Very tasty comfort food in warm relaxing atmosphere. Huge portions, so go hungry. We booked which took any stress out of the evening, and there were a few couples turned away while we were there. I had the Suddervlees, very velvety and savoury, and husband...More

Even though the food is not really special (it's ok, don't worry) we do take our foreign friends here since it has that real Dutch feel. It's usually very crowded (it's in all the guides so the people eating there are mostly tourists) so make...More
