“Dyning Gooische Style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

The place is full of Spiegel-type residents, and you know what kind of area it is if you are reading this review, don't you? So expect the place to be understated, relaxed and good quality. It is. It is also 'an old place' opposite to the other very good establishment of the same category just half a kilometer away. The 'oldness' gives it extra lustre. You will like the public, and the service is good. There are not so many places in Holland outside of Michelen-star category where a waiter would poor you your water. Here she/he will.

The food is between 'decent' Italian and 'decent' French, with just a hint of 'high food'. Meaning upper-class Dutch. Bouillabaisse will probably receive warm welcome by real connoisseur. You must see the faces of people devouring it and you have no doubts you must try. Archibald Salad is an another germ.

It may be a bit noisy as it is on crossroads, but it gives your 'fine dining' a bit extra exposure to the surrounding, and it is a kind of place you will like to be seen in.

So prepare for a good relaxed evening and enjoy it.

“Quick service, tasty food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2009

This is more cafe/restaurant - quite casual and great if you are in a hurry.

Good food (but don't think haute cuisine). Good crowd pleaser. Good service. Terrace, but on a busy crossing.
