Fantastic landmark building, excellent interiors, offering an ideal atmosphere for a meal or drink right on the river. Service is professional and prompt. We were here on a brief weekday business lunch, I had the salmon wraps (poached salmon wrapped with potato-salad and various herbs) served with smoked salmon on a green salad. It was very tasty and at around... More

Had 3 meal course; it's great value. I thought the food was nice, nothing special and the staff is very polite. The building is nice and if you like classic venues, you'll enjoy zalmhuis!

Never been to this part of South Holland. After a family visit, a niece recommended to see at this place. WOW, such an amazing looking building. Truly from the bygone era but when I asked the manager, he said it is a actually a copy of a much older building that was burnt decades ago. Not only beautiful but the... More

We had diner at 'zalmhuis' on a Wednesday. It's a very beautiful venue and the view of the river is very nice (ask for a table at the window!). You can choose three courses for 29,50, which is definitely not expensive. We really enjoyed our food. As a starter we had raw fresh tuna (which was delicious and very tender)... More

The location, décor and architecture are fabulous. Great ambience, very stylish. Have eaten there many times but as other reviews say, the food looks interesting on paper but not top class on the plate. However, the ambience makes for it all. Worth a visit. Prices are not excessive although not mid-range either.

Haven't been here for a while. The food they serve now is very ordinary. Taste is not particularly fine. Portion of day menu is very small. Only a small piece of fish. Fries they served has been fried several times according to the dark colors. Beside this it has no taste. My smoked salmon came with lot of unions and... More
