At this side of Gouda market you will find a lot a restaurants / bars. Gewoon Gouds is one of them. The service is quite nice and food is of good quality. The terrace outside in wintertime is covered, so that is nice (especially for the smokers!) But at the end it is one more of the bars / restaurants... More

Me and my best friend went to lunch here. It was pretty good, though we couldn't here each other very well. It was crowded on the terrace, therefore noisy. But besides that we had a good lunch. The food was good and (for my fellow vegetarians) you can order a dish that isn't vegetarian and ask them to leave out... More

When it's sunny Gewoon Gouds has a nice spot in the afternoon/evening sun. The terrace, however, is often crowded and the restaurant's mostly indoors. Indoors there's no airconditioning and only 1 small window that can open. Result: hot hot hot. The food is not great, but you don't expect a whole lot more. Simple cafe meals. They have a menu...

Our overall experience was rather nice, the waiters were friendly and we didn't have to wait for long, even though the place was crowded. They served one of the best fresh orange juices I have had in the Netherlands and their schnitzel was quite good. But absolutely avoid the trout! It had no seasoning whatsoever and tasted like mud, the... More

We went there for the first time. Friendly staff, nice place and tasty food. Kids were no problem... The food was tasty and good enough but the chicken sate was a bit dry (2 times), but i still ate the whole plate. Ribs were good as well and its a place to come back too for sure.

A big range to pick from, and efficient, friendly service. Portion size is on the generous side but it's all good, and the burgers are (for once) served in a crusty bun rather than the trendy brioche that quickly becomes soggy. The Gouda cheese soup was a big hit on a cold March day too.

I have lunch here every time I visit Gouda because I really enjoy this spot. The service is quick and friendly, the food is tasty and the view of the stadhuis is perfect. I find their outdoor, covered dining area comfortable in each season. My favorites are the toasted brie sandwich and the green salad with warm cheese and honey.

Friendly and efficient service in a great location. The menu offers a variety of sandwiches and light meals in two sizes--regular and large. Prices are very reasonable too.

Visited yesterday, Service was poor, food was not great. Maybe investing in older and more experienced waiters would be an advice. Location is ok but would definately not visit again.

Really nice freindly place to relax over a few beers and the excellent bittergarnituur - a mixture of deep fried bitterballen, prawns, spring rolls etc - just proper beer food. Enjoyed sitting under the canopy on a rainy day, in the warm here, would definitely recomment it if you're in Gouda..
