This must be one of the few places that has an internal frontage where smoking is allowed. Maybe the rules in Holland are different I do not know. The food was ok certainly not spectacular. The service was excellent. Overall it could benefit from a really good clean up rather than complete revamp. There is lots of competition so the... More

Came here for lunch. Had a "classic burger" which tasted good, but the patty was over cooked, if you can ask them for the heat you want it. The service wasn't very fast and the servers were super friendly. I was definitely satisfied after the meal. Reasonably priced.

The decoration and furnuture had seen better days but was not filthy or something like that. I had the bordje boulevard 8,25 euro (3 plate boulevard) with... More

We left our hotel in search of an affordable and filling Sunday Brunch. We found a lovely brunch at the Big Bell at a more than reasonable price. We had real scrambled eggs, toast, rolls, donuts, salmon salad, smoked eel, cheeses, meats, yoghurt, fruit and more. The price of 12.95 included two drinks each and the orange juice was freshly...

We chose this place for dinner on the beach side and were really impressed with hte service and the food taste, despite we usually being asian food lovers. The spices, flavours and taste was good and yummy with every bite! The live music was icing on the cake with some great numbers sung during our visit!

We have ben here many times for lunch in the past and that was always very good with friendly staff. This time we wanted to have a drink after dinner with our grand children. They had a live band with a very good singer and we enjoyed that very much, also our grand children liked the music.

We rolled off the overnight ferry very hungry and were so pleased to see this place open when everything was closed and deserted. We had hot chocolates, orange juice, amazing pancakes and a toasts sandwich. All were delicious. Unusual decor but cosy and inviting. Great

Nice Restaurant and good food. We loved the fire spots inside. It was so cold and windy outside, so this was quite perfect. We had a nice evening.
