As you walk down the narrow alleyway to this gem, it's easy to be misled by its unassuming exterior. Students, concertgoers from the nearby Vredenburg Music Center, and fashionable young locals come here for generous portions of grilled meats, excellent salads, and an unusually large vegetarian range. The atmosphere is cozy, friendly, and informal, and the rear half opens out into a breezy conservatory with panoramic views through glass walls and ceiling panels. In the
walled garden at the back, a 180-year-old beech tree towers over everything. The green décor inside echoes the foliage, creating an oasis of calm away from the bustle of the city.
