The sun is shining! After some snoozing, we get up and prepare for our weekend trip. We decided to do everything in a relaxed way, and so we left at 10:30 in the morning. Destination: Zeeland, in the South-West of the Netherlands.
Oysters at Yerseke
While my wife was driving, I searched for a good spot to have a lunch. We certainly wanted to go for oysters and mussles. Mussle season had just started. We ended up in a coastal village called: Yerseke. We saw many oyster farms and places where you could taste them. We chose a restaurant called: Restaurant de Branding.
Review restaurant de Branding Yerseke
This restaurant looks a bit outdated, but is still very cozy. There are many guests inside. We chose the 4-course (lunch) menu, the mussles menu for me and the fish menu for my wife. All dishes were fine and I never had mussles this good. The portion size of the mussles was huge! Other dishes such as the lobster and grated oysters where okay, but nothing special. The service was somewhat odd, and very slow. We sat down for three hours, mostly talking and waiting. We had a good lunch and that’s most important. I rate restaurant De Branding with a 7.5 out of 10.
At the beach in Zeeland
After lunch, we returned to our bed and breakfast and then headed to the beach for a two-hour walk to the place Vlissingen and back. The coast is somewhat industrial, due to the large container ships. The direct environment is peaceful, with agriculture and idyllic fields. In some places, a few old German bunkers from WOII were still standing. We drove from village to village and ended up in Domburg.
Review restaurant De Visbar, Domburg
In Domburg, we had dinner in restaurant De Visbar, where we had an outstanding evening with a fresh seafood banquet and a delicious swordfish dish with grilled octopus in a BBQ sauce. The restaurant looks very modern and partly has a glass roof. In the middle of the restaurant, the catch of the day is displayed. The service is very friendly and we had a good time. The prices are reasonable too. I can recommend this place to everyone who loves to eat fresh fish and seafood. I rate restaurant De Visbar with an 8.5 out of 10.
What a beautiful day we had. Awesome!
