Visiting 'Kaatje' is a must. The qualities of the chef express themselves in numerous ways: most noticeable in your satisfaction. Do NOT skip Kaatje.

After some saving and looking forward to finally try one of the most known restaurants in the Netherlands I can only say that we were very disappointed. The restaurant is not bad but just doesn't live up to our expectations. The food was good but not very special, the way it looked was plain, very small portions and just not... More

But why to offer (additional payment) an eight portion at the beginning of the dinner. The atmosphere was not particular exciting, the tables have plain wooden tops. The seating have no privacy....

We visit kaatje almost every year and everytime we are surprises with great flavours. The service and ambiance are great and an excellent wine selection accompanies the great food.

I liked the service and how the restaurant looked inside. We tried 7 dishes proef menu. All the dishes were very tasty - for me the portions could be bigger:)

We stopped two nights in Katje bij de Sluis because it is not only a restaurant, but also a small exclusive residence (about 50 metres from the restaurant). Both hotel and restaurant were exclusive and very, very high quality. Service was first class, rooms were first class and, in the restaurant, the food was first class. If you are looking... More

We had a 10 course amuse diner. What a great! Every course was so special, loket beautiful and tastend delicious! It was Nice to spend the night AT their small boutique hotel. It really was worth the drive to Blokzijl which is a Nice little village.

Kaatje is one of the classic's. Last time was over 10 yrs ago. But Kaatje even improved. Excellent value for money. All dishes are wonderful designed. The best dish? I think the dutch lobster lasagna. Great delicate flavors.
