This 2 Michelin star restaurant in the centre of Rotterdam offers menus but you can also order a la carte. We had a 5 course menu. Wines suggested by each course, a wine pairing, was included.
The restaurant isn’t very spacious and the chairs are big so you feel a little the lack of space. But the chairs are very comforatble to sit in.
The aperative isn’t included in the menu and they charge 8 euro for a glass of chardonnay. A little bit over the top.
They serve some amuses and some bread. You can choose your own pepper and salt from boxes which is very particular. But to be honest after trying 2 kinds of salt it’s difficult to taste the difference.
The first amuse was a little icecream and that was delicious. I don’t think anything else from the dinner could compare with this. The first course was celeriac in two versions with a vinaegrette dressing and a beurre blanc sauce. I personally think one of the dressings was enough. And that’s the experience throughout the dinner. Too much different ingrediënts and tastes in one dish and the different taste are strong by themselves. So it’s a little bit an over excess in everything. Even the service at the table is mostly done by two. And considering the lack of space it gives you sometimes a uncomfortable feeling.
But the quality of the dishes are good, the staff is very friendly and the wines are terrific. And the maître is in his restaurant to keep an eye on everything. And that’s important for this kind of restaurants.
I definitly would recommend it as an experience, but wouldn’t go twice.
