We met Dutch friends for lunch and were not disappointed with their choice of venue. The restaurant may appear a little formal but we found the staff friendly and the food excellent. The view of the Gothic town hall is hard to beat.

Each time I return to my hometown Gouda, "De Zalm" is my nostalgic place of reference either for a cup of coffee in the morning, a nice lunch at noon time or to hang out with family & friends at night. Food is nice and the waiters always very kind!

Nice ambiance to go and have a drink, but do not go for a (celebration) dinner! Overpriced food and with every course something has been forgotten. The worst part was the dessert: don't order the macaron! It was rock solid! I almost broke my tooth trying to eat it. Had to send it back...they still wanted to charge us for... More

I didn't eat much at lunch (cheese soup and side of sautéed spinach) but I can say all of it was surprisingly good for a historic restaurant right on the Markt. The young staff was also very kind to me: they stored my backpack while I toured the city, as the tourist office was closed as were the lockers at... More

The food was decent but the service was awkward. First the waiter missed part of the order and then unpolitely told us that we didn't ordered those things. Then we ordered a dessert that never arrived, after 30 minutes we gave up and left

Family lunch on a brief visit to Gouda. Excellent location on the main square. Friendly, low key service which fitted the mood on a hot summer's day. Excellent oysters followed by substantial (and I mean large!) portions of excellent seafood and pasta. We really enjoyed our lunch.
