Fodor's Expert Review De Silveren Spiegel
Despite appearances, this precariously crooked building near the solid Round Lutheran Church is here to stay: it's managed to remain standing since 1614, and it should certainly last through your dinner of contemporary Dutch cuisine prepared by talented young chef Yves van der Hoff, whose father owns the place. Inside "The Silver Mirror," wood beams, Delft tiles, and candlelit tables create a romantic mood in which to enjoy local ingredients like smoked Volendammer eel and roasted North Sea scallops, and expertly prepared meat plates like Dutch beef steak with potato mousseline and crispy onions. To sample a little of everything, opt for one of the three- to six-course tasting menus.
