I had a wonderful lunch with a friend there, sitting outside in a lovely day. Loved the steak! It was tender and juicy. Service and food was wonderful. Looking forward to be there again.

The restaurant is located in Ouderkerk a/d Amstel overlooking the river Amstel. The ambiance is pleasant , the service good and friendly. We were given a table where we could talk business without disturbing the other guests.

Came along here to get some respite fro an evening in Schiphol due to an early morning departure. After a 20 minute bus ride on the 300 (service every 10 minutes fro the Schiphol bus station) a short walk brings you in to the village, which is extremely picture book.

The food is OK, the ambiance as well, but it is mostly the location that is very nice : along the Amstel river, accross the old bridge and in front of the beautiful church of Ouderkerk-aan-de-Amstel

Thank Ouderkerk
