We did not have a great experience at the Waterhuis in 2003. The place was nearly empty when we arrived and had quick service of a beer and a snack. then the rain came and the place filled with locals. it was clear that the staff wanted us to move on to give up our table. i guess you need to be more aggressive.

we had the opposite experience at Galgenhuisje. good, not great selection, but excellent, freindly service both at miday and late in the evening. met some very cool locals who bought us a "house" beer (a brown made by van steenburg i think). had a great time there.

also, there was filming of a movie at the gravenstein castle which we did not know at first and were quite impressed at how "in to" the roles the various characters throughout the castle were. very funny when we found out what was going on and really sharp to see.
