Good well cooked steaks with a variety of cuts and generous portions. Sides are tasty. Good place for families. My two kids loved the ribs. Nice bottle of Shiraz to go with it. Good value and friendly, efficient service. Would reccommend.

Had a nice and simple diner with friends at the Tamboer. I had the 300gr steak Tamboer, which was prepared as you would expect. Enjoyed the diner and atmosphere.

On the 1940 Square. We went for the 3-course menu at 34.50 Eur. Excellent quality, beautifully presented and served. Mixed clientele. The carte was longer and more expensive. English translation available A seat in the window lets you see Middelburg pass by

Located near the city center. Not the most trendy place but good service, value for money (especially if you take the 3-course meal). The steak I got was exactly how I wanted it to be.

As well as its full menu, De Tamboer does a good 3-course deal which is very good value and gives a choice of starter, main and dessert that should include something to suit most diners. Nothing fancy, but good from start to finish. The staff were very helpful too, including the chef himself!

Really enjoyed my steak in "De Tamboer". Staff friendly (and spoke English). Despite being quite busy I didn't have to wait for an unacceptable period of my time for my meal. Would definitely recommend.

The best steak I have ever had, and very reasonably priced. Relaxed unpretentious atmosphere. The only reason I don't give 5stars is because the salad was a joke - far too small (while I got far too much fries, maybe thats a dutch thing)

I finally has some real beef that compares to what is the norm in the US. The beef tenderloin was an excellent choise and is made very simply but with a good taste. It was cut a bit thin so order it rarer than you normally would. The ambience was very quiet and the restaurant is far enough from the... More
