Just next to the Waterpoort, this is a slightly posh restaurant (it looks like it, anyway). And a terrace outside. Service could be a lot friendlier though.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the tomatosoup, fresh brown bread.

Everyone in The Netherlands grows up with the works of Annie M.G. Schmidt. Her rhymes and stories are unforgettable.
She had a great influence on Dutch literature and language. I have described one of her books and a translated rhyme book (into English) in my Dutch literature travelogue.
Annie M.G. (as she is often called for short) was born in Zaltbommel. From her room she could just see the river Waal. In the photo it is the house with the little tower.
The black Jip and Janneke figures are a creation of artist Fiep Westendorp who illustrated her works for many years.
In a TV interview with Sonja Barend, she was asked what the secret to her great age was (accompanied with a clear and flexible mind). She took a draft from her cigarette and said: Lots of lovers and lots of smoking!
