This is a well run restaurant where all pieces of the puzzle fit. Good food from excellent fresh ingredients. Good, friendly professional attentive service and best of all a very honest price/quality ratio

Every bite is an explosion of subtle flavours. Every sip of the accompanying wines a tru delight. 2 Michelin stars, but not too uptight.

It's the second time that I visit it and I can say it's the best restaurant I've been. 2 Michelin stars, 18/20 on Gault Millau and it's true. For me even worth 3 stars. If you take the five course menu, you will have more than enough and you don't have to lie down afterwards when you have eaten too... More

Super food, excellent service, nice view and a unbelievable wine list. Fortunately the sommelier is also one of a kind. One minor point rather expensive, but normal in this category of restaurants. Simply the best in Knokke.

Our party of four partook in the prix fixe lunch which we enjoyed over a leisurely three hours. It was without question the best lunch (perhaps any meal) I have ever had. The room was elegant, the staff friendly and very professional. I recommend it highly if you are in Knokke.

If you have ever wondered what is the difference between a one Michelin star restaurant and a two Michelin star restaurant, wonder no more. Bartholomeus clearly demonstrates the difference. The warm interior is welcoming while sufficiently minimal to place all focus on the food. The magnificent plating is on beautiful artisan porcelain, each piece perfectly complementing the course presented. The... More
