We had lunch here in September 2016. It is a beautiful location although it was a little tricky to find as it wasn't that well signposted. We had the surprise 3 course lunch option. Every course was beautifully presented, with exceptional flavours. The matching wines were really well chosen too. Highly recommend.

Lunch on the terrace with impeccable service. Wish we would have had time to stay to have cheese before desert. Next time!

lunch menu, choice to be explained upfront, or to be surprised. great service as expected in michelinstar restaurant, great and tasty food, wines chozen by waiter were excellent and no problem to ask for a bit extra. very quiet surounding, some may prefer a bit more lively atmosphere, but I enjoyed the calmness around me.

The last time we visited this lovely restaurant, situated in a big park and part of a beautiful rebuild castle, was almost a year ago already. My guests and I were curious to explore how the ambiance and quality should be nowadays. A beauttiful summer evening it was so that meant dining at the terrace on the edge of the... More

This restaurant is absolute top of the bill! We had our appetizers and drinks on their terrace looking at the beautifull sky. The gorgeous castle, together with the level of the food and wines that is served, the evening was a blast! A grand decor for a romantic lunch or dinner, but also suited for a lunch or dinner with...

Wow, what a hidden gem. I had never heard of this place but as I was looking for a good restaurant for a business lunch, somewhere in the center of the Netherlands I by accident came across this restaurant. A restaurant I certainly wouldn't have wanted to miss out on. Lovely lunch menu with fresh produce and accompanied by a... More

Wow this is so romantic. When you arrive it's just like a fairytale.. The service is great and they have good knowledge of the products and wines. The food is just amazing! Total package for a goodnight out. I definitely come back.

We visit Heemstede twice a year on special occasions. An excellent place to delight good friends. It is great to see how the consistent quality of the place matures. The chef has now extended the treat to craftily designed table wear, fitting beautifully in form and color to the great food. If only the maitre D' would fluently speak English,... More

Houten is a village with a number of great restaurants. The village centre is marked by a nice square where you can find Coco Pazzo and bij Teus. Both on a very high level. The best restaurant however is Kasteel Heemstede. They deserve the Michelin star on a beautiful location and superb gastronomy. Try the outside terrace, with views on... More
