De Oesterbeurs one of several top-end restaurants in Zeeland that participate in a collective venture to promote the Oosterschelde Kreeft (lobster) at this time of year. The restaurant is located in the centre of the quiet and charming little port of Yerseke in a historical building decorated inside in a contemporary style.
On arrival we received a genuinely friendly greeting, were relieved of our coats and shown to our table. We were instantly absorbed into the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere of the place. The staff were attentive, happy and helpful. When we had reserved by internet I had indicated that my partner had an intolerance to lactose, so were quietly impressed when the person taking our order confirmed this with us without any prompting. We both chose the special 3 course lobster menu devised for the Oosterschelde promotion.
Before the first course was served we each received an "amuse-bouche" to whet our appetite. I received a small seafood mouse and for my partner they had prepared a small mackerel pate with a ball of wasabi sorbet - both truly delicious and prepared with care.
The first course was a lobster salad, with amongst other things, some truffle mayonnaise, kinoa, parmesan and shallot chutney. The main course was based around grilled lobsters served with asparagus, sandfire, pistachios and lime. For each course they had prepared a special, equally exciting, lactose-free alternative for my partner.
The wine card offered a selection of well chosen and interesting, good quality wines from a variety of countries.
Overall the restaurant impressed us by the quality and interesting combinations of flavours, the friendly atmosphere and attentive service. A perfect venue for a quiet and delicious meal as a couple or a small group.

I read this restaurant was voted most popular restaurant in Zeeland, by the readers of hte regional newspaper, and I couldn't resist going there. We simply had a 3.5 hour fantastic dining experience, what a night out, couldn't have been better. From the moment we walked in and we were welcomed by the staff until we walked out this was a memorable dining experience. We went for the 50 euro 4-course menu and were not disappointed. This is a great chef and his team at work, no doubt about it. The amuses set the tone, and continued all the way to the little snacks we got with our coffees. The chef cooks to very high standard, and the combinations of ingredients and tastes will blow you away. We took a house chardonay that fit very well with all the complex combination of testes, and was very complimentary to the food, at 21 euros a bargain.All in all we had a great night and paid around 65 euros per person, all in. For such high quality a bargain. Leave the small kids at home so you can take your time.

Excellent!, to put in one word, certainly worth to visit again in the future.

We have had a lunch, lobster soup as starter, lobster thermidor (a la Paris) accompanied with a very nice glass of white wine from Germany (award winning) and a seasonal dessert made of a combination with cherries and cheese. The was prepared as tasted as how it should ever be made with some cream and Cognac VSOP, a softer Cognac but very tasty in the soup. The main course was well prepared, all the hard work was already done, I could open the lobster very easy to take the meat out. Very well prepared and it tasted as heaven! The dessert was a unique combination of flavors and (crispy) bites which topped of the lunch for us.

A very friendly and we'll organized service as well, which provided a good atmosphere in the restaurant which is nicely decorated and provides a comfortable feeling to have lunch. I am surprised that this restaurant is not yet placed as number one in TripAdvisor in the village Yerseke because they definitely deserve that!!!

Visited this restaurant last October 2015 for the 3rd time in 5 years. First time great, overwhelming dishes mainly fish, fresh sole. The staff very thoughtful and friendly.
The second time as can recall a lobster accompanied with some sensations. I had the slight idea of overcooked, lobster meat should be gentle. This one tended to curiaceous.
Knocked by splended lobsters in Galacian restaurants the last visit to this restaurant I ordered the fruits de mer. Disapointed though maybe to big expactations.
