“Delicious good and very friendly staff”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Great location in Middelburg! We chose the five corse surprise menu and it was delicious, balanced and the staff was really friendly and welcoming during our stay. We can highly recommend this resto! And if ever back in Middelburg, we'll be back.

“Truly memorable experience”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

My wife and I ate here on a recent trip to Middelburg. We booked ahead and received a well located table in front of one of the main windows, in what is a cosy little restaurant (winter time) with warm candles, cool decor and nicely laid out floorplan. The menu offered to us was all in Dutch but we had already decided to take the 5 course surprise menu. Each course was exceptional, both in terms of flavour and presentation and, although small, we enjoyed each and were well satisfied by the end of the meal.

Attentive staff, everything was well explained to us in English, we never felt rushed or ignored. Although we paid for bread and water (something that is standard across the Netherlands) the overall cost was quite reasonable and we consider perfect value for money considering the quality of the meal. The only negative would to remark that the chairs are of hard plastic and become slightly uncomfortable over the course of a 2 hour meal!

We are not gastronome's by any stetch and have only eaten in a handfull of Michelin stared restaurants, but can truly say that this was a great dining experience. My wife was so taken that she carefully noted down the details of each course for posterity's sake. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Middelburg and we would gladly dine here on any future trips.

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Recommended by the owner of a recently established B&B (not yet in Trip Advisor) this proved to be a fine choice. It combines elegance (without excess), calm, an interesting menu - the food turned out to be really good, good wines at good prices and charming service. Very happy with our dinner (we did not go for the "surprise" menu but chose from the list) and the stuffed calamari was brilliant, the fish absolutely fresh and prepared just right and the desserts excellent. It was a good evening out.

“Nice restaurant”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

Nice restaurant. The surprise menu is worth trying 5 cources with some surprises indeed. Portions are rather small but the quality high. Staff is friendly and patient.

“The best restaurants in Middelburg”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

We have been eating here for years and everytime it is of the same high standard.
The fish dishes are fresh and simple, but great.
Wheather permitted the seating outside is nice on this Beautifull square.
Inside it is modern and well furnished.
Highly recommended.
