We ate just a light meal and enjoyed the evening very much in an interesting environment. The restaurant has a good wine list and a fine variety of interesting drinks with some from the area.

If you want to sit on the lovely terrace, you'll need to book in time. Also inside, which is probably even more beautiful for the eyes is hard to find a table on a Monday night. Very centrally located. Great choices of food with seasonal additions to the menu. Both the asparagus as a starter and the seafood choices for... More

On a business trip we chose to have a team meal here. The wait was short and the food was great. A limited set menu was perfect. The steak was absolutely fantastic. Overall very nice!

After shopping in town, we often eat here. We've never been disappointed. No fancy haute cuisine, just great brasserie food (the menu changes regularly, with a few veggie options), good and varied wine list. It can be noisy, though. We prefer eating in the bar, where it is a little quieter. The waiters -many of them have been working there... More

My husband and I and another couple had dinner at Pakhuis, an old factory converted into a lovely restaurant. The entrance is on a tiny alley only a few steps from the busiest street in the center of the city, but you have to know where it is or you'd never find it. The building itself is really interesting, with... More

Stopped here for lunch. Service and food were excellent. Setting is an old converted warehouse which makes it a bit different from the norm. They brew their own beer, which was most enjoyable. I imagine the atmosphere is better in the evening, the way the lighting is positioned.

Food and service great 5 stars but I'm sorry the ambiance lets it down. Who wants to have a meal and listen to Madonnas vogue blasting away, also some candles and dimmer lights would be good. What a shame as food high quality, well presented and first class service. Real let down.

This repurposed building is a perfect setting for a wonderful evening. Just make sure you book ahead because this is a very popular restaurant. I tried to book online the day of & it was full; the local hotel called & secured the last table. Every table was filled with both locals & tourists. The staff is very attentive and... More
