When searching for a good restaurant, I found (through this very website), Bij Brons in Almere. I decided to reserve a table for two on a (lovely) Friday evening.

On the phone I chose the "5 gangen menù" which is the most expensive option Bij Brons offers (for a mere €43.50 per person).

Right there on the phone Ivonne (the lady that owns the place, together with her husband, John) impressed me by spelling out my name right ("Giovanni" is, for Dutch-speaking, not the easiest word to pronounce correctly in Italian). Later at the restaurant I understood the reason: she speaks fluent Italian!

But the good things do not end up here. Upon arrival we found a modern restaurant with classic touches that was intimate and warm. Ivonne asked immediately if there was anything we didn't wanted on our menù, to which my wife promptly answered "Onions". Afterwards, as my wife is pregnant, Ivonne said that the salmon we were going to have was fresh and therefore safe for pregnant women. She then offered to take a look whether the paté was safe as well, but I said that I'd Google that. It turns out fresh paté properly conserved is safe.

Let me say that I've never experienced such a level of care for the guests. This may be because we ordered the most expensive menù item, but I doubt it. Bij Brons deserves nothing less than 10 for "Service".

Afterwards, the various courses began appearing. I asked suggestion for the wine. Ivonne chose wisely: first a red (I don't remember the name), then a white Almaral Gewurz to accompany the salmon. Food and wine were nothing short of delicious. (The only nit I'd pick is the quantity of the first four courses: I'd eaten easily twice as much of each, but see below.)

As we approached the fourth course, I took the wine choice in my hands and ordered a red Valpolicella. Upon asking the wine, John (cook and owner) made a big smile, as if I already knew, even if I didn't, what was coming next.

The remaining courses were flawless. Contrary to what I thought by reading the menù, we received 5 courses + dessert. The dessert probably doesn't count as it is served in a glass rather than on a plate.

I gave 9 for "Eten" only for the quantity of the first four courses (the fifth and dessert were more than enough). It'd be a 10 otherwise, but I realise that I'm way above the (Dutch) average when it comes to food quantity.

It really was a magical evening bij Bij Brons. Thanks John and Ivonne.

TLDR: A superb place with great food and a relaxing atmosphere. Recommended.
