I've been here for a business lunch and I really enjoyed it. We ordered the the sandwich salmon and the hot chicken. Both were presented in a nice way and we both liked the food. The food was of good quality, a bit pricey, but worth it. But then again, restaurants in the Netherlands are pricey most of the time.... More

We went here on a Saturdaynight. Half of the tables were occupied. The setting is maybe a bit too formal. Something you would expect in a 5 star restaurant. The food however was very good, but a bit pricey as in many Dutch restaurants. The choise on the menu was a bit limited, but that was not a problem at... More

I really enjoyed everything at this restaurant. The location around the fountain was optimal and the food was very good. The wait staff was pleasant and patient with our lack of fluency. The appetizers main course and drinks were great.

It looks stylish on the outside and the reception (by the owner?) is favourable. Unfortunately, anything after that was downwards. The prosecco was not bad, but just that. The vegetarian appetizers were quite tasteless although it had many ingredients. The main dish, catch of the day, was dry with likewise unimaginative vegetables on the side. The wine, Chablis, was acceptable,... More

I loved the fried fish ball starter with curry mayo - it was awesome. The bread was great and I skipped an appetizer since I wasn't very hungry and things were pricey. I ordered the goose in orange with roasted carrots. It was awesome! I really loved the flavors and the portion was just right - plenty but not too... More

Great experience, fantastic food (especially the salmon starter and the fish catch of the day). I went by myself on a Monday evening (on business trip) and was the only one in the restaurant, so a little to quiet to be cosy.

I was staying overnight at the Holiday Inn Express at Hoofddrop, The list of restauraunts was provided by the staff and so I dropped in by chance on a Saturday evening. The setting and the ambience is very good, but be aware that this is a very formal restauraunt.The prices therefore would be compatible with this status. The service was... More

I had dinner there with 4 people for a buisness meeting. The ambiance is wonderful and the food was above expectations. It does not have the fastest service but as an American, I am used to this. I personall like the slow eating style but you must be prepared.
