“A wonderful , impromptu dinner.”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Stumbled upon it after getting lost looking for a waterfront restaurant in the bitters island. Young waiter said they did not have a full kitchen but he suggested a pumpkin soup. Tracy had a spread platter with wonderful Dutch bread and "mature" cheese. Tried a few local beers and my first jenever drink. Manager and staff were extremely nice. The soup is superb. The bread soft and grainy. The cheese, well the cheese. There is no bad cheese here :-)

“Yummy!”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Typical Dutch service, but great soups and sandwiches at a reasonable price. The cafe was toasty and warm on a cold, windy day, and the food was excellent (we tried two soups and the salmon sandwich - all very good). I do have to say, though: if you have picky kids, this is probably not the place for you. We didn't have much luck finding anything on the lunch menu that our kids would willingly eat.

“If you don't mind waiting.”
Reviewed July 25, 2011

Sat down here for a quick lunch on Monday. After attempting to flag down the waitress multiple times we succeeded. We ordered tea and asked about the specials, she didn't know and went to check. She then returned to the terrass. but never came back to us. The lady that brought our tea told us what the specials were and had to shout across the terrass to get the waitress into our direction. After sitting down for 15 minutes already we ordered sandwiches and ended up waiting another 20 minutes before they came.
The sandwiches were delish. With fresh crunchy crusted bread and fresh ingredients.
I didn't wait around to flag down the waitress again to pay, I just went inside ad paid there.
So, the story here is: if you don't mind te wait, the food is great!
