We really enjoyed the location. We sat on the 2nd floor, which I would recommend, overlooking downstairs. The service was lovely. Unfortunately, the food was a bit bland. For the prices you pay, I felt it wasn't as fair.

Reasonably small restaurant with personal touches through the night. In between meals. We kept getting little surprises the chef had prepared for us. We did not ask or get charged for this, just because they were nice. Service was very good, I certainly recommend going here.

This restaurant had a good ambience, and on cold February night a lovely log fire to add to the atmosphere. The service was very good and the food not far off being Michelin star quality. It was only let down by a terreine we had ordered still having plastic wrapped round it to hold it in shape which could have... More

Coming from expensive Amsterdam this a real treat for a more than reasonable price. Everything was perfectly cooked and all fresh and wonderful produce. Lovely wine list for good prices. Will definitively come back!

We were there for dinner during Zwolle's heat wave last summer, and as a result were the only diners that evening. The dinner was fabulous, probably the best meal we had on our trip. And the service was friendly and excellent. Wonderful!

Great restaurant, chique but not too chique. Nice staff, good food (mostly regional, if possible). Culinary delight to eat there. I love to celebrate special occasions there. You easily spend the whole night there eating, so not suitable for kids...

TA already had a good rating for 't Pestengasthuys, but we were amazed at how good the food was. This was on par with a one star Michelin restaurant. We had a tasting menu with the wine pairing. From the bread through desert, everything was fabulous. Service was excellent. The atmosphere was nice. Assuming you can't get a table at... More

we ate there during Christmas holidays and we all together agreed on one: this was for sure one of the best foods we ever had. Perfect service, nice designed and presentation and most importantly very delicious! Just notice that the place is not the cheapest :)
