“One got to go there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2011

From experience we know the chef Mike Klein is a good cook. Several times we had dinner in his previous restaurant, Proeverij de Heerlijckheid in Leerdam.
But Mike decide to step it up. He moved to De Middenhof, an old farmhouse and he created a totally different concept. Pancake reastaurant for the family events, a bistro and for those who were ready for some splurging: a restaurant.

We were again in the restaurant and had a great time. The amuse was nice, lobster newburg in a small breaded fried ball. The next course concerned gamba's for my partner and foie gras for myself. Excellent quality and well presented. The sweet wine wine was a welcomed partner of the foie gras.
We both made a choice for the venison filet. Again a splendid dish. Great flavor, great sauce and the way the mushrooms were prepared was wonderful. An undertone of garlic but you could still taste the mushrooms. Asparagus were outstanding. According to my partner, and she knows a thing or tow about this vegetable, one of the best she ever had.
Service was good again, extra sauce: no problem; more bread and butter, within no time it is on your table.

And then the wine. Mike knows we like older wines and once again he managed to come up with a nice 1988 Haut Medoc. Do we have to repeat we had a great night.
If you want they offer great desserts but we had enough this time and decided to go home, fully satisfied.
Hope to come back soon.
Price performance is very good. You won't be dissapointed.
