We had already visited this place a few months ago for lunch and I must say we were not very pleased. The service was long and not too pleasant and the food was average. Nevertheless, we decided to give it another try as the place...More

I had always wanted to try this restaurant as I really liked how it looked. The inside turns out to be as nice looking as the outside. The bottom part is quiet small and all the tables were taken so we headed to the first...More

Nice location with a decent terrace (outside seating), just off the New Rhine and adjacent to the Hooglandse Kerk. Good selection of draft beers, enough wines to choose from. Has a bistro menu with good options and solid food.

Nice place. Food is no haute cuisine, but decent and reasonably priced (compared to Dutch standards). Good choice of tap beers. Quite noisy, and be prepared for some waiting time (at least on a Friday night when the place is crowded.

We accidentally stumbled into the quant restaurants which was mostly directly adjacent to the cathedral. Most patrons it seemed are locals and not tourists as it has a very quaint cozy interior. The food was delicious and we had a nice evening there. Great local...More
