“Very good lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

We enjoyed a lunch at DenK – a goat cheese salad and a steak tartare – sitting upstairs in the hotel hall instead of the basement. The food was very good, definitely worth a visit. We didn't like the downstairs interior too much, but the terrace looks amazing (it was a rainy day unfortunately) and it was super to eat in the hotel hall. Recommended!

“Very nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Had a company dinner and enjoyed the food very much. The service was okay, I wouldn't say outstanding by any means. I think that most of the staff must be trainees. I enjoyed my evening and look forward to going again for a non-company related meal!

“good food, great wines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Had lunch and dinner at Denk.
The locations is great, however you will be in the 'basement' when it is not summertime. The restaurant interior is not spectacular, nice surroundings but nothing special and no outside view.

However Denk is worth a visit.

Staff is fine, the sommelier knows his stuff and the wines are really good!
Do have a different wine with every course of your meal, it is a shame to just order a bottle.
Food varies by season, not a huge amount of choice but plenty enough and a creative variety. It was difficult to decide what to eat or just to let the chef decide.

Food is well balanced and not topped off with fries like in a lot of places. If you are staying at the hotel (and you must it is a lovely place but do upgrade to a room in the older building) then Denk is a great place to enjoy a meal.

In the summertime food is served in the lovely garden and the view with the big pond and ancient trees is very very Dutch and enjoyable

“Imaginative food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The Brasserie Denk is in the remodeled cellar of a country hotel in Santpoort and was a very pleasant surprise. On nice days there is an outdoor patio with lovely views. The food was creative, fresh, beautifully presented and very reasonably priced for the quality of the meal. I was traveling solo on business and received excellent service (i.e. was NOT rushed or ignored; alas, this is not always the case). I ordered a chef's seafood menu with three set courses and all three items were interesting combinations of flavors and/or textures.
