Fred is an extraordinary place. We went there with Dining with the stars deal. The restaurant generously exemplified its best shots. They were not being frugal on us whatsoever, for which the owner should be commended. The food was unusually unique, with creative dishes and flavors we've never had before. The wine and the atmosphere were great. We liked it... More

We had a 4 course lunch at restaurant FRED. Overall Excellent taste, good quality ingredients. Beautifull presentation. Service at the table was adequate and the meal was finished with the best chocolate desert we had this year. Last year we were not happy when we left the table at Interscaldes, but this year with Fred, "Dining with the stars" proves... More

Always dinner on Friday evening before we do the North Sea Jazz Fest thing. The Dutch, in their usual fashion, are alway very accommodating and offer great service. Unfortunately, this year Carlos Santana was playing at the AHOY on Friday evening so we opted for lunch at Fred's on Friday afternoon. Compared to dinner the year before it was ummmmmmm....kinda...

To start with the positives: I really liked the food and there was enough of it. I found service somewhat wanting, however. The sommelier did not provide any advice on alcohol when we asked for brandy, just brought us some and poured in the glasses, without even telling us which brandy it was. Our waitress smiled once during the whole... More

Based on the TripAdvisor reviews we booked a table for 2 on a Thursday evening after having found out that our first choice (In Den Rustwat, across the road) was fully booked. At Fred, there were only two other tables occupied. The interior is somewhat overdone in the daylight, but becomes cosier when the lights are turned on. Our general... More

Superb! Sincé the beginning the food, champagne and wine were excellent. The service is really good in terms of attention and guidance through the menu, although it could be faster (we stayed there for over 3 hours), maybe because there were not many waiters. They have this menu recommended by the cheff, but we wanted to try different things, so... More

Top experience at Fred. Recomendable are the wine arrangement, so you can fully enjoy the special choice of the sommelier. His comments on the wine were very original and informative. The choice was non-standard, but very good. We specially enjoyed the cheese assortment (50+ different cheeses) and the in nthe arrangement included 2 different wines with the cheese, to make... More

We had the best time here. The food was incredibly innovative, creative and delicious. 10/10 The staff were incredibly pleasant, cheerful and welcoming. The decor was of high class and the Matre D spent some time telling us amazing things about the restaurant - the price and materials of various features around the restaurant. We decided to dine A la... More

I believe that this was my first visit to a Dutch Michelin starred restaurant but I have been to plenty in the UK and elsewhere. This place compared well to the major city Michelin Stars I've eaten at. The service was very good considering that we were a relatively large group with our party's arrival being fragmented by traffic delays.... More

I try to go to a least one Michelin star restaurant in every city I visit, and I travel a lot! Fred, to me was just ok, when comparing to others. I ordered the 4 course tasting menu. It was evident that the chef was very capable and creative, but it almost seemed like each course was a little over... More
