“Nice place, good meat, pleasant staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

Not a very frequent visitor of this part of the country, I googled just for steak in Apeldoorn, and ended up here. The restaurant is located on the first floor, and has a relatively cliché but cosy interior. The staff was very pleasant, and the food good too. The salad bar was well equipped, and kudos for the bread. I had the 200g steak, and it lived up to its expectations. Nice place, I'll come again if I'm in the neighborhood.

“A good restaurant for real meat lovers.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2009

This is a cosy, not so a big restaurant on the first floor in the city center of Apeldoorn.
Most tables are near windows so you have a nice view on the street.
The furniture is in style of a real country house that fit’s the theme of the restaurant.

The menu offers a lot of meat and minor fish. If you are a vegetarian, you can better avoid this restaurant, there are no vegetarian dishes on the menu.
I think this is a point they can work on while more and more families have vegetarian relatives.

But anyway if you like meat there is plenty of choice. They have a large amount of different steaks on the menu. If you order the 1000 gram steak carnivor and you eat the whole steak you earn a medal.
The side dishes are standard but they are good. The baked potatoes are really good. There is a salad bar where you can get your salads and sauce of your own taste. There is enough for everybody but don’t expect a king size salad bar.

They also serve spare ribs, you can eat as much as you can. For me myself I prefer other spare ribs but I think this is personal taste.

Finish your visit with an ice cream or sorbet. Watch out of the big eyes, it is so big they bring you a pillow to sit on, otherwise you can’t reach the top of the ice cream. This is really a desert for the ice cream lovers.

The prices are a little bit on the high site but not overdone. The food is good and the ambiance is great.

One minor thing is the same menu every year. That shouldn’t be a problem if you don’t come that much but if you visit this regularly the choice is to less.

Another point of a critic could be the sitting areas. There are no terras and if you are a smoker you have to walk downstairs and smoke on the busy streets. That could be an issue for some people.

Overall I can advise this restaurant to anybody except vegetarian people.
