Visited this restaurant twice and on both occasions chose the local "stampot" which was delicious even if somewhat unrefined. Don't eat the bread if you go for 3 courses as fantastic portions. Pea soup to start a must. Staff superb and you must book. Would...More

We visited this restaurant as part of an A&K tour for an evening meal. We selected from a menu of traditional Dutch fare. Leaning to meat, fish, potatoes, it was very tasty.

The restaurant is just ok. The food is typical dutch but there are better places to taste the food. The staff is ok, but nothing more. We had dinner the first night, but it didn't imress us to come back.

Came across this place by accident, surrounded by pizza restaurants, steak houses and other generic eateries we opted to try the local cuisine. This is not a fancy restaurant but that doesn't mean the food isn't good. We used it twice in as many days....More

We are a typical dutch restaurant with only local fresh food. Great beers from Amsterdam and local wines.
