The restaurant itself is quiet nice. You sit on one of the so called grachten (on the water). The surrounding is just a normal living area. We ordered two different pasta dishes. There was no real taste. Both dishes were boring.

Been here a few times and are always satisfied even if it's just for a drink or a proper dinner. Highly recommend! (Don't miss Burgers & Beats on Mondays where burgers are 8 euros and there's live music to enjoy. Vegetarian friendly)
