The restaurant is situated along one of the canals in Gouda and has a traditional interior with a wooden floor and a fireplace. The food is of a good quality and according to some of our group the vegetarian main dishes are very good. The difference for me between very good and excellent is the lack of the wow factor,...

I have eaten here many times. The food quality is excellent and I have never been disappointed. In the summer you can sit out back. I would recommend to anyone visiting Gouda as the food is extremely good value.

The food was average, they have a nice out door dining area. I was actualy a bit disapointed, during the Gouda Habour days, the restaurant was serving hamburgers off a bbq in the street, these tasted fenominal, so my expectations where high & I was a bit disappointed.

Visited this restaurant with a large party from work. The restaurant had offered each of us a starter consisting of five samples of their starters and a choice of three main courses. The presentation of the starters was excellent and they all tasted superb. The main course was also very good. One little issue was that many of us were... More

Normally we try to choose a Tripadvisor recommended restaurant to have dinner. This restaurant however we knew already by participating an activity of the local Tourist Bureau on the day of Candlle Lighted Gouda ( in december ). Several years later we remembered this restaurant, so we went again. Now again a delicious 3 course menu with a lot of... More

First of all: the service is great! Lovely and kind people, willing to help you. After we ordered our drinks, we had a look at the... More

So visited this very nice small restaurant in Gouda last week, Very friendly staff and awesome food. I worked in the hospitality for several years so I do see things a little different when eating out. Staff very well trained, restaurant very clean and menu very interesting. You can see that this restaurant is not just "a job" for the... More

It is a good restaurant and the owner takes pride in serving good food. In special you have to sit in the beautiful garden in the back of the restaurant when the weather allows it!

Our family decided to visit the restaurant based on the good reviews published on Trip Advisor, and we found these to be precise, clearly reflecting the good atmosphere and high quality and diverse menu available. We found this restaurant... More

We were on a spontaneous visit to Gouda, so due to the lack of recommendations we chose a place to eat based on the outside appearance and so our choice fell on this restaurant due to its friendly decoration. The interior is warm and cozy, with lots of candles, cook-books and flowers. We booked a table for a later time... More
