It was a long time since we had dinner here. Happily surprised about the place: quality of food, setting, professionalism, quality of service, it was all there. Clearly an ambitious restaurant. Two minor comments: the place gets crammed very easily (so fewer seats would improve the quality of experience), and the sommelier should still learn his trade a bit better...

This is a fine dining restaurant. From the moment we entered the service was smooth and slick. The I-pads for the menu worked well, but the staff also explained the choices very well in multiple languages.We had the surprise menu and the sea menu. Both well thought out a perfectly executed. The wine pairing with the sea menu was sublime,... More

First time here, I must say I'm impressed. Very modern kitchen, French-based but with a lot of a-typical ingredients. Everything very fresh, small paintings on a plate, nice service.... come here if you want to impress someone or want to have a culinary lunch/dinner. I certainly will be visiting Spaans Dak again!

After my doctoral defence, had a very nice dinner here. Special dishes, great service, the only downside was the price!

Faultless service with beautiful presentation at this popular and classy restaurant. Various menus from 'Surprise' to 'Gastronomique' on offer as well as a la carte. Surprise menu at €40 consisted of excellent starter and dessert but main pheasant dish was rather bland - could have been chicken! Suchi served with champagne aperitif. Overall, food was good value but wines rather... More

The restaurant is situated in a wonderful location and is housed in a beautiful historical building. Food is excellent and service is super efficient. But dispite the beautiful location and the historical building you shouldn't expect a cozy interior or go there for a romantic or quiet dinner with friends. They opted for a very modern interior: whitewashed walls, menus... More

Everything is just perfect about this restaurant. Location (you can make a beautiful walk before or after you dinner), nice interior, friendliness of the staff, lovely lounge music, and above all: delicious food! We wil surely be back!
