Last Sunday, on the occasion of my birthday, my wife and I had invited three other couples for lunch at the Bartholomeus. We opted for the unparalleled menu "Terre et Mer". All courses were superb, but the one that really stood out was the "Wagyu tartare Gillardeau". We took for the sake of convenience the accompanying wines, which were OK,... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Bartholomeus very much. The menu was interesting and creative, very tasty and looked pretty. The only thing I'd do differently the next time is not to go with the wine-pairing.

Dining at Bartholomeus is always a privilege and a real feast! Also yesterday we had the pleasure of dining the Bartholomeus menu. At Bartholomeus the complementary wines are a true added value to the menu so I can fully recommend to take the wines the sommelier proposes, which I can't advise to do so - in general - at other...

What the chef does with food is magic, fresh and local as seasonal products. His wife who earned the title as best hostess is absolutely right, she brings the guest in a perfect atmosphere were one can enjoye a fabulous experience of haute cuisine.

It's the second time that I visit it and I can say it's the best restaurant I've been. 2 Michelin stars, 18/20 on Gault Millau and it's true. For me even worth 3 stars. If you take the five course menu, you will have more than enough and you don't have to lie down afterwards when you have eaten too... More
