Vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Amsterdam


There is a great choice of vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Amsterdam for those who don’t eat meat, or those looking for plant-based dishes to lead a more sustainable lifestyle. These are the perfect places to celebrate the end of your quarantine and maybe start an eco-conscious journey that involves swapping out meat for greens.

Marits Eetkamer

What started as a living room eatery in Marits Beemster’s house in 2013 turned into a full vegetarian restaurant 5 years later in the Andreas Bonnstraat. Marits Eetkamer, which means Marits’s dining room, offers an ever-changing vegetarian set menu for £38. While the starters remain broadly European, its main dishes have more international veggie culinary inspirations such as Indian and Surinamese. In fact, on every first Monday of the month, Gino Marengo, Marits’s partner, organizes his side project restaurant, Patu, at Marits Eetkamer.


vanVeg is a takeaway vegan delicatessen in nearby Haarlem, which is 15 minutes from Amsterdam by train. It has a nearby shop where you can sit and enjoy your meal. vanVeg has broadly international flavors, which include crispy fried chickpea balls, Jamaican stew and Algerian lentil soup.

Beter & Leuk

Beter & Leuk is the vegetarian restaurant in Amsterdam to enjoy a delicious brunch! With a largely gluten-free menu, it also has exciting lunch and dinner options, like spinach pancakes, seaweed burger, Korean rice bowls and vegan rendang. It also has an adjacent store for sustainable clothing and gifts. From time to time, Beter & Leuk organizes cooking workshops on healthy vegan meals.

A Lebanese and Israeli trattoria in the heart of De Pijp, Manamana serves exquisite Middle Eastern vegetarian cuisine. Try its delicious shakshuka, baba ghanoush, hummus, smoky aubergine dip and psychedelic cauliflower. It’s definitely a hidden gem for vegetarians in very central Amsterdam.


Betty’s is a vegetarian restaurant in Amsterdam that has existed for over 30 years. Serving a fixed 3-course meal for £35, Betty’s regularly changes its menu based on the local and seasonal produce available. Gido and her friend, Lien, visit many farmer’s markets and talk with many local producers across the Netherlands and the world to develop their veggie dishes.
