    Very cozy restaurant and extremely welcoming staff. The service was fantastic, the food amazing. The restaurant offers a surprise menu and they also have extra options like Dutch caviar or Oysters. We chose the oysters, which were magnificent, followed by 6 courses (5 fish and 1 dessert) with wine pairing. A truly wonderful experience.

    Excellent food and service. Very positive overall experience. They could surely improve on kitchen's ventilation, since the smell was too strong on the ground floor.

    Spectacular food. Imaginative and beautifully presented. Choice of set menus from 4 to 8 plates is very nice to cater to smaller to larger appetites. Nice, friendly staff and setting.

    Fabulous restaurant for a meal with friends. Small and cosy with a rustic look but the food is far from rustic!! It is top end cooking with really delicate presentation and intense flavour. We choose a 6-course menu which is just about right if you are hungry. You will think the portions are very small, but they are very filling as you move along the courses!!! Great service and a good choice of wines. The waiter was very knowledgable and made sure we were enjoying our evening. Not pricey for the level of cuisine on offer. Also catered very well for one of our party who does not enjoy chilli or other spices. Her food was cooked separately. Well worth a visit!!

    Really interesting setting - easy to reach on the Metro. We chose the 4 course chefs menu - with a local Dutch wine. Each dish was beautifully presented and the tastes were on point! Service was excellent and friendly. If you like your seafood, and you enjoy letting someone surprise you, go!

    Excellent food and service. We had the four course meal with extra oysters to start. Great place, built for appreciating foodies. Good wine list. Hint- ask for an upstairs table.

    Nice atmosphere. Good service. Average food but well presented Some of the fish was bland but complemented by good veg and inventive combinations of tastes. Worth the visit!

    Quirky idea - chef chooses what you are going to eat, once allergies etc have been discussed. Every course - we chose 4, but you could go for 8- was delicious and beautifully presented. A bit knocked sideways by the price, but worth it for a special meal.

    This restaurant should have at least one Michelin star for the food they serve. We had a 6 course dinner and each course was to die for.

    Surprise menu good fun and mostly delicious, only dish that disappointed was the strawberry sauce paired with the mackerel tartare ... wine list unnecessarily expensive
