An elegant building in parkland delivers a spacious modern interior where attentive staff deliver an excellent dining experience. The menu is interesting and you can choose to have a 'surprise' where two starters and two main courses are chosen by the chef in slightly smaller portions. For this you are able to declare any dislikes! All our dishes were excellent.... More

The first part was a variety of 5 small war and cold dishes together with French fries. They all tasted delicious. Then we had a dessert wit a variety of small portions which tasted so good!...

Alfred's ambiance is warm, inviting, casual elegance. It has long been one of my favorite places in Alphen. Seated at a familiar table, feeling happy with anticipation, the new menu was delivered...the plastified monstrosity looked like it was designed by a child for a pizzeria instead of a restaurant. It took away my desire to even read it, let alone... More

Maybe being bias, but I used to work here many moons ago when the owners just took over.

Had a business lunch. They have introduced a new formula. We had 4 small dishes. Two appetizers and two small main courses. Chef's surprise menu. Which tasted just great. The restaurant is located in a great park. Service was very friendly. I would recommend this to my best friends.
