Almost not taste. Vegetables superb. Good service, but not excellent. We asked bread that it never arrive to our table. Location is... More

Very nice venue near a small lake, Karpendonkse Plas, just of the University Grounds. Excellent food, but as earlier commented by other guests, the serving is very slow. Did not matter to us as we had a lot to discuss.

Would have given this review 5 stars if it wasn't for the smoke that came into the restaurant from the open doors to the terrace... Beautiful building, friendly and attentive service, and great food!

We had the 4 course chef's menu with wine pairings and it was an amazing evening. We arrived at 7 and left at 10, but the timing felt perfect. Enough time to chat between courses, enjoy the wine and savor the food. The owner / hostess was a real pleasure to chat with and we felt like we were the... More

The food was very special and, clearly, researched. It was nice to try dishes which clearly inventive was put in. The staff was nice and attentive. The only drawback is that it took almost one hour from one dish to the next. Tip: 3 courses are definitely sufficient to be able to leave the restaurant without being overfull.

We had lunch in this restaurant. This place feels outdated. I don't know when the last renovation was done, but for this kind of restaurants, it was far too long ago. The restaurant was rather empty, service was slow, food was ok. Overall experience wasn't good.

Great location, superb service. All staff well informed about the culinary origins as well as the wine selection. We recommend to buy the wine pr glas suited to each tasty dish. Here you do not go wrong.... We enjoyed the evening with friends from abroad.... an excellent choice for a place to go!

Had occasion to sample the lunch-time offering on one of the warmest days of the year. This turned out the delightful as the table was outside with the spectacular view of the park. Lunch was light to match the weather, but each course was a festival of flavours with the lamb and raspberries being my favorite. The staff came with... More

This restaurant has quite a reputation and with my visit it lived up to my expectations. The cuisine is fine, I had some classic choices: coquille st Jacques and foie gras and that were good options. We ate had diner in the so-called sun lounge, an extension from the original restaurant. My companion had swordfish which was an excellent option.... More
