The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived, yet it took the waiter enormous amount of time to get to our table and get our drinks order. Then they just let us sit there. We almost finished our first drink completely and were not even given a dinner menu yet. So I asked for it. A bored waiter who didnt smile once told me "yeah" and brought it. Then we were ignored again. It took 45 minutes to even order the food. We were two drinks down when the food finally arrived. The waiter was slow, did not smile once, obviously really bothered by his job and the whole place. I was the one choosing this restaurant and inviting my friend for dinner, and it was really embarrasing. Never again.

After weeks of trying different resteraunts in Holland as a Brit Expat, I used trip advisor and found 'tKOOKt. It was the best meal I've had since I've got here. The chicken burger was made with marinated chicken thighs which were chargrilled and amazing. The chips were homemade and the burger comes compensated with lots of salad within the burger. The wine selection is great, I had a Verdejo which was perfectly crisp and dry. I got a cheesecake to take away, they gave me an extra slice which was a lovely touch. Altogether great meal, great atmosphere, great experience.

we dined here many times and was never dissapointed. The hamburgers are presented in a nice way in this kitchen like restaurant. Every month there's a new burger of the month, but the lamb is delicious every time. Also the multi course menu (chef Vincent's choice) is a great experience!

I have been here several times now. The service is great and personal.
There is an open kitchen and a great atmosphere but best of all, the food tastes really great. Nice tender beef, lovely burgers and yummy desserts.

They are located in the back of the town centre (have a look around, you need to go here!).

Top Restaurant!
Excellent service , a handshake upon arrival. Where do you get that , there days?. Efficient timing of the courses, on time and not too soon.
My whole gang opted for the Burgers; Surprising and excellent quality.
There's Steaks and other stuff on the menu as well, by the way.
The desserts are divine.
If it is busy , only the wardrobe qualifies for improvement.
But eventually found the jacket.
There an outdoor terrace, as well as free Wifi.
The restaurant is on a location where you will not expect a place like this, a hidden gem!
Recommended.
