We visited this bustling little restaurant on the last day of our holiday with family friends. There were 11 of us and the staff were extremely helpful in accommodating our large group when we hadn’t made a reservation. The food, drink and atmosphere are fabulous and I couldn’t recommend the Diana restaurant enough. Given the owners were going on vacation the next day the menu was still good and the food quality was both tremendous and plentiful. We hope to holiday in the area soon and without question we will be returning. Thank you so much to the staff for a fantastic finale to our vacation!

Herberg 't Rustpunt

Reviewed By Ceuppens K

Op een zonnige avond, rustig aan het water met een lekker drankje op het terras. Het is een uitgebreide kaart maar ik had trek in mosselen en mijn man had goesting in een forel. De mosselen natuur waren heerlijk en de forel was ook uitstekend. Het was een gezellige avond en wij hebben genoten van het lekkere eten.

Lommel Broek

Reviewed By 75tui

Breakfast was from 8am to 10am and on our first morning there we asked for a 730am breakfast as we were there to compete in a sporting event and they reluctantly agreed. We asked for the same on the second day and they point blankly refused. She I went down at 745am the next morning there were a number of guests just finishing their breakfast. The lady serving the breakfast on the two mornings was not only abrupt but rude. We had dinner there on both nights and the food was ok but the service was dreadful. The rooms were clean and spacious but absolutely no sound proofing so if you are a light sleeper this is not the hotel for you. Will definitely not be returning here again.There was a breakfast ready for you (6 persons) on Sunday morning at 7.30 am, just the same what you asked on Saturday morning. It was a staff member who said that is was not possible for an early breakfast. She works at our place just for a few weeks.We are sorry for the troubles.

Verzorgde zaak ,goede bediening en de gerechten zijn op brasserie niveau.Ik had voor de lamsfilet met mosterdsaus gekozenFilet was mals en juist gebakken,de saus was niet slecht maar ze neigde meer naar een blackwell saus.De erbij geserveerde groenten mochten iets meer op smaak gebracht worden.Al bij al een degelijke brasserie keuken.

New sharing concept in the Kempen in Mol. Foodbar Mol is a place to come home and enjoy your table company, conviviality and a refined menu. The restaurant offers a sharing concept in which connection and conviviality are central. Shared dining has never been so cosy and tasty. The sharing plates are a connecting concept. You order different starters and main courses from the menu that are shared with your company. There is something for everyone. We chose both fish and meat dishes that were placed in the middle of the table. 'Scampi Foodbar' was the most delicious starter. The scampi were perfectly baked and the accompanying sauce based on garlic, parsley and tomatoes created a fresh and pure touch. Service is very polite. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Congratulations to the chef, because no matter how busy it is, everything always comes out of the kitchen as refined and quickly as possible. The staff tries to meet the customer's wishes. I recently visited the restaurant with a vegetarian friend who had a choice of different vegetarian and vegan dishes.Eye for detail. The eye wants something too. The interior is perfectly designed to the smallest detail. The combination of colours and materials creates a cosy atmosphere. Besides the beautiful interior, the dishes are served as real works of art. I strongly recommend Foodbar Mol. The restaurant offers a varied and delicious menu with on top of that a great service. The menu offers you several possibilities like finger food and bistronomic dishes, but the sharing plates are an experience apart. If you plan on frequenting this restaurant, you can never do wrong by choosing the sharing plates. Moreover, it's also great for people who can't choose and still want to dine in an original manner.

The Weselo is situated not far from the center of a small village Wezel belonging to the city of Mol. Surrounded by green it has a nice atmosphere. The menu is a very good value for money. Nice and partly original entrees (asparagus with tuna fish), excellent Irish steak and royal sorbet as desert !thank you for these nice words. untill next time

from a British perspective this would be a gastro-pub. Really excellent dishes from a varied menu. The chef came and talked to us too.
