Whenever back in Soest we invariably stop here at least once. A wonderful starting point for a hike through a very attractive area consisting of forest and sanddunes. It is a cosy restaurant with an open fireplace in winter. Dogs are welcome! At lunchtime there is a choice from various small typical Dutch dishes but a full meal is also... More

We had a lovely lunch here. The dishes were fresh and tasty, if not plentiful in some cases. The staff were friendly and attentive to our children's needs as well as ours.

I remembered this Restaurant from years ago, so when I took my partner to see the Dunes (a hidden gem in the middle of the country), we deliberately drove the extra mile to find it. Parking is opposite the Restaurant on the other side of the road, don't be fooled by the barriers, it is visitor friendly, no payment is... More

Enjoyed a wonderful meal at this restaurant, the salmon entree was perfect being smoked on the premises. The beef cooked to perfection and the wine recommendations excellent. The decor was warm and inviting on a cold damp evening. The staff were very attentive and charming. My husband us still eulogising about the Dover Sole. Most definitely the best meal we... More

This restaurant is a perfect base for wandering, cycling. In the middel of forest and dunes. A cosy ambiance with the most friendly service staff ever met. The menu is tastefully presented. We could take all the time we want. The wine arrangement was also well chosen. A perfect match between quality and price with a friendly service staff as... More

A stone's throw away from Utrecht, the Soester Duinen was a lovely escape from city-life and its proximity to the city make it a no-brainer when looking for a day-trip into the forest/dunes.

We went here for a X-mas brunch in december 2013. The brunch buffet was okay but not more than average. We expected more for this price, almost 30 euro's per person. At a X-mas brunch the orange juice and at least the coffee/tea should be included which they were not. Must say, the scrambled eggs with salmon was absolutely delicious!... More

The sand dunes of Soest are huge. Be sure to leaf the entrance soon, because it can be crowded. Especially people with kids and dogs will be seen. Bit if you walk for 10 minutes you'll see less people and can enjoy this very special nature. There's sand all over the place, but the sea is over 100 kms away!

This restaurant, only 10 minutes walking distance from the Hilton Hotel Soesterduinen, serves excellent food and provides very good service. The restaurant is very spacious but nevertheless has a warm atmosphere. The staff gave us all the time we wanted between the courses and are very friendly. Very good value for money.
