W had the pleasure of dining here on the occasion of my wife's birthday. The dishes were wonderful, well balanced.
Since our last visit more than a year ago (too long ago really), De Vrienden have been able to further improve the dining experience. The amuse is brought and explained by the chef himself, something that I really appreciate. The food was excellent as always. We have never been disappointed even if we have very high expectations.

Dinner starts with the chef himself coming to explain the novelty amuse: enticing. Dinner is interrupted, of course, for two minutes silences for Remembrance Day, for which the music/Muzak was silenced. Unluckily, the Muzak returned! Please turn it off, it is so 20th century.

I had dinner here during a company meeting recently and I thoroughly enjoyed the prix fixe menu provided. There was one course after the other of deliciously creative food. Fantastic!
