Some friends bring us at that place and it was really good. Fresh, good taste and healthy. Menu only in German language you will need translator but they speak English.

We were in Den Haague for 2 weeks and made a special trip out of the centre of the city to this place, based on the reviews we read on trip advisor.

We arrived on Thursday 26th May at 5.50 pm ( they open at 5pm).
The place was empty, just us.
There was one lady in the kitchen area, who told us quite abruptly I thought, to "sit anywhere".
So we did, we looked at the menu and decided what to have. The we sat, and sat, remember we were the only people in there. Just us and this one dark haired lady.
She didn't speak to us and I was just about to suggest to my husband that we leave, because there didn't seem any intention of serivce.when an other younger lady came in and came to take our order.
Clearly there had been an argument or something between them, we think maybe the younger lady was late for work? and the other lady was angry and in a bad mood because of it? we don't know and we never will.
But they hardly spoke at all to each other and barely spoke to us either, except to take our order.
You know the feeling you get when you " walk in " to a couple who have had a big argument and you feel like you shouldn't be there? well that was US!!!!
Unpleasant and unprofessional !!
The food was ok, nice enough, a bit dry. certainly not worth the trip given the oppressive atmosphere !!
I would like to think this was a "one off" and that this doesn't happen very often ( if at all). But it spoiled things very much for us and we wished we had just stayed at our holiday rental and self -catered!

Dear Karen, im sorry you witnessed that that day. My friend just died the day before. That explains the heavy mood in the room. But you shouldn't have witnessed that. That was unprofessional.
I hope your stay in The Hague was good despite of this awkward evening.
Greetings

This little vegetarian restaurant is a real gem. The food is great and the staff is really friendly. Their menu is constantly changing so there's always something new to try. Highly recommended!

I went here with a bunch of friends on a recommendation from one of them. Since I stopped eating meat few years ago I'm always looking for 'original' vegetarian restaurants and this one perfectly fit that idea. The food is 'pure' and organic (which is also a big plus) and the atmosphere is cozy and doesn't feel like a giant commercial restaurant. Nice place to have a relaxing dinner with a bunch of friends.

First visit to this vegetarian restaurant in a nice part of the Hague. Welcome very friendly and menu/choices good selection incl nice wines. Food was good, prices fair but not cheap! Worth another try next time.
