This restaurant left the best impressions – a “must go” eatery with cozy, charming, and welcoming ambience. Hospitable hosts, delicious dishes, beautiful presentation, extensive wine list and wonderful desserts. What an amazing first-time experience and the best food we had in a while. Amazing service,...attentive and observant waiters (but not intrusive). Highly recommend De Vleispaleis as a first option that won’t disappoint – whether for an intimate dinner for two or celebrations with family or friends – you cannot go wrong.More

Had dinner here last week it was just so good. From the moment you walk in the door to be greeted by such professionalism combined with such warmth we knew we were in for something special. Speaking of Special... The Wagyu Ribeye they have is...easily the best steak both myself and my other half have ever had. Do yourself a favor and make sure you visit here. The amazing staff, the unique decor and phenomenal food all combine to make this restaurant a MUST VISITMore

Had the most amazing evening at De Vleispaleis last night. Wonderful welcoming staff who cater to your every need. We were fortunate to be served by Camryn who made sure we were well taken care of. All of her suggestions were spot on. We had...the best prepared steak and melt in your mouth pork belly. After hearing about the desert, we just had to! We had the decadent cheesecake and apple crumble pie served with ice cream. Everything about the restaurant is just amazing! From their friendly staff to the mouth watering food to the beautiful decor. They will be seeing so much more of us!!More

We visited De Vleispaleis for the first time and we will surely be returning. The welcome was warm, the atmosphere was great and the decor very inviting. We were very happy with the young lady who were hosting us, fantastic service and very professional. Food...portions were impressive and hearty, everything very tasty and the special winter menu is a great touch. The vetkoek as a snack was fantastic, really hitting home. We had the Basque Octopus Salad to share, the Lamb Shank & Oxtail (falling-off-the-bone soft!) and a lovely chocolate mousse for dessert. Manager also came to check on us, very friendly and informed. All and all great, can’t wait to taste their steaks!More
