Very good ambiance, course (presentation) and hospitality.
The use of unique flavour combinations and ingredients linger for more!

Nice dedicated staff that provided good service and the kitchen had a lot of nice and varied food to please us with.
The wine paired good to the food. A pleasant journey that added a highlight to our trip (6 friends on weekend trip)

Always a pleasure to eat at Niven’s restaurant. I love the focus on vegetables and serving a multitude of small dishes. So warmly recommended.

Great food (as usual), great service. Moreover, they always come up with nice surprises that make you want to go back again!

It would be great if they extend a bit more the list of wine per glass.

Really delicious, so many little extra courses, everything looked like a work of art. We added in the optional extra main course but skipped the cheese and it was the perfect amount. The green bean carbonara is incredible.

Food was good, fair for the price with the discount, but without we would have found it expensive. There was a gift and a birthday card on our table, but we confessed it wasn't either of our birthday, and the gift sadly got taken away. Enjoyed the service, waiters were friendly, dealt well with a child who was lying on the floor playing on his iPad while it was charging (asked if he wanted them to charge it at the bar). It took a long time to finish dinner though, we started at 7, didn't finish until after 11 which was a bit late for us. We will likely go again sometime.

amuses were excellent; fish & meat courses were perfectly correct but nothing creative; setting and service were excellent; marvelous spot for a pleasant evening with friends, but main courses were not unusual or really special ...

The food was delicious and creative. We loved the tiny dishes. The service was among the best we’ve experienced and they were attentive to our different food needs. They had an interesting wine list with good prices. Would happily go back again!

Great food but way too slow! More than 4 hours for a dinner is just too much. At time every table around us was waiting on their food...

Horrible food. Almost nothing to appreciate about it. Out of the 10 courses only 2 were eatable. It's a pity cause the location is nice and the staff well trained.

Our first Michelin star experience in the Netherlands, so we had high expectations.


Food was minimalist in presentation, but had some good flavor profiles.


Dining experience was 4 hours long for 10 courses, which is slow, even by European standards. Seated next to a fire-escape with a semi-repaired wall 2 feet away, so that lowered the ambience level a little.


General impression was it felt pretentious & overpriced for what was served.


We found the degree of minimalism to be a little too extreme for our liking, even though we typically eat very small portions. Deserts were much larger than main courses, which was disappointing - in fact the home made peppermint slice I had upon leaving was twice the size of any of the first three appetizers.
