Food and drink
On a recent dinner here, I had a delicious bouillon of squid, followed by an even better fricassée of broad beans, morels, asparagus and polenta - the restaurant makes a point of doing interesting things with veg - and home-made ice-cream. Lunches can be as simple as a bowl of soup or sausage sandwich, while for both lunch and dinner many dishes are available in half-size, half-price portions.
Quiet and civilised - when I ate here, most fellow diners were middle-aged locals. Distractions come from boats chugging past on the canal below, the work going on in the open-plan kitchen.
They're passionate about what they do here, and staff exude enthusiasm.
Though by a waterway, not exactly scenic - the setting, a 10 minute walk north-west from the Centraal Station, is modern urban.
Two-course lunches 15.5 euros; three-course à la carte dinners around 25-35 euros.
