“Excellent quality for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The Chef, although of middle age, has a very long history of cooking. He inherited his cooking skills from his mother which was a renowed Chef in earlier days. The location is still the same, a charming villa in the pittoresque town of Valkenburg. The style of cooking, although still using classical ingredients and preparing them to perfection, not the heaviness of the classical French kitchen but more subtile.
We had a great 4 course meal with tuna carpaccio, lobster, Black Angus beef, turbot, fantastic selection (actually one of the best I had in the Netherlands) of perfectly ripened cheeses for less then €60.
Good wine pairings too. Absolutely recommendable! Ask for the menu 'Lazy Sunday afternoon'.
Absolutely deserving a Bib Gourmand.

“Wonderful restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We were a party of 12 staying in the town and had pre-booked a set dinner for our party on a Sunday evening. The hospitality and ambience were excellent. The meal that had been designed for us was fabulous from the amuses-bouches right through to the coffee. The service was of the very highest order personally supervised by the chef-owner. The other diners were locals who very much seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as we did. Don't be alarmed if you see exactly the same description for the other French restaurant in the same street! We went there on the Saturday evening and were just as delighted. Thank you so much.
