products

a concise menu with very good food, and dishes are impeccably presented. a huge, huge plus...

clientele

not exactly the place where one runs into the canal district's hipster demographic as this place pulls a much older crowd. we suggest you bring your mp3-player and headphones if you like it funky.

service

clean-cut boys and girls who go the extra length to please, a rare feat in this city...

interior

the restaurant is located in the carriage house of a rather grand historic 18th-century mansion. the interior is contemporary and apart from a series of rather ghastly wall-mounted sculptures it's a nice place. there's a terrace and beautiful garden at the back, perfect for al fresco dining in summer.

it's far off the beaten track, has no hipster x factor whatsoever, but is a gem all the same.
