“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The menu is small but the dishes perfect! It is not often that I am this impressed with a dish at a restaurant but to have everything I tasted make me say wow is a first. Which is why I thought I would write my first review ever for a restaurant.
Thank you for a very memorable night La Fleur. Sorry for eating the chocolate decoration on the desert plate. Not sure I was supposed to do that as it must have taken ages! Oops :-/

“Food is ok to good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

This is good solid dining, nothing fancy, but nothing that you are going to say ... why did I come here? We found something on the menu for everyone - 3 kids and 4 adults.

“Decent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is a place that has more candles than the Vatican. Service was average. 4 Cheese Pizza was good.

“Gastronomic Delights...........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We found La Fleur purely by chance........ An Autumn evening, it was still comfortable to sit on the terrace. The menu read as a challenge for any great Chef. The decor also made me slightly dubious as to the restaurant's 'philosophy'..... Were they trying their luck here in this commercial corner of the Netherlands......???? All was soon revealed, and from start to finish the food and service were of the highest standard. I ate a Classic lobster thermidor, the wines were super, and the atmosphere is such that one can forget time. Very enjoyable, relaxing and friendly. Chef Pierre Schmetz has a varied and colourful background and ranks, in my opinion, alongside the Classic Cuisine greats.

“Fantastique Gasterije "La Fleur"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I was with two other people that came away with the same opinion. The prawn cocktail was like nothing I have had in the past. The garnish was a wedge of melon with a beautiful rose and sprig of another flower. The whiskey cream cocktail sauce and prawns with cream on top were excellent. My companions had an excellent lobster Thermidor as a main and I had duck stuffed with plums and peanuts with a beautiful rich sauce. The lobster had a rich herb sauce to complement the traditional Thermidor. All mains had a parcel of vegetables and lovely fondant potatoes. The presentation was excellent of all the courses. Two of us had a superb rose parfait while a real piece of art arrived at the table that was the chocolate mousse. The mousse had many different textures to it and was not the ordinary experience you have elsewhere. Great personal service. I strongly recommend this to anyone visiting from Paris. This is great food that could teach other chefs that presentation is as important as great taste and quality produce.
