Many of the traditional family owned Rijsttafel restaurants have by now been closed. This is the only one that as far as I know is still open. Can highly recommend.

The restaurant is located in a residential neighborhood of Hilversum and has been in a family business for 35 years. The Chardonnay was of high quality and served at the correct temperature. The fare that needed warmed constantly was placed on small stoves that kept the food warm throughout the two hour meal. The house was full for dinner so the service was really kept stepping keeping everybody happy. The food was spiced lightly but enough for good savoring. This is a bright light of Indonesia in the middle of the Netherlands.

Very good Chinese restaurant. A change from traditional recipes, a perfect surprise. Both for family and business meetings perfect location. The menu is a very welcome surprise, don't bother to choose, ask the chef to create a menu.

I used to go to this restaurant for lunch with foreign guests since it was the only place within walking distance of Radio Nederland Wereldomroep. This family restaurant started at this location in 1972, and it has been going strong since then. They have some famous (hot) fish dishes, but I usually just go for the rijstafel. They have tables inside in what looks like a living room and also a small patio which is nice on warm summer evenings. Went back there after a decade in August 2017 to find little had changed. The quality of many Asian restaurants in "Het Gooi" has gone downhill - partly because of competition from all you can eat wok restaurants. But that is NOT the case with Spandershoeve. They don't seem to be part of on-line booking services, so you can only book in advance on the phone it seems.

Do check the directions before you set out. They are tucked away in a residential area of Hilversum with winding streets and giant villas. It is easy to get lost if you haven't set the navigation.

A top quality restaurant with excellent service. Not cheap, but worth every penny. Don't miss this one if you should be in the neighborhood
