In his previous restaurant 'De Jonge de Jong' we enjoyed the setting and the food. So we were rather curious to find out how much he had tweaked the formula.
The setting is quite different but (however little it looks like a dining room) makes you feel comfortable very quick.
The food? Well, to begin with, there is no menu. You choose the 'focus on veggies' option or the 'meat and fish' option. And you get served a four course meal. So you're in for a surprise. We've been there once so I have no idea how often he changes the menu. But I'd guess: rather often judging by the dishes we got. Like a dish with 'daslook' which is the first fresh green nature produces after winter: highly seasonal.
All dishes were delicious, with a special mention for the desert. We got a moulleux. But not an ordinary one: the chocolate cake wasn't filled with chocolate but with red beet. Combined with the flower syrup, an explosion for all senses!

Visited this new restaurant with friends and we had high expectations as chef De Jong has a good reputation but, must honestly say that it was disappointing. Their speciality is the vegetarian 4 course menu, and i must say it was simply not exciting enough to have 4 courses of vegetable dishes. We also got unlucky that 2 of the other guests who had the fish and meat menu got sick during the night. It is a good concept, and we still hear a lot of good reviews but, i will definetly wait until summer months before going back to try the vegetarian menu again, maybe the summer vegetables is more likeable for us. We also sent the restaurant an email twice the day after to let them know about the 2 people who got sick, but we are now weeks later and no reply from the restaurant which i find very unproffesional.
