Prinseneiland, Nov. 3, 2017—
VUURTORENEILAND: lighthousetowerisland. You take a packet-boat for nearly an hour, with aperitif, appetizers, maybe a cocktail on board. You walk a few meters with the rest of the evening's clientele from boat-dock to reception, lantern in hand.

You're shown to an elegant underground dining room, formerly a bunker on this otherwise empty island. And then several courses unfold, each with its well-chosen wine.

A couple of hours later, maybe longer, it's regretfully time to get back on the boat and cruise back through the moonlight to Amsterdam — last dessert and a glass of wine, of course; maybe a genever or some other digestive.

No way to describe this magical evening here. It is one of the Five Restaurants. For details, look at a longer description (caution: 46 MB)
