Amuse 4 - salad of couscous, smoked eel and carrot puree - excellent. Amuse 5 - mushroom soup and quial egg - very good. Starter - tartare of wild salmon, salmon ice cream, salmon mousse and radish. Excellent, high in originality and harmonious. Main - guinea fowl, pear, endives, mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. Dessert - vanilla icre cream. A solid 1* restaurant. Would I go back? Yes, and the service was excellent.
Gouden Harynck: Amuse 1 - codfish ... nothing fancy and a little over salted. A poor version of bacalhau not the best way to start a meal. Amuse 2 - salmon gravallate with a sorrel dressing. Starter 3 - tuna cerviche with egg plant puree and carrot. Main - pheasant with saffron, chutney and parsnip puree. This was very good, especially the smokiness of the puree and the combination the flavors. Dessert - trio of chocolates. Would I go back? No, once is enough.
