Excellent but ...

We just had dinner over Easter at Bordewijk. We liked what we saw of the simple interior throught the big old style street window and the slightly arty interior. The menu uses unusual foods : pigeon, liver, lamb brain, ... but other more usual ingredients too. The starter and mains were... read more

Am regular customer, often selecting this place for business and privately. Food is always good. Good selection of wines. Nice menu that is being updated but favorites remain. Nice atmosphere. The only note, think it could use an upgrade on the interior, the nonchalant style could turn some clients away, especially when business dining is involved. Another hopefully temporary issue...

I really liked the personal touch of the chef coming to the table to explain the daily menu himself. It's clear that he's passionate about his restaurant and the food that he creates. I had the 3 course daily menu with cheese, but others in my party ordered a la carte (and, of course, I tried everything!). The tuna carpaccio,... More

Empty table outside on a saturday was available but when i asked to use it for 3 was told only if we had 3 courses! When i asked why we could not just have main courses was told by the rude waitress she was too busy to discuss! So beware as this restaurant wants your money and customer service comes... More

Long time since I have visited my favorite restaurant. Glad to see it is still doing very well. Wonderful dinner. Great Savigny les Beaunes with monk fish. (yes, you COULD make a more logical choice, but not a nicer one) I was sorry I did not try the venison that was part of the menu. Beautiful cheese afterwards. Perfect dinner... More

We found this place by pure chance, what a treasure it proved to be. It was patronised almost exclusively by locals, but is clearly one of the upmarket "in" places to eat. The food was superb and the cheese selection far too good to miss, even though I'm sure it kept me awake. Give it a try, you won't be... More

Not sure how - but we found ourselves in this restaurant with our 2 kids (15, 11) and our particular food preferences (3 of us don't eat meat, 2 don't eat shellfish, one doesn't eat any meat but chicken). We immediately realized it wasn't the right place for us - but stuck with it till the happy end! In the... More

We went to this restaurant for our anniversary and had a wonderful time. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. The food was excellent from the amuse-bouche through to dessert. They have an excellent range of choices and we had both fish and meat dishes and they were equally excellent. After a large meal we finished with a dessert... More
