Very welcoming ambiance, at the "chef table" situated in a private area in front of the kitchen. Well balanced menu with great wines. My kids enjoyed every single course.....that's a big big plus! Very attentive and personal service, yet discrete.Value for money at its best. Happy festive season!

We ate at Apicius with some friends end of June, this was a very pleasant and exquisite experience and I have therefore given maximum number of points. We did not have the a la carte but went for a set menu of 6 dishes, . This is a 1 Michelin star restaurant in a small village, very picturesque, it is... More

The menu sounded very good but we found the food had no wow factor you expect from a restaurant with Michelin stars. The atmosphere was poor, too many tables too close. I had a flower display taking up half my table placing that was imitation. Not something I expect with fine dining. The whole restaurant needs updating, it's cold with... More

If you are a 'foodie' and like to splurge yourself occassionally, Apicius is definitely worth a visit. It's been rewarded with a Michelin star, so the standard is high. And so are the prices, but the value for money balanced. The table attendants and the setting are quite formal but that's probably inherent in having a Michelin star.

This was the second time we visited the restaurant. First time we were a bit disapointed, but that was when it had just opened its doors. The menu sounded spectacular, but the chef was far to carefull. The last time, about a week ago, was quite different. Beautifull well balanced 6 course menu with beautifull and flavours and structures. Reasonably... More

Only went once, but it was over-rated as far as we were concerned. Food was ok, service ok, but nothing special.

Being at Apicius for the second time was a bit of a gamble. First time i got there, the place was empty. This time most tables were taken. The chefs menu was our choice. With a nice Poully Fume (ladouchette). The wine was not too expensive. And tasted great. The 'amuses' were ok. But the appetizers were great. Cocquilles, lobster... More

Visiting Apicius about 1-2 times a year it is a real gem situated near the shore and beaches in Bakkum in the west of Holland. The service is exemplary and the food very good. Prices are steep, but worth the money. Recomended.

Need I say more: a two star restaurant and well deserved. Great food, great wine, relaxing atmosphere. When in the neighbourhood (and in the possesion of a credit card with a high limit) stop by and treat yourself.

This restaurant is Castricum's(Bakkum) 2 star michelin restaurant. The food is spectacular as you would expect. The decor was the only thing for me to be a bit drab though one might say that is part of this winner's unpretentious charm!
