The Hielander

Reviewed By chache47 - Cherry Hill

My wife and I traveled to Alkmaar and had dinner in a lovely Scottish restaurant with a huge selection of whisky. We both decided to have the "surprise" three course meal with whisky accompaniment. What a great choice! We started with a terrine and a whisky made for the twenty fifth anniversary of The Hielander and it was the best of the three. For our main course we had beef from a highlander cow and Haggis. The beef was delicious and so was the Haggis. They make their own Haggis at the restaurant and it was great! The dessert was a mixture of berries, oatmeal and cream. What an incredible meal and I believe it was the owners, husband and wife, that served us and they were awesome. He explained each whisky and the meals perfectly and enhanced our visit. The ambience was lovely. They really created a lovely Scottish pub in North Holland. If you find yourselves in Alkmaar, like we did, you will have a spectacular meal and a wonderful time at The Hielander.

De Lamoraal

Reviewed By pietro b b b - Barga, Italy

Three of us went there a few nights ago. It was dinner time, andw the place was packed with people coming for the "dagschotel" (dish of the day). This is an excellent way to dip into the home cooking of Holland (here we had "stamppot", a sort of mashed potato with greens in it and meat on top). There is a good informal athmosfere, service is correct, and you get good value for money. We spent under 100 EUR for the three of us, including starter, main dish, wine and coffee: for Bergen, this is good value for money. Smokers can sit outside with a blanket.

De Oude Prins

Reviewed By pietro b - Barga, Italy

Went there a couple of nights back with my wife.
What we liked: sitting near the right window, we had a good view of the magnificent ruinekerk (the church of bergen partly in ruins); the service was good and fast; the main course ( foe yong hai -omelette with vegs-, and the chow ming -noodles with shrimps-) were nice.
What we didnt like: loempjas too dry, soup with a bytaste, kroepoek not up to standards, omelette sauce far too sweet.
I would not go back so easily.

Grand Cafe Bourgogne

Reviewed By Vrtw - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

I have eaten here 3 times in the last 4 years with the most recent visit being last week. I come here because it's the only michelin star restaurant in the area but to be honest every time i have eaten here i have thought to myself that i should go somewhere else next time..this time i am definitely sticking to it. Having a Michelin star means that expectations are high and although is good and the service is good i still expect excellent especially at the price. On our last visit for my birthday my husband had asked them to do something special with dessert for the celebration. He even called on the sane day as a reminder. They did nothing. When we were leaving he spoke to a staff member(who seemed to be in charge) in my presence to ask what happened. The staff member said he had heard about it but didn't know what went wrong. He was rather nonchalant and didn't even a proper apology to us. My husband and i were disappointed by this.

Bistro de 13 Balcken

Reviewed By piedep - Antwerp, Belgium

I can advise this place for its warm ambiance. The food was disappointing for being the number 1 place in Alkmaar. They certainly pay a lot of attention to the visual aspect of the dishes, but the taste combinations are somewhat questionable. Nice wine houses Luigi Bosca, Newton Johnson, ... on the wine list, but the lower quality ranges. The waiter beliefs to give a professional explanation. I expected more...

De Vlaminck

Reviewed By Dennis V - Alkmaar, The Netherlands

It's easy. You walk up to the counter and you order fries. You can order from a selection of toppings, such as mayonaise (hey, it's Dutch!) and you get what you need: perfectly cooked, golden brown fries, the way they should be.
This is by far the best place in the area to get the fries. No Seating, no fancy restaurant, just a paper bag with fries in them. What more could you want?

Wonder's eten & drinken

Reviewed By Tramx - Holland

It was not busy at all on a Sunday night. We took the shared dining for two and it was surprisingly good. Soup and some hot dishes to start with, followed some cold dishes which included very good tuna fish, smoked salmon, carpaccio and Italian ham. A very nice dinner for a reasonable price. The white house wine was OK.

We were there pretty early, but is was quite busy already. The tables for two were very close together. Food is not too fancy, but good.

Zilte Zoen

Reviewed By Orangegator - Anchorage

Then you need to go to Zilte Zoen at the base of the huge sand dune hill. Exercise all you want - run up the hill if you want (I double dog dare you to!!!) and then run down being careful of the bodies along the way. The main trip, it seems, is to run a bit then crash in the sand, get up; run, crash, get up; ad inf. At the top go a little further for another great view of the area.
Then go to the Zilte Zoen at the bottom for your just rewards - an excellent array of coffees, beers, and lunch ideas with an attentive wait staff.
Then find a place to nap...
