“Fine food in a relaxing environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

De eetkamer is situated in the old centre of Middelburg, Park your car outside the historic centre and take a walk to the restaurant. This is already rewarding in itself. My wife and I went there on an evening in may. We did not make reservations but there was place and the welcome was cordial. Since it was evening we did not want to eat too much so we' both ordered their specialty 'beef Wellington'. We had a bottle of white wine while waiting (it takes about 35 minutes to cook). With the wine came some interesting amuse bouches.After half an hour came the Beef Wellington: we both can heartily recommend this: it is a very exceptionally tenderly cooked piece of beef in a nice crust of puff pastry. The tought of it while writing the article makes the water come in my mouth. Heartily recommended.

“Excellent food in an intimate atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2009

"Eetkamer" means "dining room" in English and that is exactly the feeling you get when you dine here: that you have been invited to someone's home dining room. The ambiance is intimate and cosy.
The food on the menu is classic but inventive and the presentation is excellent. Classic ingredients like scallops, foie gras, shrimps and salmon are always found on the menu. The sauces are wonderful and many of the dishes have a mediterranean feel.
There are set menus of 4 to 6 courses that give a good impression of the cook's style but you can also order á la carte. The quantities may be a bit on the rich side.
The service is always very friendly and attentive. On very busy nights you may find that you may have to wait a little longer for your food, especially if you ordered á la carte. But it is not a punishment to spend a little more time in this place, in fact you should treat dinner here as a full night out.
It may be wise to make reservations, especially on weekends outside of summer.
