The location of the restaurant is exceptional. We sat in the serre, the new room, which has a beautiful modern/rustic decor. The service is very good. The hostess is very professional and into the detail. When we visited, the restaurant was almost full, but we didn't have to wait too long in between dishes. Just the normal waiting time. They...

One of, if not the very best, restaurants I've been to. We were wandering through Harlingen and the new glad extension caught our eye. I thought the décor and ambience was great and we decided to stay. 3 beautifully judged little amuse bouche were brought to the table whilst waiting for our starters. I had an octopus dish, that was... More

We had the chefs 5 course surprise menu and this was a great choice. We had a table upstairs by the window and could see the lighthouse we were staying at from our table which made it extra special.

We arrived without a booking and we're pleased to still get a table as it was our anniversary. Friendly staff greeted us and settled us in with how the menu worked. We chose a 3 course set menu which we all thoroughly enjoyed. There were also small complimentary dishes along the way and well spaced so you didn't feel overfull.... More

Its a lovely building in a fine location. We really enjoyed the food and could see why it was so highly rated. However on the night we were there the service was desperately slow and the restaurant manager/maitre'd did nothing to address this. It was almost an hour before we got our starter though we did have three - yes... More

We got a place at the chefs table completely by accident and we were bowled over by the passion and pure mastery of the chef. If you get the opportunity take it!!!

The best restaurant at Harlingen. Fresh, regional food at a reasonable price. Real 'dining out', with a lovely harbourview. A very obliging staff, everything is tiptop correct.

When visiting Friesland in March we went to Harlingen to visit the old town and inner and outher harbour. We had lunch in this interesting and good-looking restaurant overlooking the harbour in a nicely restored building. We were welcomed by a friendly waitress and got a nice table at the window where we could overlook the boulevard. We ordered lunch... More
