“Worth going back to ...”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Went there last night in a party of three, for a celebration dinner. The restaurant is on its own grounds and nicely situated in easy drive from anywhere in Zoetermeer. Met at the door and taken straight to the dining room and shown to our table, a nice and efficient welcome.

This restaurant offers a menu that has a la carte dishes, or a fixed menu with a range of choices included. My friends had a fish starter, veal loin main course, and tarte tatin. I avoid fish, so I went for soup followed by the same dishes they'd chosen.

What a surprise! All dishes were well-presented and plated, nicely cooked and very tasty indeed, without exception. So the verdict on food is "really quite good" overally. And given the prices for the fixed meal, this is a combination of excellence and affordability indeed.

Staffing left quite a bit to be desired. Our dining area was serviced predominantly by youngsters who were - it seemed - early into their training cycle and overseen by an efficient but very busy supervisor lady. So nothing happened quickly, nor automatically according to usually expected routines. However, we did get served, albeit slowly and with some signs of confusion. They'll get better with more experience and better training, one hopes.

So overall this was a really good experience on quality and price, and a little bizarre on the service side. But I have high hopes and will definitely go back and even now recommend that people try it for themselves.

“A place to relax”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Kromwijk is a great place to relax. No parking problems, no good and not so good tables, from highly informal coffee plus to quite formal dining. Always something that pleases on an often changing menu and a reasonable price. The staff is young and enthusiastic. Nice, fresh bread. Like many Dutch restaurants, they refuse to serve tap water, which I find irritating. The chef displays promising hints of creativity he could develop further (the fries are a prime example of how a common food can be made and presented in a better and more attractive way) and the wines tend towards overpricing. However, the bottom line is that at the end of your meal, you feel "restaured" :)

“Pleasant surroundings, friendly service and tasty food.”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

We had a very nice meal in this retaurant on a saterdaynight prior to a visit to the local theatre. We opted for the 'action menu' and received real value for money. The staff respected our time constraint in a very professional and relaxed way.
We will certainly go back.
