A very nice place worth a visit

Recognized by Michelin as 'a très bonne table dans sa catégorie'. I can only confirm that. The dinner was nice and cosy. If you go for the menu then make sure you select the 5 course menu (instead of the 4 course) because the optional crab dish was the best thing we had in the evening. The wine... read more

A month ago I visited this restaurant with my boyfriend and mother. I made reservations for three, but when we arrived they only counted on a two persons reservation, however they quickly adjusted it for us three. The dinner was good, all the courses were really delicious. The staff was friendly apart from the lady of the house who was... More

Of the more than a 100 Michelin starred restaurants we have eaten at, only a few have really disappointed us. And only one disappointed tremendously: Kasteel Diependael. Food and service were really below acceptable. What a cold and unfriendly lady in charge! We had the feeling only the main course was done à la minute, and everything else was heated... More

We had lunch in this beautiful little castle. Very friendly owners and staff. The setting and the garden are wonderful. Couldn't eat on the terrace unfortunately due to bad weather. Appetizers and starter were ok but were to cold ( 5 minutes longer out of the fridge would have been nice). The veal, as a mains, was succulent! Desert very... More

I have known this place for many year, but haven't been there lately. With friends from abroad I went back there last month and we have no regrets! Still very good food, nice setting and friendly/professional staff. Can surely be recommended!

We spent New Years eve at Kasteel Diependael, they served a special menu including wines and champagne. The setting is very cosy, we did find it a little bit too full but the food was fantastic, the staff very correct. They only thing we found a little odd was that when making the reservation in oktober we had to make... More

At only a few kilometers from my home town Mechelen, I discovered this lovely place thanks to a Bongo coupon. My wife and I were enchanted right from the beginning. This 'kasteel' is in fact an 18th century hunting pavillion with a modern glass pavillion extension where we found our place. The rest of the dinner guests were sitting outside... More

I choose for the symphony menu and i can say this was definitely a pleasure of many tastes. 3 amuses and five courses full of discovery. The menu let my tongue raste and sing with pleasure and full symphony. You get really quality... More

I ate lunch here with my wife and her godmother. We last ate here in 2007 for a Sunday lunch and whilst it was nice we weren't wildly enthusiastic, this time it was much better. As everyone has said, it's a beautiful restaurant, very nicely decorated. We took the 50euro lunch menu with wine - the wine was an extra... More
