Food, service, atmosphere all of the highest of quality. Open kitchen to watch your food be prepared and a beautiful view of the water. The 3 course meal was heavenly and the wine choices were extensive. Happy happy patron :)

I had my graduation celebration dinner with my family at Het Gouden Kalf, which was rather mediocre. First of all, everyone had to choose the same menu from the two options. Secondly, we had to wait at least 30 mins for each meal. Finally, the...More

Honestly, meals are really good. But we were eating 3:40 hours to lunch. Between every dish (7) we had to wait until 30 minutos. Then, the amount of food was really poor. After 7 dishes, I was hungry. I don’t recommend. It was awful.

Previously we had trouble getting a table but on this night we lucked out and they got us an outside table (on a Saturday night). We had a nice table. Because of our late arrival we “had to” settle for the seven (!) course surprise...More
