Envy: Italian gastronomy prepared before your eyes


You'd almost believe you were in an Italian grocery. The beautiful decor is accompanied by excellent cuisine.

For several years now this very fashionable restaurant has been awarded a ‘Bib Gourmand,' the Michelin guide's distinction awarded to potential starred restaurants.

Creative cuisine, hip decor, beautiful plate presentation, muted atmosphere: Envy has many qualities. The dining room recalls an Italian grocery shop with its windowed refrigerators displaying a rich selection of cheeses and deli meats.

Chef Michael Wolf prides himself on the fact that his cooks work under the eyes of the customers. He offers, among many other things, langoustines accompanied by creamed peas. Try the Black Angus filet grilled with red port sauce, unless of course you prefer the surprise menu. Excellent cocktails, such as the passion fruit, lime, and vodka Caipiroska, are on offer.

In the summer, eat on the terrace facing the canal.
