“Bad service unlucky with the food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

This is a very nice looking restaurant that unfortunately it didn't live up to the expectations. The restaurant was nowhere near full, but the service was slow, disorganised and at times very un attentive. 1 hour between starter and main course is not acceptable for a group of 8.
Second while the food seems to be OK, I was very unlucky! First I ordered one kind of fish and they served a completely dish of fish that the one I ordered. Second the fish they served was completely raw as if they forgot the cook it, so I sent it back. Third the second piece of fish they served me taste like ammonia ! Something was wrong with the cooking and it was inedible, the smell alone would make you faint.
After the disaster, a lot of apologies from the management but the damage was done. I will not comeback

“Enjoyable patio, nice bar area, good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

The sun was wonderful on the patio, and the service was excellent. At the bar, the staff was friendly and the bar food was 'OK'. Back again for dinner, the food was very good, and again, the staff was very friendly, outgoing and observant.

“Ok but a little too elaborate for us.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

We found the service to be fine although the beers were not very cold.
Food was over elaborate for the actual standard of the cooking. Presentation seemed to be more important than taste although I did enjoy the sweet potato soup. Perhaps it was just the wrong choice for us that evening.

“Colourful inside, good food, nice atmosphere in 'The Original Brooklyn'”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Come and visit the original Brooklyn: Breukelen, in the Netherlands. While you're there, stop by ZIZI a bistro cafe type place with no frills food, drinks, no feeling of being rushed by staff. This place is in the city center, the place to be anyway while you are in Breukelen!

You can sit and eat here for hours, be it for a romantic dinner or for a business lunch or dinner. We really like the inside of this place. A lot of bold statements of the interior decorator that did this place. Two thumbs up! The kitchen staff does a nice job of serving tasty food. We would and will go and eat here again!
