Allure in the tiny hamlet of Hoofdplaat

This part of Zeeland, Zeeuws-Vlaanderen – the region of the villlage of Hoofdplaat – has a Belgian feel to it. The region is famed for its hospitality and tasty food and drink, and De Kromme Watergang is no exception.

This restaurant with its unique rooms is located just behind the Schelde dikes. Owners Edwin and Blanche Vinke run an internationally acclaimed restaurant offering a taste of Zeeland. The Chef sources only the best local produce. Freshly caught fish comes in daily from Breskens.

The restaurant’s huge kitchen garden, De Zilte Hof, is the other important source of ingredients. Three of the four suites are located in a new condo complex in Breskens harbour. Behind the dunes of Breskens you will find beautiful beaches overlooking the Westerschelde. The Belgian seaside resort of Knokke is well within reach.

Taste of Zeeland

Charming hostess


Chef Edwin Vinke, Gault&Millau chef of the year, welcomes you in his outstanding restaurant. He only uses the best ingredients from the finest purveyors, such as fresh fish and shellfish straight from Breskens Harbour and vegetables from local gardens. Freshly caught seafood features high on the menu, but meat lovers will also be pleasantly surprised. The tastfully decorated restaurant is in a relaxing colour scheme of black and white with red highlights.
