Very good food, service and restaurant amongst a busy area

Small, but very welcoming. Food was very good and exactly what we were looking for in terms of hearty, delicious Dutch offerings.

As I'm an avid user of TripAdvisor, I made sure to search some restaurants before the trip, especially since I heard dutch food is out of this world! I'm not sure why this is number 46 on TripAdvisor - it definitely needs to be in the top five at the very least. I had originally reserved a table for 6.30... More

Before our arrival, I traded a few emails with Jeroen regarding the use of peanut oil in the kitchen. He assured me that we would be safe. They use vegetable oil for frying. He was so friendly and helpful. When we arrived, Bart made us feel so welcome. This handsome young man hums (or sings along to the recorded music)... More

Small and cozy Dutch restaurant. The host is lovely. With a huge group, I guess we ate the whole menu. Irresistably tasty. Even at lunch time it was full. Reasonable pricing.

Wonderfully prepared Dutch food. Delish. Sorry that I was there on vacation. I would like to go back to this restaurant on a regular basis. A find in a town with a lot of choices.

We found this restaurant in the middle of a very touristy area while looking for some good, authentic food. We were a little hesitant, but went in anyway. I can't say enough good things - everything we ate was wonderful, the service and staff were completely attentive and spent a long time talking to us about food, culture, and recommendations...

Busy and jolly little restaurant with very friendly staff. The food was straightforward, hot and comforting - not thrilling but pretty much what we were looking for that night when we were tired from travelling. My pudding had too much whipped cream for my taste, compared to the other ingredients.

We enjoyed dinner here with our son. We each had one of the preset menus, which we recommend. We all chose a different menu and then shared the items. This was a big meal. The restaurant itself is small and intimate. The food is simple and delicious.
