We stumbled on this charming restaurant quite by accident, liked the look of it and decided to return for an evening meal. From the moment we entered we felt transported to another world, with its atmosphere or unpretentious charm and hospitality. The food was excellent, the service thoughtful and responsive, and the whole environment intimate and homely.
The highlight of our stay.

We made a booking at Pomperlut for a Saturday evening at 8pm having researched favourable reviews on this website. Total disappointment. Despite confirming our booking well in advance and again on the day before arrival, the owner decided simply to give away our table. We arrived merely 15 minutes late having had to take shelter from the rain and co-ordinate the meeting of two independent couples. No attempt was made to contact us. This ruined our evening as it was too late to make a second reservation anywhere popular. We urge fellow customers who value the importance of the reservation system to avoid Pomperlut and to show them the same level of contempt. A terribly poor example of customer service.

The meal was lovely - very well cooked, but what made it so lovely was the atmosphere/environment. Highly recommended.

Peter and brother Guido were made for this business. The 1600's building with fireplace blazing and only about eight tables only added to the charm. The food was delicious and Peter was able to describe the dishes in English, French and Dutch. And he has a great sense of humor. He also suggested the perfect wine with our duck. You need to book in advance. There are starters, mains and desserts. It is not pretentious and they make you feel very welcome-even though we were soaking wet from the rain.

Food quality could not have been better with every dish prepared and presented with care and attention to detail. Service by the charming,if mildly eccentric patron, was friendly and efficient. The menu is decided on the day according to seasonal availability and quality of produce. This means the menu is limited to a few choice for each course. Visitors need to be aware that this may mean there isn't something on the menu to suit everyone. The night of our visit three out of four menu choices were fish and the fourth (both starter and mains) were duck; plus LOTS of asparagus. A bit limiting for many diners. That said, everything was perfectly cooked and the restaurant itself was a delightful setting for a lovely evening.
