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.

This friendly hotel and restaurant were very welcoming and charming. We had a delicious meal, fabulous sashimi to start and a delicious Guinea fowl after. Dessert was pineapple with bourbon and the other dessert was pecan pie. Throughout we felt well looked after and our...dog was made welcome too. The wines by the glass were also excellent, ideal when there are only two of you. A very good dinner while staying in a charming if touristy town. This hotel did not feel like a tourist trap at all. Everyone was so personal. Recommended.More

Good food and very friendly service. Typically local interior design. Lovely christmas decorations did the trick.

Absolutely awful experience. Made a reservation in advance, ordered 2 times beef and 2 times tournedos, all medium. We had 5 waiters the first 10 minutes, there seemed to be no coordination. Food arrived, one tournedos was close to raw. Was brought out again, came...back after 5 minutes, grilled way too hard. But still raw inside. Two beef steaks tasteless (the 1 star), service slow, but price high. No need to come back, ever.More

Went for lunch and food and staff helpful and very good. Went back next day for evening meal. But very poor service instead. Restaurant not busy and at least 5 to 6 staff, so no reason for very slow service. All doors and windows in...main restaurant closed so hot, but ac in bar area where staff were hanging out. This made the restaurant uncomfortable. Starter good but main meal cold veg and dry food. As if left under heater too long. Staff walked past my empty glass 3 times which i left at the end of the table and had to ask twice to get refilled. Staff no eye contact with other tables to check if anything needed when walking around. Saw similar experience was had by other diners. I reported the food issue and was told the kitchen would look into it. No response back.More

We had dinner on the restaurant terrace alongside a canal: beautiful setting. The food was excellent: fresh asparagus with hollandaise sauce, lamb roulade packed with flavour for starters, perfectly cooked rib of beef and pork rib for mains and all served by the most pleasant,...engaging waitresses. This is a high quality restaurant with fair prices.More

Table of 4 booked online to meet up with a Dutch cousin and her +1. I reminder email sent the day before was all in Dutch so had to use Google translate to find out if there was a problem with my booking! The menu...offered a range of options - 2 of us had the ribeye, one duck and one plaice. All consumed happily, wlthough we did have to order 2 baskets of fries as sides. The deserts were a difficult choice, so we shared a selction plate which was nicely sized and very nice The retsaurant was nicely laid out and cosy, and not too busy (though was a Tuesday night)More

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

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
