The food is very tasty and well prepared. The ambience is nice, it was on a Tuesday evening not that crowded which is a good thing. The service is also good. Although we have to learn much more about customer service in the Netherlands, with only students working as waiters.

We had lunch here and we were quite pleased. The service was good, and the food was good. Portions were quite large and prices very reasonable. Mostly soups, sandwiches and salads on the menu. There is a also a good selection of beer on tap. We sat inside as the outside was full - it's interior is unique and very... More

Position on a barge in canal was great and food was really good (carpachio salad and salmon tagliatelle). Staff were friendly with genuine smiles. Prices seemed about right. Food was maybe a little slow but we were quite happy watching boats chug by.

The food took almost an hour after ordering. And 15 minutes to get the bill. The food was fine and the beer selection was good.

With 7 friends we were looking for a place to sit and eat. At the beginning the staff made us feel like uninvited guests. So we turned back and started to going outside while lady from the counter asked us to stay and said that they will arrange a seat for us. They asked other people if they can change... More

We were not happy with the service at all. We ordered a specific beer without alcohol and we were brought another brand which was more expensive. When our food came it was not what we actually had ordered! And finally when we wanted to pay they said we could not use our debit card because the machine did not work.... More

We didn't eat here but just went for cocktails. They have a nice selection for reasonable prices. The staff ruined the experience unfortunately by being very difficult when taking our order. We asked for a substitiution in one of the shots and they acted like we were asking them to move a mountain. If you don't want to do it... More
