Restaurant near Holiday Inn Express & Hampton Inn

This restaurant is located just a short walk from the hotels mentioned and is located in a quiet rural setting with great views and good food. I had the beef tournedos which were excellent. Moderately priced and friendly staff.

Setting: Lovely cozy restaurant overlooking a fountain-fed pond with a giant white swan floating peacefully all evening. Beautiful! Food: Excellent preparation of a pumpkin soup and salmon main course. Delicious! Service: Very attentive and friendly. Made me feel comfortable and welcomed. Offered me a ride as it was getting dark when I left. Nice! I would definitely recommend this restaurant... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay at Hampton Inn Airport. It was within easy walking distance and a beautiful park right next to it. We were starving the first night after just arriving from Africa. The steak was excellent, so tender, and even though I'm not a vegetable eater I ate every bite of veggies. The service was... More

I was staying at the nearby Holiday Inn Express, and this was the nearest restaurant by far. Delightfully situated on the shore of a fountain-centred lake, the restaurant oozes romantic appeal. I went on a particularly quiet night and the service therefore was super fast and closely attended. The Dutch word gezellig really encompasses all that the restaurant is about,... More

Enjoyed a 3 course meal with wine with a friend, and everything was really good. I had the peking duck starter (divine), and then the rack of lamb for main course, which was a little chewy but oh so tasty. The lamb came with a carrot mash that was to die for. The presentation of everything was immaculate. For dessert... More

Visited for dinner whilst overnighting at nearby Holiday Inn Express between flights at Schiphol Airport. Walking distance from hotel, pleasant surroundings overlooking lake and with ambient atmosphere. Food was good and reasonable value. Highly recommended.

We were staying at an airport hotel and wanted a restaurant close by...the hotel called Hirondelle and they sent a car to pick us up, free of charge. We were impressed with how beautifully decorated the restaurant was...a lovely setting! The menu was extensive and included a three course set menu for 29 euros. Two of us ordered this, while...

WE did not really expect such a pleasant restaurant close to the Airport, thus we were pleasantly surprised. The interior design was a bit unusual but very nice, good taste. It was a quite evening in a quite neighborhood, relaxing. There was a limited but sufficient A La Carte selection, and a pleasant and very affordable menu. Go fo it!
