Great summer garden, nice wibe, relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff. Food is ok, average, but also appropriately priced. They have a daily menu and I was intrigued by a heering dish some guests at a table nearby had, but unfortunately they ran out of it... Overall...More

We had dinner at De Werf on a warm summer evening, on the tetras. This spot is just fantastic. No other neighbor restaurants, just this one and only on a beautiful quote, with nearly no traffic. Really great. The service was a great pleasure, too....More

Known for it's creative concept, food and drinks. Sunny teras in summer. In winter you're welcome on the teras as well underneath a blanket and with a delicious warm chocolate milk. But go during the week. They are not always open in weekends.

Bistro in the city center situated close to the university, is ideal for students who want to have a coffee or lunch with friends. Big portions but relatively high prices as far as pasta is concerned. Good service run primarily by students.

We were unfortunate enough to try to meet here on a Thursaday evening. the place was crammed and there were even people outside waiting to get a table. The food is cheap and there are enough vegetarian options. And even though the place was packed,...More

With a kitschy atmosphere, this place is a safe choice. Dishes were huge and tasty, and the staff was very friendly.
