Dining Cruise on the West End Lakes

Dine and Sail on the West End Lakes

If you say you request an à la carte dinner reservation for a seat on a boat, you will probably be met with a confused response – unless you are speaking with the staff at Rederij Belle. Come aboard your own private saloon boat and sail the West End Lakes while enjoying a meal prepared to perfection. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind experience!

A One-of-a-Kind Dining Experience

A floating restaurant may sound a bit strange. But, while out of the ordinary, we ensure you that a dining cruise on the West End Lakes is one of the best ways you could possibly enjoy a meal. The atmosphere is stunning, the service is top-notch and the dishes are always prepared to perfection. For this unique à la carte package you will choose your dishes from the menu whilst sailing. Once you make your selections, your order is placed with one of Rederij Belle’s partner restaurants or the establishment of your choice. When the dishes are plated, the captain docks briefly so the staff can deliver the complete meal, straight from the kitchen to your onboard table.

The Standard Programme or Something Customised?

The Dining Cruise on the West End Lakes package has a standard programme, which is outlined below. As with all Rederij Belle packages, this can be customised to fit you and your group.

  • 18:00
    You and your guests are welcomed aboard with a drink. After a short introduction by the captain, you will set sail on the West End Lakes.
  • 18:20
    As you enjoy your cruise, the cabin crew will take your orders for an appetiser, main course and dessert and then place your order. As soon as the dishes are ready, the captain will dock so they can be delivered to the vessel.
  • 21:00
    Your cruise comes to an end as you return to your departure location.
