I've had the pleasure of dining at the lakes a handful of times. It's both possible to dine inside and at the outside terrace. Food is good, drinks a great but the wine card is amazing at affordable prices. I can fully recommend it.

Lakes is a lovely restaurant housed in a '30 style building located on the edge of a small harbour in Hilversum. Plenty of parking. The terrace was nice enough but we decided to start off in the lounge to share a bottle of champagne and...More
