The village is very close to Amsterdam. Beautiful landscape, clean and without the city's noise. The food was tasty, although I would expect it less expensive. Nice wine selection, but not large number.

After walking around this picturesque village we stopped here for lunch. The restaurant is situated on the bank of the river. There is a nice sitting area outside, but eating inside is just as good. The waitresses are very attentive. Their English is somewhat limited...More

Lovely food and service. One of our party has a serious gluten allergy and despite this all our food came out exactly as requested and delicious!

I had a wonderful lunch with a friend there, sitting outside in a lovely day. Loved the steak! It was tender and juicy. Service and food was wonderful. Looking forward to be there again.

The restaurant is located in Ouderkerk a/d Amstel overlooking the river Amstel. The ambiance is pleasant , the service good and friendly. We were given a table where we could talk business without disturbing the other guests.

Came along here to get some respite fro an evening in Schiphol due to an early morning departure. After a 20 minute bus ride on the 300 (service every 10 minutes fro the Schiphol bus station) a short walk brings you in to the village,...More
