Definitely lives up to its name of being one the best and oldest Indonesian restaurants in NL. Having had many Rijsttafel meals in the country, we thought the food and service were exceptional. The portions are generous and the flavours refined. We liked the atmosphere...- modestly fancy with an intimate and cozy vibe. We would definitely return on our next visit to Hilversum.More
I've been coming here for many years now and I've never been disappointed. Original Indonesian cuisine "with a twist"..
I highly recommend the "Rijsttafels" - Rice tables. They just keep bringing plates of delicious food. Or ask what's on special that day. Can't miss!
Got a table on a Sunday evening without reserving ahead. We were lucky to sit outside in the garden and enjoyed both the garden and a good meal. Staff was professional, friendly and very efficient with eye for detail. It must have been 15 years...since my last visit and it felt good to be back. Our teenagers loved it too, so we will certainly visit again.More
This place is supposed to be one of the best Indonesian restaurants in the Netherlands. Not so. I know of at least two better ones in Amsterdam and one in Haarlem. The place is good, OK, but far from great. In a quiet residentail neighbourhood....Attentive service, average food. Oh, when I booked my table I said it was for our wedding anniversary and received no special attention at all.More
The restaurant is located in a residential neighborhood of Hilversum and has been in a family business for 35 years. The Chardonnay was of high quality and served at the correct temperature. The fare that needed warmed constantly was placed on small stoves that kept...the food warm throughout the two hour meal. The house was full for dinner so the service was really kept stepping keeping everybody happy. The food was spiced lightly but enough for good savoring. This is a bright light of Indonesia in the middle of the Netherlands.More
Very good Chinese restaurant. A change from traditional recipes, a perfect surprise. Both for family and business meetings perfect location. The menu is a very welcome surprise, don't bother to choose, ask the chef to create a menu.
I used to go to this restaurant for lunch with foreign guests since it was the only place within walking distance of Radio Nederland Wereldomroep. This family restaurant started at this location in 1972, and it has been going strong since then. They have some...famous (hot) fish dishes, but I usually just go for the rijstafel. They have tables inside in what looks like a living room and also a small patio which is nice on warm summer evenings. Went back there after a decade in August 2017 to find little had changed. The quality of many Asian restaurants in "Het Gooi" has gone downhill - partly because of competition from all you can eat wok restaurants. But that is NOT the case with Spandershoeve. They don't seem to be part of on-line booking services, so you can only book in advance on the phone it seems.
Do check the directions before you set out. They are tucked away in a residential area of Hilversum with winding streets and giant villas. It is easy to get lost if you haven't set the navigation.More
