We recently dined at Bartholomeus at the suggestion of a Belgium lawyer friend on a Monday evening in mdi May. Everything from the greeting at the door, the table, the setting near the beach to most importantly the food was top notch. Hard to find a good restaurant open on Mondays it seems and this one was beyond our expectations.... More

I totally agree with Britto R, this is one of the best restaurants in Europe. We go there 2 tot 3 times a year and we have never been disappointed. Very friendly service and yes Bart's creativity surprises us again and again, every time we think this can not be better but his drive to perfection is just incredible. Having... More

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
