Fodor's Review

For more than a quarter century, this former garage has been a brasserie owned by the Dutch celebrity chef Joop Braakhekke–-the transformed space is now awash in red-plush seating and mirrored walls—perfect for local glitterati who like to see and be seen. The menu uses French haute cuisine as its starting point and the steak tartare prepared at table is a favorite. Other choices include pressed duck, coq au vin, and poulet noir, along with more modern dishes like the tuna pizza. There is plenty of champagne, fine wine, and caviar to prove this place is posh, but the daily, two-course power-lunch menu is quite reasonably priced at €26.50.
