Came back to this place after a long time, and enjoyed it again! The paella was tasty, more recommended than the bbq. Shrimp and meatball tapas were good too. The setting was lovely.
Food wasnt tasty, grill was very dry. Paella was bland Seafood wasnt fresh. No view to the lake because the strays grasses was so high and cover everything.
The small restaurant is situated at a great location, on the edge of the “Sloterplas”. We made a reservation but the table was not ready since it needed to be emptied first from the cleaned dishes that were on it. The order was taken quickly, but drinks took long to be served because the orders that were coming in for take away and delivery took up all the attention. Also the only waiter was busy with other guests that came in and needed to be seated in the small space, hard to keep all tables at 1,5mtr distance... The restaurant’s atmosphere is more suited for having a quick bite, since besides the view it has no spanish vibes whatsover. The loud “dance” music coming from the small open kitchen was quite annoying actually... We ordered 3 tapas dishes and the house special paella. The first tapas dish already took quite some time, but all the dishes after even took longer. A lot of the guests that came in after us got their dishes begore we did, but the worst part was that the waiter seriously asked us 5 times which dishes we had ordered... When the paella finally came it was clearly prepared in a haste, the taste was bland and the rice structure corny. The taste of the gamba’s in garlic oil was nice, but that is not the most complex dish to add flavor. The albondigas had a bland taste. All in all a disappointing experience, with no apologies whatsoever from the staff for all the delay in preparing the food. If the taste of the food would have been fabulous that would have made things a bit better. Unfortunately not worth repeating a visit.
We've ordered here before, and the paella used to be delicious, but last time we ordered it wasn't great. So, we wanted to try out the restaurant in person. The paella arrived lukewarm and the rice was bland. The seafood and meat was nice. Too much koriander for our taste though. The zarzuella arrived boiling hot and tasted great, however this is the biggest problem, the shrimp was not washed wel at all and had quite some sand in it. So, the entire dish had zand in it, which was quite unpleasant. Also, I think four slices of baguette is a bit meager for €18. Also note that no alcohol is sold at this establishment.
Nice staff, great food and good view of the lake with the fountain. Good size playground next to it and easy fiets parking. The portions are large and the food is fresh.
It was a small restaurant with a nice view of the lake. Ordered paella for myself and mixed grill for my husband. it was delicious. The portion was too big for me so the staff even asked me if I want to take it home. I can definitely recommend it.
Very good and tasty food. We went today for an informal business lunch and we enjoyed it very much! Very special! Will surely come back!
The starters were served with & after the mains were served. Kind of a bummer. We ended up eating only half of what we ordered, and most of the food got cold because everything came at once. BUT service was good. We were openly welcomed.
Although the actual food was good, everything else was disappointing. Glasses were dirty - Got the wrong order. (decided to eat anyway because it would take too long to wait for the right one) - The place doesn’t have a liquor license. The waitress seemed lost (but then again I don’t know if she was a waitress or someone helping out that night). Will not come back.
The food was great, we ate all of them up. It was a pity that they didn't have paella anymore tho, but the other dish didn't let me down at all.
The food was great and the service was also great!
Mix grill was a bit dry. Paella was really nice. but our food was too quickly cold, the door open all the time. We need to put on jacket indoor.
