Location and contact

Winebar & Winebistro Have a luscious glass of one of the 30 wines (& beers) that are available by the glass, or choose a bottle from our winestore which consists of over 300 references from all over the world. In the winebar you can have some delicious small dishes, for which we cooperate with cheese master Elsen and traditional butcher Rondou. Furthermore there is a tasty bistro menu that will perfectly match your tasty glass of wine. Lovely for wine tasters and gourmets!
