Staying in the (slightly isolated) hotel this was the choice for dinner, and a good option too! There's a modern menu, with enough choices for most people, meat, fish, and vegetarian. Table service was great ordering and for food arriving, trying to get the bill proved difficult, even though there are plenty of staff. I chose the veal rack for... More

Lovely food. Popular with families. Good set menu and they always cook the steaks perfectly... Fish courses are very good... Lovely outside area for the summer

I have been in the hotel, so the quickest way to dinner is have dinner in the same hotel. The menu is good and enought,

I ordered one of the best steaks on the menu, but it was drenched in some type of tomato/pepper sauce that was distasteful. Will not eat here again.

Came late to the hotel and had to get dinner for three persons. Staff was very welcoming and friendly even though food was ordered soon before closing hour. Food was well prepared and delicious.

Unlike American hotel restaurants where the food is usually horrible. A wide range of menu choices, including some combos recommended by the chefs. Generous portions. Because it does appeal to business travelers, it is often very full and busy. Service seems to be a bit spotty depending on how many large groups are seated at once. Good wine selection, reasonable... More

It took forever before being served for (at first) just a coffee. Same story for the second coffee. Then I ordered an omelette and even though it wasn't busy at all it took a really long time and I nearly had to cancel the order because I had to leave. The omelette itself was the most disappointing I've seen in... More

Quality is going down in both the hotel and in the restaurant. Food was served very quickly and fairly expensive for the quality. I had to ask several times for the bill although the waiter was playing with his mobile just in front of my table. Really not the best restaurant

Recently we visited the restaurant, and there was no table available in a light area. We asked for a table near the window, however most tables were occupied by flexworkers who installed their laptop or backpacks and were nowhere to be seen. The manager, when asked replied that it was no problem to them because they welcome everyone. After a... More

I write this title reluctantly, because generally I have come to appreciate the Van der Valk restaurants. That's why Van der Valk Nieuwerkerk was selected for dinner with friends for a celebration. I never visited Van der Valk Nieuwerkerk, but recently I had a satisfactory dinner at Van der Valk Drachten (see my review), so I anticipated another treat. But,... More
