When you're after nice food and nice beer, we think this is the place to go. We like the "baroque" style that allows you to pick several starters & mains & desserts of which they then serve small portions each (check website for more info)....More

We were a group of 7 so we tried the tasting menu (11 starters/15 main/9 desserts) and we didn't choose them, we got surprised. The food was absolutely amazing, and it was great having different choices. The dishes were large- more than enough for everyone....More

Beautiful restaurant situated in the center of the city, inside the ring. Very nice position and inside design. It's good for the relationship between price and food. The kitchen it is very traditional, is visible the French influences. Kind staff and beautiful waitress :D

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

significant as it is perennially popular. Whether

shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

Every season we have a different menu, with home made products like typical Belgian pates, pies and parfaits. Inspired by Belgium’s diversity, we invent and create our dishes. We put traditional Belgian products such as parsnip, purslane and chicory back on the menu.We also embrace the rich culture of Belgian beers. As a reward for our love of the combination of beer and delicious food, we had the honour to receive the Bier and Gastronomie award 2009, a national award for restaurants that combine different beers with good cuisine. Every time we review our menu, we put a lot of effort into finding the perfect combination for each dish.
