We arrived without a reservation on a Thursday night and were immediately seated near the fireplace. The restaurant is appointed with rich woods, warm candle light and roaring fireplace. LOVE LOVED THE ROMANTIC AMBIANCE!!! We began our special supper with the appetizer combination. This consisted of a soup sampling of mustard, bacon and tarragon (HEAVENLY CREAMY AND FLAVORFUL), the tuna,... More

We visited Diep on a Thursday evening. Diep is a very good restaurant in terms of food and could potentially be a great restaurant but the service lets the restaurant down ever so slightly. Even though the restaurant has the term Dinercafe in it's name you can accept fine dining dishes on the menu. Starters are a bit expensive for... More

Entering the restaurant we were surprised with the good atmosphere, it's a really nice place. The menu looked good, lots of good (autumn-) dishes to be found. But as good as they looked on paper the more average the dishes were on our plates. It was all ok but it missed out on ideas and something extra. The game and... More

We had a good balanced 3-course diner. The vegetarian choice had a fine balance in taste, the other courses also were of high quality, I remember especially the dessert. Friendly staff, but when we asked what wine would be suitable with the food, the waiter said he didn't know anything about wine. The wine they served matched very well though.

Nice location. Good quality food, tasy wine. Some plates are slightly overpriced for what they are especially in terms of portion but an overall good dining experience. The service is excellent! Friendly staff and dinner served with the wine at the right time.

It's an OK restaurant, nothing more, nothing less. Good: lovely atmosphere, great service, nice location. Bad: of 6 dishes eaten, 3 had major flaws: the starter had dried up ravioli which was cold. The main had the pork cooked too much, dried up and annoying. The extra starter (meat rolls) was just tasteless. The other 3 dishes were fine (cheese... More

I've been there several times over the last few years. This restaurant is consistently good, whether you visit with a group or as a couple. The menu changes regularly with the seasons and I particularly like it in the autumn, when the game season starts. Prices are very reasonable for this standard of cooking. On my recent visit I had...

The restaurant is very nice, located in a central position on the main canal. The food is nice and the people are friendly. The menu varies during the year, but overall is good. Some dishes might be a bit overpriced for what you get, but the quality is always good and they all taste as well. A nice place for... More

This restaurant is located right next to the canal; we chose to dine there on a nice sunny day and we sat outside. Service was excellent. The menu was interesting but not as extensive. We had nice local beer and had Angus beef steak, which was very tasty and was accompanied with mashed potatoes, salad, french fries (which sounds peculiar,... More

A lovely atmosphere and excellent service. The first time we chose a la carte, and the halibut was delicious and not expensive. On the second visit we had the surprise menu of four courses with a different wine for each course, and everything about it was terrific - a long and relaxed meal with lots of variety and all of...
