Nice place for a walk or hike

The sand dunes of Soest are huge. Be sure to leaf the entrance soon, because it can be crowded. Especially people with kids and dogs will be seen. Bit if you walk for 10 minutes you'll see less people and can enjoy this very special nature. There's sand all over the place, but the sea is over 100... read more

A stone's throw away from Utrecht, the Soester Duinen was a lovely escape from city-life and its proximity to the city make it a no-brainer when looking for a day-trip into the forest/dunes.

We went here for a X-mas brunch in december 2013. The brunch buffet was okay but not more than average. We expected more for this price, almost 30 euro's per person. At a X-mas brunch the orange juice and at least the coffee/tea should be included which they were not. Must say, the scrambled eggs with salmon was absolutely delicious!... More

This restaurant, only 10 minutes walking distance from the Hilton Hotel Soesterduinen, serves excellent food and provides very good service. The restaurant is very spacious but nevertheless has a warm atmosphere. The staff gave us all the time we wanted between the courses and are very friendly. Very good value for money.

We were traveling through Holland and we found this restaurant. What a great surprise! Great service from the time we entered. When the appetizer arrived we knew we were in for a great meal. I was sorry that I didn't take the Chef's tasting menu, I'm sure it would have been excellent. Everything was delicious from beginning to end. Don't... More

Absolutely excellent, organic food. 4-course menu is great, even the veggie variant (on request). Attentive staff even under pressure, friendly (e.g. free tap water next to drinks ordered). Yummie! Reservation advised for Fri and Sat evening

My husband and I ate here last night. They were offering 4 courses for the price of 2 (a Saturday special I assume) so we ordered that. This was 26.95 euros per person. The menu was vitello tonato followed by lobster and celery soup followed by either duck leg or a fish option followed by raspberry creme brulee. The vitello... More

This is essentially a meeting centre with a restaurant that caters for groups. Don't go there as an individual guest. You are lucky if staff have time for you. They are either preparing for groups to come, are serving groups, or talking to each other probably waiting for groups. The food is average; not bad, but nothing special. Our dishes... More
