2) Betty’s

Betty’s has been one of the go-to vegetarian restaurants for several years. The owners Guido and Lien cook without fish, meat or eggs and vegan or gluten free on request. They offer a three-course surprise menu. For dessert, you can choose from one of the terrific cakes baked by Lien. They also have a store where they sell their favourite products, like chili powder from Mexico’s rainforest or French grape seed oil.

3) De Culinaire Werkplaats

At this culinary workshop, they make edible works of art with vegetables, fruits and grains. The owners Marjolein and Eric derive inspiration from different themes, such as a colour, a landscape, architecture or the Golden Age. The menu is made up of five small, exquisitely presented dishes. There is no set price: after having finished your dinner, you decide what the food was worth. Only open on Fridays and Saturdays.

4) Marits Eetkamer

On Fridays and Saturdays, Marit cooks the most fabulous vegetarian dishes and serves them up in her own living room. It’s like going over to a friend’s house for dinner, but someone who can actually cook, and without having to help with the dishes. Choose from a three or four-course menu. The flavours are pure and fresh, the products are mostly organic or fair-trade, and locally sourced.
