Excellent food is a good setting

This restaurant is a bit different to the usual ones we go to. It is a bar that serves food, but that doesn't do the quality of the food justice. The food is a much better than most restaurants, even if the portions are a bit small. It is beautifully made up and tastes great. However, the portions... read more

I don't know what to think of this restaurant, we sat in the bordello part of the restaurant, annoying that waiters walk by the table gazillion times! Food is good not cheap! The waiter is kind BUT in your face. Wine € 4,- per glass, pretty normal but it makes a difference who poors it! The catch of the day... More

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Not that much choice in this area but glad I walked this far from Crown Plaza where I was staying. The bar area was great hidden round the corner and I only realised how good it was as I was leaving.

We regularly visit Joseph's with rather large groups. Since our groups are usually too big for à-la-carte, they provide us with a menu's with 3 choices for starters and dinner. The dishes are great, the staff helpful and friendly, the atmosphere is stylish, but cozy/relaxed.

I hate to admit it, the food was excellent!! No savings on the quality of the ingredients in this restaurant. When in Hoofddorp, I'll go again.

If you want a lively restaurant / bar in Hoofdorp this is the place for you. It is never a quiet night and the staff including the owner are always there with a smile and nothing is too much trouble. As real busy times you may have to wait but they never ignore you. The food is excellent with generous... More
