Lovely location in Rambramdt Square. Pleasant waitress. We didn't eat but had hot drinks. Good strong coffee and English tea. Tetly tea bag actually in proper hot water and served with milk. Not everyone's priorities I realise but just what we wanted.

We ate delicious food here, had great beer for a reasonable price. The bar is located at the Rembrandt square, which is always alive and full of young people. The service in the place very decent. Would come again.

Awesome breakfast, friendly staff. Sorted out my hangover beautifully. Prices seemed reasonable given the £:€ ratio...😢
