I went in may, with another couple, my table ordered a la carte & the chef surprise menu, the quality and presentation of the food is very good, the wines they have are excellent, it is a pitty to see the service does not meet the standards of reached by the chef and his staff.

We read about this restaurant in our guide book to the Netherlands, as a recommended place to visit, so called up to make a reservation for Saturday evening. It was surprisingly easy to get a table, but once we were inside the place filled up quickly. The tables were well spaced, with enough room to scoot around to sit next... More

Our hotel called to make a reservation 45 minutes prior to our arrival. We were lucky that we did for it soon was filled. Attention to detail was evident from the beginning. Wine selection was great. The meal was delicious. I had the chicken breast and my partner had the veal steak. Both were divine. Dessert and coffee following were... More

We went there with a group of 6 people. During the evening the level of service, food and wine where excellent. We had the 4-course-suprise menu and every course was very good.

Restaurant “Kip” (Eng: "Chicken" ) you must discover a bit. The name suggests a kind of "MacKip", while they don't even have chicken on the menu! And the appearance of the building (next to the restaurant cluster “Westelijk Handelsterrein” ) and the interior look more like a student association building than a restaurant from the above-average class. Thereby it does... More

Restaurant Kip means Chicken, but it is so, so much more. Our group of over 60 people was welcomed, fed and watered, and then watered again, for a superb evening. The staff were attentive and very much on the ball. Nothing was too much trouble, especially for those among us with food issues. The portions were generous, the service quick... More

Things took a while to get started..I was brought some water..then nothing for about 10 minutes..then an amuse bouche of fish soup..and then a menu.. But things picked up. I went for the four course surprise - said I... More

I went here for a meal with my daughters in summer. We were able to sit outside in the garden under large old trees. We had the surprise menu which was really good. Service was very good, and the atmosphere was cozy and romantic. We had a great time and I would like to return with my husband too!
