'Uitstekend', excellent is, in short, the verdict about the restaurant located in this bucolic brick building in the harbour of Harlingen in Friesland on the Dutch coast. Fine cuisine, arranged mainly around 3 - 6 course menus which feature modern and nuanced variations of meat,...More

Visiting Harlingen en route between Terschelling and Schiphol on a trip home to Hobart, Tasmania, I chanced upon this restaurant, set across from the ferry terminal in a beautiful brick and blue-tiled building at the harbour.

We were thrilled to find a Micheline restaurant in Friesland and we’re excited to have a good dinner. We sat down for 15 minutes before anyone came to our table. Because we’d read the reviews on TripAdvisor we knew there was a surprise menu and...More
