Loved the cuisine here which focused on vegetables particularly from their own garden. It was white asparagus season and the dishes paid proper respect to the ingredient. Deserving of their Michelin star.

Beautiful presentation, surprising use of vegetables, but one limiting factor that is common to several restaurants of this type in the Netherlands - the vegetables they use are so watery and the seasoning/spicing is so little that all the beautiful-looking food tastes disappointingly bland. The only exception was the plate of Dutch cheeses which was superb. The not-so-sweet dessert with... More

One of the best dining experiences ever. The welcome was really friendly and you can tell staff is hired based on their passion for food and beverages. The food was extraordinary and very innovative with lots of veggies. Definitely a place that I should recommend to friends. Loved the cheese and tea trolley as well! Thanks again for a wonderful...

I am not sure if this was the right choice for our Christmas lunch. The food was great, very vegetable driven and some unusual but successful flavours but unfortunately it lacked a celebratory feel. Partially due to the austerity of the venue but also due to the patchy impersonal service. The decorations, white Xmas trees with Verve Cliquot arrangements were... More

Loved the service, and the absence of 'overdoing it because we are exclusive'; as a vegetarian I was very impressed by / pleased with the excellent and tasteful veggie spices.

Had a client lunch at this restaurant. Found it very sterile and the menu was quite limited. Each course was explained to us, but some very strange combinations. The cod was delicious, cooked to perfection The veg are gardened on site, and I would say it’s a nice place to go to in fine weather. But for a client meeting,... More

Positives: I was accommodated with limited notice on a Monday evening as a solo diner. Mostly friendly service, nice dessert with freshly shaved winter truffle, intriguing garden course with associated menu, lighting that changed with the courses. Negatives: overall I was not impressed with either of the main courses provided in the 5 course tasting menu. Veal course was so... More
