The menu is concise and well-balanced, the food we ordered delicious. However, service was incredibly slow; the place was under-staffed and the work poorly organised. Well, you hardly ever get good service the Netherlands... The atmosphere of the place was really nice, beautiful place too....More

They don't have the biggest selection of food but the food we had was very good. The service was on the slow side but we didn't mind as it was a sunny day and we were enjoying the beautiful street setting.

The café is architecturally interesting as it used to house the HQ of a Dutch newspaper (NRC). The service is outstanding and so are the food and beverages. Located on the “trendy” Witte de With street, this is one place you cannot miss.

We ate lunch some time ago and two times dinner with a group of 24 few days ago. The food is excellent. The location is perfect right in the heart of the busy and trendy Witte De With quarter.
