Really nice food from all over the world. Pleasantly surprised by all the flavors. Delicious deserts! Dont expect to be there alone, it is quite vivid, but with a reason. We definitely want to come back!

I think that is the best restaurant that i tried in The Netherlands. A different but a fantastic experience. Really tasty food and friendly staff. Only i have to say that the sparkling wine was not cool enough but nothing bad.
