Located in rural Montfoort, restaurant 'de Schans' is a hidden gem! The ambiance is modern, relaxed and cosy all at once. The menu offers a diversity of tastefull dishes but do order the surprise menu and let yourself be spoiled by a true masterchef. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 course meal.

Excellent food, good service and a reasonably priced fixed menu. You will find De Schans between Montfoort and Oudewater in the "Green Heart" of the Netherlands.

We were with a group of nine and sat in the "gardenroom". From the start we were surprised with delicously subtile dishes accompanied by some lovely wines.

A well balanced experience. Food was not common. They really do their best to show that cooking is more then preparing food. Pleasant atmosphere. We will definitely return.

This was a lucky find, great wine menu, excellent food - very good standard of service - not stuffy or cold. I really liked it. Took the five course surprise and was delighted at the presented quality and taste of the food. Well worth a visit.

A good host knows when you want his attention and when you want him to stay in the background. The host in this restaurant does not.

The food actually wasn't bad.
