We met Chef Jonathan as we entered with our Dutch friends. He was by the fresh herb gardens and spent some time talk about the eco-friendly, home grown atmosphere. The water flowing down the glass roof through the see through walls was amazing. Only out-done by the incredible vegetarian Pinkster meal that I was served. We had kids with us... More

As a vegetarian I normally do not have much choice on the menu. This place is different! Many delicious vegetarian dishes, all very very tasteful. Small dishes, so if you're not very hungry you choose two dishes, if you are hungry you can choose more, it's all up to you. Biological too. Nice wines, and the desserts are heaven! The... More

Vork en Mes is hard to find and very difficult to get to on public transportation but don’t let that stop you. The restaurant is unique with a wall of water at the entrance and a great lakefront location. I came with a large group so we were served a set menu. Everything was fresh and either raised on site...

We live in the neigbourhood and come there very often. The location is at a lake in "Haarlemmermeerse Bos". A very special building. Modern building with a great view over the lake. we had a table for two at the window. You can choose all kinds of small plates, but we ordered a menu of 5 dishes. A kind of... More

For me not enough choice for fish or meat. I am not a vegetarian. For vegetarians nice place with very acceptable prices. Lovely view on a small lake. Staff is a bit slow. Food arrives 45 minutes after ordering (small lunch). I was looking for a quick lunch, 45 minutes waiting was a bit long. Waitress came back 10 minutes... More

The food is very good, with refined and interesting taste combinations and prime ingredients. That places this restaurant in the top league. What makes it really interesting is the concept and drive of the owner of bringing sustainable food to customers, the restaurant business, and broader: the area around the restaurant. He grows all his own vegetables, has a 'more... More

Fururistic building. Small but very good dishes with a great view on the lake. Worth a visit for the building and the food.

This restaurant is located on a little lake, which makes it especially nice in the summer. The entrance (you walk through a waterfall) is also quite nice. More important though: the food is very, very good! Mostly organic and home-grown, presented in a creative way. Service is friendly.

We live close to this restaurant and we have been here many, many times and the food has always been excellent! We have always chosen the 3 or 5 course surprise menu's and the chef always uses local and seasonal produce and anything we don't like is taken into consideration. We have not had a bad meal here yet. Sometimes... More
