Excellent aussie experience

Great food, unique food and a great experience. One of my favorite restaurants. It's possible to eat all kinds of different authentic Australian animals and it taste great. Only complaint that it is a bit noisy. But that is mainly because it so popular

We went there based on the good critics on Tripadvisor, and were quite lucky to get a table for two on the Saturday evening, as the restaurant was packed. We wrote an e-mail in the morning, they called back and proposed us a table, very efficient and nice. We decided to try a 5 course surprise menu. The first course... More

A little taste of Australia in Heemstede! We went with a group of friends and we all had the tasting menu... Absolutely delicious! Food & wine were great, service fantastic and the place itself had excellent atmosphere. Have recommended to several friends and we will most definitely come here again!

Great value for money, very friendly service. The menu is unexpected and suits all tastes. The crocodile bitterballen are to die for...and the wines too. Make sure you book in advance.

That is what the title of this review is. And Southern Cross definitely went beyond my expectations. I was with a friend who's from Ozzieland herself and she was surprised. All the food is imported from Australia and the chef gave a Dutch twist to the 'Bitterballen' with crocodile in it, and the kangaroo was also delicious to the fullest,... More

Great food, great service, great staff. We devoured our meals, then (half) joked about the small portions. 10 minutes later...2 extra main courses, served with a smile! But don't just take my word for it. Go and find out for yourselves.

We've had dinner at Southern Cross several times a year, since it has opened its doors in 2002. Chef Peter and his wife Natasja run a perfect place. You're welcomed as soon as you enter. Atmosphere breathes Australia, staff is experienced, friendly and knows how guests want to be treated. It is fine-dining at his best. The menu has a... More
