“A bit of a drive but worth it - lounge, lunch, dine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

Om the beautiful river Vegt this place is the best for a lazy lunch. A great wine list, the menu is imaginative, new and the food that lands on your table well prepared. Very young staff, they might want to be a bit more attentive but very pleasant and welcoming indeed. No doubt great for dinner too, but please make the drive on a sunny day and take your time... Be spoiled!

“Great location, great food, service to be improved”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

We had dinner at Slangevegt with a party of four. The restaurant breaths a cosy atmosphere and we were guided to the back of the restaurant where we were seated at the window overlooking the terrace and Vecht river. After having an aperitif (we were not offered any hors d'ouvres) we had a starter - I myself had lobster bisque which was served with a scallop - which was good and after that a combination of Iberico pig and gambas which was even better. A pity that one of us missed forks and the other knives when the starter came. Also, nobody bothered to bring the wine menu so when the starter came, we didn't have anything to drink. Then, we ordered a dessert - I had cheese - that took extremely long to arrive. The waiter apologised by offering a free glass of porto which was a nice gesture. Anyway, all in all a couple of service flaws but then again, good food and a nice venue. Could be a Very Good but at the moment, Slangevegt does not reach that score...

“Very good: excellent location, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We were here with a group -- the service was friendly and professional throughout the busy evening. The food was really good, especially the fish and tarte tatin. Beautiful location next to the Vecht rivier. One comment: several people in our group had difficulty finding the restaurant, because of an error in navigation/GPS devices. Check a map to make sure where you need to be -- it is very easy to find. Recommended!

“Great place for fine food with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Reservation was taken promptly. Received a nice table along the waterfront on a warm late summer night. House wine, drinks and some bread was served quickly. Kids received children menu but ordered both a la carte and kids courses. Kitchen had difficulty with the timing as starters and main courses were mixed by the children. Coquille excellent, beef tender and the chocolate dessert addictive. The entire family enjoyed it and we come back during to enjoy wine, food and water.

“Best spot along the Vecht”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We have had dinner at Slangevegt several times since many years and it is getting better every time. The location on the banks of the river Vecht is superb, probably the best! The waterside terrace is well shaded, so that it is a real pleasure to sit there and watch the ever interesting activity on the river.
Last time we had dinner at Slangevegt we ordered the surprise menu with accompanying wine selection and it was a nice surprise indeed! A very unusual and tasteful variation of Vitello Tonato was followed by fantastic duck liver (or tender Iberico porc for my wife) and the main course was a great halibut, especially cooked in oil. The style of the food was surprising and so were the wines, but perfectly matching with the food.
One of our favourites!
