“top restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Excellent in every way.

Just as expected. I loved the food and wine pairing.
Great champagne and bites to start with. And I could not resist to end with some great cognac. To bad the evening had to end sometime.

“Best one in rotterdam hands down.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Look, the price will be high. But in terms of food,service and prestige there is nothing that compares to it in rotterdam even in the netherlands it hard to beat this restaurant. I really recommend it for very special occasions i came here for my 20th birthday. Had the chef's 5 course menu was amazing.

“Very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The reception was very friendly although we were 40 minutes late. It was a warm day and we had lunch on the terrace - overlooking the river 'Maas'. We chose the 3-course menu. The food was very good ant the portions generous.
If in the area again, we would come back.

“impecable, but missing the Wow factor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A two-star Michelin restaurant needs to have a few qualities which set it apart from all others:
- Ingredients: 10/10 flawless quality and preperation
- presentation/creativity: 7/10 pretty safe, no surprises/innovation here
- atmosphere 7/10 large tables and lots of room inbetween tables. Decor is neutral and 'safe'. On the positive side this gives you good opportunity for quiet conversation with your table partner, on the other hand there is no contact whatsoever with the other diners, for example to share your enthousiasm about the dishes
- service 9/10 as with many of these restaurants, you have too many people at your table (one to seat you, one to welcome you, one for the water, one for the wines, one for the bread, one for the.... etc.) All where technically good, but it lacks the personal attention factor
- wine (list) 10/10 on this occasion: interesting choices, not all really expensive wines but selected on the fit with the dish. Another good thing was that my wife, who was driving, got a sip to taste of every wine served at no extra cost.

So now for the intangible part... for a two star Michelin restaurant, we did not walk out with the Wow-look on our faces. In fact, after the meal, we asked ourselves: would we rather return here, or at a nearby 1-star restaurant we ate a month earlier. We both chose the nearby 1-star for the creativity and the ' buzz'.

“Expensive but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Some time ago I had dinner here with 12 friends of me. We were put aside in a private room with our private personnel because as a group, we would probably be louder than the average guest. All in all this was very nice, because as a group we didn't have to care for our volume and we were able to have a great time together.

Our servant was great, adjusting to the level of his public! As main course we had deer which was excellent. Also the choices of wine were excellent.

The price is among the most expensive in the Netherlands, as we had to pay around 3000 in total for 13 people all eating the same dish.

Nevertheless, for a special night, this restaurant is a big recommendation!
