We found this spot on TripAdvisor. When we arrived it was very quiet. But we could soon see the locals arriving,confirming our choice for the evening. Raymond and Tanja went through a lot of trouble for us,what a pleasant couple. And the food was delicious.

The bistro is an informal French specialities restaurant with a menu which changes with the seasons. The restaurant also boasts a very extensive wine list. De Pimpernel is open every day from 17.00 pm except Sundays.
