Dear visitor, I don't hope our success indeed will be just a hype, but last for much longer time. It's great fun to see that also "single" guests like you enjoy our food, atmosphere and service. You're right, the building is an old V.O.C.-warehouse from...More

Thank you dear guest for your kind review. Indeed not everybody likes the "concept" of ordering the sidedishes seperately, but herewith we manage that people just order what they really want (portions big enough for two) and we don't throw away too much. Better for...More
