We went for my 40th birthday to have lunch there. We were welcomed immediately at the door and someone helped us with our coats. We were guided to our table (with seaview). We sat there for about 10 or 15 minutes without anybody coming to our table. So my husband asked one of the waiters to already have a glas... More

Everytime we visit Belgium, we reserve our table at Bartholomeus. We have never been disappointed. Bart's continuous creativity and drive for perfection is just incredible. Together with Sandra they form the most wonderful couple ever seen in the world of gastronomy. They deserve two Michelin stars !

The restaurant has a 5-6 courses menu, but also on weekdays a 3 course lunch menu. We had the lunch menu today, in summary: a first course based on mussels, a main dish with pigeon , and a desert with fruits, ice cream etc. All very nicely presented, and even more importantly: very interesting combinations of ingredients and tastes.

We have had the pleasure and privilege of having meals in various "Starred" restaurants in the world and still, this is special. Obviously, the chef only uses fresh ingredients and most of them are from the nearby North Sea. Also the preparations are fabulous and surprising with often mixes of herbs and fish that just tickle the palate no end.... More

It is not because I live in the area, but this is excellent. Friendliness, service and most important food. A lot of people I invited there still talk about it. Visited with friends, family and for business

Very good restaurant In Heist, on the beach. In Bartholomew is all about balance. The portions are measured, weighed the ingredients, the compositions seamlessly, the prices sharply calculated.

Sublime! It is really the only word to describe the experience. We took the Bartholomeus menu and were absolutely delighted from the champagne apero through the starters, fish and main courses to the dessert. Each course had a really great taste and was beautifully presented and the "adapted" wines complemented each course perfectly. We have read previous reviews of star... More

Been here 4 times and it was always a great experience. Warm welcome, comfortable seats, delicious food. Every course is a pleasure to look at but even a better pleasure to taste. The service is excellent and very friendly and relaxed.
