Betty's Vegetarian Restaurant Amsterdam


Betty's is a high quality organic vegetarian restaurant located at Rijnstraat in the Rivierenbuurt district in the south of Amsterdam.

The menu is rich and imaginative with inspiration from local and Mediterranean ingredients - even if you aren't vegetarian you can still enjoy the food on offer.

Betty's is run by host Gido Schweitzer who comes to your table describing each course in mouth-watering detail. He speaks Dutch / English and his manner is friendly but not overbearing.

The 3 course fixed menu (starter, main and dessert) changes regularly and costs €35 per person. Each course can consist of an assortment of smaller dishes. Typically the starter will be a fresh vegetable soup, freshly baked sourdough bread with olive oil and basil tapenade, mozzarella cheese, different varieties of tomato and some marinated artichokes and olives.

A main course will be something like a vegetable tart or lasagne, saffron roast potatoes (very nice!), salad with avocado and Dutch ratatouille. Desserts are a choice of home-made cakes or ice cream dishes.

Betty's has some very good wines available direct from small producers - priced from €5.75 per glass or from €26.95 per bottle.
