Very good food. Warm and illuminated terrace, which despite the rainy aura gave a sense of cosiness and comfort. Beautiful view of the town hall

Food and drink options. The view of the square is lovely and they have a lot of heaters outside to keep you warm. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Overall a good experience.

The day after candle night in Gouda I went here for a little drink with my boyfriend and an other couple. We went inside first while a sweet waitress found us a place outside.

Amazing Gouda lunch! A cheese soup and a cheese sandwich were both unforgettable! Accompanied with a glass of some sweet white wine on a warm sunny day in the heart of Gouda Old town... Highly recommend this cozy place! Service was also fast and friendly.

I ate here with a group of friends and had an enjoyable evening. The food was reasonable and the service was quite good. Even though we ordered food and a good few bottles of wine, they were very reluctant to serve any tap water.

In a town famous for its cheese they serve cheese soup, whic is surprisingly nice. Its like a bowl of cheese sauce and is very filling. You can chose from a wide range of different beers, but not much variety in wine.

At this side of Gouda market you will find a lot a restaurants / bars. Gewoon Gouds is one of them. The service is quite nice and food is of good quality. The terrace outside in wintertime is covered, so that is nice (especially for the smokers!) But at the end it is one more of the bars / restaurants... More

Me and my best friend went to lunch here. It was pretty good, though we couldn't here each other very well. It was crowded on the terrace, therefore noisy. But besides that we had a good lunch. The food was good and (for my fellow vegetarians) you can order a dish that isn't vegetarian and ask them to leave out... More

When it's sunny Gewoon Gouds has a nice spot in the afternoon/evening sun. The terrace, however, is often crowded and the restaurant's mostly indoors. Indoors there's no airconditioning and only 1 small window that can open. Result: hot hot hot. The food is not great, but you don't expect a whole lot more. Simple cafe meals. They have a menu...

Our overall experience was rather nice, the waiters were friendly and we didn't have to wait for long, even though the place was crowded. They served one of the best fresh orange juices I have had in the Netherlands and their schnitzel was quite good. But absolutely avoid the trout! It had no seasoning whatsoever and tasted like mud, the... More
