I went with my wife to this restaurant and the dinner was amazing. They create a selection of dishes from which you have to choose, so it is not possible to choose one by one, even though this creates a top culinary experience where you have a taste of the diverse creativity of the chef.

Was a great dinner! Well located in the 9 strassen Quartier. We have chosen the 5 course menu. All of them small portions, enough to taste and fell good. Nice service as well. I recommend

Very surprising restaurant !! Absolutely not a traditional italian restaurant even if inspired by Italy of course. Now the choice is quite limited as you actually have to chose between a 4,6 or 8 menu courses with maximum two choices by course (so be sure you'll enjoy the menu before you go), but what you get in your plate is...

Why Italian cuisine is not working good when it tries to become 'modern'? I went to Bussia for the lunch. I loved the space and the service as well. Their wine list was very much impressive. The presentation of the food overall was good. But the course itself had too much cream after cream. I almost felt uncomfortable in my... More

Went here for our New Year's Eve meal. It was a set six course menu. The food was lovely and I would visit again to try the normal menu.

Good to be back. The menu offers many interesting Italian and beyond combinations and well considered menus, brilliantly executed. This, combined with a great list of Italian wines and enthusiastic staff make it a perfect place to dine.

This was my third visit to Bussia. The first was amazing, the second even better but this time they somehow managed to top the first two. The servers are totally professional yet manage to be friendly, not an easy task. The flavors of the food are often unique and always amazing. The best way to describe it is that you... More

Went here based on TA reviews and we weren't disappointed. We chose the 4 course tasting menu. Really good value at 49 euro each. You get lots of little extras in between as well so although the portions are small you don't leave hungry. Staff are super friendly without being over bearing. They are really knowledgeable on the dishes and... More

For: excellent menu, which changes regularly fantastic service - very rare in NL beautiful preparation unassuming atmosphere central location easy to get a table for a Michelin starred restaurant Against: Clientele that can only communicate by shouting at each other, so very noisy and as such, less romantic. Nevertheless I still recommend it
