After reading the reviews in Tripadvisor, we decided to try this restaurant. We were not disappointed, on the contrary we were very pleased with the food, the service, the atmosphere and the price.
The restaurant is very small, I think it has place for a maximum of 20-25 people tops. The owner Hennie Jansen explains that you can order you food from the choices in the menu or you can experience the slow food surprise menu. We opted for the slow food surprise menu which includes an aperitif, 4 course dinner (including dessert) and 3 generous glasses of wine that are perfectly paired with the food. The wines and the food are organic; the food comes for the local farmers.
The food itself is nothing fancy but it is well prepared and very tasty, the presentation is beautiful. We like all our dishes and were very satisfied. It is slow food, so you are encouraged to enjoy your food and wine, there is not rush at all. The owner kindly explains where the food comes from and also explains his wine choice for that particular dish.
The atmosphere was fantastic. The owner is an excellent entertainer and somehow finds a way to make you feel at home and relax. We also felt that from the other guests, so the evening went fantastic. We really had a superb time! and we can't wait to go back again.
