“Best restaurant experiene in Europe”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Authentic, delicate good food that is well prepared in surroundings best described as your great grand parents private livingroom. Do treat yourself to this experience if you want to have something to talk to your friends about. 97 year old Hr. Heissing himself is serving you together with his wife.

We shall definately return again soon.

First thing to remember - It's CASH ONLY. I noticed a lot of people embarrassedly shuffling out to get cash and I myself restricted myself from having another drink on (unfounded) fears that I might be short.

Second thing to remember - Be on time! I got hopelessly lost and nearly lost my table (in spite of emailing to say that I'd be late).

Lastly - If you've got the first two things in the bag, it's FANTASTIC, so be prepared for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

The ambience is just lovely. The decor makes you feel like you've stepped back in time. The elderly couple who run the restaurant (Mrs. & Mr. Heising) are warm and gracious hosts. I was a bit worried about dining alone in a restaurant which was so clearly a very romantic place, but I have to say I had one of the best evenings ever.
The food is great - perhaps not the best French food I've ever had, but definitely high up there. Rich and decadent.
Would highly recommend. Do book in advance.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

As many others said before: a great restaurant for the time traveller. Nothing for a quick bite after work - you go here when you want to celebrate something. Or when you want to feel like sitting in the dining room on the Titanic .-) French food, classic style, so yes: best quality, but nothing innovative (and that would not fit into the atmosphere).

Maybe not the best food (although top 10) I have had during the years, but when you put all together it will be one of the best.

Mr Heising with his wife give you the best of best in service and make you feel like one in the family. The interior take you back to early 19 century and it make the food taste even better. The food was really good, only a few minor details...
The price (46 euro for 3 courses and 54 euro for 4) is really good.

I will tell all my friends about this restaurant and I hope Mr Heising and his wife will be around for a long time.
