Nice restaurant in THE centre of Garderen. Plenty of parkingspaces. We visited with a 1-year old. This was no problem. Also we didn't have a reservation, the my set a table for us. We had pancakes, they tasted very good.

We came here with 7 family members, 5 adults and 2 children, and we're very impressed with this place. The service was excellent as they accommodated us with our request of asking little time between the entree and main dish. The food was very well made and served. The children loved their pancakes, which were shaped like a cow. The... More

we met very friendly staff and were served pancakes in topquality for a group of ten guest. The Chefsteward arranged everything for our group with his friendly personal. Good place to stay for a break on a bycicletour for example, as we did.

Back after almost a year. Welcomed by host Wouter who pointed out the new planking menus. We took some original main courses but choose the desert-planking menu (all food being served on a wooden plank, see picture) Really delicious with fruit, pudding, ice and even some 'dropjes'-like additions (home made by cook Jolanda). Cool! Enjoyable evening and for sure on... More

If it's pancakes you're after then they are excellent too. Whatever you choose, it is good value. The staff are polite, attentive and great to chat to, they contribute to... More

There are some real negative reviews in this forum so we wanted to know and took the gamble. We have not been disappointed at all. O.k. it's a tourist focussed place but what else do you expect right in the centre of downtown Garderen? The atmosphere is right and so is the choice, the quality and the pricing. Service is...
