The restaurant as we walked in looked charming and inviting. We ordered an aperitief and promptly it came. Few minutes later the friendly waiter brought some delicious soup (courtesy of the house and bread). We took the 44euros menu, where you can choose a starter,...More

This family owned ((20 years) restaurant is an absolute gem. Father and mother prep and create food, while daughter Niki serves. The cosy welcoming room handles just 14 covers or so, meaning service was spot on and very friendly.

Really enjoyed this small, cozy restaurant located about a 20 min walk from the central Burg/Markt square. Interior room with fireplace, orangerie and outdoor private garden, all attractive. Chef is papa, servers are his daughters (I believe). Food was in the classic French style but...More

Het Zwaantje is very excellent dining, at a small very nice restaurant, with equally excellent service. Go there if you want to have a gastronomic evening.

This restaurant is on the periphery of the city but still only 15 minutes walk from the main square. Because it is outside the "tourist zone" it is frequently missed by tourists. The restaurant is family run and serves an excellent selection of exquisitely prepared...More

Because we were over the moon during our last visit to this restaurant we went again, having something to celebrate. Unfortunately we had to find that the euphoria of the last visit was no longer justified. The people are still extremely friendly, no worries here....More

This was a really enjoyable experience. Although the food has to be the main star, (it was!) - this family run restaurant had all the other ingredients for a superb evening. Music was restrained, lovely white crisp tablecloths, limited number of tables inside - but...More
