Arrived there after a day's sailing and rather too much sun. But my wife was eager to try a new restaurant. The surroundings are fairly simple, clean. And unpretentious. The service is not - they clearly are proud of their fare and rightly so. A series of quality dishes in carefully dosed quantities. Different and unusual associations of taste which... More

We've had dinner at this restaurant before when staying in De Haan since we quite enjoy the excellent food and nice atmosphere. We always opt for the 6 course menu including the accompanying wines, which are of a good selection and quality. When we finished our main menu, we were asked whether we wanted to substitute 2 dessert courses for... More

I've been her for at least four times and sometimes I was in Heaven and some times I was a little disappointed. To small portions, to long between starter and main course. But he's a great Chef. Still young, he needs to mature.

We already came earlier to Market XI, but this time it wasn't so cozy... We saw on their website that there was a 3 course menu @ €45. we found this interesting, only it was not valid on friday, saturday and holidays. Ok, no problem, we are sunday. We ask the 3 course menu and the lady says: This 3... More

Markt XI is a modern gastronomical restaurant at the centre of the beautiful town of De Haan. Decoration is stylishly plain with a distinguished ambiance. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the service works efficiently, as one would expect from a high level fine dining restaurant. The menu allows both pre-designed 4 or 6 course menus and an A'la Carte... More

This is one of the best restaurants you can find in this part of Belgium. The chef creates amazing recipes with incredible tasteful ingredients. He also dares to mix ingredients that you would not expect. From the starter until the desert, everything was perfect and the wines served to match as they should. We took the 6 course menu (there...

This was our first experience in Markt XI and I must say we enjoyed every piece of it. We went for the chef's menu with 6 courses, which offered us a good variety and every course was very tasty. The wines accompanying the menu were a great match and are nicely explained by the hostess. The atmosphere is very relaxing,... More

Fantastic evening and delicious food!!! That's the way I can describe our diner at Markt XI, everything is perfect here. A very nice interior that is cosy but you really have enough privacy, you're not packed together. Also nice is the open kitchen so you can see the chef working and preparing the food. About the food/wine I can be... More
