Algemene informatie

About Mr. & Mrs. Watson

We are Mr. & Mrs. Watson and we want to change the world with good food. Good for the planet, animal welfare, people and our taste buds.
It all started in 2017 with the opening of our plant-based food bar in Amsterdam-East, which quickly became known for its artisanal cheeses. In our restaurant we want to amaze people by the possibilities the plant-based kitchen has to offer. We serve comfort food, made with love by people with a passion for good food. We connect veganism to a sophisticated and epicurian lifestyle and inspirationally prove how pleasant and tasty plant-based food can be.
The restaurant has approximately 54 seats inside and 32 seats on the terrace.
In the following years Mr. & Mrs. Watson evolved into a broader vegan food concept, supplying a complete cheese product line throughout the Netherlands from our own factory. We are now about to take a huge next step. After years of Research and Development we will launch the world’s first plant-based Dutch cheese wheel based on faba beans. It is our ambition to once again make the Dutch world leaders in the field of cheese, this time plant-based.

The position

Our restaurant team has the important task to always offer our guest the ultimate Watson’s plant-based cheese experience, by guaranteeing high quality food, beautiful plating and an amazing service level. Our classics, such as our cheese boards and fondue are available throughout the year. Other dishes change with the seasons, keeping our operational team inspired and challenged.
We are now looking for a (interim) restaurant manager. In this position it is your mission to lead the restaurant both front & back of house. To build a thriving food bar that we can easily replicate.
