“Nice atmosphere but the food and service is poor”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

I love their onionsoup. However, it tasted good two times. The other ten times i ordered it, it was of very low quality. Tasteless, too much water. I have made several complaints but they don't Sem to care. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and a exclusive menu on paper. But the quality of their food is not something they care too much about. They don't mind refusing costumers to make room for -more paying- others.

“We were shown the door”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

I'm wondering if this is normal... We arrived there around 5 p.m., hoping to get some drinks and some light food and we were shown the door because we were not intending to have dinner! I found it outrageous. The name of the place is "eetcafe" which indicates I can stop by at anytime there, or not? Now, after I am reading all the reviews I am happy we didn't stay, although from outside it looked quite promising. I suggest to the owner to put a big sign: "if you don't want to dine, you are not welcome", thus embarrassing situation like ours will be avoided.

Reviewed 19 June 2013 via mobile

The place looks and sounds promising.
The menu was nice. The staff were pleasant.
The service was good. The food was average.
The Carpaccio was great. The Steak and chips was ok. The meat was disappointing.
The fish looked better but I didn't try.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

We like this place but have had mixed feelings but most times have been great.
On busy weekends the service is not great but lunch/week nights we have never complained.
