It is 1647 in the area known as Over Ouderkerk,
When the first farmsteads were sold by Pieter Meffert.
Though because of the modern Transportation of boats and horses over the river ( The Amstel), he saw opportunity in Public Houses, better known as Taverns.
This was exactly what the people wanted and needed.
In 1702 he was ready to rebuild his current establishment and in 1709, received its official title of Hostel.
It was the start of a rich history of one of Hollands most famous restaurants. Meeting, dining, sailing by... people are doing it for centuries.
