3 star Michelin means worth the journey and we certainly agree with that! We had the tasting menu, with excellent (and very generous) wine pairing with each course. Imaginative and beautiful looking food in a stylish modern setting. Not at all heavy - for example our starter was a marble-size ball of beef tartar, mixed with oyster, in a crisp... More

A big fan of its competitor close by, I wanted to treat myself to a new dining experience with my girlfriend and my parents. Good choice, amazing service and a memorable dining experience. Will be back next time I visit Knokke again!

Everything about this restaurant is nicely in balance with its reputation. We had a wonderful tasting menu of which the portions were perfectly sized, allowing us to finish the desert with the same enthusiasm as the first course. Also nice was the "bob" arrangement, this means that you get a small amount of the matching wines with each course without... More

Food, drinks and service from top level! This is a 2 star restaurant with view on Belgian sea side. Especially the starters were fantastic!

Last Sunday, on the occasion of my birthday, my wife and I had invited three other couples for lunch at the Bartholomeus. We opted for the unparalleled menu "Terre et Mer". All courses were superb, but the one that really stood out was the "Wagyu tartare Gillardeau". We took for the sake of convenience the accompanying wines, which were OK,... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Bartholomeus very much. The menu was interesting and creative, very tasty and looked pretty. The only thing I'd do differently the next time is not to go with the wine-pairing.

Dining at Bartholomeus is always a privilege and a real feast! Also yesterday we had the pleasure of dining the Bartholomeus menu. At Bartholomeus the complementary wines are a true added value to the menu so I can fully recommend to take the wines the sommelier proposes, which I can't advise to do so - in general - at other...

What the chef does with food is magic, fresh and local as seasonal products. His wife who earned the title as best hostess is absolutely right, she brings the guest in a perfect atmosphere were one can enjoye a fabulous experience of haute cuisine.
