We stopped for lunch after a visit to the Zeewse Museum. We set upstairs, it was nicely busy. Fast service, average food, nice ambiance.

Very cosy restaurant in the heart of Middelburg under "de Lange Jan" you can't miss it and you don't want to miss it. There is not very much choice on the menu, but what's on it, it's great and brought on your plate in a very nice way. For the ones who like a bear, there are a few very... More

We enjoyed our evening at Desafinado. We were lucky to be there on a night with live music. The ambiance was great and there is a nice spot to sit outdoors.

We had such a good lunch here that we decided to go back for dinner and were not disappointed. We ordered the 3 course menu at 32.5 euros per person which proved to be excellent value and was delicious.

A group of us visited Desafinado one evening, lured by its calling itself a jazz café, and its location on the pretty square next to the Abbey. It seems however that jazz is only on every other Wednesday, so that was the initial disappointment. We decided to hang around anyway, and have a beer and something to eat. The waiter,... More

Surprisingly good food, which was absolutely worth the money. The night was ruined by a long wait (more than 35 minutes) between two courses. When confronted, the waiter frowned and said that was our own fault because we changed an order. This particular waiter couldn't keep up with the ambitions of the kitchen which was a shame.

We were at Desafinado on 31 July at lunchtime, celebrating my mother's birthday. The toasts were good and the price paid was fine. So was the local beer. But we had three ceasar salads which were composed of 20 grams of bacon, 10 "croutons" with a lot of garlic, 5 grams of second rank parmigiano, one egg, and an awful... More

One of the (very few) restaurants in Middelburg. Scenic view of the square but often windy and cold. Very good for money if you came from more expensive european town.
