It is never fun to ask for checking the menu ingredients for our son (wrt food allergies), but it gets really frustating if the waiter is showing no ability/interest to help. After mentioning that we have no choice: to be sure or leave (we do not want him to get sick), the mindset was changed and the lady was prepared... More

This is the first restaurant that I have ever rated as low as a "2" but based on the quality of service that rating is about right. It was our impression that the servers did not care if we were there or not. The location, however, is good. We would not return to this restaurant.

As non-Dutch speaking Aussies, we have found some restaurants in The Netherlands to be a bit of a challenging experience ... but not so at De Mastenbar.

The best thing about this restaurant is its location - the view over the harbour is quite lovely. The food was nice but not exceptional, and we found our waitress to be quite rude. However, they are accommodating of non-Dutch speakers. Overall, a nice meal out.

The place is certainly well located. Pretty cold night and they had a really comfortable fireplace to sit around. But found the food to only slightly better than average. Chef made some good attempts but didn't quite pull it off.

De Mastenbar is located near the ijsselmeer. The view from the terrace or from the restaurant is absolutely stunning. As a vegetarian I am used to be treated as an alien. The food was more than average and the service very friendly. We will certainly come back and back and back again!
