Unique

Very unique Restaurant and Brewery. It was a old Dutch Reformed Church from 1855. They have turned it into a great restaurant. The Craft beer is brewed in house and there are several varieties. The food and beer are very good.

Checked out this place today, after I read in the news that a famous micro craft brewer from Haarlem (Jopen) took over the place. Food was surprisingly good! Great unexpected dishes in a friendly entourage. I had a veal starter that was paired with pickles. Never had such a delicate starter before. They also make liquor in this church, the... More

We were taken here by friends as a surprise and what a delight it was. Food is of very high quality as is the service. Greta house wine for only 19 euros. And then there is the beautful way this former church has been converted.

Great find. Built from a renovated old church, i didn't enjoy the food but the beer was very good. Several options on draft and more in bottle. Stop by, you will be happy you did.

I recommend the oak gin in your started gin and tonic. The amuse bouche of pumpkin mousse with apricot was unforgettable. Service was great.

Several months after visiting this awesome place for a first time during a business dinner, I came with a good friend for a nice dinner. To my surprise the menu was renewed and we could taste a 4-course meal that was simply splendid. Both us went for the vegetarian main dish and we remained quite pleased. It is unnecessary to...

Looking for nice restaurant with a special touch to take foreign business guests, I came across this restaurant. The church floor has been converted in a bar and the balcony is made into the restaurant. Eyepiece is the distilling equipment. We started with jenever from the distillary, which ws smooth and full of flavors. The menu has a good variety... More

The renovation of this old church to convert it in a restaurant is just amazing! The architect, owners and decorators have managed to create a unique atmosphere in the former church. We appreciated the possibility to have a late dinner and the kindness of the service. Overall, a very good experience!

Visited here with a couple of co-workers on a business trip. Such a unique atmosphere in the former church. Food is good - not five-star, but an enjoyable evening. Great bar area!

This old converted church has a ton of charm. I had the steak and it was done to perfection and the service was friendly and efficient. The chef sent out a few tasters of items that were delicious.They also gave me a taster of the liquor they make on site and I had to bring a bottle home to Canada.... More
