This seems to be a restaurant usually patronized by locals and not tourists, although it is on the market plaza. The food was good. Beer was great. Service was great and friendly.

Chef's special is quite good, seafood, shrimp soup or something. Its location is okay. Its easy to find if you meet up with someone. The atmosphere is cozy. Chefs are cooking in the restaurant where you can see and smell it. Some menus smell really really good.

Old cafe built with good foods, good value, place in the centrum near the beach, Historical Museum, shopping centres, shops. The menu start with €20 euros, tosti and bitter ballen are a good choice for brunch with beer. Good place to hang out even in Sunday.

Visited this restaurant with my family and we had a great lunch. The waitresses were very friendly, the food was very nice. Choice is limited at lunchtime as they mainly offer sandwiches and other meals based on (very tasty) bread. There is a broader choice at dinner though. Nice looking place with great food and friendly service.

Went there by chance on a stroll through the quaint city, with my wife and daughter, after visiting the dolfinarium. We were favourably surprised by the good food and very good service. On such a nice terrace in a touristic surrounding quite remarkable.

Visited the Boterlap recently and could not believe the change. Did not have time to eat but the food looked good. Had drinks and found the staff helpful and friendly. It has been 18months since we last visited and it has been enlarged and modernised although they have still kept the character in the original old bar,
