“An unexpectedly great dinner”
Reviewed February 21, 2011

We walked by this cafe several times this week, before deciding to give it a try tonight. We were tired and it was cold and we didn't want to walk far. We walked in around 7 pm and no one was eating yet, just several people drinking, and it was very dark. Not very encouraging.
The menu is very limited with about 5 appetizers, 5 mains and 5 desserts. I asked our nice server for her recommendation and she said "the pork" or "little piggies"as the English menu called it. It was delicious and beautifully presented with a side of potato and red cabbage with fig. It came with a port wine sauce on the side. Tender and good. Especially loved the red cabbage/fig combo. My daughter tried the veal shank with pasta. It was so tender it fell off the bone - the way it should. It was full of flavor, which was carried into the pasta underneath. She was very happy. For dessert we shared a piece of housemade apple pie with a side of cinnamon ice cream. It was good and not too sweet. ( I would have preferred the pie be served hot with the cold icecream). The service was excellent and friendly. I would definitely go back, maybe to try the lunch menu later this week.
People had started coming in to eat by the time we left, so it may be more of a late-night place.

One of the few good 'eetcafes' in this area, quite busy in the evening. Food is good and the menu changes frequently. Friendly service. Also a nice place to hang out with friends for a beer or two after work. Outside seating is possible, but the Clerqstraat is one of the more traffic-heavy streets. In my opinion the inside is much more 'gezellig' at the evening than during daytime when the interior can be a bit cold.
I whish there were more places like this in that neighbourhood.
