We met Dutch friends for lunch and were not disappointed with their choice of venue. The restaurant may appear a little formal but we found the staff friendly and the food excellent. The view of the Gothic town hall is hard to beat.

The food was decent but the service was awkward. First the waiter missed part of the order and then unpolitely told us that we didn't ordered those things. Then we ordered a dessert that never arrived, after 30 minutes we gave up and left
