Always dinner on Friday evening before we do the North Sea Jazz Fest thing. The Dutch, in their usual fashion, are alway very accommodating and offer great service. Unfortunately, this year Carlos Santana was playing at the AHOY on Friday evening so we opted for lunch at Fred's on Friday afternoon. Compared to dinner the year before it was ummmmmmm....kinda sorta ok. Dinner 2012 was much better. A great mix of gourmet servings for each course coupled with the accompanying wine was tremendous. Always go for the menu with wine at Freds and you will be pleased. Service exceptional, multi-lingual staff and excellent food. While not agreeing with a previous reviewer that the lunch menu was disappointing some of the courses were "over the top" at its attempt at innovation. Hopefully North Sea Jazz Fest 2014 won't have a headline draw on Friday evening and we can return to Fred's for dinner vice lunch. Nonetheless, a yearly visit for this Jazz Fest couple. Lady of the couple comment "I love the toilets."
