How it should be!

One of the best places for lunch on the market square in Gouda. Plenty of tables, nice atmosphere and clean. The service is extremely attentive and quick, several waitresses prove they really understand hospitality. The food is excellent, nothing fancy but high quality.

We ordered a Pita Shoarma with chicken meat and garlic sauce, and a Kroketten Duo, one with prawn fast and one with a kind of meat. The Pita was quite good, not the Kroketten. But this is a nice place, you sit outside in shadow and enjoy the life of a pleasant plaza.

We had the menu of three courses for 25 euros and this was very good. You pay 4 euros extra for some special dishes such as the white asparagus with lamb and that is worth the extra. The quantities are large, e.g. see my photo, but the dishes are not very sophisticated, but for this price you wouldn't expect that.... More

I had an hour to kill in Gouda after a tour and was told by our tour director that I had to try the cheese soup. Although there are many great looking establishments in the square, this one took me because of the lovely display of spring flowers. The menu and cheese soup did not disappoint! Soup was very flavourful... More

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
