High quality European dining

While staying at De Watermolen I was taken out, so to speak, to dine in the stylish Restaurant. (There is a good Bistro serving a similar menu too).

We dined first in the formal restaurant, where everything was done exactly "comme il faut", with 5 star service. The lobster bisque was particularly good, served with the cognac and cream added at the table. Meat dishes seemed cooked to perfection, and I simply cannot understand the previous reviewer's comments. Because the service is so formal, some might find it... More

Sorry but I really did not enjoy my dinner here. First, they refuse to give tap water - and I refuse to drink bottled water for environmental reasons. I consider it very cheap from a restaurant not to give tap water if I ask, especially when they charge close to EUR 40 for a main course - why do they... More

Great menu...I was able to enjoy a meal of 7 different plates including tartare, onion soup, cod fish, pheasant, and 3 different dessert servings. Personnel is very corteous and location facilities are nicely decorated.

Dining at the Watermolen is always such an amazing experience! Both the Bistro and the Restaurant are great... The staff always gives such a friendly and professional service, and the menus are mouthwatering. The location is also just perfect! Last August we went to The Watermolen twice: One time with our kids and family, in the Bistro and the staff... More

We visited this hotel/restaurant for the second time, this time with a group of 8 friends. The 5 course dinner was excellent. Original dishes, fresh ingredients, "design on the plate", tasteful combinations. The matching wines were a perfect fit, and richly poured -as it should-. Add to this the nice and quiet environment, and above all: the professional and ever-present... More

Such an amazing restaurant. We were invited for a business dinner.the place got packed quickly. The welcome is great. We had some champagne and crudités. They offered a mini soup with amazing crouton in a coffee cup and a raw fish with pumpkin and delicious sauce next to it. Then we were served our meal on a big round table... More

This was a spectacularly good restaurant. We ate here one night and at a neabye Michelin One star the next. De Matermoeln's dinner most certainly was on a par with the other place. We had fois gras, delicious lobster, bisque and pork. All exceptionally well prepared and presented with creativity. Delightfully fresh and striking flavor combinations. An expensive, but very...
