If you’re looking for somewhere to have a drink, lunch or dinner then call in here. Stunning setting by the river. Lovely new terrace. Spend your afternoons boat watching then continue cycling along the river. What better way to spend a sunny afternoon!

Went for my birthday at the weekend and had a lovely meal. Waiters were attentive and the food good. The new outside decking area is a good addition and offers a relaxing drink at the side of the Vliet. Only downfall was that the cushions...More

This location is so beautiful. We sat in the round room with a great view of the waterfront. The service was lovely: very courteous and polite, but not uptight. All in all, the food was nice (although not the best I ever had). Excellent portion...More

The weather was kind so we were able to dine on the terrace, with boats passing by on the canal and a distant sight of a nesting stork. Happily, De Knip’s standard of food, wine and service fully lived up to the setting. We dined...More
