What can I say.
The view of the river is spectacular but the food and service are equally so.
Had a great welcome and immediate seating and feeling like a member of the family.
The 5 courses we had were all winners with both great presentation but also great tastes.
The dorado was incredible.
The foie gras was just to die for.
The confit young chicken leg just carried your tastes to a different height.
Vanilla souffle was a cloud of taste in your mouth.
Wines were very well selected.
Service beyond GOOD .
WE had eaten here 8 years ago and were not impressed.
NOW it has taken itself to totally different level of excellence.

Nice spring evening, excellent view! Even better food. Relaxed! Set menu, all top quality! Wines to go with that. Not all top, but interesting combinations with dishes.

Great reception for family of 4. Easy choice of menu as there’s 5 dishes to choose from. If you don’t like (which would be impossible in our view) they will create something for you. Best patisserie

At the spur of the moment, my husband remembered he was here 50 years ago and wanted to return to see if it was as good as half a century ago ( it was better!). And my friend had always wanted to go because her step-family had celebrated all important events right there. I had never heard of the place....
We called, drove an hour and parked the car next to the hotel. We were welcomed by the boss, I was immediately enchanted by the view: the Rijn at our feet... How I longed for a warm summer evening and eat outside....Well, we will just have to come back in summertime.
We were shown to a homely corner in the first room, where we were served two amuses.
another party sat in front of the fireplace and a larger group in a different corner.
Even before we drank our first sip our quiet dog was served fresh water and he loved it!
So did we! How nice we did not have to leave him in the car, as we had expected to...
On the contrary. "Boef" - as the restaurant boss referred to every dog - was given such a warm welcome!
When we were invited to our table, the bread was warm and the Bubble water cold with even - as I had asked- a large amount of ice
The dinner was exquisite -see pictures.
We had a lovely evening. We asked for more bread I had to wait 14 minutes because that is how long it took to bake it! Soooo fresh - lovely...!
We will look forward to returning here - at the other side of our country....

It was a pleasure to have lunch here, not only the surroundings, the service and food is impeccable. We were treated with much attention and respect, meanwhile enjoying a wonderfully prepared surprise menu- the desert was fabulous. A souffle of red pepper with cardemon ice cream- to die for. Will definitely come back! Highly recommended.
