We went with 5 people for a birthday dinner. Excellent quality of food. I had a steak roast (2p dish) that was grilled on coal. The meet was tender, served on just with some herbs, very natural. The service was very friendly and the cook came out to check on his cooking! When you walk into this restaurant it's easy... More

100 chracters is a lot to describe a place that can be reviewed with one word "excellent" The restaurant upstairs gives you a beatifull view over square "Wilhelmina" The food is excellent as well is the service. Start with a drink at the bar before moving to your table in the restaurant.

I had a pan seared steak, topped with Duck liver, with a side of beats/vegies and asparagus wrapped in bacon. Paired with a pumpkin bier.... I'm really not sure how to describe my meal without making it sound sexual. The service was great, the place is small with lots of candle light, and it overlooks a pleasant plaza by a... More

Its a Pub, but you also eat there. They have lots of beers, and the ambiance is good. Nice place to be, especially on the outdoor, where you can sit and enjoy your drinks, looking to the people.

From the outside the pub like ambiance is very inviting and upon entering the establishment we we're not disappointed! Very friendly staff and a large selection of tap beers. After a few beers in the bar we headed upstairs for a bite to eat and enjoyed a varied, well priced menu in a modern setting with an unexpected quality of... More

As a visitor, I have to acknowledge how disappointed I was in the wait staff that seemed to only care about the local customers. After trying to hail the waiter's attention multiple times, he finally relented and came to the table. Had I been able to get him to pay attention to any guest, I might have been able to... More

I tried to use the bathroom here on Kings day. This is a National holiday and it is always very busy at the Wilhelminaplein during this day. Part of the Kings day tradition is the free market which means you can sell stuff or raise money without the permit you normally need to sell stuff or raise money on the... More
