This is an absolute fine dining experience. We visited this restaurant more than 10 years ago and were impressed by the quality of the food, service and - of course - location. These days, the dining room had a complete make-over but is still cosy and the food remains superb. Quality is outstanding and portions are keen, which is just... More

The reception was very friendly with a very nice and capable sommelier. Unfortunately the food was not impressive and although the waitresses were friendly they were not capable of michelin star service

Went to have dinner here just before Christmas. it's really a place you should go to in the summer - but if you want to have a wonderful meal at a one-star Michelin restaurant, anytime is a good time - and the good thing is that it has its own hotel opposite the restaurant so that you don't have to...

Visiting 'Kaatje' is a must. The qualities of the chef express themselves in numerous ways: most noticeable in your satisfaction. Do NOT skip Kaatje.

After some saving and looking forward to finally try one of the most known restaurants in the Netherlands I can only say that we were very disappointed. The restaurant is not bad but just doesn't live up to our expectations. The food was good but not very special, the way it looked was plain, very small portions and just not... More

For dinner we selected Kaatje bij de Sluis, a well known restaurant in the Netherlands. The dinner was 7 small portions of excellent quality food and special presentation. But why to offer (additional payment) an eight portion at the beginning of the dinner. The atmosphere was not particular exciting, the tables have plain wooden tops. The seating have no privacy....

I liked the service and how the restaurant looked inside. We tried 7 dishes proef menu. All the dishes were very tasty - for me the portions could be bigger:)

This place is very much worth of its Michelen star. To eat here is a treat, the food is great as is the service.
