Nice place for lunch or dinner. Looks funky inside but we chose the garden amongst the flowers. Good choice of food & drink with friendly staff

meals was ok, but there are better restaurants around the city. drinks (beers) little overpriced. maybe is worth a shot. I think it may be better for a lunch or drink experience outside in the garden than for a dinner inside.

Great location to sit in the sun and enjoy a wine before going to lunch. Strange: waiters run around and present the fish to their clients. Cooling chain not guaranteed!!! I wouldn't eat it. Garden atmosphere really nice.

We stopped here for a beer after visiting the Cheese Auction. Although it was lunchtime, they were most happy to serve us just some drinks. The garden is lovely.

Enjoyable place to eat, but it's a bit overpriced. Quiet cafe/restaurant with friendly staff. The menu is pretty standard. Good location in the middle of the town.

We enjoyed the scenery, coffee was okay. But the applepie was very small and therefore way overpriced! Too bad as it seemed to be a nice place. Not going back. We prefer other coffe shops in Alkmaar.
