“One of the best dinnercafes in Groningen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

For me personally the best dinnercafe in town; more like a real restaurant but I guess they wouldn't attract any students if they'd change the name ;-)
Comes with a higher price obviously, but well worth it if you fancy finer dining.
You can also book a guided canalboat tour /dinner combi.

“Very French”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

The food here is really outstanding. It was presented well. Everything had sauces just like in France, and they were all excellent. There was a slow-roasted Angus cut of beef that had been cooked for 14 hours and fell off the fork, with great flavor. I can't give five stars, though, because there is no excuse for brown lettuce in a salad. Also, portions were very, very tiny. But hey, that's authentic French!

“Nice restaurant with good food and a relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

We had dinner here with 4 people. The place is nicely decorated, the tables are set across the restaurant in a way that you have a lot of room and a privacy. The menu shows some local choices together with some international plates. The interesting thing is that for all the food they use local suppliers.

The service is good and quick, knowledge of the menu and wine is good. Food is great and the local touch makes it even better.

Good choice to go for in Groningen !

“Very good, but maybe not the best in Groningen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

Tried it because of its position as No 1 restaurant in Groningen on Tripadvisor. We sat outside on the terrace on what was a very hot day. Service was quick and friendly. Good selection of French/Dutch food. I particularly enjoyed my stewed lamb dish. I will definitely go back. But I'm not sure it is the best restaurant in Groningen: there is quite some competition in the town e.g. Brussels Lof.

“Good Restaurant in Groningen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2011

To my surprised learnt that this restaurant had become number 1 on Tripadvisor for Groningen. A visit suggested that they do well: serve a good threat in a stylish (but also a bit noicy) restaurant. Liked precourse, main menu as well as dessert. We had the house wine to the meal which was very good. Visited all Top 10 restaurants in Groningen I believe it fits here, but I also believe, that a couple of them including Muller, Brussels Lof, Seizoen and Zevende Hemel do an even better job.
