Yes! Experience what it is to be served with a personal touch while the place is fully occupied by food and fun lovers. Great wines, seriously good food. Very nice people, staff and guests :) Don't be scared about joining a large wine table while waiting. Enjoy!! Will definitely come back :)

Visited in December. Really enjoyed the local 'zuurvlees' which is a stew that comes with fries. Excellent value for money.

If I would have dreamed about a place it would have been this one. Nothing to say. Only negative is if it s exceptional. You have to wait to get a table. The food is really outstanding especially considering the amount of people there are here tonight. What is amazing is that there is not much to do to improve.... More

A very nice place to be, we where seated outside after waiting for 15 minutes with a glass of wine. Most dishes are local (good to very good) rabbit fish and also a kind of goulash all of them served with hand made french fries and home made mayonaise. I would recommend to go for the Local dishes and the... More

If you are looking for a local restaurant, this is a good choice. It's famous for this kind of goulash but made with horse meat. It's quite easy, you can go there and select one of the different options of the menu or ask to the waiter to suggest you. We took the horse meat and the catch of the... More

Small cosy place, where they serve very nice typical regional dishes. Cannot reserve so you have to be on quute early to get a table especially if you are with a larger group.

On a Friday at 8pm, the place was packed with people seated and standing, with busy waiters weaving among diners, punters and revellers. It was pretty unlikely therefore that we would get a table, but the warm buzz made us more than prepared to wait the hour that the waiter forecast. We were ushered to a spare bit of the... More
