I have never gone back and re-reviewed a restaurant. And I rarely give a restaurant five stars but this place deserves both. My friend and I recently dined for a second time at Karpendonkse Hoeve; we were there to celebrate his birthday. We opted for a 4-course menu with wine pairings. The food is not what makes me give this... More

Everything mostly correct, as one would expect from a restaurant that has been operating at this level for many years: pleasant surroundings, food on par and beautifully prepared as well as presented (the duck and the salmon were like butter, the brioche bread like a cloud. risotto "bitterballen" dainty, smooth and creamy), though no real flavour highs (could not taste...

Yes, the food is excellent, the view is great, the terrace is wonderful, the sommelier recommends uncommon, yet extraordinary wines. But the best part of a visit to this restaurant: you don't go to a restaurant. From the beginning to the end of the visit, we were very welcome guest visiting the home of a perfect host.

To be honest, it wasn't quite how we remembered it. Our expectations weren't really met. The food was okay, but can't say out of this world. Same goes for the service, it was friendly but not spot-on.

We have been to this restaurant a couple of years ago, and now again last week. We had the 6 course dinner and opted for the various house wines. Everything was very tasteful. When my husband left one of the fish courses on the plate because it was not so to his taste, he received half a small lobster instead... More

My boyfriend and I recently dined at Karpendonske Hoeve during a visit to Eindhoven. What a lovely restaurant. It's warm and welcoming - despite the formality that its Michelin Star might suggest. The food was very nicely prepared - although, save one or two flavors, nothing that blew our minds. What really stood out about this place was the service;... More

De Karpendonkse Hoeve is, in my opinion, the very best restaurant in Eindhoven. For food, wine and service it surpasses any other top restaurant in the area. And is far better value for money than its over-priced peers. We go there regularly but always and without fail on my wife's birthday. It's her favourite restaurant as well. We are never... More

We knew this restaurant from two earlier visits (2004 dinner and 2009 lunch) and again had high expectations. We had a 9-course ‘tasting’ menu (proeverij). The pace of the courses was fine, the explanation of the courses was professional and the staff was friendly and pleasant. The fact that my messmate asked for fish-alternatives was no problem at all and... More

It was a warm and very sunny day, so we could enjoyed the lunch to which we were invited for on the terrace. The restaurant is surrounded by a nice and quite public parc, even when you see people passing by you still can enjoy your meal in piece. A disadvantage of sitting outside are the flying bugs, in this... More
