We booked this place to have drinks and dinner for our wedding, and the restaurant was very accommodating, service on the day itself was great, and the food was very nice.

Menu was quite eclectic but the staff were really friendly and the restaurant itself is a beautiful Art Nouveau setting.

Went here for christmas dinner and I must say: really well done! It was crowded but staff handled things very well. They were lovely, friendly, forthcoming and polite. Nothing wrong withe menu, was actually quite creative, I was pleasantly surprised, nothing super fancy, but good food! And my favorite part: the decor, very art nouveau, very cozy, very much back...

The same food in both places with a slightly different setting. The Gaanderij is a bit less expensive. Great must try spare ribs!
