I love this place the food is tasty the atmosphere is great and the service excellent. I have nothing to evaluate negatively even the sun was shining, I will definitely be back. I recommend it to everybody who want to try good Dutch seafood cuisine..., even if there is no lack of alternatives . Bravi tutti 🙏More

The general setting next to the water is very nice and the people working over there are really trying to do the best. And although the menu card looks interesting it’s the typical Dutch way of trying to make things look classy with truffles and...tartare..More

Situated in the oldy-worldly town of Baarn, this restaurant sits on the banks of the river Eem, gorgeous. The menu has something for everyone, from tasty fish dishes to a huge meaty hamburger. Also great starters and desserts. The waiters are very cute, handsome and...very, very pleasant.More

Due to covid-19 the restaurant is closed, but they have created a wonderful takeaway Christmas dinner. Beautifully arranged mixed starters, tasty shiitake soup, nice meat, fish, or veggie main course and a real (albeit cardboard) "étagère" with sweets. We sincerely hope that Eemlust will survive covid...and be back in business in Spring or Summer. Take care!More

Great lunch for reasonable prices. Not super suffisiticated choices but many great ones. Was difficult to choose but I ended up taking philly steak sandwich. Bread was super fresh. Will come back soon when in the area and during summer where you can sit at...the water side.More

The restaurant is a nice place and it has a nice terrace on the lake. Unfortunately to have a dinner we wait too much. The bufala-mozzarella was not bufala, I don't know why people lies about that. It tasted like a normal mozzarella that you...can find in a supermarket. The truffle-risotto was nice, but it should be cooked with a bit of white wine to add more Italian flavor. The dessert was just a little pice of lemon ice-cream with strawberries, too simple. A little bit of creativity will be appreciate.More

Good quality food, nice staff, beautiful terrace with view on the river. When you ever feel its time for a party, 'Eemlust' has a partyboat with catering for an unforgettable afternoon on the water.

We know this restaurant very well and have been there ample times in the past years. It is always good and the staff is super friendly! Their ‘daily 4-course menu’ (in small portions with accompanying wines) is always our choice and never fails! And if...we pass by for just a drink on the terrace, it’s just a pleasure to sit along the river and enjoy the view. And the wine 🙂. Can only recommend it.More

My son-in-law suggested we eat here. (I'm the visiting American whose daughter married a Dutchman.) The food was good, it had places for the children,and the atmosphere by the Eem River was relaxing. Writing this review three weeks afterwards, I admit I forget what specific...items were on the menu or what I ordered, but no one had any complains, and everyone commented on the ambiance. I could hang out here as well, if I were a local.More

It's a nice place to be and the food is very good for a good price. Nice people in the kitchen and in the restaurant. Aren't you a big eater, don't worry you can order half of the original parts on the menu.

My family and I stopped here on our way back east from the airport. Located a minute from the busy A1 this is a wonderful spot. The building is old and stylish, wonderfully kept up. The location - overlooking the water - is great too....Staff was very friendly. I had the “12 uurtje” (tomato soup, and bread with croquette, egg, and cheese). Really good and affordable.More

It was a pleasure dining at Eemlust. The food was well prepared, we did not had to wait very long even as it seemed to be busy. The menu has lots of variety and some surprising combinations. There is a good atmosphere en the facilities...were nice and clean. All employees were friendly but we sometimes did missed the sparkle of enjoying working in the hospitality. Maybe I'm to picky, but it is just an even better experience if the service staff are really passioned and don't just drop off the food and on to the next. But that's only it so overall I really would recommend the restaurant for a nice night out.More
