I visited with2 colleagues. We were greeted by very friendly and helpful English speaking front of house staff. We chose from the 4 course set meal menu. I was very surprised about the excellent value for money we received. The meal was very nice and presented/served professionally. In short it was excellent value, excellent service and good surroundings with a... More

This is a great cozy restaurant serving excellent fare at reasonable prices. I took their "hunting" menu that is available in December. It is a 4-course meal that both unique and delicious. The food is well plated, the flavours are rich and inviting, and the wine list is quite reasonable. Staff is bilingual (at least!) and very friendly. The lighting... More

Always comes up trumps. The sort of place where you fancy eating everything on the menu! We will continue to return.

Blindly make a reservation and expect person to person service. Nothing can go wrong here. The wine list is sufficient and affordable enough to order more than one bottle. The atmosphere is perfect for a romantic dinner or a business dinner where contracts are happily signed.

We have visited this place several times during the years. Here one gets value for the money. Relaxed sphere nice sercie with a personal touch.When you come to Gouda go here for your dinner. You will not be disappointed! In summer they have wonderful outside dining in a heritage building ( former open fishmarket).

We have been coming here regularly throughout the years, and always if we have something to celebrate. It is either casual dining with a bit of class, or fine dining in a casual atmosphere. Food is great, wines are excellent and when you make use of the special menu's they offer on a regular basis, the costs are relatively low.

Lost count of the number of times I have eaten here as I regularly visit nearby on business. It is in a traditional Dutch townhouse on a really beautiful tree lined canalside, in the historic centre of Gouda. I would not advise parking in the centre of Gouda as it has a bad reputation for car crime, I have been... More
