Romantic settting at a canal junction. Sat outside (was a bit chilly but we were offered blankets and the infrared heater was turned on). Very tasty and generous portions of tapas. As often in the Netherlands a great assortment of fine (Belgian!) beers.

Went for dinner in De Ruif together with some locals. The terace is located at the channel, a truly beautiful spot. Food was good and excellent choice of main dishes. Would recommend.

We happened to call in having not seen anywhere else we liked. The place was cosy and welcome on a chilly evening. The food was well cooked although not large portions. Service was good, but you need not to be in a hurry.

I liked the burger and was happy with the food. The service took too long, though. We already had to wait more than 10 minutes just to finally get a menu.
