Excellent food and drinks. The service staff was helpful and give good recommendations. I suggest to go for the three course set menu. Good quality and cost.

Great food, several 'proeverijen' available. This way you can try nearly all appetizers and deserts in one go. Great for people that have a hard time choosing! Friendly staff, cute location!

We were there with 3 people on a rainy Thursday and were able to enjoy the midweek menu for 30 Euro each. This menu is available from Tuesday until Thursday and contains a smaller selection from the regular menu. We had a starter with a variety of starters from the regular menu in small portions which was excellent. Main courses... More

Went here with friends as our first choice was not open on Sunday. Very pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff (not too intrusive), the great mixed starter and the fabulous main courses (venison, beef and fish) we had. The deserts were not great but okay. Bit of a shame as it would otherwise have been worth an 'Excellent' rating. They... More

Had the most enjoyable meal here in Gouda. Fabulous balance of flavours in all dishes and superbly presented. Excellent service and real value for money especially for a top end restaurant. Do yourself a flavour and book a table!

We visited with a big group and had a separate room for us. The service was very friendly, the food was great and well presented, and the wine was delicious. Perfect place for our annual family gathering. Thanks and compliments to all staff at 'Bij ons'.

Very nice restaurant in the heart of the citycenter. The restaurant is upstairs, so don't be fooled if there is nobody in the small bar on the ground floor. The food is excellent, great flavours. Great choice of starters or enjoy them all in a big platter. Main courses we had a delicious duck and great catch of the day.... More

Tucked away down a side street this gem of a restaurant should rate much higher on T/A. Service is polite, efficient and friendly but quite discreet. The food from Amuse bouche to dessert was really very very good and refreshingly different from much of the "traditional Dutch offerings" which tend to be rather same old same old. Here were dishes... More

We chose this restaurant from a few researched on TripAdvisor and very glad we did. The table we choose was out doors in the alley and although the tables weren't level it did not detract and given the hot weather it was a very pleasant place to be. There looked to be about 10 tables inside and upstairs but everyone... More
