Superb menu made choosing difficult, traditional dishes rubbed shoulders with modern classics. High ceilings, wood panels and a smart exterior created a real buzz on a virtually full Thursday night on the first floor. Downstairs quieter. Decent wines by the glass. A truly fabulous Steak Tartare was followed by Chateaubriand with clunky fries, white and red cabbage, mushrooms, onions and a poached pear (?). A choice of sauces, peppercorn and mushroom had a very bought in taste but otherwise a big meal well cooked and just what we felt like on a breezy autumn night. 80 Euros for two with a couple of glasses of wine, much cheaper options and a 25 Euro 5 course menu were also available.

This place is situated excellent in the center of Brielle. You can sit there nicely and watch the people go by. When you want to have a drink or a bite, then you better go to another terrace, because the service is slow and waiters always look the other way.
This is not a one time experience....

My colleague had eaten here a few weeks ago and wanted to return after having a great meal. He was disappointed on finding out that the menu had changed completely since his last visit. However, he should not have worried as the winter 'meat' menu was also of very high standard. Recommended.

I was very surprised at the quality and presentation of the food, although it was cooked quickly the staff must be congratulated. The freshness of the herbs and vegetables made me think that it was one of the best meals I have enjoyed this year in the Netherlands.

We went with a party of 4 business people (visiting the neighbouring chemical industry), and were pleasently surprised by the quality of the food and the atmosphere in the restaurant.
