With no fewer than 8 Zeeland star restaurants, Zeeland has the most star restaurants per person in the Netherlands. The restaurants are famous for their outstanding cuisine and excellent hospitality. Salty flavours, hearty products and boundless creativity guarantee amazing taste experiences. Here’s a list of some of our favourites.


Besides a myriad of star restaurants, Zeeland’s the place to enjoy some of the country’s trendiest and best beach bars. Where you can sit back and enjoy a Zeeland beer. Or a bottle of bubbly to celebrate the beautiful weather. From fruit de mer to the ever-popular bitterbal (which in Zeeland is often served with wakame or lobster).

Brooklyn Beach in Domburg is gritty, industrial and super accessible. Your destination for beachy comfort food, mussels with a sea view, and special BBQ evenings. Best of all, this beach bar is open all day, from breakfast to dinner, all year round. Non-stop enjoyment!


We’ve also listed a couple of kiddie-friendly hotspots. And guess what? They’re just as much fun for parents! At the Houtzaagwerf in Kortgene it’s like being in the south of France. Chickens scurry about beneath the tables and folding chairs, there are plenty of pretty coloured cushions and throws, and the small menu is on chalkboards. The Kaslokaal in Oostkapelle was once a greenhouse. And there’s all kinds of fun stuff to do. Almost everything served in the greenhouse and tea garden is grown in the greenhouse, the garden or locally. Not far from Goes, in Grijpskerke, is Hof Poppendamme, a large eco farm with lots of activities for kids. There are bouncy castles, a huge sandbox, trampolines, bunnies, a real 'experience garden' and charming seating areas for young and old. It’s a fun place to visit, even if the weather’s not too great. At the end of the cosy Sint Janstraat in Middelburg is Het Lokaaltje, a children's cafe where the kids can play, you can shop for gifts, and enjoy a sunny patio.


Spoiled for choice? We have a few more gems for you. First Codium, in Goes. Exciting, elegant and star-worthy. It’s not just the food that’s amazing; Codium’s interior is unique. Tucked away in the Zak van Zuid-Beveland is a little chapel built in 1912. Lots of visitors adore the Kleine Toren van Baarland. And so do we. The State team in Lamswaarde is young and fun and goes all-out to make sure guests have a fantastic evening. Beautifully located in the former and famous Petrus & Paulus Hoeve. Another must-visit eatery is Hof aan Zee in Koudekerke. Located in a historic Scandinavian farm, Hof aan Zee is an ode to Noma's New Nordic Cuisine, once the best restaurant in the world. The menu features local, seasonal products.
