This lovely restaurant is built inside an old church (not active anymore). Their excellent traditional food is creatively served with great use of herbs and various vegetables. Note: menus are available only on Frisen/Dutch/German. The host was very friendly and provided excellent explanations on the dishes (even to English-speaking tourists like us :)).

On our culinary cruise through Friesland we ate at many small chef-owned gourmet restaurants but this one lingers best in memory. Perhaps we didn't have a very high expectation for the little town of Wousend so were especially thrilled with this find. Housed in a pretty old mennonite church the hymn boards still in place and the bill presented in... More
