This is a very nice, authentic dog friendly restaurant. Located on the water in Medemblik the fish stew is a warm start to a great meal. The food was delicious and the entire experience left me wanting more. I would highly suggest taking the time to eat here.

We parked our yacht at the fuel pontoon prior to leaving Medemblik on the 6 May. The owner of Kool & Co recommended the Portuguese Restaurant just a few steps away. We were greeted by an affable proprietor and treated to an excellent package of service, well presented food which was delicious, good wine and a value for money price. I can't wait to return and experience the hospitality again ... and they also have the designer beer brewery around the corner (Stadsbrouwerij Radbound) ... try radbound dubbed.

For years I pass by and I always wanted to go to this restaurant. Now, at the end of the boating season, it was time to go!

We did not make a reservation but fortunately (on a Saturday evening) we were put at a table for four.

We were asking for the wine list but it took quite a while before we'd got one. The choice was very limited and it was really hard to find a nice wine, according to us. After asking for a recommendation we were told that someone would come who knew all about wine. But the lady did not know a lot about wine....

We then tried the 'best seller' but no... not our taste. Tried another one and another one but at the end we concluded that there must be better Portugese wines to be found.

The starters were nice and the main course was okay. It was a nice evening anyway.

And the staff was very friendly though!

When the restaurant offers a more extensive choice of (better) wines we will come again!

If they want us back, that is... ;-)

The restaurant was recommended by our hostess and we were not disappointed. A warm welcome on a cold evening and a lovely table for two. The atmosphere was friendly, the waiting staff spoke excellent English and provided an English menu too. The food was delicious.

Very nice restaurant by the canal. Couldn't sit out because of rain but very nice, comfortable atmosphere inside. Portuguese plates etc on the walls. Lights a bit dim though but that makes it quite cosy. Good food menu. Excellent starters and main courses - pork loin and sea bass were delicious. Limited but good wine menu. Service a little slow but that just leaves plenty of time to chat in great surroundings.
