Reviews from TripAdvisor


We passed this restaurant on the way back from Van Gogh Museum and were charmed by its subdued elegance and decided to give it a try for dinner. The restaurant is very elegant indeed with very comfortable velvet armchairs to relax in whilst eating, the view of the canal at night is breathtaking, the service is efficient and professional and the food is more than delicious. A limited but very tempting menu, we had the steak tartare and grilled lobster, which was fresh and perfectly cooked. Good choice of wines by the glass for moderate drinkers like us, incredibly good value. We were sorry to have to leave the next day, defintely recommend.

"Great food and great service"

Pleasant atmosphere and comfortable seating. Steak that cuts with your fork and cooked to perfection. Lobster bisque unlike anything in the States; a genuine compliment since i never order the bisque--too creamy. Service excellent and not intrusive. Will highly recommend.

"Lovely Lobster and Super Steak"

If you like lobster and steak you will be in surf and turf heaven in this cosy and attractively decorated little restaurant. The staff are charming and the food is just lovely. I’d recommend booking ahead because it does get very busy
