Fantastic surprise.

we ate there during Christmas holidays and we all together agreed on one: this was for sure one of the best foods we ever had. Perfect service, nice designed and presentation and most importantly very delicious! Just notice that the place is not the cheapest :)

We have had a great evening. Good room down stairs close to the fire. Tried the Wagyu, but expected more taste. Wines are impressive but prices too serious. The staff could be less formal to make the impression even better.

Now, in the 21th century, the former hospital has turned into a very cozy, small-scale restaurant that serves high-quality meals. We came in by car and one of us was handicapped -... More

We went tot his restaurant last minute and found it on trip advisor. We were pleasantly surprised with the restaurant with the food and service. Only downside is that the weather was lovely and they don't have a outside to have drinks. Would visit again.

It's a small cosy restaurant, with friendly, knowledgable staff, and let yourself surprise, alternatively, make your choice. It's a very good alternative to the Librije and her sister.

Hi all, finally decided to start passing on some reviews considering I've been using all yours for years, so it's payback time. For work reasons we have been spending some time in Zwolle recently. Following reviews of the site we decided to try this restaurant and what an experience. Firstly the room, if possible ask for a table downstairs especially... More
