This is an expensive high end restaurant and there is no point in going unless you enjoy fairly formal and intricate food, but served in a very friendly and knowledgeable way and with no pomposity. The menu is a set one and you choose the number of courses you want - we had four and it was plenty; eating the... More

We had a business dinner with 4 people and were very satisfied of the whole evening we had. We chose for a four course dinner with matching wines. For one of our drivers it was interesting that also a ‘responsible driving portion’ for the wines was possible. The amuse bouche offered at the start of our evening had a great... More

The food, the presentation of the food, the texture of the food, the temperature of the food were excellent. The atmosphere was excellent. However, the cleanliness of the hand washing area including its floor was not proper. Our table after finishing the main, before dessert was not properly cleaned. I feel like the serving team was not top.

The restaurant seems to have closed at short notice. I turned up there this evening having only confirmed my reservation 3 days ago to find notices in the window of 23 St Katelijnevest saying it was under new ownership and details will follow. No warning, no emails to people have booked. Very shoddy practice. I think something has just gone... More

I have never ever been to a restaurant that is this good .... the people... the staff. Most of all the food!! Sarah was our waitress and she was off the chart. Friendly, attentive, advised us on all the best wines and courses... just the best restaurant i have ever been to. The atmosphere was welcoming, even though we had... More

We had the "Menu of the day" with wine pairings. I wanted to take my client to an excellent restaurant and this ticked every box in every manner. Mid week is the best time to visit because you have a choice of tables and can talk business discretely. The champagne to start is one I had not had before and... More

I visited this restaurant a few weeks ago with my husband and we both enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the service is very good. We chose different items from the a la carte menu and all our choices were superb. I loved the combination of lentils and avocado in my entrée and my husband thoroughly enjoyed... More

We visited for a double birthday celebration after studying Trip Advisor reviews and were completely captivated by the imagination, artistry, taste and enthusiasm of the chefs. It is important to say early on that this is not cheap, although it is possible to stick to the set menu, limit your drinks, avoid supplements (the only critical note I would add... More
