Frankly we did not give much chances to this place when booked. To our great surprise, it turned out to be a great setting with a calming view on the water; the set menu was creative and to my like had a lot of fish based dishes, we passed on desserts but took the selection of finest dutch cheeses. the...

For a special occasion we decided to splurge and head for a Michelin-starred restaurant. Tried well in advance to get one of the coveted window tables but ended up in second row. We had the 5-course Rive Gauche menu with matching wines. Food and wine was excellent, a culinary adventure that exceeded our high expectations. At our table, the polite... More

I'm not a very active restaurant reviewer, but this I just had to share. After hearing good feedback the price made me hesitate. Now I'm doomed and have to come back for more. The ambiance is classic and pleasant and the staff was polite and friendly. The tasting menu was absolutely great and we enjoyed some *fine* wines. It's an... More

After having a 5 course lunch at Bord'eau restaurant we settled late evening for La Rive. The six course menue, one for my wife, another for me, pleased us both. But I can understand that La Rive have one star in Michelin and Bord'eau have gotten the second star in November 2013. But la Rive is absolute worth a visit.

I ended up eating here on a recent business trip. My meetings the first day were nearby the restaurant and ran late, so a couple of us went there for a late supper. Even though near closing, they made us very welcome. The service was completely great in every way, and the food was delicious. The restaurant is very attractive... More
