This is an old building which has been lovingly restored. IJmuiden came out quite damaged from WW2 and a lot of buildings were taken down but luckily not this one. The owners put their hearts in it and it shows. The rest of the area is now being rebuilt but due to the lingering buildings from the time they needed... More

Together with friends we enjoyed an evening of interestingly prepared food of excellent quality attended by relaxed, assured staff. The atmosphere created is somehow reminiscent of a homely dining room but where you are not the one having to do the cooking. We loved it.

The restaurant is serving well prepared dishes, in a number of courses. All dishes are generally prepared very well. Staff is able to present some nice matching wines with the menu, which makes it even more interesting. Food is right quality/quantity/price level. As restaurants go in the IJmuiden area, this is definitely one of the best.

As often if we can we try to visit. The restaurant/hotel breathes art deco . Lovely items and a consistent way to present. The food / menu is allways an experience. With enough variety and change thru the seasons and even the opportunity to enjoy all this thru various special restaurant weeks at lowered rates. The staff shows that attention... More

Nice oxtail soup, salad, angus beef, iberico big and lamb and deserts followed by coffee with chocolate and pudding surprises. All three of us enjoyed our diner very much. The staff and management made us feel very welcome in a beautiful art deco dining room. It was busy but the noise level in the room was low. We will do... More

I had high expectations and the meal started great with nice vine and a tasty amuse-bouche. And then the main course: Lambleg with polenta, asparagus and gravy of lavas. I thought I would get a plate whit creamy polenta, meat falling from legbone and gravy but that was not it. In reality there was 2 tiny solid pucks of polenta,3... More

Four of us hired a taxi to have an evening meal at this restaurant - this had been recommended to me as a somewhat 'different' place - a bit on the quirky side, but serving excellent home made chips. As President of The Proper Chip Appreciation Society, I felt duty bound to travel to Ijmuiden from our hotel base on... More
