Ideally placed on a pontoon at the edge of the channel, with a clear view and pleasant with a friendly.
The dishes are simple and the burger is noteworthy. Good preparation and very correct size.
A single fault the cooking is done without separation with the room and is eaten with the smell.

I would say this is more of a lunch place during the day & bar at night - but we had dinner here and it was great! It's right on the canal & beautiful. The sandwiches were very good and they were able to accommodate my gluten-free diet with GF bread and even small chocolate bars after dinner. The manager and other staff member were both extremely hospitable and helpful & spoke good English. I would definitely return here again.

First they told there was no place, just to discover immediately that two groups were leaving. Then they recommended two order the toast with ham an cheese because the kitchen was busy. I will never return.

Het spijt mij te horen dat uw bezoek niet is bevallen. Bij deze onze excuses voor uw ongemak. Omdat wij over een kleine ruimte en een nog kleinere keuken beschikken op onze boot is het soms erg druk en hebben wij soms niet op tijd door dat er een tafel vrij komt als er mensen staan te wachten. Het is echter een goed bedoelde regel dat wij bij grote drukte in de keuken vooraf van uw bestelling melden dat de wachttijd iets langer kan zijn en dat kleinere gerechten sneller voor u kunnen worden bereidt. Dit in verband met onze ruimtelijke beperking aangezien het op een boot anders is ingedeeld als in een groter pand. Hopelijk kunt u hier begrip voor opbrengen. Nogmaals excuus voor het feit dat u dit als vervelend heeft beschouwd.

Stopped here early on a Sunday morning bike ride from Den Haag. Located right on the water, this is a great place to sit inside or out, chill, and read the paper. I only had a Irish coffee, as it was very early Sunday morning, but I look forward to visiting for lunch or dinner one day.
