Hit Salentein for a business lunch on a weekday. Little chilly but we sat outside because it was such a nice area. Great beer and wine and service was attentive without being intrusive. I went with the mushroom salad with blue cheese. Great meal, walnut...addition was nice but I didn’t care for the cheese.More

Salentijn estate and Salentijn Bodega are worth a visit. They serve great meat dishes (from their own livestock) and serve a splendid collection of Salentijn wines from the wineyards in Valle de Uco in Argentina. Especially the Malbec Barrel Selection is one of my favorites....Price level is a bit on the high side, but this place is an absolute must if you're in the area.More

Nice place and terrace, great set-up, very good meats. Poor service, slow and rude, maybe tired at the end of their morning shift.

Our first visit here and this is a very special place. Nice drinks at the fireplace before dinner. The staff were superb, young but totally dedicated and enthousiatic. When she leaned this was our first visit she was excited about telling us about the history....We opted for the 4 course menu with accompanying wines and it was superb from start to finish. The location is very comfortable but the main quality were then three staff who in total flexibility looked after us. They interacted superbly with each other and had time for every individual guest. We will certainly return!More

They serve great meatdishes (meat is from their own livestock). They have an own Argentinian based wine brand with great white and red wines (also for sale at the reception). Great for business meetings/dinners.

Everything about this place is great. The food, the staff, the atmosphere, the surrounding environment. Any question you'll have about the food or drinks will be answered by the knowledgeable staff. As an after dinner drink Grappa was proposed but I never had that before....So instead of (boldly) recommending anything I got to taste 7 (seven !) different Grappa to make my own choice ! Highly recommended restaurant !More

We had dinner here on a beautiful summer evening. As expected the wines were very good. The food somewhat mediocre and not always matching the quality of the wines. But we were mostly annoyed by the several flies in the restaurant, many were stuck on...the ceiling, one death fly fell on our table. We had a good laugh about it but I does not suit the restaurant.More

Don't hesitate to book a table at the Grill or at the other restaurant on the other side, De Salentein is the best place in Nijlerk and for sure one of the best place in the Netherlands. Service is very good and you can ask...them to be serve quickly if you don't want to have the Dutch service which mean 1 hour between each meal. Food is above the average in the Netherlands and you will have one of your best lunch or diner there. Difficulty will be to find something comparable during your stay in Holland. You should also test their meat and wine, it's their own production from Argentina.More

On base of our last great experience we visited the bistro of the Salentein again but now it was a disappointment. It took too long we were being served. We ordered a good bottle of wine and a carafe water from the tap (like last...time) but this time another waitress told us that it was strictly forbidden to serve (free) water from the tap. We had to ask for bread which came too late. The worst of all was the smoke from the open kitchen where steaks were to baking. The waitress had to open the outside door close to us to get rid of the smoke and of course the cold came in. The food was really OK but till today our cloches are smelling of those steaks!! Last time it was great, this time it was the opposite. We don't know if there will be a third time.More

We had a superb dinner at Salentein Bistro: cosy atmosphere, nice table, very friendly waitress, constructive chat with the chef who is working in the open kitchen in the center of the bistro. The entrecote was excellent and big. Together with a bottle of Salentein...Malbec dinner at this bistro was a real experience.More
