It's a nicely decorated place in a beautiful area. It's a good place to have lunch, dinner, or just a coffee break. Their menu is extensive, and also includes lots of vegetarian dinner options. They have many different beers. It all tastes great!

Cozy meeting place for hikers, sportmen, families in the wood of Vijlen. The food was good, big portion and tasty. Nice atmosphere.

Lovely setting in the woods. Decent pub food. Attitude of senior waiter was terrible and spoiled visit. Very disappointing after the good reviews that we read before going to the cafe.

This pub/dining is nicely situated in the hills of south-Netherland. Cosy atmosphere, good beers and decent kitchen. Open for lunch and diner. A good place to end after a beautifull day of hillwalking

We got here just in time before closing and enjoyed a wonderful meal with great beer. We loved the rustic, 'cabin in the woods' ambiance and the wonderful smell from the food. It was super cozy and inviting. I look forward to eating here again...More

Great beer that's specially brewed for 't Hijgend Hert. Nice ambiance that make's you feel you're having a great holiday with enjoyable comforting food 365 days a year. Sometimes its a bit overcrowded....

Description
A welcoming restaurant and bar in the middle of the woods. Food is mainly wild game, rich and tasty. Log fires and wood burning stoves. There is no type of cuisine in your list to describe the type of food. 'Artisan' or 'Rustic' springs to mind. Perhaps you should add them to the list.
