We are here on a recent trip and were surprised at just how good the food was! The service was good but a bit slow at first...felt like they had too many tabled to cover. We had the mixed starters and it was amazing! Normally this kinda thing is very hit or miss but this was a lot better than... More

Kicking myself for not taking pictures. Three day visit and just exploring Zaandam when we came across this welcoming restaurant and decided to try a lunch and coffee. Not knowing the language and only guessing at choices we braved the lunch special not knowing what we ordered. We asked Lorenzo, our waiter, what else he might suggest since neither of... More

My friends and I ate lunch here one day during our week in Zaandam. They had a great variety on their menu as well as Gluten Free options for our friend. I ordered the meatball sandwich or the "broodje bal hakt" and it was out of this world. The bread was soft and fresh. The meatball was tender and succulent... More

We were staying in Inntel Hotel nearby and there seems to be not many choices around our hotel.. So with the help of Tripadvisor, we decided to give it a try. We ordered onion soup, a steak and a fish... And they were unexpectedly good! Although they were not rated as five stars dishes, the steak was tender enough and... More

Always the feeling that you are a gast and not table 7. All good from the coffe until quality of the icecream. Downstairs Grand Cafe and 1st floor only dinner or bussiness meeting or whatever. First floor can also be reserved.

The food served here is delicious, the carpaccio is the best I have eaten anywhere, the burgers are enormous and are a challenge!

Wandered around Zaandam and picked this place because the menu looked reasonably priced. Had a set 3 course menu with 2 choices on each course. All very tasty. Excellent waiter. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Visited for an evening meal after seeing reviews. Restaurant is well located with seating inside and out. Service very good from the one chap running around all the tables (it was fairly quiet). Food good quality and quantity. The menu isnt that big but enough choice for a couple of visits. The prawn cocktail and mussells main course were very... More

Stop by for an after dinner drink and to escape a brisk wind. We sat in there glass covered atrium and enjoyed ourselves. The menu looked interesting and definitely worth a return visit.

For our first meal in Zaandam, we stopped in here, by accident. Glad we did. The gentlemen working that afternoon not only picked a couple of good dishes and beers, but was a wealth of knowledge on local tourism and events. I was told by a local that this is where the other restaurant staff go when they are not... More
