Enjoying the art of cooking and hospitality with a view of the typical boats in the Scheveningen Harbor.

Honestly, meals are really good. But we were eating 3:40 hours to lunch. Between every dish (7) we had to wait until 30 minutos. Then, the amount of food was really poor. After 7 dishes, I was hungry. I don’t recommend. It was awful.
