Are you looking for good vegetarian or vegan restaurants in Amsterdam? There’s a really useful website to find them: RestauPlant. The name is a contraction of Restaurant and Plant, as it’s a great place to find plant-based restaurants. On this page I’m telling you more about RestauPlant and I’m sharing a few of my favorite vegan restaurants in Amsterdam.
The website RestauPlant is created by Katelijne Kolman. She started eating vegan in 2020. She loves going out for lunch or dinner and when she became vegan she found it quite difficult to find good vegan restaurants in Amsterdam or restaurants with good vegan options. That’s why she decided to create the platform that she was missing. RestauPlant is a website on which vegetarians and vegans can share their experiences and find good vegan options in the area.
RestauPlant started in Amsterdam, and that’s still the city in which they’ve got most restaurants listed. So if you’re looking for a vegan or vegetarian restaurant in Amsterdam, you can check the website for the listings. In the search bar at the top of the page you can type in ‘Amsterdam’ and you’ll find over 200 results. Luckily you can easily filter the results. I love it that you can filter per neighborhood. Because most blog posts about vegan restaurants in Amsterdam, have restaurants all over the city. But you often want a restaurant in a specific neighborhood. You can also filter on the rating, the price range and the kitchen type like Thai or Mexican.
Utrecht and Rotterdam
Now you know that you can find vegan restaurants in Amsterdam with RestauPlant, but they’ve expanded to Utrecht and Rotterdam as well. They’re still adding restaurants to the lists of those cities, so it’s worth checking in again at a later time. But I saw that they already added a few of my personal favorites like GYS in Utrecht and Spirit in Rotterdam.
As a vegetarian or vegan costumer, you can create a profile on the website. With this profile you can rate the restaurants, so that you help your fellow plant-lovers to make the right decision. This is how RestauPlant is a community-based website. As a restaurant owner you can join the platform and keep your own information up-to-date. So you can add the opening times or the current menu for example. Restaurants can add their restaurant for free.
