uhhh yeah, next to the woods (for a nice walk), but also alongside the lake. Great food, both inside and outside (where you can sit with your feet in the sand).

The Papa’s beach house is the main attraction near the Courtyard By Marriott Amsterdam Airport. There are few places where you can go nearby the hotel ( including bowling ). But, Papa’s beach house is the place where you will want to return once again. There is a wooden building on the shore of the pond. There are a few... More

We came here twice. The first time was in the evening, there were heaters on in their beautiful terrace overlooking the lake. They had cosy indoor fires with comfy rug pullovers and big chairs. Reminding me of being on a skiing resort. The second time we went was in the day, beautiful sandy beaches overlooking the lake to relax in... More

Walking back from this restaurant to the Marriott I saw a slug on the trail that was moving faster than the wait staff. Staff said they could not offer tap water. Ordered a small still water, it came in an opened bottle with the expire date year scratched off. Did I just buy tap water in a recycled bottle? Will... More

The food was mediocre at best, really nothing to get excited about. The Ribeye steak was well cooked but under seasoned and fatty. The location is excellent with beautiful vies of the lake and a nice deck to sit on to eat. The service, however, was VERY slow and unresponsive. It's unfortunate, because this place could be great if the... More

The food, a perfectly grilled ribeye and for the vegetarian among us , ravioli with truffles was really very tasty.The (young) staff is very friendly and professional.The atmosphere is very relaxing....

We were staying the the Marriot near the airport in Amsterdam and went to this lovely lake side restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. The prix fix dinner was a bit expensive but delicious. The appetizer plate was especially interesting with tastes from around the world. Definitely a great place to eat when staying near the airport.
