Amazing little gem..slightly off the main square. Somewhere to go when you want to feel like that traveller that's found something special. Wonderful food, and awesome service..and just for a little while..felt like a local! Will definitely revisit..again and again.

I really hesitate to let the world know about our favourite restaurant as it is already hard to get in. For a start it is very small (and I think the owner is very happy to leave it that way so he can give a truly personalised service. Last time we wanted to go (just two little people), it was...

If you like fresh, tasty ingredients, prepared in an excellent way, with a very friendly service, in a small restaurant with enough space between the tables to guarantee privacy, this is the place to go. In Summer, they also have a couple of tables outside, giving on the cobble stone alley just off grote markt. Do make reservations for Friday-... More

Wat meer over Freek.
Freek is in de eerste plaats natuurlijk de naam van de chef van dit kleine gezellige restaurantje. Freek heeft er al een lange carriere opzitten aan het fornuis van een aantal grote restaurants.

Maar nu doet hij het eindelijk zelf!
Regelmatig bijgestaan door zijn echtgenote Elke en met steeds een guitige blik van op een van de prachtige foto's van zijn dochter Charlotte verwelkomt hij jullie vanuit zijn keuken met steeds wisselende eigen creaties.

Dagelijks gaat hij 's morgens vroeg zijn inkopen doen en tovert hij 's middags en 's avonds heerlijke gerechten van eerlijke dagverse producten op je bord.

Trouw aan zijn eigen jonge maar ook klassieke stijl met oosterse en mediterrane invloeden maakt hij steeds opnieuw de lekkernijen vanop het menu, aangevuld met nieuwe en oude klassiekers die je op het krijtbord in het restaurant vindt.

Bij Freek! Kom je niet alleen omdat het er gezellig en warm is, omdat er steeds een zeer welkome sfeer heerst of omdat je nieuwsgierig het kleine binnenkoertje opwandelt in het gezellige straatje wat de Guldenhoofdstraat is...

Je komt er terug omdat je er steeds opnieuw geniet van de verse en de lekkere gerechten die Freek je opnieuw en opnieuw voorschotelt!

En wanneer je dan binnenkomt, en je oog valt op het homarium, dan weet je dat ook de kreeftenliefhebber op het juiste adres is aangekomen.

Beste klanten, wees meer dan zeer welkom, en nu al tot weerziens!

Freek, Elke en Charlotte
