The restaurant is situated in a very old captain's house and the interior has a typical Hindelooper style (Frisian).
The tiles are interesting to see. At the front, in the fireplace, are tiles with biblical scenes, including where you can find the texts. There are more tiles of the old-fashioned style. The sport is to find the original tiles.
Original tiles, those that are really really old, can be recognised by a tiny hole in opposite corners. They were separated by a nail during the firing in the kiln. Newer tiles (although even the newer ones can be 50-100 years old) do not have these. If you visit, try and find the original centuries-old tiles! Let me know and I'll tell you if you are correct :-)
Favorite Dish: The cuisine here is French-Dutch. Main courses are between € 15-22.
A 3 course menu amounts to around € 25.
We only had tea and wine here. The wine was commented on as excellent.

We were leaving the center of Sneek when I spotted this building. Old and rundown, the paint and plaster bladdering off. Then I noticed the text on the side of the building saying: Bros Metz, Plasterers. Poor guys, little would they know when they had their business in the early 20th century (the lettering is Art deco), that their premises would look like this, about 100 years later!

In some Frisian villages they still maintain the principal of not working on a Sunday, which means that everything is closed.
It might be a good idea to get some food and drink in supermarket on Saturday. Just in case.
Something I didn't think of myself. After cycling around for an hour and getting very hungry we found one restaurant that was open. The food was terrific but then the bill came.......

This street sculpture is not only nice to lighten up the street, it also shows a bit of life in the old days (1841). The guy is a travelling merchant who sells textiles, ribbon and buttons and the Frisian woman with the geese is buying. The travelling merchants often came from as far as Belgium.
The plaque says this sculpture was donated by C&A Netherlands. The famous textile concern (also well known in Germany and elsewhere) of the Brenninkmeijer family. They count as amongst the very richest of this country. If I'm correct, the richest even!
In Frisian the plaque also says De Friezinne en de omreizgende lapkepoek, anno 1841.

Favorite thing: Sneek is my favourite Frysian city. When you're walking in the old city centre you will find places for a drink or snack everywhere. I like the atmosphere.
