“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

We went there because of all these great reviews. As a main course we had tuna and the fish of the day (salmon) with homemade fries. Tuna was well prepared but nothing special. Salmon was a bit too dry and quite a small slice. Fries were quite the average what they serve in most restaurants in Amsterdam. As a dessert we had their speciality sticky pie, which was once again ok but didn't take my tongue away. Odd thing was a strange smell near the wall (mould ?). As a total it was quite an average experience, and a disappointment compared to high reviews here.

“A LITTLE JEWEL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Booked this restaurant after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We booked well in advance by phone and on arriving we mentioned that it was our wedding anniversary. Nothing was to much trouble for the very friendly waitress and chefs. The steak was incredible and the champagne flowed. When we ordered the sweet it came out with all the trimmings sparklers etc, and the whole restaurant joined in the celebration. We cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough, great food, fantastic staff and very friendly customers.

“Friendly, unassuming and good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Been with several friends after reading about it. I was a little disappointed at first by the interior. It did not seem the sort of place I would have chosen to go. Don't be fooled. The food is lovely and the service friendly. Prices are very reasonable. A perfect place to enjoy dinner with good friends.
