I was here with a larger group of colleagues and this might have influenced the quality of the food. It was a buffet without any imagination and particular taste. The cook was a nice person and helping out with dietary requirements, but the quality was just average... and overpriced.

I went here for a drink the chairs and tables are very modern and quite comfy and the whole feel is modern and open, the staff are very friendly. Sadly the bar closed too early and lacks a little atmosphere or buzz around the place

We stopped here on the way back to the bus terminal before we caught our return ferry. Staff were courteous and polite but not overly friendly. Restaurant area is very smart and the décor is gorgeously modern. Food looked nice enough and there is a good choice of seating - tables, at the bar or sofas. Very nice.

Been there for evening food and drinks. Inside it's quite pleasant, however staff is absolutely unprofessional - you have ask for menu for 3 times, waiter is helpless and what they call French onion soup is anything but it (cheese is on the bread aside!!!!) Unless it's just a business meeting with coffee, avoid. Typical low level tourist joint

We met here for drinks & bites in the evening with friends. Attentive staff, well served drinks and bites. Nice place, enough seats and also some private corners. Very close to Central station, so suitable for business meetings as well. Prices are ok.

The restaurant changed owners not too long ago and was completely renovated. It is an excellent venue for business meetings, but visitors can also enjoy the scenery from the terrace. The restaurant is open all day. Recommended for groups and families.

We came here as rooms near the station as rooms at the office were full. The location is excellent and service in the business area was excellent. The bar in comparison service was more typically Dutch and took us ages to get our drinks. We ordered food with our drinks and it took so long that we got a discount.... More
