Wonderful food, the stuff does not rush you. Lovely selection of wines. Next to the restaurants is a Bistro which is also wonderful.

Beautiful restaurant and ground. We ate outside and enjoyed some wine, coffee, and dessert. It was very scenic. Nice surrounding gardens filled with sculptures.

Good food and well matched wines. I liked the service as well in a fantastic surrounding. The only downside is that menu is pretty standard with no surprises. Im not sure if it was worth the money at the end.

After our stay at this lovely resort, we decided to have dinner before heading off. The restaurant looks stunningly beautiful, the sense of detail in decoration and furniture makes it easy to visualise it back in the days as a hunting château. The staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Our waiter Jurgen gave some excellent recommendations for various wines.... More

stingy and cheap food. Meager breakfast buffet as they seem to want to charge €36 but give you very little. Made me think they were cheap and felt very short changed

We spent an excellent evening at this beautifully located Château. Because of Restaurant Week, we had a special 3-course menu for € 30 which is great value, but of course you end up relatively expensive because of wines and coffee. However, it was a treat; excellent service, nice ambiance and great French cuisine. The youngsters in our group were still... More

Worth a visit just for the setting , but the food is just average. The staff is nice and we had a nice time - I wouldnt rush back unless I stayed in the hotel.

I have to admit that there are not many places around like this amazing restaurant in this beautiful environment. Really innovative cuisine. Exceptional staff and wine list. I could even find a great wine nearly impossible to find elsewhere: Vergelegen Cabernet merlot from South Africa. My only deception was the small portion of sweetbread. I had expected more from this... More

We have arrived late in the evening not having any reservation before. In the restaurant they couldn't find a table for us but they found it in the bistro. All guys working there are just excellent. They are fast, helpful and very much service oriented. We have had very a good dinner and we're pleased by the atmosphere and ambiance... More

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.
