Wonderful place for a Dutch meal

I visited here with business associates for dinner. We really enjoyed the food and the setting. It is a very warm and inviting place to have dinner. I had the beef stew which was very savory and the right amount of food. I really enjoyed the meal.

We ate at De Walrus one evening with friends, just on the spur of the moment, and they accommodated us very nicely. On the recommendation of our friends, we all had the ribs which we thought were delicious. The location is an easy walk from town centre, and the inside of the restaurant is warm and welcoming. The staff were... More

Close to center of town, seemed to be a favorite of locals--lots of families and groups from the area. Friendly service, standard menu.

There were not a lot of English tourists in Sneek and it was the week before a big sailing event so full but not overly so. We had a lovely meal at the Walrus. An English menu and a lovely waitress helping us. OK so the food. Lovely. Unusual sounding starter that was delicious and I would recommend you give... More

We took a day trip from Amsterdam and ate at the De Walrus for lunch. We had a table for 6 outside and it was lovely! They had menus in English and the staff spoke enough English that we were able to communicate quiet well. The lunch menu had a large selection of sandwiches, soups, salads other meals to choose....

I have eaten here several times over the years so was pleased to see trip advisor colleagues also agreed that this is a great place for good food, a lively atmosphere and good service. Menu choices should suit most tastes and spare ribs are a large enough portion for my wife to share with her friend. So add good value... More

Nice place favored by locals for its good comforting food , diverse menu and friendly service. Spacey with outside sitting. Ribs are good. Generous portions. A safe bet for a tasty unpretentious meal.
