Dutch restaurants are generally known for their great food but this really takes the cake. The service was super friendly and efficient ('would you like another glass of wine?' Yes I would!). Food was also outstanding. Everything was cooked to perfection and the accompaniment to the seafood was also a lot to shout about. I had the risotto and I... More

If you love fish, eat here. I was spoilt for choice, so went for gunard with a little risotto. The service was good and the food even better. It does sell good steaks too.

we were a group of 30+ and we were seated in two separate tables. appetizer were ok even if not that abundant - we had the opportunity to choose among 3 main courses and I got the lobster. How can you serve a lobster with cheese on top ...

I had "Chef's choice" three course meal and it was nothing special. I would expect more for the price. Service was slow. Beer was ok.

Could be better had for the price. They offer limited choice. Had some sardine did not feel fresh but eatable. Had a sea bass cooked in salt which was fine but not great. Service a bit slow not and not so friendly.

Nice, cosy and hospitality are the words to say about the restaurant. The salmon was very tender and tasty, the swordfish could have been more fresh, but still good. The restuarant is lying in one of those small, narrow streets, where there is just life.

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday dinner. We first had a drink outside under a heater, they have a nice terrace in this small alley. The restaurant inside is rather large but still cozy enough. We had oysters as a starter and lobster as a main. Both were great. Service was a bit slow, but not annoying. Best... More

We had the scampi and smoked fish appetizers, and the bouillabaise as an entree. Everything tasted very good! Great ambiance, service and food!
