What a great place this is. Worth looking for it and book when you know you will be in the area. Ticks every box. Totally recommend De Vitrine for several reasons: 1. Cozy little bar area to eat or have a drink before lunch or...More

Maybe my expectations were to high but I did not feel satisfied when leaving the restaurant. First the decoration: non existing. They used an old butcher shop and put some tables in it, and there you go you have a restaurant. It is original but...More

I visited De Vitrine for the 3rd time at the end of January. I had been raving to my friend about how amazing the restaurant was (I posted a rave review here after my first trip). The food is still great, but we had very...More
