One of the best

Without any doubt one of the best restaurants at the north sea coast. Sharp priced menus. Very friendly staff, makes everyone feel at ease.

I already knew that this place was going to be the absolute top. But it was more than that. Apart from being a master in tasteful dishes, the Chef has a lot of humour (an element you seldom meet in restaurants), stylishly hidden in baffling surpises and funny extra's. Go for his best menu (Terre et mer) and there are... More

A diner at Bartholomeus is a total wow experience! The location is perfect, especially when you have a table with sea view. The hostess and other personnel are ever so friendly and very professional. And then the dishes: a true delight for the eye and tastebuds! Definitely worth the 2 Michelin stars!

True culinary art, service difficult to beat. This is the first time I use the saying: "one of the best restaurants I have ever visited" Not cheap but worth every cent.

It was our first visit to Bartholomeus. My sister & I, whilst visiting Knokke from Scotland, went for lunch with our friend on Saturday. All 3 of us are so glad we did. From the minute you enter the mood is set by the friendly & professional staff. This warm ambience is complimented by the beautiful sea views in an... More

When rating a restaurant with 5 stars, Tripadvisor asks me if this is one of the best meals I've ever had. Well, on this one I had to say "YES". In this 2* Michelin restaurant you still get real dishes composed with the best ingredients available. Meaning: your dish is not stuffed with 50 ingredients (& eatable flowers) that do... More

The quality was as can be expected in a 2* restaurant, consistently high, but nothing really stood out. We were pleasantly surprised that the 86 Euro for a 5 course menu even included a glass of Champagne. The waiting time between the first and the second course was way too long, but this was compensated by the friendliness of the... More

If ever a restaurant is worth of the two Michelin stars it has received, it is certainly Bartholomeus in Knokke -Heist (Belgium, North Sea coast) We have known chef Bart Desmidt since he was a little boy and came horseback riding. We often sat at the bar of the riding stables with his dad. So when, years later, Bart decided... More
