The food was rather basic and was not as the menu described and was more of a snack size portion rather than a main course. I had to promt staff to get served although the waiter was polite and friendly. I wouldn't recommend it for dinner even though the location and atmosphere was nice.

I think that this place is more for lunchtime or just a coffee. The location is great and if you can sit outside, it's even better but the rest is quite a disappointment. The staff is nice but dizzy. At some point we asked for the dessert menu and the nobody came to take the order-ever! So we were fed... More

A lovely cafe with a sweet interior design in old downtown area. Menu is Dutch as well, and they have a decent variety of food. Nice plates, cups and glasses. Really liked it, would definitely go again.

If I were to give this cafe a grade, it would be a B. It is in a nice location, whereby sitting outside is pleasant. The service was very good. The menu offerings are not very creative but the food is good-- I ordered a panini type of sandwich which was quite good. And the prices are alright, definitely geared... More

Van Gogh do a very good burger. The burger comes with a side of chips. I was honestly surprised by the size of the burger, smaller than expected. But it made up for size with taste!

This is a really nice place, we liked very much how this is decorated. I had a brownie with salted caramel, it was pretty good, but I liked the apple pie my friends took more.

Look up at the stucco and the Van Gogh prints, don't look down at the concrete floor! Your impression of this place will definitely be influenced by whether you look up or down! Pleasing cafe-bar in the old town with a Van Gogh theme. I stopped by for lunch and had a smoked salmon and cream cheese toasted sandwich (19... More

The prices here are very high. The service is slow. Out of 8 desserts only one was on the menu. This place isn't worth it. You better spend your time and money elsewhere.
