Marvelous Japanese restaurant.
I had dinner at Chez Oki with friends and we had an absolutely lovely evening. The French speaking waiter was very friendly and gave us the opportunity to choose the table at the window. He also recommended some nice wines with our food. The restaurant is very beautiful and stylish with a small pebble garden on the inside. Toilets were also very clean.
But enough about the decor, let’s talk about the food! Superlatives need to be used here. We all went for the four courses surprise menu and we were very impressed. Every course was very refined and beautifully presented. The taste reminded me of some of the best food I enjoyed in Japan. The chef really is an artist.

Beluga loves you is everything you expect form a two star restaurant. The beautifully presented dishes are absolutely delicious. Every course is prepared with great attention to detail and each course comes accompanied with great wines.
The restaurant is very spacious and beautifully decorated. We started our evening in the bar, moved to the dining room for our main courses and finished the evening off with some coffee or tea in the bar again.
What made our visit really stand out, besides the food and the lovely wines, was the staff. Such pleasant people! We had great fun talking and laughing with them and it was clear they really enjoyed what they were doing.
Beluga truly loves you. A food experience to not be missed.

When looking for breakfast we ended up in De Poshoorn, mostly because they served eggs benedict, which is my favorite breakfast in the world.
The interior is very beautiful and references the name of the place with old mailboxes on the wall. I also loved the beautiful bar with lots of beers on tap. We sat at an old workers bench, while skulls of dead game were looking down up us, really special.
So far so good. What followed must have been the biggest disappointment of my life. When my eggs benedict arrived, I immediately saw those were not the real deal. I don’t know what sauce was served beside my eggs, but surely that was no sauce hollandaise. It mostly resembled mayonnaise and tasted dreadfully. The poached eggs were a true disgrace. The yolk of the egg wasn’t even fluid! Since I was hungry I ate it all, but I really cannot understand which cook would dare to serve this dish and call it eggs benedict.
My companions had ordered the full option breakfast and were equally disappointed. The granola wasn’t home made, the scrambled egg portion was way to small, no value for money whatsoever.
Very disappointed. Just don’t have breakfast here, period. I think you are better off just having a beer or something.

Had a lovely dinner at Paviljoen Meerzicht. The restaurant has a spectacular view on the Grevelingenmeer. When weather permits you can enjoy eating or drinking outside on the beautiful terrace.
Staff is friendly, but could be trained better. For instance they forgot to bring an extra menu and I had to pour my own prosecco from the bottle.
Prices are very reasonable: the catch of the day (which was salmon) costs 15 euro. My sea bass was about 20 euro. The fish was really fresh and perfectly cooked. I would have loved some more vegetables on my plate though.
We couldn’t resist ordering dessert. I really loved the absolutely fabulous apfelstrüdel! Not a Dutch specialty, but great nonetheless! We had a very lovely evening at Paviljoen Meerzicht and would definitely visit again.

Greet place if you enjoy spring rolls (rice paper rolls with different fillings). The concept is fusion: of course spring rolls are Asian, but Knees to chin gives some of them a local touch. You order at the counter and the staff brings your order to your table. I tried the Peking duck and the smoked salmon, which were both freshly prepared and really excellent. The prices are very reasonable, so you can also eat one of them when you’re craving a healthy snack.
The interior is simple, but cosy. Loved the big chalkboard!
I’m a fan of the Knees to Chin concept!
