As a local, we have been coming here for years and overall I can say, the quality is quite stable if not slowly growing each year. Their current staff has enormous talent and shows their creativity very well and serve French cuisine with a modern touch and the latest techniques. We usually enjoy their 4 (or 5) course surprise menu... More

For example: we got a little piece of fish, but with a couple drops of applegelatine. The service is fast, friendly and, when you have the surprisedinner, they... More

A bright, beautiful simple restaurant. Well received and shown to a lovely table beautifully presented with comfortable chairs (padded seats). Glass of house champagne (Bereche et fils); delicious. The chef is there; maybe its because we are with two locals who rave about this restaurant. Anyway I am tempted to go all things local (Friesian: name of the region). Prior... More

A hidden treasure in a small town. We had a remarkable dinner, every dish a pleasant surprise. Nicely plated creations, explosion of tastes, good wine. The service was extremely friendly, paying attention to every guest without being ever intrusive. One of the best diners even.
