Damn good. Popular restaurant with a younger crowed. Chicken is delicious and side dishes nice. Sometimes a bit under staffed though.

Really great food and drinks - a little bit of a wait, but had a beer at the bar to pass the time. Everything was freshly made and cooked to order.

Wanneer de zon opkomt krijgen de kippen vers water en pikken ze gestrooide granen. Deze granen zijn 100% plantaardig. De kippen krijgen geen groeibevorderaars toegediend en zijn antibioticavrij. ’s Avonds rusten de kippen.
