With the background of a magestic sunset, a calm ambiance and efficient service we sailed thru a very inovative menu with full satisfaction.

Absolutely fantastic food and amazing service. The chef suggested various courses for us all of which turned out to be delicious - especially the mushroom truffle soup and the beef casserole! Very convenient if travelling to the airport which is about 10 minutes away. Can't wait to go back.

Came here to celebrate our birthdays,and we wern't disappointed! Glorious weather and we sat on what has to be one of the most beautiful terraces in The Netherlands overlooking 'de Poel' (lake) in the sunshine. The food was fantastic and the wine arrangement left nothing to be desired. A wonderful meal and we will return for other special occasions.

We reserved an outside table at this restaurant on one of the hottest days of the summer. In the afternoon before our visit the staff called to confirm our reservation. We confirmed and because of the nice weather we specifically asked again for an outside table, which was said to be no problem. Upon arrival we were asked if we... More

What a place, the setting is nice and the food is really amazing! We had the chef's choice and it was just one delicious course after another, totally tailored to our particular likes and dislikes. The food also looked like a work of art on the plate. Well worth a visit.

What a great place! The food is delicious, with great creativity put into every course; the chefs pay attention to taste, texture and the use of seasonal ingredients. Very good value for money too. The staff was also very friendly and attentive - made every guest feel special. The decoration/setting is very nice too - sober but elegant, with ample... More

It was a great food experience. I was like eating a Van Gogh painting. It was a very tasteful piece of art. I would recommend it to anyone. Budget = upper end.
