Really enjoyed this place. Really friendly greeting when you enter and a lovely place to sit and watch the busy restaurant hill outside. The decor is nice inside and the tables are arranged in a manner that its never feels overcrowded even when the place full. The menu is different to what you get elsewhere in the area and feels...

Good food, well cooked and good service. Not somewhere you'd pop in for a quick meal, this is good cooking with good service. It could be a little lacking in atmosphere if it was on the empty side, but always a warm welcome.

Disappointing meal last week - it used to serve fine French style food but is now an average place serving Dutch food. Must be a different chef. Irish coffees were good though.

Been here many times before but never got around to reviewing, this is a very traditional a la carte restaurant run by a charming Dutch family. The menu has changed over the years and now there is fixed price 20 euro menu for three courses which is exceptional value. It's very cosy and romantic in here and the service is... More

Neither one of us could find fault with any of the food, it all tasted... More

The food here is fantastic, the 6 of us all loved our meals. We had chicken satay, tuna, calves liver, soup, tempura and other dishes all of which were great. The house wine (both red and white) were really nice and reasonably priced. The staff are very warm and welcoming. The fig dessert was something else! Definitely worth a visit,... More
