Especially for the spare ribs, we choose this restaurant. And it was bull's eye! Super yummy marinaded, right off the bone ribs. I got three reasonable racks, comes with chips (in Dutch: frieten) and a small bowl of vegetables. Personally I didn't like the yoghurt-garlic sauce but appearantly you can order it with different sauce. Merlot wine was tasty aswel.

We have chosen this restaurant by the recommending by tripadvisor. And it worked out! We ordered the classics "chickenwings and spareribs" and "saté". The saté was a little bit small (one stick) for the price, but it could be it felt small by comparing it by the wings/spareribs> that was lovely! The bones and meat was easy splittable, Well done!...

The ambiance of the restaurant is good. The food is resonable but not very special, but the value for money is good.

De Buurman seems to be the only restaurant in downtown Heerenveen that is consistently busy every night. The building itself is welcoming and has just the right feeling for a Dutch café restaurant. The menu has plenty of choice and over half a dozen or so visits, I've yet to have a bad meal whether it was the simple but... More
