Loved this restaurant, from the barbecued pineapple amuse with a hint of pork, to the carefully constructed and delicious fish and meat dishes with fabulous sauces. Small servings with attention to detail. Really nice to see alternative soft drinks for the driver from Wostok - the ginger and tarragon was great! I wasn't driving so had the wine arrangement. Wonderful!... More

The place is situated along a small canal (and about 150 meters from the Post Plaza hotel). Food was extremely good, service was top and above all... More

Nice small restaurant with excellent service. Staff takes time to make you feel comfortable. Good local dishes from local suppliers served in style. In a way it is the simplicity that makes it so good. Go for it!

With a small but versatile offering in three,four or five course cards, this Restaurant is special. The red perch first dish needed the herbs and textures around it as the fish is not really of memorable flavour. The Angus beef dish was very tasty and the beef very tender, again well presented with fabulous Frysh potatoes. The wine list was... More

I was looking for a chance to visit this restaurant for a while now. And today I finally made reservations for two co-workers and me. One of us came from Hamburg and I knew she has visited a lot of restaurants through the world. We started out with gazpacho from the house and a cranberry prosecco, very tasteful! We chose... More
