Full description
Upon arrival, you will be seated at a table in the old 1st class waiting rooms of the central station, dating back to 1889.  Admire the Lavish fin de siècle decorations found throughout this unique establishment, such as ornate floral scenes, wooden panels and intricate paintings. These paintings give the restaurant a sense of grandeur and elegance. One example is the two-humped camel visible above the impressive and extensive molding. You will taste 6 different types of croquettes and bitterballen while you enjoy a glass of Heineken draft beer, house wine or a soft drink. You will be able to try the following: veal bitterbal, Peking duck bitterbal, Thai Green Curry bitterbal, cheese arugula croquette, chicken satay croquette and shrimp croquette.  Our waiters will explain the different types and you will be given an information sheet. The result is an experience of comfort, style and quality.

The ambience of the restaurant is very nice. The service was very attentive and spoke German. The croquettes and bitter balls taste very good. Nevertheless, everything is an overpriced pleasure for about 16 EUR per person. The food and drink (6 small balls and 1 drink) were too little for that. We therefore didn't tip with a bad conscience, the nice waiter would have deserved it.
