At the marina the view is stunning. You can eat outside on the terrace by the water, or inside if it's too cold. The food is beautiful, service very personal and quick. Interesting dishes, prettily served and a huge, I mean HUGE wine selection. With a special person to guide you through the selection if you need help. This is... More

We had a lovely dinner with friends. The design of the restaurant is cozy and warm. The food decor was lovely however we felt the taste was rather bland. We did not feel our dinner was worth the money value.

The restaurant is located at the marina in Den Haag/Scheveningen. Outside seating available in summertime. Restaurant has a nice ambiance and clean bathrooms. Service was excellent except we had to wait quite a long time for the entrees to be served. Quality was good, but not very special. Across the road from the restaurant is a low cost parking garage...

If you enjoy a good wine list and good seafood this is an excellent choice. For the starter I would stay away from the fish and recommend the porkbelly and foie gras.

Went there for a work dinner. Nice decor but the food isn't fantastic despite the pride affected by the waiter "was it delicious?" He kept asking... Strange. Very expensive. Service is not so good. There is a lot better around.

We have really enjoyed the quality of the food, the atmosphere and the absolute great service! We took the 3 course menu, including the wine arrangement. Great combinations and value for money.

This restaurant serves excellent food in a very nice environment; close to Scheveningen harbour where one can feel like being on holiday whilst in the own country. The smoked tuna starter is definitely recommendable! Staff is very nice and attentive. The wine list shows excellent wines. The interior of the restaurant is absolutely tasteful (good seats!). From an acoustic point... More
