A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Het Bib Gourmand menu bestaat uit mooie gerechten zoals langoustine, foie gras, oesters en meer van dat soort fijne dingen. Bereid met Franse technieken, maar waar ook waarde wordt gehecht aan de totaalbeleving van de gast. Kijk niet gek op als je opeens een cloche met rook voor je neus krijgt. Chef en eigenaar Tom Biesenbeek heeft onder andere gekookt bij Bridges* en Vis aan de Schelde. Mede-eigenaar Floris van Ginkel zorgt ervoor dat de gasten niets tekort komen.

Tip van bySam: Restaurant Van Vlaanderen heeft ook een prachtig terras aan de gracht. Ideaal voor een mooie zomeravond.

    Very nice place as always. We love it. Small slip ups though like presenting a foie gras to a vegetarian, that’s sloppy.

    The place was full and there were two VERY loud large tables. It was impossible to hear your neighbour talk or talk to the waiters. I felt stressed and tired by the constant very loud noise, it was unbearable. The food was good and our young male waiter was very helpful. The place needs a throughout rennovation, it looks very old and dated and features only hard materials which is terrible for the accoustics.

    The bloom has gone off this rose - Van Vlaanderedn is not as good as it once was, especially the service. A pity! A have been coming here for many years but wil not come next time.

    What a fabulous restaurant! I am a vegan and my husband is an ominvore. I had some difficulty finding a nice restaurant with a tasting menu that would agree to do a full tasting menu for me. Most places I wrote to, did not even bother to write me back. They said that they would accommodate me, and they did more than that. They presented me with 7 beautiful vegan dishes. My husband was equally impressed with the regular tasting menu dishes that he received. The pace was a little slow and the service a little off in places, but neither was so bad as to interfere with the overall enjoyment of a fantastic meal.

    A truly wonderful culinary experience! From the moment we were invited to step inside we were treated like royalty! We described each mouthful of food as “like a firework in your mouth” ..so much flavour. We’ll be back!

    Courteous and attentive staff, pleasant atmosphere and view and deliciously unique food. We ordered entrees and could have gone with the chef's selections which looked great. Unfortunately, we were pressed for time. Would love to go back.
