Compared to anywhere else in The Netherlands, Zeeland counts more excellent restaurants per head of the population. Eight locations, twelve Michelin stars. Five of those restaurants are located in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. Belgians love to come and dine here.
The success recipe of Zeeland
It is a subtle balance between correctness and hospitality. A no-nonsense mentality. But also dare to bring so called food theatre. The pillars of successful haute cuisine in Zeeland are talented chefs, and a driven service. But also the proximity to Belgium weighs in. They love eating out, preferably at a beautiful location. Having a lunch or dinner combined with some good wine. Belgians have set a good example, for the Dutch to start eating differently.
