had meals a couple of times, good atmosphere, though a bit crowded for the indoor space; good cooking and price point; bad service from 1 waiter, too arrogant, and judge you from your skin colour

We really liked this place. The food was great, and their terrace is so lovely. The staff members were friendly and welcoming.

The restaurant is located in a really nice spot; however, particularly, I did not find they have an interesting menu for lunchtime.

Terrible experience regarding service. My partner and I waited for close to an hour before our waitress decided to cut her lively chat with her friends and take our order. Total waste of time and money. Will not return, will not recommend. Food is also...overhyped online. Nothing great about it, it's just ok.More

I visited this restaurant a few days ago with my wife for dinner, and despite not having a reservation, after waiting for 30-40 minutes, they managed to find a place for us. It is a beautiful and trendy place for drinks and food, located close...to the city center and the city park. The service is friendly, professional, and fast (despite the number of people dining there). I sincerely appreciated the fact that they are direct with the waiting times and don't promise something they can't do. The food is beautifully presented, well prepared, and moderately priced (if you consider the restaurant's location and reputation). There is a nice variety on their menu, and I can't wait to revisit it and try the other dishesMore

Great restaurant, great staff, tables outside, which is good because of the pandemic. Reservation it's possible on the website. I've ordered a tradicional Zuurvlees, never tried this before to compare, but for me was amazing. Recommend!

This is a popular place. We did not have reservations but they managed to seat us on the terrace within a few minutes. Service is confident and professional with a nice southern touch. The food is good as well. We especially liked the starters, 'artisjok",..."venkel" and the croquet's, criticised in some previous reviews but we thought they were great. The Dutch Pinot Noir we had was also great. You can tell people like to come here. Next to the food and drinks, Sjiek is also to see and to be seen, but in a pleasant way. At least, that's how we experienced it. We had a great evening here on the terrace.More

We made a reservation with this restaurant as our first place to eat after being on lockdown. We were looking forward to the meal and reading the menu with anticipation but our excitement soon hit a wall. When we arrived the situation with table reservations...seemed to be confused and it took 5-10minutes for us to be seated. In a busy moment this is normal but what happened after made us feel invisible. We waited for 20 minutes before a menu was offered to us or even a drink order taken, meanwhile we watched our waiter bring aperitifs to other couples still waiting to be seated. We also watched the distance between diners shrink as time went by...not very safe! When we finally got the menus we ordered and were quickly served but our appetizer never appeared. We had to flag down our waiter to order a bottle of wine otherwise we would have had nothing to drink. The food was okay but the steak felt more stewed than cooked. The eating experience did not redeem the service. After waiting another 20 minutes for the bill we managed to get outside and found the rain to be more pleasant than the restaurant.More

It is too good to ignore! Do go and try to book in advance, though the waiting room with seafood and excellent wine worth all the time. Enjoy!8
