Well appointed table with incredible views . Food looks simple on menus but did not disappoint on the plate or palate. Staff in training for busy season were being over seen with expert guidance. Great wine choices .

Hi, Clare I'd advise you to try their wines. They are very good. I'd especially recommend the pairings they do with their meals. So delicious!

Not open in the winter months. I also believe the owner of Buitenverwachting has closed the picnic's forever which is a pity.
