Fodor's Expert Review De Godevaart
Tradition gets a modern infusion here, where a resolutely old-fashioned atmosphere is enlivened by a smattering of contemporary art, and head chef Dave de Belder turns out classic dishes presented with an artist's eye for flair. From fillet of lamb surrounded by a forest of green and wild garlic, to a deliciously gamey pigeon en croute, the choices are seasonal and big on flavor. The outdoor terrace at the back is also a pleasant spot in summer.
