We had the Pizza Modena (pizza with salami, feta and I asked for avocado as well) and Pizza de Pollo (with chicken). The base is not too thick and very delicious!

Probably the best of fine dining in Bloem. A little pricey but you pay for what you get, great menu and always good service. Starters are interesting and mains are well portioned. If you want to spoil your partner this is the spot.
