pros: friendly staff, tasty food, big portions

Cons: prices, location

Thoughtfully prepared - Edit

Incredible meal, from drinks through dessert, thoughtfully prepared by a wonderful, friendly couple in a beautiful atmosphere. In Europe we found a plethora of fake meat based restaurants (not complaining, they were good too!) so it was a nice respite to enjoy a meal based on scrumptious, fresh vegetables, perfectly prepared. Highly recommend a stop here.
Note that, like many places in Europe, dinner is an experience. There's more time between courses than Americans may be accustom to. Put enough time aside and enjoy it!

Pros: fresh, creative, family feel

Vegano y delicioso - Edit

Después de una visita a La Haya, nada mejor que cenar en Veggies on Fire. Es un restaurante 100 % vegano, donde tienen una carta deliciosa, llena de sabores y con algunos platos picantes. Los propietarios y camareros son acogedores y agradables, es un lugar donde me sentí muy bien atendida.

Pros: Platos sabrosos, Personas amigables y educadas, Verdura fresca, del día

Loaded plates of veg stuff - Edit

This place is a good example of vegetarian restaurants these days. The main dish, a veg burger, was loaded. The wine list was minimalistic, the personel friendly. The bill however was very real and frankly excessive in relation to the meal.

Good food, nice people - Edit

After many good reviews on this site and others, we gave it a try. First impression was perfect; the room very cosy, the owners very friendly and welcoming. They even did the effort of making a less spicy burger for my two year old. Still I wouldn't recommend the place for parents with children, as the waiting time is extremely long. We had to wait more than an hour between the starter and the main course, which is long and with a child way too long (and we did arrive as one of the first ones). The food itself was really nice; raw sushi being the absolute best. And the kale chips as a start was a nice touch. My partner was less impressed by the tempeh Chimichurrie. The cashew cream was amazing. And we would have loved to stay for the desert, which looked very delicious, but had to go home, since it was getting way too late for the little one. In short; I recommend this place, but not if you are in a relative hurry.

Pros: Original food, Very friendly service, Wonderful ambiance

Cons: wait between courses, No children option

Wonderful food, great atmosphere! - Edit

The dishes are very creative, with great flavour combinations and beautiful presentation.

The seasonal menus have gluten-free and raw vegan options too, and if you have any other food allergies, just let the staff know and the food you order will be prepared accordingly.

And make sure you leave room for desserts!!

Not the cheapest of places, but the high standard of the food is definitely worth it.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, nice vibe

Yaaaaay - Edit

Very very nice! Had some amazing food here. Wonderful nut-based dips, delicious burger (yummy spicy chipotle burger) with a very good side salad (lots of different veggies), very nice crispy potatoes and delicious mayonaise. And the desert... wow!
Also a big plus: the passion that they have for what they make, and the willingness to unravel the cooking secrets.
I'm already looking forward to the next time I can go here!

Pros: Delicious Food, Nice Atmosphere, Friendly Staff

Cons: ..?

Exceeded expectations, great vibe ! - Edit

Great place ! The food and presentation are exquisite!
Loved the croquettes and the burger was great ! I was skeptical about the Crème Brulee, being vegan and all, but gave it a whirl and I was very pleasantly surprised. Man, this was a feast fit for a king and I will most definitely come back soon. Next time I'll try the pepper steak !
The service was also outstanding ! I also met the owners. Great people with a genuine dedication which is reflected in every way !

Pros: Superb Organic Food, Outstanding Service, Great Atmosphere

Vegan with passion - Edit

While I love every new option for vegan dining, I was underwhelmed by Veggies on Fire. The decor and sfer is great and the service is very attentive. However, the kitchen seems to be run more on idealism than on cooking skills, because the food turned out to be hit-or-miss.
The groente kroket as a starter was nice, but the pate with the crackers was somewhat boring. It is basically a spoonful of an ok-tasting veggie paste with some dry crackers.
After that, we waited a full hour for our main course, which is simply unacceptable to me.
The tower of tempeh was very tasty, but it comes with a big side salad that was completely undressed and therefore was not pleasant to eat at all.
The Chipotle Burger consisted of a very mushy patty, a quite dry bun and a splash of Ketchup. Why can't there at least be a slice of tomato, salad, cucumber on the burger? Even a 1€ Burger at McDonalds has that. For 16€, this main was extremely disappointing.
There also some RAW food options on the menu which I only saw being served to otherwise customers. It looked like a decent sized salad of julienne vegetables, but I don't think I would want to go back to try it as it also seems quite pricey at 17€.

Pros: Fully vegan, RAW options

Cons: long wait

Cosy place, great food! - Edit

This place is where I have been waiting for: pure, healthy food served in a very elegant way. Some of the plates look like small pieces of art in which you see the passion of the owners. Veggies changes the menu with the season, so even if you come more frequent, there is always something new to try. And... I never got disappointed, only more impressed.
It might take a little longer for some plates to be served, but once you see and try the food, you'll understand why and judge it worth waiting for!

Pros: Great tast, Beautiful presentation, Very friendly staff

Cons: ...?

Awesome Vegan Restaurant - Edit

We had one of the best meals we ever had. Everything is homemade, right down to the kale chips, seitan, tortillas, ketchup, and coconut whipped cream. Raw options are available. Wines are vegan and delicious. Ours was fair trade and suffer free as well. The chipotle burger is a spicy house specialty, on a home made whole grain bun, and is incredible. Hachee, a traditional Dutch dish with cinnamon and cloves, was very good with homemade seitan. The brownie with homemade raspberry coulis and coconut whipped cream is heavenly. Menus change quarterly to honor seasonal local farming. Service is great and they explain everything you are eating.
