“Great food, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

We passed this restaurant several times over our stay here because we thought it served more pub style fare. We're glad we decided to give it a try before we left. The dinner menu was far from pub grub. I had a delicious piece of fish done with seasonal vegetables. Although the fish was a bit underdone in the centre the rest was incredible. Service was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return.

“Nice food with good variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Having got fed up with standard steaks, Asian, fast food restaurants we decided to try this local Dutch place. Waiter/ Bar tender was very friendly and only too willingly to let us have a meal. Good variety of food, reasonably priced and excellent presentaiton. Service was good and delivered in a genuine friendly manner. One down side was that he didn't take debit/credit cards so bit of a scramble for cash. Apart from that a nice meal in a local.

“Nice place with friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

As I stayed nearby everyday I had my breakfast here instead of getting it in the hotel and I was never disappointed. Food is fresh, tasty and well served - sandwiches, salads, roasted eggs, etc. Prices are ok. Service is very good, owners are friendly.
They have football TV broadcasting, on Sunday there were some guests who came especially for that, sitting sipping their beers and enjoyng a company, atmosphere is very friendly.
