Busy place, filled with locals and tourists. Service could be faster, but in general was quite good. A bit expensive, but you get a good meal for the price you pay. The ribs and ravioli were very tasty.

Had a delicious lunch on a rainy winter day in Alkmaar. The menu is anything but ordinary. We shared a grilled goat cheese & fig chutney sandwich and cheese soup. There are English menus if asked for. The selections are limited and unique.
