Outstanding

This may have well been the best meal we have had in any restaurant. The menu was interesting. The presentation was artistic. The food was superb. Our waiter, Martyn, was excellent. This restaurant is deserving of a Michelin star.

De Kersentuin is a great restaurant and we were happy to eat there each evening of our stay. There was no reason to go anywhere else.

I usually hate to eat at hotel restuarants as the food is usually just average at best. The Bilderberg Garden Hotel is the exception to the rule. This is a must visit restaurant. If you stay at the hotel either reserve before you get to Amsterdam or beg for a table at check-in. This is a Michelin rated restaurant and... More

I've had a few trainings now in the Bilderberg hotel, where the Kersentuin is located. Both times I went there and had lunch I didn't like the selection of sandwiches they had available and was very hungry for the remaining of the day. The soup they served was quite nice though. Be aware, that my experience is based on the... More

Our seating was perfect, following my note from the email reservation for quite romantic spot for two. Amuse & appetizers served before and after the first course are very... More

Last year we dined at this restaurant and vowed to return. This year we stayed for 3 nights at the hotel and dined again at the restaurant. Once again the food was superb, service was excellent and good value for money. We chose off the 2 set price menus which also offer accompanying wines for each course. Just perfect, we... More

The first dish had seared tuna that was spoiled I eat seared tuna often and this was simply bad tuna. The second course was a beautiful tail portion of some white fish but it was so... More

We liked very much the Royal Fish, The restaurant is right at the hotel we were staying. Wines are expensive, They serve small appetizers before and after the meal that were very good. We definetely would return there even being on another hotel.
