We visited in May and have thought many times about how to fairly review our experience at Tantris. On our swing through the Netherlands and Germany we dined at Vinkeles and Bord'eau in Amsterdam and Schwarzwaldstube in Baiersbronn in addition to Tantris. Tantris was the only disappointment. The pace of the tasting menu seems to be deliberately slow - I didn't get the sense that they were exceptionally busy or having a bad night, it just seemed like they were deliberately allowing about 30 minutes between courses. The meal just seemed to drag on forever, and even with pacing ourselves with finished our bottle of wine somewhere around the middle of the third course. We saw a couple seated before us who were enthusiastically greeted as old time friends by the host and wait staff. At one point they called their waiter over and told him to speed things up, making wrist over wrist motions. Expect to spend 3 to 4 hours consuming a 5 course tasting menu of occasionally delicious but not particularly inspiring food, possibly including a couple of serious misses (our dessert course was a real misfire). We would not go back even if someone else were paying for the meal.
