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

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

When dining at this restaurant, you will be amazed by the quality of the food as well of the quality of the wine. Chef van Doorn introduced us to some new combinations of tastes. The ambiance in this restaurant gives you the idea that you are dining in a very old and classy place. The price quality ratio is extremely... More

Located outside Utrecht, this elegant restaurant is housed on the lower floor of a refurbished 17th century mansion/palace, surrounded by a moat and gardens. We chose the "surprise menu" which can be 4-6 courses. The 4 course was 65 Euros, which includes all charges, no tip expected. Two excellent, finely presented amuse bouche, preceded our first course of scallop along... More
