Really enjoyed this small, cozy restaurant located about a 20 min walk from the central Burg/Markt square. Interior room with fireplace, orangerie and outdoor private garden, all attractive. Chef is papa, servers are his daughters (I believe). Food was in the classic French style but...More

Het Zwaantje is very excellent dining, at a small very nice restaurant, with equally excellent service. Go there if you want to have a gastronomic evening.

This was a really enjoyable experience. Although the food has to be the main star, (it was!) - this family run restaurant had all the other ingredients for a superb evening. Music was restrained, lovely white crisp tablecloths, limited number of tables inside - but...More

This was recommended by our hotel clerk. It was a lovely meal served from a small kitchen by a small team - almost like a chef's kitchen meal. It made the entire meal more participatory and the staff was lovely. The meal was great and...More
