For Mothers Day we had dinner here. It was our first time. Some of the dishes are a little complicated but always well thought out and tasty. Great wines too and excellent service. No worries if you dont't want to eat kangaroo or alligator, there is beef too. Delicious crème brulee.

Allways fully booked but when I reserved a place on a warm summerday they had held two tables, one outside and one inside, apart for me and my friends. So we could choose. The service and the food on that day and other days was excellent. Rarelly been served better elsewhere!

During our 5 days stay in Amsterdam, we ate out for most of our meals, including some pretty high end restaurants in the city proper. Little did we know that our universally favourite place would be this Australian restaurant! Being adventurous, we tried the crocodile, ostrich, and kangaroo among other things, and most of us ordered the 3-course meal. We... More

We found this little pearl on Friday to learn there are no free tables. Managed to get a booking for a next day though and it was worth it! 3-courses menu give you a curious choice of dishes you would never have a chance to try anywhere else. We went for a crocodile, an ostrich and some fish, finished by... More
