“Exceeds 1 Michelin star quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

In a very cosy building de Kromme Dissel serves very fine food of exceptional quality, great taste and paired with extraordinary wines (all of them very original choices and the sommelier is very knowledgable about them).

I have dined here a few times (must go more often but distance will prevent this) and enjoyed it very much at all occaisions, as did my companions.

In my opinion de Kromme Dissel exceeds 1 Michelin star quality. The restuarant had a Michelin star for 42 years. There is no restaurant (in The Netherlands) that had a star for such a long period without interruption. I think that speaks for itself.

“40 Years of Michelin star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

When a restaurant keeps it's Michelin star for over 40 years there must be a good reason. And there is one: located in a replica of a Saxonian farm, unfortunately tucked away between the buildings of the Bilderberg Hotel Klein Zwitserland, there are about ten tables. In summer there is additional outside seating in a secluded garden area. Once elegantly seated the chef proposes the possibilities of a 3 to 7 course menu and takes notice of the preferences of his guests. The sommelier likewise leaves the choice of wines or proposes matching ones.The cooking is subtile and the mixing of tastes remarkable. We had a pleasant talk with the sommelier and being wine addicts this was an enlightening chat about common experiences. During the whole meal there was not a single flaw and this is a place where the distance to our home (2 hrs driving) is no objection to coming back.
BUT ! Reserve well in advance specially on friday and saturday evenings .Remember: there are only some ten tables available and the locals know it. The restaurant is closed sunday and monday.

“40 years of overall quality and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2011

A culinary experience, with fine wines in a great atmosphere. Sadly we come here hardly as often as we would like. The total package always is excellent. But to wear a Michelin star for more than 40 years, you simply need to be a very good restaurant. That is exactly what De Kromme Dissel is. And if you - after a wonderful night out - no longer want to drive home, do not hesitate to spend the night in the pleasant Bilderberg Hotel. Which is located just beside the restaurant.
