Ok good but very overpriced

Went for lunch with a friend and it it took about 15 minutes before we were even greeted. About an hour after sitting down we finally had our meals presented to us. My salad was tasty but not worth the ridiculous price.

The view here is indeed breathtaking and you can stay there forever. It is for sure a good idea to bring your partner or kids and you can also have a good walk. The food is average.

This was my second visit, but it will definitely be my last. As others have almost unanimously mentioned, the service is at best lousy, uncoordinated, and served by disinterested, unprofessional waiters for the most part. The food is mediocre and does not live up to expectations. Credit cards are not accepted, as others have pointed out. Our small group meeting... More

Although I love this place, I should say that I usually need lot of patience after I order my food and the quality does not always meet the price and the expectation. The service is nice and friendly, but the food usually comes late.

I came across this place on a walk and decided to stop for dinner (I was alone). I walked in and hovered around for 10 minutes with everyone ignoring me. I eventually just sat down outside (loverly outside seating area for a nice summer evening) and managed to hail down a waiter. Ordered a steak with frites which was OK.... More

Considering the pleasant surroundings, what a disappoint Het Bootjeshuis is..... The staff are completely disinterested and unprofessional. If they don't enjoy working in this industry, why don't they find another job? No logic to the service, inaccurate order taking and poor coordination of timing combined to make what was, for the fifth time, an extremely unpleasant and frustrating visit. And... More

We went this evening for dinner to celebrate a birthday. Although the food is ok, the service is shocking. Firstly they do not take any cards, so you have to make sure you have cash, cash really? For my main course I ordered steak, the fries only arrived after the steak had been eaten, after asking several times if they... More

I wouldn't normally write a review, especially a negative one, but Stefan's experience with the Moomin brunch prompted some action. I also had a disappointing time at the brunch, largely due to poor communication and an inflexible attitude of the staff/owner. In my case I had reserved, though I had to confirm they had received my email. I also asked... More

What to do on your Birthday? Why not take your 2,5 year old daughter to a Moomin themed brunch at this nice location. The event was well advertised on Facebook as "Everyone welcome". No mention of the need to reserve a table, so off we went. Upon arrival the brunch buffet and tables were set nicely in this pretty location.... More

Have to agree with all the other reviews. View and location are great. Service is slow and chaotic. Food is okay. There are better places in the immediate vicinity such as "The Lodge" or "The Spaansehuis" wher every thing is better.
