About the restaurant De Gouden Bock

De Gouden Bock stands for a cracking fresh kitchen where everything is homemade. The ancient venue dates from the glory days of Middelburg as a trade city and still breaths craftsmanship. The chef is a perfectionist and it shows in the dishes. They also have a nice terrace where you can simply fall down into the pillows. Inside it is light and decorated with fresh flowers.

Menu is original but enough choice. Quality is fine and value for money is very good. Better make a reservation. The wine card is very smal with ordinary wines.

Nice dish variations but expensive compared to portion size and service was very slow considering there were very few customers around. Would recommend the oyesters and sea bass
Modesty .

Well.. what can I say? Rarely have we been so disappointed. We came to Middelburg after a day strolling at the beach and wanted to have a good fish dish. So, we asked around and very friendly people from Middelburg told us to go to the Gouden Bock. We decided on the Surprise Menu, because we just couldn't decide between all the goods on the menu. Big mistake. Appareantly, and "as everybody knows" according to the waitress, the 5-course surprise menu does only contain 1 (yes, one) fish dish! The entrée was a "salad" (3 leaves of lettuce) with 2 very thin slices of your not-so-fancy cheese and 2 equally thin marinated yellow beet slices. The next course consisted of very pale-tasting soup. I guess there was no need to actually use broth for the soup? When asked if all was well, we commented on the paleness of the soup. To be rewarded with our next course, covered in an extra layer of salt... salt? Yes, salt. Because salt equals flavour, right? The ratatouille under the fish filet, by the way, was very lumpy and uninspirational. We then got a piece of beef, reasonably sized as a main course, but without side dish. When asked, we were told that it wasn't served with side dishes. We hoped for the best with the desert and were very, very pleasantly surprised by it. A tiny crême brulé with vanilla ice cream and some raspberries. The vanilla ice cream seemed to be flavoured with something like rosewater of sorts. Very nice touch! Well... to end: we are your frequent restaurant visiters and love to go to upscale places. Why? Becaue I actually work in an upscale restaurant and I like to eat well without effort once in a while as well. All and all very disappointing and even for 35€ it just wasn't worth it. Especially because we were still hungry after this 5 course meal. Maybe the other dishes received more attention, but the Surprise Menu was definitely not worth our time and money. On the plus side; we were told that the Surprise Menu has that many veggies in it, because it all comes from their own garden. Which is nice.
