ABOUT US AND AN IMPRESSION
The most delicious dishes and first-class wines. Leave behind the hubbub of the city….
Where it all started
The property ”De Voetangel” was founded around 1626, when it first served as an inn. Throughout the centuries, various tenants and landlords have ensured its continued existence. From the start of the 20th century right up until today, the family Leurs have taken care of it, guiding it through its various ups and downs. Around 1920, Rijk Leurs worked from the location as a sand and gravel skipper. In 1931, Driekus Leurs bought the inn and fuel trade business, whilst his brother Manus took over ship with the sand and gravel business. In addition, together with his wife Lien, Driekus opened a café and tea house in the inn. The son of Driekus, Richard Leurs, became the official owner of “De Voetangel” in January 1968.
With the fuel trade gradually disappearing, Richard and his wife Ans decided to make catering their main business. They managed to develop the restaurant into a thriving business, whilst staying true to their old principles: warm hospitality. Later on, in 1983, 2002 and 2006, radical renovations to the building followed. And in the present day, the 4th generation Leurs has made an entrance: daughter Conny and son Henk with his girlfriend Sabine.

Hospitality, delicious food, excellent service and beautiful surroundings in De Ronde Hoep.
Cosy restaurant, great terrace, private parking and also very accessible by boat. Not cheap. It is a great pity that they are closed on Sundays all year long, as a high number of (moped) cyclists pass by.
Great restaurant with a delicious menu. Just enjoyed a three-course lunch meal on the terrace, with accompanying wines, and polished off with a crisp Gin and Tonic. The staff were very attentive and everything was high standard. The terrace was full on this beautiful sunny day. Can recommend without hesitation.
Beautiful brasserie right next to the dyke. Very friendly waiters, perfect lunch. Great location to eat.
