Het visrestaurant is al 37 jaar in de familie, we koken nog steeds zoals vroeger, ouderwets hollandse keuken. Met veel liefde voor het product en het vak. Daarom zijn wij in nedereland in de top 10 van de beste visrestaurants beland. Wij staan op plaats vijf van de beste restaurants in noord holland. Kom en proef zelf met hoeveel liefde en vakmanschap onze producten worden geserveerd. Tot straks !!! Maandag en dinsdag gesloten.

Excellent

We went with two couples and reserved just half an hour up front. Sat outside on the terrace and the food was excellent. (Fish of course) everyone of us had a different menu and all were very good. ( and the owner wore the same shirt as me!)

Great quality home cooking at a very reasonable price. Friendly welcome and knowledgeable staff. Food is well presented with that bit extra care. Some nice Dutch beers too. Thoroughly recommend a visit to this restaurant.

Not only was the food great, also the owner is someone who knows how to properly serve and communicate with his customers. Serving also includes some background information on the method of preparation and/or the origins of the food. This is definitely a restaurant I would like to recommend.
