“Excellent food but no credit cards!!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Ate here in a group of 9 people and all the food was excellent even though we were requested to limit our orders to four different starters and main courses to simplify things for the kitchen. This was really no problem and all meals were served at the same time and all were hot.
Located in the centre of Thorn it is very easy to find and ample car parking was nearby.
The one major critical point was the fact that after finishing our meal and wanting to pay we were told that they don't accept any credit cards, not even Mastercard or Visa. We were told that a cash point was located in the village not far away. This may be a decision of the owners to save credit card costs but it can easily turn into an embarrassment for the diner and is certainly out of touch with most other restaurants.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

We use to go to this restaurant frequently when we lived in Eindhoven area even though it was a 20 minute drive (it was worth the drive). Unfortunately we no longer live in the area and we miss this restaurant. But last night we were able to go again and nothing had changed. The food is delicious! Definitely the best steak in holland. The chef is very skilled and passionate about what he is doing. And it is always pleasant when he comes out of the kitchen to greet you and ask how the meal is. The decor could use some change or updating (the walls are painted with warm colors, but the floor has a gloomy looking tile). But in winter, it is really cozy when the big fireplace is lit.
The restaurant is small so make a reservation.

“A Superb Dining Experience!”
Reviewed 20 February 2010

This wonderful restaurant is nestled in the historic "white" village of Thorn, The Netherlands.

The owner J. Tonnaer is also the Head Chef and takes great care in providing his guests with the most pleasurable dining experience!

The atmosphere is cozy and intimate, there are only about 10 tables so reservations are required.

The food is simply superb!

On our last visit I started with a delicious oxtail soup (which was to die for), grilled shrimp for my main and the fresh fruit sabayon for dessert. Everything was just wonderful and delicious and I always appreciate it when a Chef comes out into the dining room to inquire with his guests if they are enjoying their dinner/evening.

This is really a lovely restaurant and worth the trip!
