“Great food, strange staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

First of all; the food at Het Veerhuys was excellent. Second of all, despite the fact that the restaurant is situated in the depressing city of Almere, it is situated at a nice spot at a lake and has a great terrace. Third, the staff of Het Veerhuys. Even though they are nice and work hard enough, they have their priorities mixed up. 'Are you going to stay outside the whole dinner? Once you have decided you can't change since it is very complicated for us (the restaurant at that time was catering to maybe 10 guests).' Another example: 'When you choose the menu, the whole party has to choose it, since it is very complicated for us if you order different dishes.'

When after a few hours the temperature dropped under 20 degrees Celcius, we managed to convince the staff that they are here for their guests and not the other way around, resulting in us moving to a table inside. A strange experience.

All in all Het Veerhuys is a nice restaurant with a good kitchen that just need to work on their priorities a little.

“Great experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

I was invited by friends who live in 'The Polder' (the new land close to Amsterdam). Restaurant het Veerhuys is situated close to the water, which gives you splendid views for free ;-) The atmosphere is very good and it looks stylish but not over the top, too much design or anything! And the food was very, very good. Good quality, excellent taste, beautiful combinations. We had a lovely evening and we were there from 7pm till 11.15pm. The service and the people who serve could do a bit better regarding clothes, neatness and elegancy.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2011

We ate here with friends. Food was superb and they serve delicious wines. Not one of the cheapest restaurants but what would you expect knowing that the food and wines are first class. Definitely a place you must visit if you are looking for a special place to eat. Service is also excellent by the way.
