by the location: seaview bonus but to be honest, my eyes were more focused on what was being served ;)
by the service: restaurant with a star but i expected it to be stiff and formal experience but boy was i wrong! Service is impeccable, friendly, correct and very attentive!
and last BUT NOT least: the food!! WAUW!!!
Art on a plate, interesting combinations and so very tasteful!
Very pricey but absolutely worth the experience!

We recently dined at Bartholomeus at the suggestion of a Belgium lawyer friend on a Monday evening in mdi May. Everything from the greeting at the door, the table, the setting near the beach to most importantly the food was top notch. Hard to find a good restaurant open on Mondays it seems and this one was beyond our expectations. We found the cuisine innovative and the quality and presentation of the food were fabulous. I would highly recommend Bartholomeus to all those interested in fine cuisine wonderfully executed and presented.

I totally agree with Britto R, this is one of the best restaurants in Europe. We go there 2 tot 3 times a year and we have never been disappointed. Very friendly service and yes Bart's creativity surprises us again and again, every time we think this can not be better but his drive to perfection is just incredible.

Having been to several of the top 50 restaurants in the San Pelligrino we can only say that Bartholomeus would certainly deserve his place, much better than some of the restaurants visited in Londen and Paris.

It was a shame that Michelin waited that long giving Bart and Sandra their wel deserved second Michelin star this year. And it would not surprise us that the third star is only a matter of time. Just perfect!

We went for my 40th birthday to have lunch there. We were welcomed immediately at the door and someone helped us with our coats. We were guided to our table (with seaview). We sat there for about 10 or 15 minutes without anybody coming to our table. So my husband asked one of the waiters to already have a glas of champagne and he responded that only the lady host comes with the menus. My husband said he understands that, but that we wanted to enjoy already a glass of champagne. After having received one, the lady host came to our table with the card. We picked the Bartolomeus menu with 5 courses (@ 84 euro + 37 euro for wine). I have to say that the courses looked like sublime pictures. Almost to beautiful to eat. Excellent combinations of different tastes. The sauce of one of the courses (with meat) was very salty, so we drank a lot of water to wash it away. The service is good. You can see that they are trained pleople working in a high class restaurant, but the friendlyness is not that much. The only friendly man there was in the restaurant, was Bart himself who came and say hello to every table in the restaurant. The others were reserved and were busy being professionnally, but without any smiles. It was a nice experience, but we won't go there again.

maybe i do not understand the concept but for me it missed the wauw effect. i had a diner with taste but it missed the wauw effect which i always hope to find in a 2 star rated restaurant.
the entrees and main course did not seduced me but on the other had the desserts did it well and this i really enjoyed.
The staff for me was partly giving a feeling of welcoming you and this included the Guestlady and her colleague .
But doing over 120 km of a diner i have to say not a this time for this like mentioned i missed the wauw effect
