Service was amazing. There were three of us and we had the duck, the salmon and asparagus, and the pork sate. All were done to perfection and very tasty. Extremely generous portions for the price. Perhaps only let down was the dessert. A but ordinary.

This restaurant was awesome! I had the Lamb and it was perfectly cooked and the sauce was great. The potatoes were very good. I had a glass of sweet bubbly white wine. The waitress did not call it champagne so I don't think it was....More

Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
