“You could get more out of it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

This was my second visit to a Humphreys restaurant. Also this location (which is nice) does not give you a feeling of being a valued customer. You get the feeling that the people who work here are not really enjoying their job. Slow and chaotic service, mediocre dishes due to this.
The dishes themselves are quite OK, especially looking at the price, but we got one main warm and the other closer to cold. It's all almost there, which is a shame.
Again everything was ok, but could be better...

“It's ok, could be better ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

I had dinner with my boyfriend here on a Friday evening. Service was ok but Dutch service doesn't tend to be spectacular. I liked my starter of salmon very much but my main was served luke warm and the chicken was not as crispy as it claimed it should have been. The decor is quite nice and a fee odd tables. All in all, it's ok, in the middle. Not spectacular, not grotesque

“Bad food in a cool restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014 via mobile

What started off so promising with a lovely hostess letting us chose our preferred table ended with a rather disappointing meal. An experience similar to the previous reviewer, I give a thumbs up to the appetizer - mushroom soup - but will try to forget the rest. An inedible fish on a bed of risotto as the main followed by a cold Baileys creme brûlée and a non-runny chocolate fondant. Still, mains are served with tons of extras, big salad, fries etc. So you won't leave hungry, just not very satisfied. Pity, because the atmosphere is pleasant. Just too bad you can get mediocre food at so many places, so no need to come back to Humphreys.

“Very very average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

There is nothing special about this restaurant - the food is average, the waitstaff is fast but impersonal and uninterested, the interior is somewhat interesting but the chairs are small and uncomfortable for anyone over average height (ie more than half of the Dutch population).

“Entrees were good but”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013 via mobile

Visited this restaurant yesterday. The starters were okay but very small portions and nothing special..salmon and fried shrimp. Entree the fishpalet was in one word awesome, what a blast but the baked fish on the other side was just okay again. The sides were very good and the complementary bread a nice touch.

The bummer was dessert my friend tried explain that he didnt taste anything than pudding instead of creme brulee with liquor 43..but nothing happened..unfortunately..so I didn't finish my dessert..

For me it's very hard to judge this restaurant because some things were fantastic and some so bad...I don't know if it's recommendable or not
