“A modest restaurant with high quality food and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I had dinner here with some Dutch friends on a Sunday evening. It was not a busy time, so perhaps we got better than average service. The menu is not that extensive, with only eight or ten choices written on a mirror on the wall. But the preparation of the dishes was subtle and creative, so I was not disappointed. The wine list was good. They even had a good selection of liqueurs and scotch. This is well beyond what I expect from a small (and cramped) place with waitresses in aprons and t-shirts. Our waitress made a point of seeking me out at the end and asking whether there was anything that might have been improved.

This is one of my Dutch friends' favorite restaurant, and I can see why. It's modest enough for casual dining, but with above average quality and creativity. I'd certainly recommend it. It's not in the inner city, but close enough to be worth the short walk.

“THE place to eat for something special (future Michelin?)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

We've had a VERY nice diner at this place, with creative and delicious meals. You can't make a reservation, you have to wait in order to get a seat. But, it's definitely worth the wait!

“Surprising food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Surprising dishes, small choise but very fresh food, mixture of Asian/mediterrean food. Friendly staff. Always crowded with young and old people. Can be a bit noisy.
