Wonderful music and atmosphere

Had a great New Years Eve here, watching the Jazz band whom were excellent !! Traditional Dutch snacks were served and a great selection of beers (and many other drinks). Friendly staff, a good atmosphere.

Traditional Dutch pub that also serves food. Menu was all in Dutch, but with our basic Dutch and a bit of help from the waiter we managed . I had soup which was very good, followed by a green salad, which was probably meant to be a side dish, but was the right portion size for me. My husband had... More

Caught this restaurant on a live music night with a local band, who were great. The food was good too - imaginative and well presented. Gold stars to the staff as well - they worked hard to make sure everything was right for a pair of tourists with no Dutch who needed to dissect the menu to avoid allergy risks.... More

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
