“Wonderful Lunch and Great Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

A group of four of us (one Dutch, two British, one American) went for lunch at this restaurant, and had an absolutely wonderful lunch. We were totally enthralled by the quality, taste, and variety of the menu. We all had different food, from vegetarian to fish and red meat, and were not disappointed in the least. It was all wonderful. I can not exaggerate how impressed we all were with the food, and service. We are going back tonight, again! That should say something about the impression it made!

“Very good but portions are small”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Very good fresh fish prepared just right. Some menu items were not available (lobster bisque). Portions were small, even by European standards - thankfully they have great bread, otherwise I would have left hungry after a starter and main course. High quality food, but very expensive for what you get. Service was friendly and excellent. Staff seemed keen to get us out of there by 10:00pm.

“not bad but not as good as the reputation of the chef”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

As the owner is a well known figure in Dutch Culiland this restaurant should reflect his quality. We thought it does not have that quality. Be assured, it certainly is not bad and serves good fish, has a great young staff and friendly prices for drinks. Also the time spent there was nice, courses follow with a nice interval, not too long a wait between them. But the quality of the four courses we had was not overall evenly high. Starter was good, Bouillabaisse needed the cheese to gain some taste and was more of a tomato soup. Fish was good again but served with french fries? Dessert was also not the best part. Overall an experience that was not really disappointing but also is not convincing us to come back again.
