I went for birthday night out with my wife. The restaurant looks really nice and different. Although we had made restaurant reservations well in advance, we were sat in the lounge on a high bar table. I kindly requested a different table. The waitress flat out refused as all tables were reserved with special requests, which is fair enough. I... More

Enjoyed a very nice lunch at the Kruidfabriek (wordplay on the former gunpowder factory 'kruit' and herbs 'kruid'). Going strong at this location for over a decade. Attentive not obtrusive service, tasteful combinations and presentation.

I went here for a business dinner and was really impressed by the creative food options. The care taken with the food was impeccable. The menu had plenty of options but wasn't in your traditional starter, main, dessert approach but simply options offered in differing sizes. A stunning restaurant that I can't recommend highly enough.

The menu was creative and the food well prepared. The atmosphere is nice and cozy. The service was inattentive - it was hard to get the waiter's attention and even after this he didn't bring the things requested.

We were here for lunch and the menu was simply delicious. Made with care and attention, the plates looked simply Instagram worthy! As always a very good cuisine.

This has to be one of the best meals I have had in a long time. The food is presented beautifully along with fabulous service We had a four course dinner and every course was amazing. We did not want it to finish. Highly recommended for a special occasion.

After having had lunch here a couple of times, it was time to take the wife here. We both loved the creative dishes and attentive service here. Why didn't they get starred yet?

Very good quality of the food and the wines. Impressive and creative entourage, with an awesome way to stow bottles of wine on the wall. High quality business dining.
