Cindy and Jarno offer You the best dinner You can wish. A perfect ambiance in an old Saxion farmhouse. Friendly staff. 2 Michelin stars highly recommended and only 1,5 hrs. driving from Amsterdam.

Nothing much to say other than that this is a very competent 2 star level restaurant. Unlike some places which make you question the Michelin guide, this place shows exactly why the Michelin guide is helpful at times. Dishes were nicely consistent at a very high level with nothing that stood out positively (no 3 star worthy dishes) or negatively. Prices are pretty fair for this level of cooking. Would strongly recommend to fans of good classical cooking.

It is not always that 2stars restaurant is behaving like a posh establishment. This restaurant welcomed us and the children (aged 10, 7 and 5) open armed. We had three different kind of amuse bouce: oyster, consomme, eel and ravioli and filet americain. All very nice and made it interesting to see what else was coming. We opted for the 4 course lunch, which was faultless in preparation. Starter was chicken with a cream of foie gras. Followed by codfish with beetroot. Main was deer, and dessert was sorrel icecream. Normally i am not a fan of ice, but this was prepared very well. The children were allowed in the kitchen to prepare their owe desserts.

Wine choice was extensive, and large menu to choose from.

Overall price was not cheap, but well worth the money.

Two Michelin stars, it is difficult to get a higher accolade.
It showed from the large number of guests. They seem to come from all over the Netherlands to this ‘far’ corner of the country.
The restaurant is housed in an old, stylish farm. Mind your head if you step onto the terrace!
The restaurant closes on Mondays and Tuesdays.
The meal started with a fabulous array of amuses. The courses were served with aplomb and tasted what one would expect from a restaurant of this calibre. This is a place for fine dining all evening long. And they obviously strife to be different from the rest. What is more: they succeed.
The cherry on the pie was that the chef drove us personally back to our hotel. Of course by then he had finished in the kitchen. What a service.

We did not choose anything here but we just asked for a vegan dinner because one of us lives a vegan lifestyle. So we gave a free choice to the kitchen. And it appeared to be no problem at all for this restaurant. We got some nice starters and after that six courses and they were all amazing. Very beautiful arrangements on every plate with a perfect balance of taste. Also the wines where top. I don't write exactly what we were eating and drinking because you have to try this restaurant yourself - it's here all close to perfection. I was only jealous on the table next to us because I saw the choice of cheeses they got offered (I love cheese). I was very happy with my food and next time I will try the not vegan food. Also our vegan guest was very satisfied and could hardly believe the quality of the food. This restaurant cannot disappoint you - if you love food.
