I have a soft spot for good Indonesian food. My favourite being Rendang so I was a little disappointed to not see it on the menu. However the restaurant came highly recommended and I was happy to take a chance and ask. We arrived to find plenty of parking right outside, it's in the forest in a residential area so... More

This was one of our best meals in the Netherlands. The atmosphere was perfect and the menu did not disappoint. Each of us, including the kids, were completely satisfied all round. The rijstafel gave us a taste of everything which was very reflective of true indonesian food. Spandershoeve is definitely a "must eat" restaurant again and again.

If you like Indonesian food, you will love this restaurant. The atmosphere is quiet and stylish, with a touch old fashioned and the menu provides a rich choice of dishes that are simply delicious. The staff is making you feel at home - whether you come for a small lunch or for an elegant dinner. I am looking forward to... More

We have eaten at this Indonesian restaurant on several occasions in the last three years, and it never fails to please. Excellent food, and very good service. They make you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble.

I was fortunate to live not far away from this neighbourhood gem for many years. Being an expat in the Netherlands you quickly learn that Indonesian food is wonderful and the chef at Spandershoeve brings that cuisine to a new level. One can always get a good rijstafel at many Indonesian restaurants in the Netherlands but I like the creativity... More

This restaurant is in the middle of an unassuming neighborhood. I discovered it earlier this year, and always look forward to going back. The food is very good, and the service staff is friendly and attentive. I've added this to my must visit list, and recommend it to all of my colleagues. The rijsttafel is perfect to get a little...

Had dinner there a few weeks ago. I had never had Indonesian food so my expectations were no doubt high. I found the food quite unexciting a mix between Thai, Malaysian and Indian but it lacked punch and overall sophistication. Maybe it was me not understanding or appreciating it but still this was my interpretation. I would probably not go... More

Spandershoeve has been known for being the only Indonesian restaurant with a Michelin star. Those days have been long gone. The place looks shabby and old, the service is a bit too nonchalant and sloppy for my taste. The dishes are mediocre or good enough at best. Being married to an Indonesian family and travelling Indonesia on several occasions I... More

Really very good restaurant in the surprising location of Hilversum. The service was attentive and good without being overbearing, the venue very nice and, most importantly, the food was excellent. The dishes were well thought out, with fresh ingredients and imaginative recipes. Well worth a diversion to eat there,

Went to Spandershoeve as we were near Hilversum and were looking for a decent riistafel. Were a bit worried as we didn't have any decent clothes (one of those trips) and this looked high end (everyone was out for Saturday night), but we were welcomed by the owner and treated royally.
