We have been several times to this restaurant and we had again great experience. We choose the surprise menu with fish dishes. The taste was super as the quality. The quantity balanced on 4 dishes. Location great: our table was at the window on the waterside. Atmosphere warm and service also very good.

This retaurant serves so called small dishes for € 12,50 a dish. We all had 4 dishes and that was more than sufficient. Since it works out quite expensively, we opted for the chef's choice of 4 dishes for € 38,-, which is much better value and we were allowed to exclude ingredients we do not like. The food was...

The restaurant is very well situated beside the Oude Rijn, next to an old picturesque sawmill. Sufficient parking in their own car park. Friendly staff (mostly female) greet you as you enter and show you to your table, all with a good view of the water. There is a large terrace should the weather be kind enough to sit outside...

We went last winter, my first as well as last visit to this place. Great location, lot of part-time staff who seemed totally unaware of the need of their customers. Waiting time between three tiny courses was at least 30 min, I felt utterly bored. This is why I do not like fancy restaurants. High prices, a lack of atmosphere... More

We had a four-course surprise menu from the chef. We forgot to mention that one of us is a vegetarian and we were all given meat for our first course. They not only replaced our vegetarian friend's appetizer, but they also replaced the rest of our group's, so we could all eat our appetizer at the same time. Everything else... More

This restaurant serves beautiful food in a relaxed atmosphere where there is also the opportunity to sit outside with views out over the water. The wine served complements each of the courses served. Attention to detail is what the food is all about. The restaurant is easy to find and there is ample parking at the location. Service is outstanding.

Coincidentally I had 2 different business dineers here within 2 weeks. I always find th elocation centrally located and practical to park. The view on the river is a definite plus. A good attribute is the small bar at the entrance where you can wait for all the gust to arrive and have an aperitif. The set menu is excellent,... More

We visited this restaurant for Sunday lunch. We ordered the 3 course surprise menu for a set price. The starter was pieces of smoked salmon on a bed of quinoa with pumpkin and feta crumbles. The flavours were wonderfully combined, but the quantity little. Thankfully some bread and butter were on the table. The main dish was a beef stew... More

If you didn't know where to find it, you might miss this superb restaurant just out of the downtown, but within walking distance. Situated on a canal with swans, homes, and kayakers, this very modern looking restaurant is part of a large windmill overlooking it. That's the look. The best news though is the food!!! A 4, 5 or 6... More
