The food was very special and, clearly, researched. It was nice to try dishes which clearly inventive was put in. The staff was nice and attentive. The only drawback is that it took almost one hour from one dish to the next. Tip: 3 courses are definitely sufficient to be able to leave the restaurant without being overfull.

We had lunch in this restaurant. This place feels outdated. I don't know when the last renovation was done, but for this kind of restaurants, it was far too long ago. The restaurant was rather empty, service was slow, food was ok. Overall experience wasn't good.

Great location, superb service. All staff well informed about the culinary origins as well as the wine selection. We recommend to buy the wine pr glas suited to each tasty dish. Here you do not go wrong.... We enjoyed the evening with friends from abroad.... an excellent choice for a place to go!

Had occasion to sample the lunch-time offering on one of the warmest days of the year. This turned out the delightful as the table was outside with the spectacular view of the park. Lunch was light to match the weather, but each course was a festival of flavours with the lamb and raspberries being my favorite. The staff came with... More

This restaurant has quite a reputation and with my visit it lived up to my expectations. The cuisine is fine, I had some classic choices: coquille st Jacques and foie gras and that were good options. We ate had diner in the so-called sun lounge, an extension from the original restaurant. My companion had swordfish which was an excellent option.... More

K.H. has been around for a long time, always as an asset of Eindhoven´s culinary world. Living abroad, this was my first test in years of its performance and I was not to be disappointed. The kitchen has kept up with time in the sense that it has become lighter, more visually attractive or even frivolous (dangerous word!) Service is... More

Together with friends we had booked a set 3 course dinner here. A few things we do not like, although we were all 4 with different tastes, everybody had the dinner to their liking, chapeau! Before the entree we were served some small tasty dishes, as well as before the main course. Everything was beautifully presented and we loved all... More

We visit this restaurant several times a year for a nice family dinner and it is never a disappointment. De Karpendonkse Hoeve serves elegant and high quality dishes for a most moderate price. Their "2 course" menu (which is actually more like a 4 course menu taking into account the appetisers and amuses) goes for 40 Euros which is comparable... More
