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

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
