Came in for a drink with 10 people (family style, non-alcoholic). The waitress was annoyed when we came in (nonreservation). Still we were welcome…but not really. No interaction, no eye contact…as if we were not there at all. Upon paying same thing happened. She only...looked around to other guests. Felt like we were being a burden rather than welcome guests. It felt quite rude. In leaving I shared the experience with someone behind the counter. They explained it might be because it was unexpected that we came in. Hmm, apparently you should not enter when they do not expect it. Do not plan to return here ever.More

Way to much bacon on my carpaccio. But when I adressed that I didn’t expect any bacon on in. There was no service from their side. I even suggested to split the cost for a second carpaccio in half!!More

Thanks for the review. We are sorry to read that your order has not been delivered as expected. We regret that in this review you are putting on the amount of bacon so much. The menu clearly describes 'bacon crumble'. We are normally known for...More

Straightforward menu with plenty of options. Great hospitality and service. My starter was smoked salmon and I had a steak as the main course.

Looking for a good place to lunch with your family in Den Bosch? Van Puffelen is the place to go to. Friendly service, excellent sandwiches, wraps and salads also for your gluten-free family members (see gluten-free salmon sandwich photo).

Recommended by friends originating from Den Bosch, and what an excellent one! We disembarked the interesting boat trip on the Binnendieze river and right next door is Van Puffelen. Excellent attentive and polite service. Bruschetta “ever so slightly” different than Italians know it, but tasty....Food was good and the muscles prepared in dark beer are recommendable. Good value for money & Van Puffelen will most certainly be revisited on our next day trip to 's-Hertogenbosch...More

Sadly the beauty and potential of this lovely restaurant were overshadowed by their inability to deal with some basic requests to provide food which did not affect my intolerance to certain foods. This spoiled my meal as having explained three times what I could and...could not eat they still put the food I could not eat on my lunch board. And how a request for simple bread (which everyone else got) could end up toasted on my plate I just dont know! I won't be hurrying back here in the future.More

We stopped for a drink but the menu looked so incredible that we stayed for dinner. The food was fresh and the service was friendly and attentive bringing an English menu without me asking and happily switching between Dutch and English for the two of...us. The value for the food servings is fantastic. We enjoyed the Chef’s choice of starters which I recommend highly, the carpaccio was especially delicious. Watching passers by and boats along the adjacent canal from our table in the sun; what a perfect way to pass an evening!More

Picked at random as it looked nice and you could sit outside next to the canal. Friendly and all staff spoke English (like they do everywhere in Netherlands). Service was OK, they forget to bring 1 starter, and food was good and tasty. Plus as...it was midweek there was 20% off the whole billMore

Came here with a big group of 10 people and we had a lovely time. The server was attentive (the restaurant wasn't that busy) and the food was yummy. I loved the outside seating area as it's right by the canal. I'd go back!

We visited this place early December and liked it. Lot of atmosphere in the cafe and plenty of choice. Starters were generous although a little bit expensive. Mains were all good although a bit heavy in the amount of sauce. Nice choice of deserts as...well. Shame they made a mistake with the bill and it would have been nice to have one waiter instead of 4-5 different ones. Other than that would recommend going for a low key evening out.More

Not special. Too noisy. Because of bad acoustics. Staff very friendly. We didn’t like the house wine an no problem to swop with other bottle. Also one of my kids was a little bit disappointed with his bruchetta, so no problem for them to change....The spare ribs, where everyone is talking about, little bit disappointing. Luke warm and too little sauce. The fries to thick and not crispy. The caramel ice cream was okay. And also the S&D espresso was brewed okay. Just price quality a little bit too expensive.More

Went with two of my friends who are regulars and were met by very friendly waitress. Had a classic moules frites cooked in dark beer. Very good! Nice atmosphere and you can chose if you want to sit inside or outside. Extra plus for their...efforts to make us a splendid Irish coffee.More
