Service was impeccable, and the food lovely. We had the 6 course tasting menu with matching wines. Truly a great value for money (80€ for the food alone). The cheese course is not to be missed! The sommelier was outstanding. He offered several more challenging wines at the beginning, but all paired perfectly with each course. Was it all worthy... More

In this fanbtastic restaurant comes everything together, very nice food, well prepaired and served, nice and quiet admosphere with attention to you as a guest. The restaurant has a michelin star for the last 15 years, which must be a complement. The restaurant also has a hotel now that makes it more simpel to go there if you dont live... More

Always a great experience (food, service and ambience) at Merlet. Food is elegant, yet straightforward. The sommelier does a great job in selection of excellent wines to combine. Highly recommend.

We had a 5 course diner at the Merlet Restaurant located directly beneath our room. It has been awarded a Michelin Star, and lived up to every expectation. Service, food presentation and quality where excellent!

We went for dinner during "de heerlijk 10 daagse" and it was awsome.The hospitality is absolutely great , but not overdone. We had 4 course meal with wine arrangement , and it is all u may expect from a michelinstar restaurant.We absolutely come back in the future.

Love this place. I came here at yearly. Expensive but worth it. Normally i am going for the tasting menu accompanied with wines. What i like about this place is that it is not to formal and the food is not too experimental. Highly recommended.

This is a Michelin star restaurant, so the only question is, will it meet your deservedly high expectations or be "just good". For me, Merlet is borderline. The food was exquisite. But it wasn't quite the ultimate experience. Well, when you're playing in this league, everything has to be right, and even when it is, it's still not enough. So,... More

While staying in Schoorl, my family and I went here for a treat having heard rave reviews about the Merlet's dining experience ... and it didn't disappoint! This a Michelin Starred experience so it is not cheap but you certainly get what you pay for. Upon arrival we were given three starter courses of finely assembled plates, all delicately flavoured...
