Beautifully restored place, atmospheric and with a beautiful garden in summer. The staff is most friendly, the house wines are good (three white ones are served per glass, the Chardonnay was tasty). I had the tuna as a starter, which was very tasteful and the sea bass as main course, which was good and well-prepared, although I felt the vegetables... More

Located in an old - modernized - flour factory at the outskirts of town this restaurant is not easy to reach if you are not a local (and have access to transportation). But if you get there, prepare for a good meal at a unique location. Most of their food and ingredients comes from local farmers and producers (as much... More

Walked in for dinner without a reservation. Dinning in the conservatory area ( which could be opened weather permitting) gives one the pleasure of enjoying the garden. The view of their small home garden with various veggies and herbs is encouraging to note that they are keen on fresh produce. You have the choice to sit inside for a larger... More

Interesting industrial type of setting for this restaurant. The interior is very nice, spacious, well lit and modern while having an older industrial feel. We had a large group, but they put us in the back area of the restaurant with plenty of room. We were welcomed with an aperitif, but their bar had other drink options for us. Our... More

Nice place, friendly staff good service. You can sit outside, in the sun lounge or inside. We sat in the sun lounge which was nice and light. The menu for dinner is not very big but still you can choose from enough dishes. Food is good and they use local ingredients.

We enjoyed our meal in the sunroom and could look out at all the foods being grown for the meal. The food is good but pricey and not as... More

I visited here a few days ago with three other adults and two children. We had been walking for about three miles, it was cold and we were getting hungry.

I have been to the Zijlstroom many times for lunch - never for dinner. They have a good variety of food in my opinion, always fresh. In the summertime, I love their terrace, but sitting inside in the patio in autumn and winter is great too. Always a pleasure to go to this place.
