For a quick bite or a drink this is the place to be. It used to be an inn in the 1700's. And it became famous in the 1900's when the painters of the 'Haagse School' discovered it. They stayed here for some time and made several paintings of Nieuwkoop and the surroundings.
Between 1980 and 2000 it was a disco. But since then they renovated it and it became a bar / restaurant. The building looks great and inside you will find some nice wall paintings depicting the Nieuwkoopse Plassen.
In chinese / indonesian restaurant Hong Kong there is always a table open. More people come to have a take-away.
The restaurant is very casual and build in what used to be a normal house.
The menu is fine and has some special chinese dishes we like very much.
The owner (Stanley, a chinese born in Hong Kong) is very friendly.
We come here very often, every time we don't feel like cooking.
The restaurant is open:
monday and tuesday from 16:00 - 22:00
and the other days: 12:00-22:00
Favorite Dish: - Any tie pan .
- Birdsnest (vogelnestje), a bowl filled with meat, chicken, shrimps and vegetables.
-The fishballs, but only when the chef is the screaming chinese one. ( You will instantly know, because you hear him shout)
- And if you want a variety of food the kantonese menu, which includes several cantonese dishes for a fixed price.
With our Belgian VT friends we had a 'rijsttafel' specially made for the occasion. A rijststafel is a selection of dishes with rice, nasi (fried rice) and bami (noodles).
Just a bit more classy, and a bit more expensive. The chinese food is good. But due to the price and the longer waiting time we donýt visit that often.
It is just not a place to take a quick bite when you donýt like cooking.
This restaurnat is more tuned to the tourist, who visit in the summer season. So it is closed off season on tuesday.
From 1 may to 30 september it is open every day. Opening times: 15:30 - 22:00.
We had lunch in this café-restaurant. I don't remember much, other than that the wrap I had was good!
