“A big restaurant but small restaurant service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We had a recommendation to try this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. We visited at lunch and although it was very busy the service was very good and the food excellent. We also tried local Dutch beers which were great too. We'd certainly go again.

“Touristy, but done very well!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

This 'typically Dutch' restaurant is a strange hybrid of styles and has many eccentric and 'typically Dutch' rooms. The food is 'typical' and certainly not 'haute cuisine', but is served fast, hot and fits the requirements of filling hungry tourists and locals well! Service is fun, eccentric and efficient and the prices are very reasonable.

“Great Dutch restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went to this restaurant tonight after our hotel recommended it to us. We were pleasantly surprised when we got there after a short walk from the renaissance hotel. Sophie was our waitress and she was superb! She recommended the best dishes from the menu and we loved them. The food is full of flavor and delicious! Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants traditional Dutch cuisine!
