Because my mother passed away a few months ago and I could not really face up to cooking Christmas dinner this year, We decided to go out. Being late with our decision we did not have a lot of choice, so we landed with 'het Kannetje'. Service was friendly but non-committal. Starters were fine one of out three mid courses... More

We had a more or less business meal with 10 people a la menu. We tried different starter and main courses and it was perfect. If you stay in Amersfoort, this lovely restaurant is a place to be.

What a sad experience this restaurant was. We all decided to leave after several unpleasant incidents with the waiters. We were lucky we went to another restaurant 100 meters to the left (De Lieve Vrouw), where both the service and the food were excellent! Last time I visited the restaurant was several years ago. I don't I will come back... More

This restaurant is a favorite of mine. I like to eat here at least once per trip to Amersfoort. The inside is laid back, unpretentious, and cozy. The soups are wonderful and there are some unique and delicious entrees. The corner fire circle is a particularly nice spot for dessert and after dinner drinks. I also find the wait staff... More

I have food intolerance and asked carefully if they could accommodate, which they confirmed. The menu card even said they would be helpfull with allergies and the waiter noted down my food triggers (e.g. onion). When I got the burger there was onion in the salad and the burger meat was a premade paddy with mystery spices. I was very... More

Nice pub atmosphere. The menu is at a reasonable and deserve a good note. Excellent carrot soup and this is usually not what I prefer. Meat tender and nice, good service

The restaurant was quite busy with locals and there was a good atmosphere. We had soups to start - celeriac and onion - both were very tasty. For mains we had flounder and beef stroganoff - both were very tasty. No room for desserts. A very enjoyable meal.

We had a really really lovely meal at this restaurant. The deserts were out of this world. Great atmosphere and very good service. Would/will recommend to friends and family visiting Holland. And such good value for money. Would be much more expensive her in the uk and probably not such good food. Thank you Amersfoort.

This restaurant is one of the many that are situated on the Lieve Vrouw square, a pretty crowded area when the weather is fine. During our visit we enjoyed the sun with a nice view on the tower and there was a funny brass band playing. We were delighted about our seafood meals, served with crispy fried potatoes and small...

We found this restaurant by accident when we got lost looking for another tripadvisor recommended restaurant, but what a great result. We had the four-course set menu at €22.50, which is great value. We got both quantity and quality as the meal was tasty, varied and filling. The restaurant is on the square opposite the tower and has seating inside... More
