We received a tip from a well traveled local, that this restaurant was not to be missed and we whole heartedly agree. We traveled by Uber from the airport (not cheap) and were greeted by Julie, the hostess, who seated us in a small private dining room with a view of the canal and bridge. It was just lovely. Our waiter Raul was wonderful. He was helpful, informative, attentive and funny. When we asked who would think of putting pepper in ice cream, he said, "the chef of course." Then brought us a long pepper since this was something unfamiliar to us. The ice cream was served with a chocolate cake and berry compote and was amazing. The starter of cauliflower and mushrooms was just out of this world. All of our dinners were delicious but the cod was especially good. This was a highlight of our trip to Northern Europe. We highly recommend this restaurant.
