You know me know, I rarely give a 5 stars to a restaurant I visit, but this one really deserves it. First of all, Edam is always a city where to go but the restaurant, right in its heart is ideally located. Not only, I found nothing to complain about; excellent food, perfectly prepared, excellent wine, very good service and... More

We were so impressed with our evening at this wonderful place, that we went back again for our second night in Edam. Henk and his staff explained the "secret" menu to us, which we were delighted with. We had the meat option on the first night and i went for the fish the second night. The atmosphere/service was first class... More

In this small scale restaurant, in the charming center of Edam, there is a fixed menu of 5 courses for €39. The menu offers a nice variety of dishes accompanied by nice wines (whole of half glases). You can order extra dishes as well (try the black pudding really very good. Traditional Dutch way). Service is very enthusiastic.

I share a surname with an Inspector (of the crime, rather than restaurant variety) and was greeted warmly by the proprietor. I had read good reviews of this restaurant and was glad to get a table on one of the two nights we were in Edam (they were closed on the Monday night). We went for the suprise taster menu,... More

We had the most wonderful experience at this little restaurant. There is a set menu although you can choose the number of courses. We had five courses which was an ample amount but we were tempted to have more as the food was so delicious. Not only was everything beautifully presented - the combination of foods and flavours of each... More

It is a small and very cosy restaurant with just 26 seats. Reservation is a must. We went for a 7 course dinner and all were extremely tasty. Not one single dish disappointed us. Most dishes were prepared in a way, you would not easily think of. All were very well presented. Henk, the owner is a guarantee for a... More
