Description: Three reception rooms in the living quarters of the aristocratic family that used to live in the Chateau now accommodate a top-quality a la carte restaurant. Each room is furnished in its own distinctive manner, and in full harmony with the original painted walls and ceilings. The comprehensive menu is oriented towards French cuisine – and our renowned wines form perfect complement to the culinary art of our chef Otto Nijenhuis and his kitchen staff. On sunny days the splendid patio is particularly appealing to diners. Six stylishly-furnished rooms offer groups from 5 to 300 guests marvellous surroundings for festive and business gatherings.

This chateau is very interesting and in the most beautiful setting. Take a walk in the surrounding or park, visit the church an have a wonderful lunch in the garden.

“Formal but exquisite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

The old-world decor, spotless linen, classical music and slightly formal staff may make you feel uncomfortable at first, but as soon as the first dish hits the table, you know you have come to one of the very rare places where perfection in cuisine is the norm. This is a temple for the real foodie, simply because of the brilliant, exquisite, creative and tasteful cooking. The love of good food and passion for perfection creates an experience second to none. The wine suggestions complement the dishes perfectly. If you have a food fetish, this is the place to be!

“Sint Gerlach: ambiance, service, wine and food are great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

Although my wife and I went to this restaurant on numerous occasions we never knew it was called Les Trois Corbeaux. We always refer to it as Restaurant Sint Gerlach.

We really feel at home here. The interior of this Chateau is very nice. Immediately after entering the restaurant you feel submerged in comfortable luxury.

The service from the begining to the end is flawless. Worth mentioning is the the professionalism and friendliness of Maitre d'Hotel Romy Pieters and Sommelier Bart Smulders. Let Romy guide you through the menu. Let Bart advise you on the wine and whether you order bottles or drink wine by the glass, his recomandations are always spot on.

The cuisine of chef Nijhuis is original, of high quality and a feast for eyes and palate.

Every time we had dinner at Sint Gerlach we really felt completely satisfied. Writing this review makes me want to order a babysitter an reserve a table at Sint Gerlach right away.
