“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

This restaurant is an absolute treasure ... both in terms of its location and the dining experience. We had a sensational evening meal in the beautiful calming surroundings of 't-bassin just as the sun was going down. The food was simply outstanding - we went for the €34.50 3 course Harbour Club menu, which was fantastic value and simple sumptuous. Each course was wonderfully presented and every preparation on the plate was carefully chosen to enhance the dish. The waiter/owner was helpful and passionate about the food, its quality and maximising your dining experience. His knowledge of the food was obvious and his technical vocabulary in Dutch and English was excellent. Compared to €20 dagschotel in one of the clone-cafes on 't-Vrijthof, this was literally another world! The wine list was extensive and reasonable and the overall experience was truly one of fine dining. At a push, one of the jus had started to split but otherwise the food delivered on a par with one Michellin star level, which for the price, was a sensation. Can't wait to go back!

“Quality, price and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We had a superb lunch, the price of € 17.50 3 course was in a good balance. Not more and not less. As well for the food, the service.
The service was a little bit unvisable.
But he had to do it without help.

“Understaffed and Irritable Waiter”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We couldn't even eat an appetizer because we were informed that the chef would need a long time to prepare it. So we opted for only the main dish. Even that took a very long time and it turned out that the amount of food was small. The vegetables were delicious, but quite salty and a lot of butter was used (in this day and age of healthy eating, less butter should be used). We asked for sweet wine and were told that they only had dry wines. When the desert menu came, it turned out that there were two desert wines (sweet). The waiter was not exactly friendly and extremely stressed. I went back to check on the kitchen and it turned out that only 4 people were working in the kitchen and that there were only 3 waiters. All tables outside were occupied. Clearly the staff was not prepared AT ALL for this number of guests. This was unbelieveable since they should have known that there would be a number of increased guests due to the fact that it was Saturday and high season. During the summer time there are thousands and thousands of tourists in town, add to that that the weather was nice which added a large amount of the local population and any restaurant business would have known to plan accordingly beforehand. We are not likely to return to this restaurant.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Had a wonderfull dinner with guests from abroad. It was a nice evening and we could sit outside looking to the boats. The food was excellent although it took the kitchen quit some time to prepare. For 3 courses we sat 3,5 hours. That was not a problem because we had enough to talk about. the service was good with a friendly staff.
