The decor leaves something to be desired but the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Perhaps most importantly the food is good and indicative of what dutch people might eat, or so the staff told us. All in all we had a lovely meal.

A limited menu of slightly modernised Dutch cuisine. Starters of cheese croquettes and eel tartare were good. Mains not so successful My calves liver was fine, but such a huge slab that it put you off eating it! My husbands chicken satay was fine. Main problem was a total lack of atmosphere. Staff were very nice and exchanged my husbands... More

I think my gripe with this restuarant was Dutch Cuisine rather than the resaurant. If you like salty stodge then this is for you.... My dish consisted of some potato mashed with green veg topped by a meatball the size of a tennis ball with a sprinkling of bacon bits and some extra salty gravy on the side.On the plus... More

a restaurant where you feel welcome, very good service. Simple, classic menu. Food that everybody knows, but very well prepared. I went there with colleagues from Asia and America and they really liked it.

If you want to try traditional durch food, consider this place! It was awesome, from small dishes like "bitterballen" to musselspot. We enjoyed everything we ordered, it was fresh and delicious and the waiter was absolutely lovely. We can definitely recommend this place!

We wanted an authentic Dutch meal, but we were so tired from touring the city that we barely finished our wine. My husband's pea soup was suburb. I got the pork belly which is quite different then asian style pork belly that I am use to. Good service. Crowded with locals which is a sign that it is the right... More

We really wanted to have some traditional food and this place served it. Place was modern a bit cafeteria-like place, service was good and the food was the Dutch traditional cuisine at its best I guess. For me this was a onetime only experience and I will not return but it is just that I like different kind of food... More
