I ate inside the restuarant. Lunch manu doesn't have much variety for you to choose. Food is high quality but came in a small portion. You might have to order a starter and main dish to make you full.

Great restaurant. A bit too expensive for what it offers (specially for the starters and the main dishes). However, the desserts are all amazing! (Too expensive too though). The best is by far it's location and terrace.

Though it was a fairly limited menu, the food was pretty good. We had the catch of the day, and the beef shoulder which on the recommendation of the friendly waiter, and were not disappointed. The fresh fish went really well with the lovely mash, whilst the beef shoulder was grilled to perfection with a lovely pink center. Place fills up pretty fast, so I would advise making reservations to make sure you have a lively table by the water.

Wonderful surroundings. The most typical dutch village. We had deinks and planks. All good. Not overpriced. The restaurant is beautiful inside. Bring there friends from abroad!

Food was good and the setting was lovely looking out over the river.
However, the waitresses were not attentive and we would’ve had drink refills.
There is only one ladies toilet and we waited in a long queue.
Other than this, I would totally recommend.

I have been to the Zwarte Walvis on several occasions over the last 30 years, but alas, the quality of cooking has become more and more dissappointing. I fear that this was my last visit. The smoked zalm was too salty although this could be down to me as I use little salt, but the pidgeon breast was inedible. The waitress did offer to bring a new dish, but as everyone in my party had finished their course, I declined.

We had catch of the day, oysters, steak and burgers. With the exception of catch of the day which we thought was good, the rest were mediocre. Nonetheless, the scenery made up for the lacklustre cuisine.

I'm sure this restaurant is well worth a visit, but I didn't actually dine there. When I phoned them on the evening of my booking, they had no record of it. In fact, they were fully booked by travel company. The moral is, don't bother with The Fork, just make your booking by phoning a restaurant directly.

Een geweldige avond, heerlijk keuzemenu met onze AHbonnen. Mooie herfstgerechten, verrassende smaken! En dit alles in een fantastische setting! Uitstekende lieve ontspannen bediening!

I have been here several times and the server and food are always consistently excellent. This time we went as part of the AH actie and I was pleasantly surprised that the restaurant were able to maintain their food and service level. We were served an amuse and had a choice between two starters (tuna proverij or steak tartar) and two mains (fish or lamb) with a sorbet to cleanse the pallet in between. Dessert did not offer a choice but was amazing and looked almost too good to eat. It was all tropical fruit flavours. We had the bonus of going on a warm evening and were able to sit outside by the water which was lovely as the sun went down.
We have also had a private dinner here the night before our wedding with 20 people in one of the private dining rooms upstairs and it was an great evening and really impressed our international guests.
