Den Hague, (Holland) Netherlands
Debbie and Rachel went biking in Holland and Belgium. The following review is written by Debbie.

This hip restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel, the Des Indes, who made our reservation.

We walked over and were delighted to find contemporary Dutch cuisine in a small restaurant with tables on "stages," giving the restaurant floor lots of different heights and a feeling of spaciousness. The bar was hopping.

Since every meal was delicious and larger than we were used to eating, Rachel and I decided to order three different plates and share.

The waitress insisted we order the bread, which was delicious. We then tried the small plates of Moroccan Eggplant salad with goat cheese, Harissa dressing and cashews; the Thai coconut-lime soup with tiger prawns and shiitake mushrooms; and the pancakes with duck confit, spring onions, scallion and Hoisin sauce.

All the wait staff kept coming over to check on us and to see how we liked the "tastes." We did!

Upon their recommendation, for dessert we ordered their special Tonka Bean ice cream with Almond Caramel Crunch Lukewarm.

Excellent and fun.
