Everything was good and the restaurant is amazing. The interiors are perfect as they were and the waiters really kind. Maybe from a first class cafe, I expected to have more A first Class menu, and not a plastic one and same for what we ordered, that was all good, but not a “First class” menu.

We recommend! Extravagant ambience and very nice staff. As the first guests who booked this event through GyG, we received a great gift. I hope that subsequent guests will also get a little goodie. The food was delicious with a very large selection of dishes (including vegan food). You could put together your own 3-course menu. The portions were generous. Especially recommended for train travelers when arriving or leaving. However, the "Centraal Station" is very easy to reach by public transport from the entire city.
