Very good food en nice portugeze wines. We had the surprise menu with good fish en beef. The most food is from the island. Next time when we are on Terschelling, we come back.

We dined here during Easter weekend. We were very impressed by the chefs menu and the excellent wine pairings offered. Very interesting flavours and excellent use of local, seasonal ingredients. Highly recommended.

A wonderful night out! Perfect food with fresh local products and a wonderful service. We liked the place: cosy, urban touch, and modern local touch. A shame we didn't stay at the hotel. But for sure we will next time.

This should at least be a MIchelin Bib Gourmand. Local oysters, mussels, fish, vegetables, herbs and flowers from their own garden. Beautifully presented and prepared. The 4 course is not too much. Live a litte!
