We ate outside which was nice. It has the potential to be a really good place, but the food was pretty mediocre and then we got rather a big bill at the end.

Had an evening meal here on a business trip with colleagues. The inside of the restaurant looks like an upmarket old pub, but there the resemblance ends. All of the floor area is occupied with tables and it serves a high-quality menu of both local and international dishes. The food was excellent, and the service good also. There is a... More

Pub-like atmosphere, the a-la-carte didn't inspire me so I went for the chef's special menu, Irish tenderloin beef as the main course. The beef was delicious, cooked nicely rare / medium-rare, surrounded by a clever vegetable construction. House red went nicely with it, followed by a desert of sweet french toast. Was glad I had a 20 minute walk home... More

Good value for money and good service. Nothing too fancy. Roof terrace is a nice hangout. Locate on a crossing of two bussy streets (nothing like Amsterdam, just ' village bussy' )

We have eaten in most of the restaurants in Bussum and Naarden and this is our favorite. The food is consistently good and the owners great us like long lost friends. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Had a very good dinner here, scallops with chorizo as a starter and Lamb Trio for main. Friendly service, nice ambience, good value.

That place is lively with a nice flair. The food is of good quality. Just not as amazing as in restaurant 15a.

I enjoyed a 2 course meal and a warm welcome from the staff. A caprese salad to start which was fresh and tasy, followrd by a surf and turf tagliatelle. Only problem was why serve a pasta with a bowl of fries with mayo? Price about the norm for the area.

The place is full of Spiegel-type residents, and you know what kind of area it is if you are reading this review, don't you? So expect the place to be understated, relaxed and good quality. It is. It is also 'an old place' opposite to the other very good establishment of the same category just half a kilometer away. The... More

This is more cafe/restaurant - quite casual and great if you are in a hurry. Good food (but don't think haute cuisine). Good crowd pleaser. Good service. Terrace, but on a busy crossing.
