Came specifically for the mussels and YUM! The mussels were fresh and delicious and came in a huge pot filled to the top. I expected a smaller portion based on experience, but it was like I was eating out of a bottomless pot! Well worth the money.

We walked past this place, whilst on a walking tour in our guide book, as it was a recommended restaurant for authentic local cuisine. The restaurant is small, and has a great atmosphere, and the service is fast. The food is lovely, although a bit expensive, but it was definitely worth it.

This is a relaxed place with very good unfussy food. We loved the asparagus soup, which provided free in a little teacup. Thank you, much appreciated

My family enjoyed the rabbit stew and the pork cheek stew. Both were great, as well as the cup of carrot soup that they brought out as a starter. Unfortunately that was all we sampled since we were full from waffles and fries earlier in the day. I can see how it would quickly fill up, so if you truly... More

Came here on the recommendation of a friend, and we were impressed. The food was very tasty. Service was good. This is a very small restaurant--make advance reservations.

Very friendly service. The restaurant is managed and owned by a husband and wife team. The food is delicious and a large variety of beers are available on the menu. Not the cheapest but definitely recommended.

Loved this place. The young guy at Hotel Boterhuis had highly recommended this bistro and really glad he did. Fantastic food and just the sort of decor and atmosphere that we like. The food was excellent especially the sauces which were to die for. Went back for a second sitting we liked it that much.
