Dont come in this restaurant, u waste money, time and food isnt good. We order lunch and also one child meal for our 3 yeahr old son. I show with finger two times to the girl waiter which kids meal i want. On the end...we pay the price as a large plate. The waiter after my trying to find solution dont were kind, take ours money and leave us. We also please for one chair more, they dont bother bring him. We wait for order long time, and on the end the meal dont were tasty. Dirty table after a guesst front of us, cokolade were everywhere, but the waiters do dont matter, they give ours lunch on the dirty table. We travel around the Netherlands, we try lot of restaurants and this one were the worst experience. It made us bad feel of the visit the city Gouda and please dont comw here.More

When I arrived it could be seen that there were a lot of pigeons just walking under the seats and so on. Of course they want to eat, I am a bit afraid of pigeons so this was not so nice. They don't bother you,...but can be annoying. The staff was very friendly and I ordered cheese sticks. It took a little longer, but it was very tasty. A number of umbrellas also fell over and the staff had to clean them up in the torrential rain. I have enormous respect for this. So if you compare these points with each other, it was doable.More

The view was amazing but I had a higher expectations for the food. Though it wasn’t bad in general. Waiters were very friendly.

Nice place to sit and watch people in the market. Sizes are large for the price. Service can get slow during busy times Overall well worth a stop and relax

We visited Gewoon Gouds as we had been travelling and needed to just pick somewhere and settle in. We were really glad we picked this place. The staff were friendly and helpful as we had a pram with us. We had a great table and...there were blankets and attractive flame heaters which made a nice warm atmosphere. The square was busy with a market and there was music playing (this was a Saturday). We ordered food which was delivered quickly and this was extremely good. No complaints whatsoever. I had cheese soup which is a top recommendation. The overall experience was very good and good value as well. We would love to go back sometime as this restaurant and Gouda square were the best start to a family holiday.More

As a first timer in Gouda, I am glad we ended up at this restaurant. The food was great and the service was amazing. The staff is very attentive and very friendly. We enjoyed our dinner and especially the dessert (waffles with strawberries, chocolote sauce...& whipped cream🤤) immensely!More

Stepped here for light lunch. Cheese platter and wine. The staff was very generous and divided the cheese platter in two, we had two glasses of wine and a bottle of water and expresso. Very nice and gentle staff. Final price 30 Euros. Great choice....Highly recommend.More

I was actually doubting between 3 and 4 points for this restaurant. Finally I chose for four points because the service was good, the location is nice and the food is very decent. For 25 euro you can get a three course menu that is...very decent. The carpaccio was not that great in my opinion but the spareribs where very fine.More

We were met by a friendly waitress and promptly seated. Our drinks order taken and served pretty quickly. They have a great variety of meals to chose from and we all opted for the €25 special where you get a starter, main and dessert. Excellent...value for money and the food was really great. We didn’t have too long to wait for it either. Suggest if you eat here to go a bit earlier than normal eating time as it is very popular.More
