Solskin is right on the boulevard, with a beautiful view over the sea and the beach.
It has a sunny terrace in the front, with windscreens and heaters, so that even in the winter it's very enjoyable to sit there on a sunny day.
Favorite Dish: I've eaten there various times, both for lunch and for dinner.
Last time was during our VT meeting in Middelburg. I had beef carpaccio (starter) and 'Zeeuws Vispannetje' (main). The main course came with various vegetables, rice, baked potatoes and fries. It was an excellent meal.
It's on the boulevard and they have a large terrace in front, where it's nice to sit on a sunny day - also in the winter thanks to the wind screens.
Favorite Dish: Salads, baguettes, omelettes, etc. for lunch.
Wines by the glass (on the summer terrace).
An extensive menu card & wine list for dinner.
Guests are also welcome for a cup of coffee or a resfreshment the whole day long.
This restaurant won "De Zilveren Champignon" in 2003. This is a prestigious contest in which only the best restaurants compete.

Restaurant De Gevangentoren opened in summer 2006, just when I happened to be in town. I visited this exclusive restaurant with a French/Dutch kitchen in its second opening week. Due to a rare heatwave the restaurant was loaded ever since it opened. The old round city gate tower, the only remainder of the old city wall is restored in its beauty and extended with a round terrace with a glass wall with great view on the nearby ship traffic on the Schelde river.
The guests mainly seems to be upper class and our bunch was a little out-of-tune.
The owner let us know he gladly would toss me into the sea and surprisingly enough some friends spontaneously came up with some 10 Euro notes if he would do so. Unnecessary to say we had a great time.
The restaurant was so new, there were no businesscards available.
Business hours: From noon till late at night.
Favorite Dish: I started with salmon and had "Ossehaas" (South American beef) for the main course.
Desert was some raspberries and the most delicious icecream I ever had.

Pizza Service is a place to get a crusty fresh pizza; nothing more, nothing less.
A drink with your pizza is possible, but forget a starter or a dessert.
From the first floor you have a good view at the Bellamy park and all the bars around it.
The furniture survived a lot of guest, nothing fancy.
If you like, you can select your own pizza toppings.
Favorite Dish: Pizza Quattro Stagioni.
Rio Grande is a bit of everything. The decorations at the walls originate from many Middle- and South-American countries.
The dishes on the menu's are coming from many countries too and so, there's always something you will like.
Favorite Dish: Just had grilled chicken with a jacket-potataoe; very tasteful.
BTW The Spare Ribs are each as much as you can (made it up to 3 times)

The Belgische Loodsensociëteit is a Hotel Restaurant at one of the oldest location at the Boulevard. The sea pilot center is next door and this building houses a lot of local maritime history.

Favorite Dish: Tong (fish) baked in real butter from the monthly menu.
Kreta Palas was called Delphi in the past.
Well, Greek restaurants come and go (or change owners0 at Vlissingen.
Kreta Palas has not the appearance of nearby poseidon, but I found the food at Kreta much better and more original Greek.
Favorite Dish: Dolmadakia
Toon's Kiosk and Snackbar is strategically located at the newest part of the boulevard.
It's a combination of a souvenir etc shop and a Dutch snackbar.
I found the food quality just outside the red figures (seems to be the Vlissingen average by the way).
There are some first row screened seats, great for people and ships wathching, so no complaints about fast food!
Favorite Dish: Haven't discovered that one yet.
