I had never been before to this venue but a friend bought me a voucher as a present. This is a boat house converted, a small venue which has a "tardis" like quality as the building looks tiny on the surface but extends down below into a basement restaurant.
I took 2 friends and we decided on the 7 course tasting menu. There was no "menu" to tell us what each dish was but instead the Dutch chef came out and personally "presented" each dish, telling us how he and his team had prepared it.
The food was truly beautiful and I got a chance to taste items I would possibly never order, a beetroot based crab salad with beetroot macaroons and beetroot pearls being an example, I thought I hated beetroot. This was delicious ....
Another highlight is their gin list, order a gin and tonic and you are presented with a list of gins - not standard brands but instead less known to me. We sampled the Breuckelen Glorious Gin from New York which everyone enjoyed.
There were some lovely touches.. Molton Brown in the gents with fresh rolled hand towels, the chefs's easy manner with customers, the waiter not pouring wine out while gin and tonics still on the go. The cheese course was actually a little deep fried blue cheese snack the chef had augmented from Holland and it was very tasty.
All in all a really enjoyable educational night, and many thanks to all the staff :)
