Eating at this restaurant was the worst dining experience I've ever had in my 7 years living in the Netherlands. The vegetables were overcooked and bathed in salt, the potatoes were tasteless and the sauce over the meat tasted like it came straight out of a can. Even my two year old refused to eat the salmon (or any of the other food) as it tasted quite horrible.

I usually refrain from posting negative comments, but I realized others should be aware of my experience. When I had voiced my concern politely to the manager, he simply said something to the effect of "I'm sorry for you.", as if he couldn't be bothered. Before leaving, I asked him to taste the food himself and honestly ask him if he could be comfortable swallowing it. It was infuriating that he didn't try to suggest what he could do. I didn't come to the restaurant expecting Michelin quality food, but I did hope that it would have been a decent enough local eetcafe.

We could have better used the 60 euros spent on the horrible meal at the snackbar next door and would have come out a lot more satisfied. To be fair, the waitress was very empathetic to our dissatisfaction, actually doing a much better job than the actual manager.
