Looking for a good “Dutch” restaurant to eat on the last day in Holland, I found this one on TA. No regrets! The owner came to us and explained the menu and the beers that he had available! If you´re in to beers, try the local brewed “Klein Duimpje”. Afterwards the chef came also – and he speaks six languages... More

I stumbled onto this place by accident on a business trip (American knowing little or no Dutch). Located right off the square in Hoofddorp, just look for the Heineken sign. Food was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect. Anjun the owner was more than happy to translate the menu to me but it didn't matter, it was all great. Please... More

I took thgrams advice and thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Eetcafe de Vaart the evening prior to an early flight back to the US. I started with a pleasant walk from the Crowne Plaza to build up an appetite and thought I made the right choice as soon as I walked in the door to find a local crowd. I chose... More

Ended a business day at Eetcafe de Vaart before going home by air/road. Selection of beers is excellent with some good choices outside the normal range. The highlight were the pepper steak and the sate, prepared by the owner himself. All sides were freshly prepared and quality of ingredients used was evident in the taset of the food. Will definitely... More

What a great dinner. Our hotel sent our group to another restaurant in the area that turned out to be full. The Chef/Owner called Eetcafe de Vaart to see if they could seat us. The owner met us at the door and upon hearing that we were the "Four Americans", he proceeded to welcome us, seat us and get us... More

We had dinner at Eetcafé de Vaart on a Tuesday night after work. The ambiance is cosy. The waitress was very welcoming and tried her best. Your drink wasn't empty for long! The meals were well prepared. If you're a big eater, just a main course won't be enough. The green stuff was also a bit absent. Eetcafé de Vaart... More

We were after a small local place with good relatively simple food. We found it. The menu was limited but covered all meats and vegetarian. My steak was good, dessert was excellent. Only drawback is they only took cash - we were told they were getting credit card facilities - but an ATM was 40 metres down the road. Four... More
