Fantastic. Best restaurant in town
The food was amazing. We went for a 5 course menu, and during 3 hours we enjoyed different delicious (little) works of foodart. In between courses, we got little appetizers or amuses. I particularly liked the chef's take on "broodje Mario" which was a one bite amuse of the famous sandwich which has long been a staple in the diet of every student in Utrecht. It really brought back the memories...The atmosphere is quasi formal, located in a hotel that used to be a monastery. It's very cool that some of the elements are still visible. The waitingstaff is very attentive (though their English was a bit disappointing). The cost is rather high tho, but every now and then, or for special occasions, it's very much worth it. One annoyance, however, was the lighting. They used cheap LEDs (or a cheap dimmer) in their chandelier, which caused a flickering effect. At times the light would even go out for half a second. I know this can cause headaches for some people (or worse if you are suffering from epilepsy), and generally does not fit the higher end feel of the restaurant. All in all I had a great time.
Sublime. Not French at all, innovative and experimental dishes with a range of influences. One of the more memorable places to have visited. (Don't let the old school interior put you ill at ease, the food is very contemporary and full of twists)
