A reflection of Zeeland

Everything we do is entirely inspired by what we see outside. Restaurant Meliefste is a reflection of nature. From the interior to the plate. We take you on a journey through the beauty that Zeeland has to offer. It starts with the fish from the Veerse Meer in front of our door, then gradually moves to the Oosterschelde and from there to the North Sea and the mainland.

Fisherman Marcel

My main inspiration is my neighbour Marcel, our fisherman. His fishing boat is 15 meters from our front door. In principle, he fishes for eel, but he teaches us so much more about the other fish species, shellfish, and crustaceans he encounters. So, besides eel, we often have beautiful bycatch such as shore crabs on the menu. Marcel is not a fish market; it’s a surprise every day what the environment brings us. That keeps the menu and our work varied and exciting.

Old cheese with piccalilly

From our opening in 2015, we started with the snack of old cheese and piccalilly. In terms of appearance, it evolves every time, but the taste remains the same. Those are flavours that remind me of the past. As a young child, I always ate old cheese with piccalilly on my sandwich. At the moment, we serve it in the form of a fish. It’s so delicious. If you eat one, you immediately feel the urge for more and crave the next course. Exactly what we want!
