Nicely situated by the market square, we had hoped to sit outside in the wind shielded area, only to find that this was the smoking zone. I had thought that the Netherlands was enlightened to the nausea of passive smoking, but obviously not. We ate inside, wich was slightly grubby. The staff are not particularly attentive, but the soups (we... More

Visited on a freezing cold evening; didn't want to sit outside but the restaurant was very busy. The staff managed to find room inside and we had a 3 course meal for €25. My cheese soup was superb, very warming on a cold evening, the main course was great and the chocolate surprise was most surprising because it was different... More

A very popular restaurant with the Gouda Young Folk and has always been busy when I been. If you can catch the spots very cosy in the winter next to the numerous outdoor heaters they have in the outside area. Provides very good for an excellent price. I always go for the 3 course meal for 25€ and you will... More

The fresh foods were prepared with skill and our meals and were the highlight of an otherwise average experience. We pick from the local specialties/seasonal ingredients and were very satisfied with the delivery, the food outshines this unassuming restaurant.

This popular bar in the city centre of Gouda is very busy on weekends. The heated terras is a great place for drinks with friends. Come early if you like to take a seat in the lounge seats.

I visited Gewoon Gouds whilst on a weekend break. It can only be described as a jewel of a find whilst walking around Gouda. Some friends and I had made it our mission to see as much of the Netherlands as possible and we were not disapointed in what we found. When we arrived at Gewoon Gouds we were all... More

I've eaten at some good places, but Gewoon Gouds has to go down as my fave place in The Netherlands... and given that this was my first experience of Dutch style cooking, that is saying something. Firstly, the location. Gewoon Gouds is located in the market square in the city centre of Gouda and offers a view to the customers... More

I had a fish platter here and I was pleasantly surprised. Fresh fish, fast service and reasonably priced. You also get a great view of the old town hall. Indoors Is huge too.

This is also on the market place in the centre and the terrace is very nice, also the service is good, but the food is good but not as great as De Zalm.
