I think one of the best in Holland. I can compare it to El Bulli but they are in good line. We always choose "chef's recommendation menu" which is good. Only if serving time can be shorten, more better because 3 hours is a bit too long for dinner.....

We had lunch in this 3* restaurant, and it was an unforgettable experience. This is really (one of) the best restaurants we ever visited, and at the same time one of the best in Holland and Belgium. It's not cheap, but man, what an experience. You start with a number of amuses, all with flavours that explode in your mouth.... More

Wine card is impressive, but again,... More

In a timeless decor of white and gray tones with a central pink coloured flower piece all attention goes to the food which is both simple and complex with the accent on taste. After entering we were escorted to a cosy ,dimly lit (and well occupied) lounge where... More

After a very warm welcome at the door, we were escorted to the lounge for drinks and fingerfood to start of our amazing dinner: Starting with truffled popcorn, excellent cheese puffs, a pearl shaped bonbon with a liquid center that tasted of apple and seaweeds. This was followed by a marshmellow with 5 flavours and 3 suger cube sized creations,... More

Appetizers/Starters are 3 star michelin quality (currently awarded 2 by the french culinary authority) - the rest of the menu was very good too. Really great decor as well.
