This is an old building has some charm but could do with some work. Food is good basic. Menu changes seasonally so it all depands whats on. I had some good dishes and some average.

Archibald is a well known spot in Bussum. Locals go there for lunch, drinks and a bite to eat. Their menu is based on French classics and is quite good. Do take into consideration the acoustics are not very good and you'll find your dinner conversation drowned in the background noise. Having said that, Archibald is located next to the... More

So far always good food choice at the Archibald. However the last time the food quality was disappointing. Halibut was serves on top of linguini. Both items were not properly cooked and overall not seasoned properly. Just blend and tasteless to me. Service is mostly done by really young waitress hence sometimes it did not seem well organised. After this... More

Catch up with a friend by having a good, traditional Dutch lunch: two 'kroketten' on brown bread. With mustard! No surprises, just good.

Came here for a "family" meal for 6 adults. Staff were very friendly and food was excellent. It is always a good sign when they can make slight alterations to items on the menu at request. We were worried about parking beforehand, however there appeared to be adequate street parking around - we had no problem finding a space. Only... More

Nice place to have dinner with business relations or with your family if you do not feel to cook yourself. Not too posh, not too shabby. Exactly right for a relaxed meal. Good quality food.

This is one of the nice restaurants in Bussum. It is not very far from the train station. The staff is friendly and jovial. The menu (luckily) is not very extensive, but has a number of good choices on there. Cuisine is mostly Dutch. Prices are decent (around € 35 for 3 coures) House wines are very acceptable, especially the... More

One of those places with constant great food and great service with a smile. The only reason why I am not giving them 5 stars is that the prices are high especially for a brasserie.
