My husband and I rode bikes from Amsterdam, following the Amstel to get to the restaurant, and had a wonderful time just getting there -- beautiful scenery on a lovely day! The meal we had was the best of our trip, and it's worth noting that the seafood starter with crab, shrimp, eel and more was spectacular, and the lamb was cooked to perfection. Sitting in the sun along the canal at this beautiful spot added to our fun as well, and the staff was very friendly and helpful (the manager was kind enough to lend me his iPhone charger, running out to his car to get it especially). I highly recommend a visit, and if you can get there by bike, so much the better!
