We wanted to celebrate a birthday and chose for this restaurant. Very special touch; gentle staff with explenation for beach dish. Nice wines and reasonable priced. All together a culinairy adventure reasonable priced. We were welcomed by the owner; outstanding service. All our wishes were respected (one couvert without fish and no porc)

We tend to go for the surprise menu and are always happy about the culinary discoveries we make. The presentation is fantastic, the dishes original and very, very good, and the decor classy. Great for celebrations and romantic dinners.

Good food, great service and good wine selection. The tasting menu varies from 3 to 6 courses, and there are several palette cleansers as well. Will be returning soon.

Service is all right, with good explanations of dishes. Excellent advice on wine-food combination (with the option of wine by the glass). Food comes in small portions, but imaginatively serviced and often rather creatively composed. Most is very tasty, some can be a bit artificial. When dining with a discount (e.g. Groupon), very good value for money. When dining a... More

I had dinner here with one of my colleagues. The restaurant was literally 2 minutes away of the hotel I was staying at so I could afford a good glass of wine since I did not have to do any driving. The restaurant sits nicely next to the water, unfortunately it was too cold to sit outside. We were greeted... More

This restaurant at the banks of the river Eem - the only river that springs in the Netherlands - is a haven for wining and dining. It is located in a recent extension to the centre of Amersfoort - a lovely small, ancient city in the center of the Netherlands. Our 6-course surprise menu was again a revelation. Unbelievable how...
