Friendly and professional staff in landmark Frisian restaurant. No menu but a set meal (vegetarian and other options) of 3 to 7 courses. Matching wines. Too die for!

Restaurant that advertises also with 'having a social impact'; we bought into that with the thought "always keen to support great social initiatives". The restaurant is large, high ceilings, but still very intimate and not noisy. Attentive staff; and unexpectedly great food made our evening wonderful !

Heerenveen is a quite unobtrusive,maybe even boring town in The Netherlands, but they have this exciting restaurant. The setting has the look of an old industrial building, but it actually used to be a technical school. It makes for an impressive decor. The food is a high standard, no wonder they are mentioned in the Michelin guide. If I have... More

A restaurant with great creativity and finesse, located in the somewhat unlikely location of Heerenveen. Definitely good if you are looking to celebrate a special occasion. You don't have a menu but rather you let the chef offer a multiple course tasting, which takes into consideration your dietary requirements. We have now been twice and were pleasantly surprised on both... More

Everything was perfect. A warm welcome, a ramp for the wheelchair, a large table in a pleasant environment, nice waiters, tasty drinks. And most important: The food! The way the food was arranged on the plate was Art. Edible Art. Delicious Art!

We definately enjoyed our meal at Het Ambacht! We were a group of 6 and there was only one other group dining the night we were there. The decor was very typical of what you fine in finer restaurants in Europe... a bit minimalistic but it looked elegant, not over the top. You have the option to choose how many... More

Het Ambacht is located in the entrance hall of a former school, so the ceilings high and the décor minimalist. It works surprisingly well, with generous space around each of the tables, just as well as you can be there for an 8 course taster menu. We opted for the entry level 3 course meal which came with an interesting... More
