“Good fresh food made by those who care about food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

I had a coriander seed and fennel pizza. I am not a vegetarian but it was very tasty. Good breakfast but take it easy on the sour dough bread as its very hard to resist. Its got a pretty cool open plan kitchen and a relaxed atmosphere.

“original surroundings, nice food, and quite busy place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

the restaurant (there's a hotel too) is set in an old waterworks, with a large garden (herbs, fruits and vegetables are all used in the various dishes), and must be one of the better places in Dordrecht, taking into account the number of people having lunch on a Saturday.
The food is good, well presented, and portions are OK, though you shuld not take one of the salads as a lunch, unless you never eat much at lunch-time. But then, the cheescake can help, and it is delicious. If you like beef, the Hereford-steak is just perfect.
Prices are reasonable, and wine by the glass is of good quality. Worth a visit whenever you're in Dordrecht

“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

I have had 2 meals at this restaurant, after travelling from a long distance, and both times I have been very impressed with the food and atmosphere at Villa Augustus. At some of the tables you can watch the chef create the magnificent food. It is so nice that they grow their own vegetables and you can buy them from the shop too. I will definitely be going again! The shop attached is full of quirky things and lots of their own food for sale.

“Lovely restaurant, wonderful food and great surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

When you look at the building you would never guess what it is, the hotel looks like a cross between adams family mansion and a lighthouse, I love the quirky interior and the food was amazing. I had fish and a salad from the garden which had edible flowers in it, it was almost too beautiful to eat! after the meal we walked through the gardens and through the hotel and saw the shuttle ferries to Rotterdam. Would love to stay here sometime.

“Great Food in a Unique Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We have been a few times for lunch, and it's just perfect. The food is great - their grilled veggie appetizer, pizza, and panna cotta are all simply delicious. This is a place that has a garden on-site in which they grow veggies to use in the restaurant, and to-date this is the best example I've seen yet (anywhere) - there is a staff that manages the farming. The design of the restaurant is super unique and impressive and the grounds are beautiful, as they do not just grow veggies but also a ton of flowers. The shop also has some cute and unique items.
