“Nice location and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I have been to the Zijlstroom many times for lunch - never for dinner. They have a good variety of food in my opinion, always fresh. In the summertime, I love their terrace, but sitting inside in the patio in autumn and winter is great too. Always a pleasure to go to this place.

“erratic service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2011

Been to this place three times. Only once were we satisfied, the other two times, the service was awkward; greasy haired waiter kneeling down at our table and having an 'informal chat' or service so slow I had to ask for our food 5 times. We had no apologies on the delays and in fact my wife was told it was our fault.... (should we have been helping in the kitchen??)

This place used to be really good but since it's changed management the food has become average and the service and atmosphere have gone down.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2008

I had a perfect dinner here, sitting on the terrace watching the setting sun. We ordered their 3-course Surprise menu with wine arrangement and I would take this gamble any time again.
All ingredients are fresh and (mostly) organic, some even from own garden or green house.
The food was great, the service very friendly and staff were knowledgeable about the food and wine they served.

“Unfortunately, this restaurant changed ownership. After that management was better, but the charm and quality of food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2008

Restaurant features a varied menu often using local/regional ingredients. The food is very good, especially when you order the surprise menu, as it always features fresh ingredients. If/when the maître is serving, you will usually get a great story about the food and the wine.
The other serving personel seems a bit inexperienced, but all in all the food is very good.
