My wife and I have eaten there twice. The concept, everything from there own garden or farm, is tasteable in the menu. Excellent food.

Different experience eating vegetables & flowers... Said to be from their own garden... nice view of the lake from the eating place. Go with a mindset of trying a different sort of food else you might find it difficult to enjoy

This futuristically shaped building is a great place to enjoy modern architecture and special food. Especially in summer this place with an excellent terrace at a large waterfront is a big treat! But I was here on a winters night, so I have to focus...More

Our restaurant located in the Haarlemmermeer Pavilion is a special building designed by Hani Rashid of Asymptote Architects from New York. From spring to autumn there flows a waterfall on the roof, which is spectacular down at the entrance. The pavilion is located at the edge of the Haarlemmermeer woods, 'floating' on a lake and surrounded by our vegetable garden. This beautiful place you just forget everything. Every moment is different, sometimes the building disappears in the dew of the morning, an hour later, the shining in the sunlight. This property emphasizes how close we live with nature. Eye to eye with water, air and endless green.
