Imko (the chef) is wellknown for his fish cooking and is most probably one of the best fish chefs in the Netherlands. So we were looking forward to a nice dinner. When we arrived in the restaurant we were promptly seated, drinks and a nice mackarel "gado gado" amuse was served. So far so good. Then we got the menu's.... More

An outstanding meal. Had a surprise tasting menu which included mackerel, which I normally dislike, and even it was tasty. Everything was fresh and creative, highly recommended.

I went to this restaurant with a group of 9 colleagues after visiting Vis en Ko with my wife late last year and having a fantastic experience. Maybe a bit risky to go back, as one often finds places never live up to your hype. No need to worry, my friends and I had a wonderful time. We had the... More

My wife and I tasted the sea fruit menu, it was amazing, beside the freshness of the sea fruits, service and presentation were impeccable and made the evening for us 1 to remember.
