This is the old weighing station at the entrance to the city, now housing a restaurant and cafe, very attractive and old.

Location and building are great, good service, they’re friendly and food is ok.
It may not be a must see place but you can have a good time.

It is considered one of the best restaurant of the city and the expectation is fulfilled in terms if good ingredients, nice presentations, lovely and kind service. A very good place where you can eat a salmon filet or an Angus steak and will be satisfied. Extremely fresh vegetables!

Oh boy. This Café is suited for those tourists who like old buildings to rest in, those who would like to have a coffee in a special place or for those (like us) who originally wanted to have lunch somewhere else but were to exhausted to continue searching.
And we regretted settling for this.
We had the Waag Club sandwich, an Americano and a cappuccino. And none of it was particularly good.
This wasn't a club sandwich at all. The bread was nice, to be fair. But the "smoked chicken" was just slices of chicken breast from the supermarket, the bacon was tasteless and the served potatoe chips were old-school but at least self-made. And... Egg salad on that? Really?
The staff was overwhelmed with the number of guests, the plates and cups were thrown (literally) into a plastic container to sit there and wait to be picked up to be washed and nobody smiled.
What are the points for you ask?
The toilets were nice and the drinks and food arrived fast.
That is all.

I would recommend this place for a romantic date or cozy evening. The best thing about the place is that it is lit by candles, and a lot of candles. The staff is friendly and the food is delicious. Do try the mushroom soup.
Also, it is one of those places, that is right in the city center but is not so crowded. I would also recommend making a reservation on their website.
