I like this place for two primary reasons. The first is better service than most restaurants on the same street; staff was quick and attentive, and had a positive and friendly approach. Other places in the surrounding area are plagued by lazy and unengaged people. The difference is quite noticeable. Secondly - the menu is more or less competitive in... More

This cafe looks very nice from the inside. If you fany the fancy, this is where you should hold on. The food is good, but quite expensive too. It seems like you have to pay the staff for a smile as well, cause they show it rarely to you.

Enjoyed lunch here. It's a nice location overlooking the canal. We had toasties and a smoked salmon salad. All were fine but nothing special. Salad could have used more dressing. Coffees were good. Staff friendly. Overall good but nothing to make it stand out.

My girlfriend and I stumbled into De Stadthouder and were really hungry. Though I don't normally order hamburgers while abroad, I did this time. Well, I have to say that this might have been the best burger I've ever had. The patty was juicy and flavorful, and cooked to perfection. We really enjoyed our visit.

Nice place by the canal. We stopped for a coffee and a toast. The prices were reasonable and the staff polite.
