I visited this restaurant during Heerlijk10Daagse and had a "surprise menu" designed for this event. 35 euros for 3 courses and they offered an extra dish (Halibut in lobster sauce) for only 10 euros more. For that price in a Michelin restaurant i didn't expect to get that much in the plate, i got wrong. On top of the 4... More

We drove by this place during our visit to the Waterland and tried to have lunch here, but it was only opened for dinner. So, we came back for dinner after we finished touring the Waterland, and we weren't disappointed. The service was a little slow but friendly; more importantly, the food was excellent. A wide variety of dishes and... More

This is not the first place that I, living in Amsterdam, would think to look for a Michelin-Star Restaurant, but about 20 minutes away in the small village of Monnickendam sits this star restaurant. We we were warmly greeted and brought to the lounge area to start with a drink and amuse. The usual Port for me and a Gin... More

A lovely stay with great food. Room was quirky - in the loft & open plan & comfortable. Reception staff a bit offish. Waiting staff superb. Food was wonderful - different, interesting & no foam for once. Sommelier was great - know his stuff & was very enthusiastic.

See separate review of the hotel, however briefly the restaurant lives up to its reputation with excellent food served with good service and if you choose the flight, a good selection of course by course wines. The food is relatively straightforward, so there are no foams or smokes, no big reveals, no multiple waiters per table. It is well prepared,... More

I am shocked by some of the reviews that have written badly about this restaurant here. We sail every year from Monnickendam and on Friday felt like having a really nice meal. So quite under-dressed we went in and asked if they had a table. The extremely friendly staff accommodated the 4 of us though they were nearly full. But... More

We had a pre arranged Groupon arrangement, consisting of 6 courses + accompanying wines. The first few courses were very good (amuses with cava, terrine of deer with a nice salad, crab rolls with Bisque) but then things were starting to go downhill. The last starter was a disch of chicken, which was OK., the main course was porc and... More
