Have been to this restaurant for both lunch + dinner about 8 times in the past year, so could surely state that we are fans. We have visited with friends, family as well as a couple and we can say it's suitable for all age groups as well as target groups (we also noticed many business diners as well as... More

Relaxed informal atmosphere in a lovely quirky setting. The staff were unfailingly helpful especially with our vegan companion. The food is local or from their own gardens using seasonal ingredients. Very atmospheric at night.

They use their own garden produce and the food is cooked beautiful. They have glutton free and lactose free menus as well. They catered amazingly for my daughter who is vegan and... More

Popular, noisy, open-plan, not relaxing, quirky but over-priced food. They make much of the garden produce but that doesn't make up for the poor service. You'll have to hunt down a server when busy.

Villa Augustus is definitely worthwhile considering when visiting Dordrecht. The food is excellent and the produce that is being served is grown in the gardens on the premises. As the building is part of the complex of the old watertower, the architecture is really special. The restaurant itself is quite big and when it's busy it can be a bit... More

I've been to Villa Augustus several times and have always enjoyed it. The interior is kind of retro which makes it interesting. The restaurant is quite large though, so it is not very intimate. The service is friendly and on a sunny day, it is great to sit out in the garden where they grow their own fruits and vegetables.... More

On our day trip to Dordrecht we decided to have a high tea at Villa Augustus. We made reservations up front (which is highly recommended) and weren't disappointed! Three plates filled with delicious bread with toppings (salmon, tomato tapenade, cheese) and various cakes and pies (lemon, chocolate, scone). Lots of different teas to choose from and of which you receive... More

Looking for a great place to have new year brunch with two teens who had gone out into the end-of-the-year-parties till early morning, we drove from Antwerp up to Dordrechts Villa Augustus. Top decision: this is a very open, relaxing and very joyful place, near the water in an old kind of industrial area. Good service, good quality, fresh food,... More

This great restaurant is the result of an incredibly daring project: the restoration of the old Water Tower and surrounding pumping houses into a hotel and a restaurant respectively, while converting the rest of the compound into a garden providing fresh produce. The scale of the project could have been a disaster, but here they hit it spot-on. The restaurant... More
