Nice dinner in this restaurant. Food was overall very good : - seafruits salad and shrimps from the wok : very good - Trio van biefstuk op Japanse saus : meat was average but the saus is excellent ! - Le Bateau Sorbettrio : very...good even though the watermelon ice is a bit tasteless - Tartuffo classico : very good to according to my girlfriend Service was professional and the layout of the restaurant is not the most "chic" but nice atmosphere and clean. Overall I'd be happy to go back.More

When we first arrived to the restaurant we were greeted and offered the menus. I chose the tenderloin and my friend ordered the salmon and we got the veggie salad to share. The salad was yummy. We had to wait 40 mns exactly for the...main dish. We couldn’t stop complaining to each other me & my friend but when the food arrived... oh my god... it was so yummy we realized it was actually worth the wait. I would recommend this restaurant to a friend.More

We had dinner and it was a nice experience. The waitress was very attentive and the food was good. We starter with the bread platter that came with warm miniature rolls, cured ham, olives and butter. A nice start. I then had the lamb -...three different parts all very well cooked, that is deep pink in the middle just as I like it. It didn’t come with a sauce but when I asked the waitress brough me red wine sauce complimentary. My husband had the veal. The meat was again wonderfully cooked - but strangely the blue cheese that was mentioned in the menu was absent. The fries and salat that accompanies all the main courses were very good - but the portions were very small. We also tried their dessert of the day - cheese cake and brownie - both very good. Not a very big place, decorated with maritime props and quite charming.More

As we opened the door to the restaurant a group of people burst into song. It turned out it was nothing to do with us, but someone leaving their work whose colleagues had written them a song, but it was an unexpected (and entertaining) start...to the meal. Once the singing stopped we were warmly welcomed and quickly had menus and drinks in front of us. The meal we had was well cooked and well presented, the service was very warm and friendly but occasionally ditsy. We found the atmosphere and decor particularly pleasant - there is a ship’s figurehead hanging from the ceiling over the bar and you have to wonder how they got it in there. You need to book to be sure of a table.More

Business dinner with 6 different nationalities and we were pleasantly surprised. Surprising menu (Escargot and Frog legs) of good quality and the service was really good! The wine menu is a bit narrow but what is there is good. From the outside it looks like...a novelty restaurant but this place is better than that.More

We went there for a dinner, because we saw good reviews in Tripadvisor, also they were offering 20% discount for an online booking. The place is very small, for like 28-30 people in total. Firstly, I ordered a cup of mint tea, a waiter confirmed...the order. After few minutes, she brought boiled water with a regular tea bag. And when I asked where is the mint I ordered, she replied "Oh yeah, we don't have it". Later, we chose a salad with salmon and a dish called "Mixed grill" (main dish from a 3 gangen keuze menu). It contains three different types of meet on one long stick. (chicken, pork, beef). For personal reasons we don't eat pork, so therefore we asked to replace it with smth else, or just remove it. We were said both options are not possible. Ok... As a result it was just a food waste. And honestly, it wasn't delicious. But a surprise dessert was very nice, so was a coffee. There were two waiters, one of them was very friendly, another one seemed a bit rude, but maybe she was just tired. In total, we got 20% discount on drinks only, and left not satisfied. P.S. There are grammar mistakes in the online menuMore

We have been here a couple of times and every time the food has been very good. We had lobster as first course and mossels as Main, both were really good! Service is very friendly, it is a fun experience to wait next door in...a bar for the table to be picked up when it is readyMore

We made a reservation on a Saturday night, as this place was highly ranked on Tripadvisor. Maybe our expectations got too high, but the food we got served was average to us. We got salmon, cod fish and steak. We just got a tiny bit...of veggies with it, and 2 bowls of fries for 5 persons. As we asked for another bowl, the bowl never made it to the table. Before we knew our plates were already gone, and we realized we were not fulfilled yet. In the end we ordered deserts as we were still hungry. The deserts were really good! Only the service and the portions of the main courses were lacking.More

We went for a romantic dinner and to eat fishy food. It was a very small restaurant with very nice waiters. The food was very tasteful, we enjoyed our evening very much.

We loved it! The cook spoke directly to us to find the best fish for our kids. All the food was delicious and cook to perfection. I truly recommend the Gambia’s in the wok ... best one I had! Ambience is non pretentious and really...friendly service! Must visit if you are in Den Bosch.More
