Reviewed 26 November 2012

Went here twice in a short space of time. Encouraged by the first experience, which I would have awarded 5 out of 5, the 2nd visit was a disappointment. So the 3 out of 5 scoring is the average of a 5 followed by a 1. Food was great on both occasions, but service - great the first time round - was pretty shocking the 2nd time. Can only describe it as 'disinterested'. Had to try and get the waiter's attention for things as simple as getting a menu (you'd think that handing a punter a menu after he sits down is a pretty basic thing you'd do without the punter having to ask?), and similar when I wanted to order a drink. Was going to order a dessert but didn't bother in the end.

whilst having a wander around Utrecht with lunchtime fast approaching, we saw this restaurant and went in. seated immediately by a very friendly waiter overlooking the canal below the window. we ordered drinks which arrived promptly and then placed the food order - which arrived after a short wait. excellently prepared and very fresh. there is a small outside terrace just overlooking the canal, but it was very busy when we were there, so we had to stay inside. certainly worth a visit for lunch.
