First things first, we very much enjoyed the food. However, we were very disappointed about the overall service. It started with the apéritif, a glas of champagne suggested by the sommelier. While you would expect the price for an apéritif to be 10 to 15 € in a 1* restaurant, they charged 24 €. I think with that price tag you would expect that they communicate it, as this 100 ml glas ramped up the bill by 23% (we had the all-in menu for 110 € booked). At least the extra cheese course had a decent price for excellent cheeses.
We had the accompanying wines, served by the sommelier who was in need of confirmation. "Isn't this wine good?" "That is a great wine!" Really? Actually we were not so convinced by the "pairings".
In the end, we got the coffee and "friandises" which were "included": 2 dark chocolate pralinés from Valrhona. Apparently the tables around us had booked the 40 € cheaper menu which was not all-in. They got a proper selection of pralinés, petit fours, and homemade ice cream with their coffee. We felt a bit second class having paid all-in.
So the suggestion would be: under no cirumstances book the all-in offer, it really does not worth it. The price for the regular Heerlijk menu is fine, though.
However, if you want a really outstanding service, there are better Michelin restaurants very close by...
