We've been visiting Sneek for a weekend and enjoyed having dinner at this restaurant on both nights! Not because there were no other restaurants in Sneek, there are some! But because we wanted to eat this delicious food again. The place is nice, not tooo big, excellent service, good wine list and very good food. We had the 3 course... More

We ordered the fish of the day, baked with a sauce hollandaise. It arrived well done and accompanied with baked potatoes. The Sauvignon wine was just right : dry and fruity. Friendly service, nice atmosphere, overall a very pleasant experience.

I have been here one time. It's a bit expensive, but really worth it. The food was amazing and you could see the kitchenstaff really put an effort into it. It's a good place for a date or with close friends. Good service.

Picked this place due to proximity and T/A reviews. Despite the menu being only in Dutch & German our waitress explained it all to us and was very patient.....as you'd expect. Service was prompt, perfectly charming and attentive, absolutely no complaints. Several of our party chose the smoked salmon starter filled with shrimp with the rest of us taking the... More

Visited the restaurant with a group of 9. The waiters were very, very, very kind. Besides that they were very knowledgeable about their menu and wines. The food was quick and good. They have a very nice garden were you can have lunch/ dinner.

I visited Sneek in March this year and reviewed this restaurant. So I went back this September to see if the March experience was an anomaly. It wasn't, again the food was spectacular. The service first class and the ambiance still firmly in place. It's a " must go" if you visit Sneek.

The service is very good and the food offered of excellent quality and in more then sufficient quantity... We were seated in the small garden outside as the weather was excellent. Lucky for us because inside the music was a bit... More

We are at this Restaurant the other day and probably had the best meal (and we had plenty of really good food) in Sneek. We ordered the Chateau Briande and OMG it was sensational, the sauce was prepared at the table and was exceptional. The service was equal to the food. You would do yourself a disservice if you visited... More
