“Great food, very friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

This is the place where we had our wedding. The food back then was amazing and the staff was so very helpful. This year was our 5th anniversary and we decided to spend it again at Chalet Brakkestein (aka Beau). This place is quite expensive but it is money very well spent. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is classy.

“Amazing Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Great restaurant, amazing atmosphere, the room we sat in was like a winter-wonder-landscape, everything was white. Everything. I've never seen something like that.
The food is just great as well. Fresh ingredients, wonderful make-up and great flavors. Quite expensive, but worth every cent.

“Good location, service is bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

The location in a park is nice, the interior has a nice atmosphere and the food varies from average to very good.
The fact which spoils it all is the bad service and the arrogance of the management. Example: we spent the evening eating dinner in the garden on a summer's evening, but wanted to drink our coffees inside because it was getting chilly. We were told that this was not possible, as they already were setting the tables up for the next day... Mind you, the bill for 2 people was over EUR 350! This kind of behavior we experienced multiple times so we gave up, we won't come back.
