The food was excellent and if I owned a restaurant I would higher the waiter. He was great. very attentive. Even though he was handling eight tables in our room we never were left wanting for anything.

I was staying nearby in Crowne Plaza Hotel and so found this restaurant by chance but,lucky I did. It is a delightful restaurant with veranda looking out onto a lake and great interior style. Food was very good and service was friendly and fast. If staying in Hooffdorp either for Schipol or on business I would recommend to visit for... More

After reading some reviews on TripAdvisor and after looking this restaurant's website, we decided to give it a try. And we loved it. Food was excellent, stuff friendly and service was good too. We even returned the next day for another good meal. Location is next to a pond and they have an outside sitting area. We will be back... More

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
