“Enjoyable lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Stopped in on a nice summer day for lunch. I was seated along the canal so I can enjoy the outdoor air and people watching. I ordered the mackerel salad with dark bread. Food came fast. The food very tasty simple, and fresh. Service was also good and friendly. Location along the canal is also nice.

“very nice dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Had three-course chef's surprise dinner (29 Euro) and was not disappointed. With a nice bottle of Puglia wine (30 Euro), the dinner started with a tasty, small gratis portion of asparagus soup … reduced, serious taste. Starter course was a salad featuring tasty, home smoked salmon with arugula, grapefruit and white asparagus spears … yummy. Main course was beef entrecôte in a heavy sauce with grilled asparagus. Dessert choice was a three cheese platter (including a bleu, a local Dutch cheese, and a brie) or a sweet (tasty homemade cheesecake). Service was friendly and attentive; ate outside with a canal view. Recommended.

“Great wine choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

A popular all day choice with lunch, dinner, snacks, cake and coffee or just drinks. A great selection of wines by the glass. Our lunch was fresh and delicious and service friendly.

“Great food great service great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

I have been to this restaurant a number of times for dinner. Last night happened to be a special menu . Five courses for 25 euros. The food was really fantastic and the whole menu carefully thought out and well balanced.
Please do not rush to this restaurant it is becoming my favourite!!!

“Good food and wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Went for late lunch and had a mixed platter and cheese board with bread olives nuts, salami, jam etc. very good. Main meals are served from 5pm but at lunch you can also have sandwiches. Amazing wines and service, not cheap but affordable.
