I first ate at this restaurant in the 70s and I periodically go back to visit, often taking guests. I took a woman who hadn't been back for about 35 years. She said to the waiter, "Oh my, it hasn't changed a bit." Completely deadpan, he responds, "My father says if it isn't broken, don't fix... read more

Our family of six had reservations in this restaurant last week, and it was a good thing we did, for the place was packed with guests. They have two offerings: fondue or stone grilled on the table, both of which were served family style. We chose the stone grill, and our very efficient servers quickly brought two grills and proceeded... More

Staying at the Duinrell and wanting to escape the campsite feeling we looked around Wassenaar and decided to go for a fondue evening. What we didn't realise till we ordered is that they could only offer a maximum of 2 different fondues per table, so it was a limited choice as 2 of you have to agree to have the... More

Although the food isn't super tasty (fondu) it's great fun to go there with a group and has a nice atmosphere.

We live about 2 blocks from 't Schouwtje and we finally went there a month ago. The bar area is wonderfully done in dark wood and it is a larger area (but it is also dark lighting). The restaurant part is beyond the bar and it equally dimly lit. Our light had a short in it and did not work... More

It has been around for ages and has never changed it's formula. Good for families or just an informal dinner with friends. But also for a drink at the bar or their 'lounge' with its somewhat old school dutch interior design. Staff is friendly and welcoming, understand what you come for and assist in making the evening enjoyable and a... More

We've been here twice, with 9 years between the visits. It didn't change any: same pleasant, old-fashioned atmosphere, good but not great staff. What we like is the hot oil fondue with a variety of meats and loads of fresh frites. For those with special diets, like our need for gluten-free, the restaurant can accommodate you with at least 24... More
