Love to have a lunch there, quieter and even more attention for the guests but never annoing. Adore their choices of cheese serves as an extra course. Takes a while but leaves with a very pleasant feeling. Never make a reservervation when there's a "restaurant-week"- offer because of the people that don't know good food and get their chance of...

Excellent restaurant, beautiful interior, all well thought of ! Good spacing between the tables, great chairs. Believe it or not but it has one of the most beautiful washrooms I have ever seen, great style for a washroom, just beautiful. The food is excellent as well, well balanced, great tastes, no fluffy tricks on your table but real great food.... More

A really good dining experience and one I would repeat. Went this evening with husband, daughter and her boyfriend. Dine out frequently, and this evenings experience re service, food quality and price would have to be up there with the best. Initially we thought 'what have we booked' it was very formal, and seemingly prescriptive but once we stated what... More

In general quality and service at fred is excellent. However for some sillyreason they decided to join a citymarketing program. The result was that the restaurant was packed with couples dining for 50 euro. The other result was we had to dine for 4 hours, the quality of the food and the service dropped dramattically. Onacceptabel for a 2 michel... More

Fred is an extraordinary place. We went there with Dining with the stars deal. The restaurant generously exemplified its best shots. They were not being frugal on us whatsoever, for which the owner should be commended. The food was unusually unique, with creative dishes and flavors we've never had before. The wine and the atmosphere were great. We liked it... More

We had a 4 course lunch at restaurant FRED. Overall Excellent taste, good quality ingredients. Beautifull presentation. Service at the table was adequate and the meal was finished with the best chocolate desert we had this year. Last year we were not happy when we left the table at Interscaldes, but this year with Fred, "Dining with the stars" proves... More

Always dinner on Friday evening before we do the North Sea Jazz Fest thing. The Dutch, in their usual fashion, are alway very accommodating and offer great service. Unfortunately, this year Carlos Santana was playing at the AHOY on Friday evening so we opted for lunch at Fred's on Friday afternoon. Compared to dinner the year before it was ummmmmmm....kinda...

To start with the positives: I really liked the food and there was enough of it. I found service somewhat wanting, however. The sommelier did not provide any advice on alcohol when we asked for brandy, just brought us some and poured in the glasses, without even telling us which brandy it was. Our waitress smiled once during the whole... More

Based on the TripAdvisor reviews we booked a table for 2 on a Thursday evening after having found out that our first choice (In Den Rustwat, across the road) was fully booked. At Fred, there were only two other tables occupied. The interior is somewhat overdone in the daylight, but becomes cosier when the lights are turned on. Our general... More
