Unexpectedly good food, compact and comfortable.

Just thoroughly enjoyed this place, compact, comfortable, good service with a smile ( a little slow, but we were in with a big party and we were there to spend time and catch up, so we were not surprised or inconvenienced in anyway) - but the big surprise was the food which was better and more... read more

We got there more by surprise because our stay was close to the restaurant but we had a really great dinner experience. We had the 5 course surprise menu and one dish was even better than the other. I can really recommend this restaurant, we had a great dinner and the service was veeeery friendly.

We've been there twice, one time with friends, and the other time for a Valentine's day. My friends still remember their delicious dessert and I still remember what the manager did. The flowers seller came in (like they always do, with a bouquet of roses) and he asked him to give a rose to every woman in the restaurant for... More

We came here several years ago, loved it so decided to return on this visit the weekend before Christmas. It is a small place away from the centre and the menu is very varied as are the clientele, from families with children to romantic couples! The owner, who does front of house, is very welcoming and knows about wines. Once... More

I really wanted to like 1798; I'd seen reviews of it years ago and thought perhaps it'd be a good place for a special occasion. So when my partner was taking me out for my birthday, I suggested we go there. The atmosphere was gezellig (though we were quite cold and had to ask them to turn the heat on),... More

1798 takes great pride in the dishes we serve. We treat our food with respect and are professional in handling, preparing and saving it. If someone would ever get sick from eating at our restaurant we would gladly excuse ourselves and compensate. Would this really have been an accusation we are confident you would have contacted our restaurant if not... More

Our 2nd visit to this wonderful restaurant was not disappointing. We went for the 3 course surprise menu, I was delighted with the fish choices and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his hare! He would never have chosen it on a menu, but found it delicious. The friendly owner explained all of the ingredients (some of which I had never heard... More

On a quiet Saturday night I invited my friend to dinner at 1798 to thank him for the performance of a successful operation on my iMac. I had read some good reviews about this restaurant and was curious. We chose the 5 course surprise menu without any restrictions. We also opted for the wine menu to accompany the various dishes,...

Many thanks for your nice review. I assure you that TV noise may only happen during the Olympics. Took your advice on the Omebushi Plum Paste, good taste! Thanks again. 1798 Restaurant More

We ate here on friday evening whilst visiting our daughter who lives nearby. I can honestly say that eating out in Holland has never been a memorable experience, until now that is! The restaurant is really quite small, we were greeted warmly and our table was ready. The owner explained about the various menus and we opted for the "surprise"... More
