This restaurant is 'apparently' being reworked since 2 years... No building activity whatsoever. Owner is weathering the downturn??

“Best for luch, good for dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2012

There are many restaurants of this type in Holland, and especially in 't Gooi area, but we come to this one again and again. If you car-riding or cycling the area, or visiting Naarden's bastions, look no further.

The surrounding is nice - either you seat ouside watching the GRACHT or you are inside, the ambience is just right. You feel relaxed enough, there is no over-service and no feeling that you are burning your vallet (you do not, really).

The menu is a bit standard for this type of establishment, but it has some nice 'flavour' to it, so it stands out of the surrounding restaurants. Once again - just a bit, just to make if a bit special and a bit more pleasing.

The Burger is the king. I would really like to hear what Americans think of it. But when you read 'made of Angus steak' in the menu, unlike in many other places you must trust your eyes!

Sometimes you will be serviced by the 'uitzend bureau' staff - they still deliver reasonable service, but cannot compare to the people from the core team who do really care. The opening times are a bit strange, especially in low season you can come to the closed door if you do not check the timing.

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2012

We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch. The staff were very welcoming and the food was delicious. The restaurant itself is in an old building and has loads of character. Would definately recommend this restaurant.

“Great food, lively atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

I was most impressed with de Turfloods. The building has a great ambiance - high ceilings, a balcony and some great chandeliers.

The Chef's menu of the day was reasonably priced, but all three courses were fantastic - I chose fennel soup, a mixed seafood dish and a lemon and lime dessert. The selection of different breads and rolls at the beginning was very pleasant.

On a Saturday night at 7.30 the place was buzzing. We definitely needed our reservation as it was fully booked. Service was attentive and pleasant. Easy parking nearby up on the Vesting wall.

“Getting better all the time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

The people of the turfloods clearly like their customers, very service orientated.
Good food, well thought through. Stand out in a village full of restaurant. Love the terrrace with the vieuw over the harbour and the old Arsenaal.
