Good food, nice location, good service. Good place to go when your budget allows you a bit more sophisticated dinner. The terrace outside in the old fish market building adds atmosphere.

Perhaps the decor could be a bit softer bit a nice restaurant nonetheless. Food was good and well presented. My meet was requested "well done" but was still a bit pink - maybe that is cultural. Service discreet but efficient. Recommended.

The restaurant is located close a canal and has an interior with rustic charm. Service was simply attentive and friendly. We had a set menu and all courses were excellent. Simply tasteful. I would recommend this restaurant if you visit Gouda.

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.
