We aimed for Van Speyk based on TripAdvisor reviews and had quite a long walk through filthy weather, sleety and cold. We were relieved to arrive, and on a miserable Sunday evening the area didn't look wonderful. Van Speyk, however, gave us a very friendly welcome. It was quiet, the tables set in what seems to be an old brick-built building, with huge wooden beams, perhaps an old warehouse. There's wooden panelling on the walls and not much else, but the food and service were good and the wine too, (Cabernet Sauvignon). There was a set menu and some specials but we both ate the Dutch beef hotpot; I don't like smoked sausage much but my husband enjoyed it and the beef was very tender and well-cooked. Pudding was Dutch curd for me - something like creme fraiche/yogurt with strawberries and brandied raisins. Delicious. My husband's cheesecake was also excellent. There weren't many people in the place so we don't know what the service would be like if they were busy but there seemed to be plenty of staff on duty. Main courses are about 18-20 Euros or so.we would go back.
