I have visited Het Pomphuis twice with different purposes and both times it was worth going there. Situated far from the touristic center, one should know about Het Pomphuis in order to go there and going there is possible by car. In a renovated building, the ambiance makes you truly enjoy your dinner or lunch while having a good talk... More

The location is very inspirational. It used to be the machine rooms of the pumps that were used to empty the harbour locks. The menu is varied and trendy. It is also easy to reach by car as you are outside the city center.

We had with a party of 7, a lovely evening meal in het Pomphuis. This was really fine dining in a superb surrounding, het Pomphuis kept his authentic glamour of his previous life. The food and service was perfect.

The food here is excellent, the presentation masterful and beautiful, the wine list, interesting, and the pigeon I had was to die for. The only sour note was one of our pet peeves: practically no on in the restaurant when we arrived, but our party was seated on a raised platform where the floor buckled beneath anyone’s feet as multiple...

The restaurant is located smack in the middle of the port area in a renovated pump building. Beyond a doubt it's one of the most atmospheric places I've ever had dinner (especially downstairs where the old machinery is visible). I was invited for a business dinner and didn't pick the restaurant myself. Contrary to what some other reviewers mention, the... More

Interior: great! In the middle of the harbor, great building. Food: super! Service: not in the same category as the food. In this price-range, I expect a friendly face, and not the basic service where someone places my food in front of me, with barely no explanation. Maybe we just had a bad waiter, but a little smile never killed... More

The restaurant is an old pump house and the pumps are still in the building, The menu is very interesting and varied and the food excellent. The staff is simply wonderful, in line with the class of the restaurant. Saying something about what we eat, we enjoined fish and cheese (unbelievable!!!). At the end I got the address of one...

Beautifull building, good service (even when you're in a hurry) and of course great food! It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

The restaurant is an old pump house and the pumps are still in the building, very tasteful inside, lovely to dine outside. The menu is varied and the food excellent, though very expensive. Good for a special occasion but not everyday dining. The staff are very attentive and the food is presented in a very appetising way. A very enjoyable... More
