Restaurant is really beautiful inside. We had an impromptu party of 10 on a very busy evening, we sat right away. Our food was delicious and our waiter “Demo” super nice, prompt and friendly.

Not too expensive and food is good for the price you are passing. Looks great and has lovely seating outside on a great square. Great place to meet when the weather is good.

Me, wife, daughter and her (Dutch) partner came here after a couple of other venues. As with a lot of places tried in Leeuwarden it’s quite dark inside but does have a heated outside. Excellent beer, sharing platter and staff. Not the cheapest of places...More

We didn't eat anything there, just drank a beer but I really enjoyed the atmosphere. They have a big selection of beers. Staff was friendly. Located in the city center.

The big terrace invites you to stay outside when the weather is good. Inside you will find several room on two floors, a nice bar downstairs. You can have your lunch or just a Drink. The venue is in the middle of the town.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere but when it come to the food we were a bit disappointed. The service was very slow and when we finally received our meals they were just average and therefore a little bit overpriced in my opinion.
