“Amazing gourmet food”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

Fancy flavors, beautifull decoration, friendly staff! The house wine was really good. We had the menu of the day, everything was perfect! It worth to come already for Gouda. For sure one of the best restaurants from our honey moon trip!

Thank Yasmine I

“Great find in Gouda”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

If you find yourself in Gouda around dinner time, it's well worth seeking out this small restaurant. Amsterdam quality, at Gouda prices!

The only hard part is finding it. Bij Ons is on a small street that the tourist probably would not find on his own. The easy way to find it is to head for Sint Jan's church. There's a tiny alleyway just by the north transept, "Koster Gijzensteeg". Head down this alley about haflway, and Bij Ons will be on the south side..

The room is modern and well designed, and the menu is a nice mix of different dishes.

Pleasant service, and a great value. Highly recommended.

“Very nice food, but a little noisy”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner at Bij Ons a few days ago with a group of 6 people.
We recieved a warm welcome in the bar downstairs by the lady behind the bar and enjoyed a drink here untill our party was comlete.
We were then shown to our table on the first floor. There was another large group (about 15) also on this floor and the accoustics at Bij Ons made it a little noisy.
But the food more then made up for this.
Our waiter did his best to keep our glasses filled and did a good job explaining all items on the menu.
The whole group decided on the tasting menu as an appetizer. 7 delicious tastings of the entire appatizer menu. Looks very nice and tasts really good.
The main courses are not your standard steak or salmon, but feature things like deer, wild boar and a catch of the day. There is also some vegetarian option, but this is limited. All the food looked amazing and tasted amazing as well. Personally I had the wild boar which defenitly deserves a recommendation, but like I said, there were no complaints for any of the others. Dishes are accompanied by roasted potatos and fries and seasonal veggies.
The desserts are worth saving room for. The Death by Chocalate is all a chacolate lover good wish for. There is a tasting dessert menu as well, and those of us who had this loved it.

Prices are not to bad either, about 18 Euro's for a main course.

I will plan a next visit to this restaurant in the nearby future.
