Best restaurant in town and best we had in Netherlands! Nearby Amsterdam is worth a trip to the town just for the food. The dish of the day was salmon and linguado with vegetables, and I had a pork tenderloin with carbonara spaguetti!

My husband and I ate supper here. He said his steak was excellent. My halibut was very nice. It is not a cheap restaurant but has a nice atmosphere for a very pleasant meal.

Tasty food, friendly staff and tables outside overlooking the water. Food is about average, but they have a nice interior and a good selection of beers and wines. Lovely place.

Had a party with approx 25 eaters. Spreaded over three tables which I prefer. Menu presented is simple. Limited choice for main and dessert but appealing. Starter was a combination of 4 (e.g. salmon, cappaccio). With a larger group staff had no problem with taking...More
