This bright, stylish, informal, and vegetarian-friendly restaurant is on one of the city's broadest canals and has a long-standing reputation for high quality at a great price. You can select à la carte or from a nicely priced three- or four-course menu costing €31.50 and €36, respectively. Indulge in, say, a mackerel salad marinated with onions, raisins, and pine nuts, or a Scottish roast lamb with thyme and string beans. The inspired choices show a global sweep
but invariably come to rest within the borders of France, Great Britain, and the Netherlands. But do tuck into one of the mountainous grand desserts, including the "heavenly mud" mousse of dark and white chocolate that gives the restaurant its name.

My second visit to this ex squat turned exciting and interesting restaurant. A mixed gay/straight group of customers with attentive but not over the top service - as I like it. Excellent food and a place to repeat visit whenever in Amsterdam.
