Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Just imagine, sitting outside, on one of the canals of Holland, in the middle of the picturesque little town world-famous for Edam cheese... enjoying fantastic gourmet meal (no kidding!) watching few friends to stop by, hope off their paddleboards for some dessert... most friendly, most...relaxing. And every course is most sophisticated for your palate. We took multicourse meal with matched wine and we couldn't be any happier. The matchings were done very well and the presentation was beautiful. Everyone was completely fluent in English.More

Evening meal. Friendly staff, great location outside by canel. Food very good and I think a good price. We were really pleased with our choice and would go back of in the area again. Hotel itself looked really nice. Worth checking out I think.

I went with two friends who live in Edam, on their recommendation and it absolutely lived up to expectations. Reservation is important as it fills up quickly. We chose from the menu of the day and everything was delicious, starting with a glass of champagne...followed by wine proposed by the house.More

Beautiful town to walk through while looking for this location. A beautiful day so the garden was open and very busy. We self seated near the canal, a lovely setting right beside the canal. Slow service and felt time to table ratio was on a...strict budget by the waitress. We ordered a drink, just house wine and coffee and menus. I felt we put the waitress out of her way to go get them. I ordered smoked salmon salad and my husband ordered a sandwich. After eating we wanted another beverage while we enjoyed the setting but couldn’t catch anyone’s attention. Finally waved my credit card around until two gentlemen discussed that perhaps I needed attention. We could have left and I doubt anyone would have cared.More

It’s a special event, at a price. The setting, the ambience, the quality of the food and the attention to detail was a step up from the norm. The waiting staff were knowledgeable, friendly and polite without being aloof. The dress code was seemingly non...existent making it a very relaxed affair. However, service was slow and the menu short; proving particularly difficult to negotiate if vegetarian. A memorable place, a meal to savour but not for regular eats.More

We had lunch at Restaurant De Fortuna on a day trip to Edam from Amsterdam and had a lovely meal. The salad with smoked salmon was delicious, as (of course) was the appetizer plate of Edam cheese. The setting couldn't be more charming and beautiful—a...lush garden patio overlooking one of the canals. Service was very friendly. If you are in Edam, this is a great spot for lunch.More

Very nice place to sit along a small canal with a drawbridge. The staff were excellent and the food was very good. This is a hotel with a restaurant but did not stay in the hotel. Met the manager/owner. Very pleasant and helpful.

This place looks very attractive and although not all tables were occupied I was left waiting while later arriving guests got to order. Maybe a woman alone is invisible (although a couple also was annoyed by lack of service, being ignored while trying to get...attention). After my sandwich with sparingly layered cheese, I ordered a second coffee that was completely forgotten (but on the bill). Not a nice experience in another wise pretty setting.More

From the wild boar to the steak all cooked to perfection....The vegetables were also cook perfectly and with so much flavour. If your in Edam this restaurant is a must.More
