Out on the country side but very close to the sea, we went to enjoy a Sunday lunch in this stylish decorated restaurant. Private parking that gives you a look into the kitchen. The owner is chef, his wife is in charge of the guests. They efficiently run de place, with all dishes arriving on time although the place was... More

The food is prepared as it should be; simple, no special techniques, no mousses or foams anymore but a good plate of real honoust food. So if you would like to enjoy the basic kitchen... More

After having had some bad experiences on the seafront we decided to go inland for a meal this time and it definitely was a great decision. This place is mostly visited by locals and very busy, most tables are taken twice per night. We were served some homemade crisps and had a tasty cocktail maison to start off with. We... More

Classical French oriented cuisine in a nice setting with very friendly staff. The Menu is varied and everybody will find something to their liking. If there is to be one drawback, it's that the restaurant can be quite loud when filled out (evenings and weekends). I would definitely recommend De Kruidenmolen for a casual diner with friends.

Nice and quiet environment at some distance from the touristic coastline. Friendly and attentive staff. Superb dinner: filled ray wings in combination with a dry white wine. Delicious. Good food - Good price.

This is what we want: fresh produce, classical dishes to perfection with incredible tast! The service is attentive and correct. But those dishes: the sliptongetjes (small soles) fried in very tasty butter have an awsome taste. Never, never tasted better sole. Don't expect circus food, michelin style, fluffy mousses, yakky ' structures', nitrous oxide or a puffed up chef, that... More
