“Exquisite service, romantic atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

After a nice walk in the nearby Loenermark we came down for an early Saturday dinner at the Ei van Columbus. The knispering fireplace and the relaxing settees were just what we needed to recover.

After taking our order we were moved to our table where we enjoyed the exquisite food.

Pros:
- The courses didn't really come too fast after on another, just OK.
- Friendly staff (though little distant, which might be due to the local culture)
- Good food
- Romantic atmosphere
- Lovely Wild menu
- Value for money

Cons:
- the steak of deer was slightly rare (could have been asked up front)
- serving of food was not first time right
- staff seemed relatively unexperienced (or insecure because of us, 4 guys)

Conclusion: recommended for a try; likely you will return.

“Good meal - good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

The four of us ate here last week and were very pleased with our meal. The food was delicious, the service attentive and charming and the atmosphere cosy. We had pre-dinner drinks in leather arm chairs sat round the log fire and when our starters were ready we were ushered to our table nearby. The portions were large, well presented and tasty.

Het Ei van Columbus is a great example of what the Dutch do so well, good food in comfortable surroundings for a modest price. €30 pp for 3 course evening meal with drinks.

“Very nice restaurant. Good Food at good price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

We had a very good 3-course meal at this restaurant. The people are very nice and the interior is cosy. If you can take a table outside, though. We had to go inside as it started to rain, and the interior got very warm. Although the restaurant is close to a relatively busy street, this is never a bother. The only minor point was that our courses came too quickly one after the other, but if you ask the waitress beforehand they are happy to give you more time inbetween.
We would certainly go back.
