Reviews on Trip Advisor have been very generous , we visited here on Thursday . Firstly there is no menu outside so you have no idea as to what's on offer or the price. Once inside the decor is very nice. My husband had a steak for his main, it was served with a jacket potato , I has cod... More

dear Sir, thank you for your review and your compliments for our service and food. When I read your review though it seems as if we charged you 117,45 euros for two mains and "a couple" of glasses of wine. Actually the 117,45 euros were charged for 2 starters, 2 main courses which come with potato, vegetables and a salad... More

A surprise find recommended by the receptionist at our hotel, in a less-than-salubrious location but the food was wonderful (according to our waiter, everything is "made with love" - his wife is the chef, so he should know!). Quite busy for a Wednesday night in a small town - there was one very large party having a family celebration -... More

We loved the food and wine. Unfortunately the street it's on looks a mess. Trash all over the place and construction on the water side. I would recommend the owner to update the interior. While I'm sure it's not visible when it's nighttime, but when light outside the wall paper with bricks and other campy details don't show the quality... More

We loved the restaurant! Food was to die for (esp carpaccio starter and desserts!). Out of the 3 places we dined at in Zaandam that was by far the best one! Lovely atmosphere and great service! Highly recommend this place

Most restaurants get stressy with groups of more than six people. Not the case here, we did call ahead but they are clearly used to it, like it and can handle it! We were twelve from 4 nationalities and had a great time relaxing after a long business conference.

We were two guys on a business dinner. We shared the Chef's special starter which was superb; one of the best starters I've ever had. Followed up with grilled prawns which came with a sour cream loaded baked potato and a variety of dips for the prawns - really tasty. Good wines by the glass. WiFi. Definite return place. €100...
