Good things come in small packages!

A welcoming and friendly restaurant, specialising mostly in Dutch food. The service was good, the wines well chosen and not too expensive and the food nicely cooked and attractively presented. We enjoyed it enough to return a second time in a brief three-day visit.

It was a very good dinner we had here. The food was creative althought not that great in taste. The athmosphere and specially the service made this place worth a visit. Not too long walk away from Hilton.

Great food and a lovely ambience, nice bit of theatre too as the open kitchen allows you to see "the works"! Easy to get to and from the city centre as tram stops right opposite. I had the escargot, bavette steak and a lovely cheeseboard. Only minus point was that they had run out of decaff coffee!!

Had dinner there on Thursday night, has outside dining with comfy chairs, blankets and heaters. Small place so do make reservations a few nights prior to going. Server was excellent. Started with two types of bread and a square piece of polenta with a tiny dollop of mushroom mousse atop. For dinner I had the pumpkin and ricotta ravioli. Has... More

Willems is a pretty new restaurant and is a welcome 'new place at the block'. Menu's change every week for € 33,50 is a good price for three coarse dinner. Service is excellent, never real waiting time, attentitive and elegant. Laugh on their faces. Willems has a nice terrace outside in the summer time. It is just on the street... More

I visited this restaurant as it was close to my hotel. The menu had a la carte or a fixed price 3 course - which I chose. I was not disappointed. Good wine too. A small interior seemingly used by locals.

Within walking distance from the museums and the Conservatorium hotel, we were at first dismayed. The trolley tracks are being dug up right outside of this corner place, with the plaza in front looking like a construction site. Between the rain and the mud we did not enter with the highest of expectations...but then the first course came..then the second... More
