We visited this restaurant but it was at Madridstraat 9-11. We were in a hurry but the chef managed to knock out some inventive veggie meals of lentils, sweet potato and goats cheese. Not cheap but good quality. I'd like to go back with more...More

Belle de Jour is definitely a restaurant I can recommend. We went out for dinner with another couple. Had a very nice evening. I had a vegetarian main dish: wild mushrooms with a green salsa and quinoa. Very yummy. The other ones liked their dishes...More

Hidden on the corner behind the Cultural Centre 'De Grote Post', you will find this trendy little restaurant. Do not expect a luxury interior, it is low vintage. But the most important is what ends up your plate. And that is more than good. A...More
