  • No wonder that this was developed by the Dutch as a fort to guard over the harbour below. Wonderful vistas by night and by day.  more »
  • Best meal I've ever had! Went on week of Restaurant Week, the salad was simple and perfect, the wonderful and the file side dishes and dessert too. The service is very nice and the atmosphere is very interesting, worth a table on the balcony to watch the sunset.

  • We only came for the view, which is great during the day and must be spectacular at night. We didn't go to the restaurant but the menu looked delectable.
  • Great location, marvellous view, excellent service. Best of the best 😉
  • Great views over the bridge! Good food and nice ambiance. Great personel. Historic building
  • The food is extremely expensive if you consider the amount of food you receive.
  • The best food I have ever eaten. Better every time I go and the view is breathtaking.
