“Tasty lunch and relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

We stumbled across this little place one afternoon when out for a stroll in the area, and decided to stop for lunch as there were tables outside overlooking the canal, and the weather was beautiful. The menu is quite varied and has some interesting options. We were very pleased with our choices - brie on toast with honey and nuts and a side salad for me, and grilled courgette and aubergine with homemade houmous on wholemeal bread for my boyfriend. All very fresh and delicious tastes. Lunch with two soft drinks came to just under 20 euros. Very yummy honey sweets with the bill!

The only negative points were a fairly long wait for our food - although it is stated on the menu it may take a while as everything was made from fresh. Also we had shifted our table about 1/2 metre so we could sit in the sun but were asked to move back into the shade despite us not being in anyone's or anything's way whilst we were there.

I would visit here again and would recommend it to friends who enjoy fresh and healthy food.

“Good terrace for a drink and lunch”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

We had a beer and some delicious cheese as a snack while relaxing in the sun at their nice terrace. The Entrepotdok is a nice neighborhood to relax. Their variety of organic sandwiches and other snacks on the menu look good and prices are really decent. 2 waitresses were a bit clumsy but friendly though. I will definitely come back to have lunch sometime.

“A mixed bag that's generally good value”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

The good: nice location, a good terrace in a quiet neighborhood near the zoo. Small, but nice selection of beers to choose from, and an eclectic menu that's, as others have said, vegetarian friendly.

The bad: the small and friendly staff are sometimes overwhelmed by the number of afternoon patrons. You may find yourself wondering just how long a beer and a plate of cheese cubes can take. Not terribly out of line with Dutch cafes, but a bit on the long side. Ah! Make dinner reservations, otherwise you will have to look elsewhere.

The odd: Didn't check this time, but there was a large funky group table upstairs that was absolutely brilliant for cards, beer, snacks and chatter. Really, unexpected and great.

This is a pleasant little restaurant, with a good menu well-suited to vegetarians. Friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere, and free water bottles to boot. Well recommended.

“Out of the centre but much better quality than most.”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

Went for lunch. Unexpectedly good. Steak and chips really well done. Very inventive salads. Where dis they appear from?! Totally unpretentious but great food. Suspect that evenings may be much busier.
