We return regularly for the wonderful, creative food of the talented Vincent. A varied tempting menu. This is the only restaurant I will eat duck as it is served tender and tasty. The ribs satisfy the most picky and unadventurously demanding father in law. But...More

Sorry but I don't know if they allow pets in this restaurant. You could ring them, they speak English ( the owners are Dutch but speak very good English)
