One of the best dinners in or around Gouda! We had a great dinner, got treated the smoked salmon house speciality and staff were very attentive. They are using local produce.

Because of my birthday the kids and I had a marvelous dinner here. The card has a nice choice of food where you really see the love for cooking. We all had a different choice from the selection. Because I had to drive the wine selection was not done for me. The restaurant is very cosy. The staff is friendly... More

We have been to this restaurant years ago and as a surprise for father's day we visited it recently. The atmosphere is really relaxed although this is a classy restaurant. The amuses offered where delicious and the additional amuse (home smoked salmon) is a must do (you have to pay a little extra). Delicious!!! The seasonal menu was another surprise:... More

GREAT RESTAURANT!! We saw it on Michelin book and drawn in by "house-made smoked salmon", and it didn't fail our expectation. Wonderfully smoky, slightly sweet, great texture and mouthful overall. Jean Marie chef was also so nice to show us the smoking process. Highly recommend to anyone who travel to Gouda, it ended our trip with a mesmorizing dining experience.

This was our second visit here, after a very positive experience last year. This restaurant is one you need to know about. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but is definitely worth a visit! They also have very nice outside seating, which we hadn't noticed on our previous visit. The food is very good, service is friendly. And... More

JM is an amazing restaurant, we love coming here. It has that special touch, which makes it well worth the walk from the city center. The smoked salmon they serve before dinner is amazing (!!) and provides nice entertainment when being cut at the table. Marieke's sense for service is very welcoming and personal, without coming too close during a... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and are never disappointed. The food is great and the menu varies quite a lot. Often they use local produce for the meals. Good for a nice evening out.

While visiting friends in Gouda, we went to Restaurant Jean-Marie. We all ordered the 3-course fixed menu- We had a smoked salmon appetizer and venison main dish with vegetables. Dessert was a type of napoleon. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. The ambiance was upscale, but not stuffy. I can't think of a single criticism.

Great ambience, excellent service and delicious food. From our experiences it is very comparable to a (one) star Michelin restaurant. They don't have the ambition to go for a star though. With their menu they also offer selected wines, including a version for people who still have to drive (BOB-menu). We thought this would mean non-alcoholic, but this is not... More
