One of the few Dutch cuisine places in the area. Good place. Ok athmosphere. Suggest you go for - or choose from - the daily specials. very good fish/mussle bouillabaisse. Good draft beers but limited wine list. Deserts are so so...Service is ok

I decided to try some Dutch cuisine and I was not dissappointed. The restaurant is small with some outside seating. I ate inside an really enjoyed the meal. The food was very good and the service also attentive and helpful. A very nice meal to end the day on. I definitely would go here again.

A nice cozy place, good service and good traditional Dutch food. Save room for dessert. Try a couple different things from the menu. Very close to how my grandma cooked Dutch food. Reasonable prices!

Be prepared for a very filling "stick to your ribs" meal. Our server was very friendly and described all the different dishes. The food was wonderful. Try to leave room for dessert, they are great as well.
