    The food was really tasty and nice. We appreciated all the flavour such as a delicious and surprising veg dish called beetroot and dessert witha collection of mousse and ice cream flavour like lavender associated with nice strawberries. We had a great time there

    Excellent kitchen, professional service and cousy restaurant. It has all the ingredients for the perfect evening. The wine collection is outstanding. The only point of improvement I have for them is the time between courses. It could be shorter. We will come back.

    Nothing to complain. Good food, cosy environment. Just nothing very special if that's what you are looking for.

    ood place for dinner. Nevertheless, I was expecting for a more menu. Good that we had the 50 % off, because for me the prices are to high for the originality of the plates. So, I don't think that would go back without the discount.

    Bistro Bree56

    We are happy to knop you enjoyed your diner! And lucky you for the discount ;-) Thank you for your message

    Food was fine, but not very special. The dessert was too sweet and no relief by the pairing with the dessert wine. Staff not very knowledgable on what was served, but they were very willing to come back with an answer.

    Bistro Bree56

    What is too sweet for one, can be perfect to another! Unfortunately our tastes did not match yesterday .. Nevertheless we hope you had an enjoyable evening.

    Outstanding experience. The menu was composed of 9 choices (3 starters, 3 main courses and 3 desserts) and we were amazed by the quality of the food and how posh it was presented. We loved it and it was a very agreeable evening!

    WoW thank you so much! See you again soon :-D ?
