Was staying at Hampton Inn near Schiphol prior to departure the next morning. The location was very peaceful with a swan swimming on the pond behind the restaurant. I ordered the asparagus soup as a starter and the soup was excellent. For entrees I ordered the veal ribeye and my wife order the salmon. Both entrees were outstanding and by... More

I went here after doing some research on Trip Advisor as the hotel I was staying at in the area was close by and this place stood out from the crowd. The restuarant is located beside a rectangular pond, with a swan and a fountain. It is a very nice setting and is quite nice. The restuarant also has an... More

Went here with a business friend who had visited this restaurant twice before. Very nice atmosphere in a quite neighborhood. French cuisine is not my all time favorite but this place out did my expectations!! They had a monthly menu which was seasonal and very good. For the starter I had the duck--excellent, for mains--the beef tenderloins with white asparagus--excellent,... More

Setting: Lovely cozy restaurant overlooking a fountain-fed pond with a giant white swan floating peacefully all evening. Beautiful! Food: Excellent preparation of a pumpkin soup and salmon main course. Delicious! Service: Very attentive and friendly. Made me feel comfortable and welcomed. Offered me a ride as it was getting dark when I left. Nice! I would definitely recommend this restaurant... More

This restaurant is located just a short walk from the hotels mentioned and is located in a quiet rural setting with great views and good food. I had the beef tournedos which were excellent. Moderately priced and friendly staff.

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay at Hampton Inn Airport. It was within easy walking distance and a beautiful park right next to it. We were starving the first night after just arriving from Africa. The steak was excellent, so tender, and even though I'm not a vegetable eater I ate every bite of veggies. The service was... More

I was staying at the nearby Holiday Inn Express, and this was the nearest restaurant by far. Delightfully situated on the shore of a fountain-centred lake, the restaurant oozes romantic appeal. I went on a particularly quiet night and the service therefore was super fast and closely attended. The Dutch word gezellig really encompasses all that the restaurant is about,... More

Enjoyed a 3 course meal with wine with a friend, and everything was really good. I had the peking duck starter (divine), and then the rack of lamb for main course, which was a little chewy but oh so tasty. The lamb came with a carrot mash that was to die for. The presentation of everything was immaculate. For dessert... More
