“The New Core in an Old Shell”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

One of the best places we've ever been to. And our favourite in Amsterdam area.
No so called 'shabby-schick', plain, simple and utterly delicious.Great wine cart.
Friendly and helpful staff too.
Another words: we usually make 6 Km where and 6 Km back BY FOOT.
Try it yourselves - and you will see the point.

And YES: they DO Weddings, Birthdays and other SO.

“Simple and adequate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Recently visited twice in a short time for business lunch. Simple and tasteful menu with great lunch dishes. Entree-salads can also be ordered as mains for a small additional fee. Service is nice and the river-side terrace is a very nice spot when the weather allows it. Free parking is a big premium in the competition with the many other restaurants in the village.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

First time in BarRestaurant, although the building itself is a childhood memory when the restaurant was called the oude prins.
Let's start with a minus: the parking lot is not for free for guests of the restaurants. What is next : that we have to pay for using the bathroom? Don't advertise the parking lot if you ask money for it (EURO 7.50)
Let's continue with the plus side of this restaurant: great food, great staff! The angus steak was delicous, same for the desserts the creme brulee and the strawberry dessert.
Attentative and friendly staff.
I can't wait to go back to experience the restaurant as this time we were on the terrace as it was on of these rare warm Summer evenings. But looking inside the atmosphere looked already fantastic.
A bit more expensive than Loetje, but it is value for money!

“A Good Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012 via mobile

Came in for a drink and stayed for dinner. The soup - cream of celeriac with a fabulous minced meat ravioli - was truly excellent. And the mains - steak tartare and a veal burger with pancetta and red onions delicious. Great attentive staff and a relaxed casual atmosphere made it for us.
