Can't comment on the general dining hall experience as we had a group room for ourselves. Fabulous 3-course dinner, nicely decorated plates, and good options for veggies too. Helpful waiters/waitresses responding quickly to all requests; okay, at end one forgot to bring a 2nd drink but that is nitpicking. Strongly recommended, bistro prices in a setting-straight-from-a-movie near the river and... More

We had dinner in this cosy restaurant with a warm atmosphere. Food was okay although the vegetables were not well cooked. Remarks were unfortunally not taken seriously. Lady staff (although the gentleman was friendly) was not so nice. Would not go again.

We came here as we were staying at the Lodgment Swaenenwecht across the street and Belle was recommended. There is an outdoor patio and it was popular for drinks in the afternoon. We came for dinner and the restaurant was pretty crowded with locals including children and they have a nice kid play area. The food was very good and... More

A delicious place. We enjoyed it a lot. As a family with children, we managed to find a variety which would fit all members. Recommended place.

The location is good and the Bistro is a nice place to go to . But I was disappointed in the food I got . Bistro food in Belgium and France is at a higher level , the Dutch need to work on this .

A really lovely location next to the canal in an area of great antiquity. Came across this place while walking from Maassen to Utrecht. The staff are really friendly, and the celery soup we had was excellent. The local bread served (normal and gluten free) was really tasty. Inside very nice, but outside great to catch some spring sunshine. After... More

Beautiful location (a bit far from center) but in a nice scenic part of town (near the river). Carpaccio was really good and beefsteak was excellent. Can be recommended

Unbelievably disappointed. It's such a nice location and a few staff are trying hard. Other staff and the kitchen are ruining this restaurant completely. My meat was inedible. I'm a carnivore and did not even finish my first bite. Staff response: "Oh? Well I guess this is not your style then." Seriously? Then - in our €30 menu deal. We... More

I came here on business having stayed at the wonderful Logement Swaenenvecht next door. I so wish that it had been open on the Monday as well because I was spoilt for choice with the menu which was very reasonable at €30 for 3 courses. The food that I selected: Ricotta Wontons (I know...I pondered, I chose but had no... More
