Our third visit to this lovely, elegant restaurant. We had the 4 course market menu, as I believe the price is reasonable for the quality of food. I personally found the crab appetiser a little underwhelming, however the rest of the meal was excellent, with...More

Great atmosphere and decoration of the restaurant. Modern but elegant and relaxed contemporary design. As for the food clever mix of flavors and product tastes. Fish and see food excellently cooked but duck's meat quality was not as good. In short, well-balanced and structured menu...More

We'd eaten at Den Gouden Harynck 7 years ago so had fond memories of the place. The food was very good and the service was efficient, but for the money, we felt that it lacked the personal touch. The main server was off-hand and brusque...More
