“Nice view, quick service and excellent seafood meals.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This restaurant is one of the many that are situated on the Lieve Vrouw square, a pretty crowded area when the weather is fine. During our visit we enjoyed the sun with a nice view on the tower and there was a funny brass band playing. We were delighted about our seafood meals, served with crispy fried potatoes and small vegetables ‘with a bite’. And the wheat beer on draft tasted also very good, we will return!

“Great meal and a good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

We found this restaurant by accident when we got lost looking for another tripadvisor recommended restaurant, but what a great result. We had the four-course set menu at €22.50, which is great value. We got both quantity and quality as the meal was tasty, varied and filling. The restaurant is on the square opposite the tower and has seating inside and out. It was a bit dark inside but we were lucky to get the table near the only window. The menu was in Dutch but our waitress was happy to explain it in English. Very happy with th his restaurant and would return if we visit Amersfoort again.

“Nice atmosphere in the square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended by one of the locals, great choice. We had a table on the square looking out over the square. Our waiter was very helpful. The restaurant didn't have a English menu so our waiter took the time to explain all the choices. I hadn't had beef in awhile so I ordered the rib eye steak, which was very tender, but lacked the flavor of our Wisconsin beef. My wife had some kind of fish that she really enjoyed. Service was good. We spent about 3 hours there while eating and visiting. The waiter then bought us a round of drinks at the end. I am sure they don't get too many Americans in this area but we totally enjoyed ourselves.

“Good food in a nice setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I've eaten in this restaurant a number of times over the past few months and I've yet to have a bad meal.
The menu has a very good selection without becoming crowded. The food itself is good with the steaks always being a great choice.
The restaurant staff are quick and polite.

The restaurant itself is a nice setting with a real wood fire burning away at the back.
