I have eaten several times at ML, and it was always a great experience. The restaurant is set up in a historical building which - together with the atmospheric interior - gives the place a nice ambiance. The staff is kind and professional, giving good explanations and advices on food and wine. The food is prepared with mostly local -... More

We had long wanted to try this restaurant as it had a star and was also a JRE member. We had eaten in other JRE restaurants and found the price quality ratio to be high. We took the opportunity to go during one of the many Dinner Weeks that take place. This meant we had three courses for 40 Euros... More

High quality ingredients and pleasant surroundings were let down by third rate service. Waiters seemed intent on galloping noisily around while barking at foreign guests (who actually speak Dutch -YES we do exist!!) in far from perfect English. This was exemplified by their insistence on calling the menu the card. Food was fussy and little effort was made to balance... More

I have been to several 1 star restaurants and I must say the experience (both food and service) with ML is the least favorable one. It's unusually hard to not impress me with amuses, and they did. The amuses were not impressive and they were not even memorable. I had recently also been to De Bord'eau in Amsterdam and was... More

We went here with 18 family members to celebrate a special occasion and took a 4-course menu, which was delicious. We had a separate room for us at the 1st floor, this is very comfortable. Service was just perfect, could not be better. The waitress anticipated all our needs, came very politely with practical questions / suggestions on how to... More

Together with family from overseas we enjoyed a really superb lunch and accompanying wonderful wines.The ambience in this restaurant is created with a combination of modern furnishing in a historic 17th Century monument. It was actually rather nice to see two young women walk in with a baby in a pram and also settle down for a relaxing lunch. The... More

My wife and I had dinner at ML during the restaurant festival week which means an all inclusive meal for a set price. Considering this a bit of a marketing ploy, we did not set our expectations too high. We were however impressed by the attention we received from the staff, the creativity of the cook and the selection of... More

We went to ML during restaurant week. The food was delicious, with a wide variety of exciting courses. The only detail that could be improved is we thought service was quite slow for a restaurant with a Michelin star. In general, waitstaff were friendly and professional, and the atmosphere was quite cozy and comfortable (not snobby). All in all, we... More

It was not the first time we came @ML but the first time with a relatively large group (9 persons). The service was not that fast but we had time to enjoy the different tastes. The service was really nice with thoughtful (one of us was allergic to nuts and peanuts and had a special treatment) and friendly people. As... More
