Op zondag is het gratis parkeren bij Karel V. Op de parkeerplaats wordt het je al gauw duidelijk dat je niet bij de herberg om de hoek bent gearriveerd. De gestalde bolides, de meesten niet voorzien van Nederlandse kentekens zijn indrukwekkend. Dat is ook de entree en lange gang naar de bistro, waarbij je onderweg nog een blik kunt werpen op het grote restaurant dat zo voor de Euro top kan worden ingezet. Bij de bistro aangekomen word je keurig ontvangen, uit je jas geholpen en naar je tafel begeleid. Ook de inrichting van de bistro mag er zijn. Het zondagsmenu was dit keer niet verkrijgbaar, we namen de aanbevolen Sunday-roast van kalfsvlees. De voorgerechten van gans en de raviolo smaakten voortreffelijk, de tortellino, was er maar één en voelde zich daarom wat eenzaam in het diepe bord! Op het kaasplankje lagen kazen van boerderij de LIndenhoff uit Baambrugge die topprodukten aan de horeca levert. De bediening is heel goed, maar wel een tikje te formeel. Het mag allemaal wat meer ontspannen zijn.

I went to eat here with my husband and we had a four course meal. Since it is the summer we were seated in garden and it was absolutely beautiful! It gave me the feeling of when we were travelling in Tuscany and we sat outside each night, the garden is truly beautiful and there is enough seating out there that you don't have to fight for a table.

The food is very creative and the wine menu is done very well. In my starter which was raw mackerel in a chilled cucumber soup, I missed a bit of strength & separation in the taste and it ended up tasting mostly of the soup. With our main course which was a white fish with (pardon the bad translation) 'stewed meat' we had a chilled red wine, which was surprising and delicious. If you eat here I recommending getting coffee or tea after dinner - they have a fantastic plate of chocolates and home made macaroons that are drool worthy.

The service here was very fast, in terms of the staff being very attentive and making sure we were comfortable. Our glasses were never empty and everyone was kind and courteous.
