Visited for dinner whilst overnighting at nearby Holiday Inn Express between flights at Schiphol Airport. Walking distance from hotel, pleasant surroundings overlooking lake and with ambient atmosphere. Food was good and reasonable value. Highly recommended.

We were staying at an airport hotel and wanted a restaurant close by...the hotel called Hirondelle and they sent a car to pick us up, free of charge. We were impressed with how beautifully decorated the restaurant was...a lovely setting! The menu was extensive and included a three course set menu for 29 euros. Two of us ordered this, while...

WE did not really expect such a pleasant restaurant close to the Airport, thus we were pleasantly surprised. The interior design was a bit unusual but very nice, good taste. It was a quite evening in a quite neighborhood, relaxing. There was a limited but sufficient A La Carte selection, and a pleasant and very affordable menu. Go fo it!

Summer time is the best.. the view is amazing. During the winter, better stay inside :) I guess it's not the best place to go to if you want real specials, but there is a lot of room for larger groups, and that's an asset

I had both lunch and dinner because of a business event closeby. Friendly service combined with a nice menu makes this restsurant worth a visit. During dinner, it was a bit warm in the restaurant. All in all I might return.

The food here is very nice. The menu is creative with plenty of fresh fish, thoughtfully created flavour combinations and well presented plates. However the service is inconsistent, ranging from absolutely excellent to downright sullen!
