Creative cuisine and great concept. Overall - perfect local dishes and lovely selected wines for reasonable prices. Although there was very crowded all the time, but I think that is the indication of food quality. Will definitely return though.

Tiny old "wooden" place with a dark brown bar in a bar room with long (not very wide) tables and s small restaurant room (5x5 m) in a general. Mostly full of people. 80% locals I guess. Waitresses have a special charm, a bit rough (German "ruppich"), but fast and helpful. We mostly take zurvles with homemade fries and cooked,... More

Really nice place to visit if you want some local cuisine, I'd highly recomend the zuurvlees! We arrived at around 5pm when it opened, within half an hour the place was full but the service was fast, the atmosphere was relaxed and we felt comfortable. I'll definately be going back.
