Beautiful restaurant, situated in the former kitchen of the Parc Broekhuizen mansion (gave me the Upstairs/Downstairs vibe). The food is very special, the staff is friendly and down to earth. No posh, formal and distant atmosphere here. Thank god!

We booked the terrace room and it was great, lovely view, very nice interior and we enjoyed a very nice dinner in the Voltaire restaurant. Good food, very good service. Breakfast was the least favorite part, a bit complicated with table service, not much choice...if you didn’t like bread and the one type of jam. We asked for espresso but got a regular coffee, clearly less experienced staff in the morning than at night. Eggs were a la carte dishes so make sure you are not in a hurry for it.More

“A culinary destination surrounded by nature with an inspiring balance between history and modern design” is the way Parc Broekhuizen is described on their own website. We cannot disagree. The nature you see when you drive up to Parc Broekhuizen is very imposing, as is...the view of the old property you get when you’re making your entrance through the steel gate to the actual driveway. It feels like a fairytale! The history of the iconic Parc Broekhuizen, which has been recognized as a national monument in the meantime, goes centuries back to the 15th century. Since 2012, the building has been developed into the state it is today. In 2018, the restaurant of Parc Broekhuizen, called restaurant Voltaire, gained its first Michelin star. Here, you can find out why there is a balance between history and modern design. Looking around the restaurant, you can still find the authentic forms and elements of the property, combined with a modern interior at the same time. White marble tables, nice chairs and pink flamingo’s – that’s the way we like it. The chef welcomes us with several amuses with herbs from Voltaire’s garden to go with our glass of Moët Grand Vintage from 2012. The bites are fresh and original, lovely. Although it’s hard to choose between such delicious amuses, our favorites are the crips of herbs and anchovies and tuna with cucumber and Mizo. After our aperitief and amuses, the six course menu can start. The fantastic kick-off is formed by trout, prepared in three different ways: pickled, smoked and steamed on 42 degrees. Combined with the seaweed juice, beurre noisette and rettich, this course truly is a beautiful and varied starter. Red mullet is the main ingredient of our second starter dish, together with carrot, local sea buckthorn and a nice foam of shellfish. The little yellow cut out flowers provide a great presentation. Our third white fish from the evening is plaice, surrounded by parsnip, sesame and a to the point fish juice based on a classical beurre blanc. With it, a Reto wine from the Albilla grape – we don’t see them that much! – is served. Nice round flavors with a spicy crisp. An excellent match with this course. Time for some meat. Anjou pigeon, to be exact. With regard to this head course, we really like the addition of cream of smoked beetroot. It feels like an autumn dish, but it is still managed to keep very fresh and light. Two desserts are always better than one. Our first dessert is one of apricot, kumquat and rose-hips served together with a fine Ackermann Auslese with an frivolous and uplifting character. The second is the healthy one. We see raspberry, we see kalamansi and we see… sorrel and celery. Lots of green when looking at this dessert! It however feels as a perfect dessert and we couldn’t be more satisfied to have this dish as the grand finale of our dining experience. We are invited by the chef to take our coffee – yes, Irish coffee, we don’t have to drive ok – and friandises outside, where we can enjoy the wonderful silence and fresh air of the forest. What a unique place. Parc Broekhuizen and restaurant Voltaire is imposing at all levels. Lots of attention is given to every single detail: from the perfect elegant interior to the creatively prepared and presented dishes. If we may add something to their own quote: “A culinary destination surrounded by nature with an inspiring balance between history and modern design, which you would like to visit over and over and over again”.More

Beautiful setting eating on the terrace overlooking the lake on a summers evening. We both had the Chefs menu of 5 courses. My wife substituted two of the courses and was not disappointed by the vegetarian substitutes. Tuna tartare excellent, amuses superb, pigeon my stand...out dish and fantastic strawberry desert. It is the sauces, foams and gels that star and enliven the dishes. The service is attentive and the sommelier and waiters are friendly and engaging. I will return.More

The location was closed without notice. We were already on the venue sitting next to other guests. We could not even order any drinks after a long walk from the parking lot. The waitress told us that we should call next time in advance. There...was no sign they were closing for any reason during normal opening hours. it seemed to me the staff was just overheated during this very hot day and just took the rest of the day off. Next to this the seats outside weren't very clean either.More

We had a beautiful 6 course diner with wine arrangement. The service was excellent and every wine was presented with story of its origin and taste. The courses were served very nicely made and with interesting composition.

After a trip to Amsterdam, we looked for a place surrounded by nature, goal: Relax!We have been pointed out the 'talk of the region', apparently a 'must go' for foodies. Indeed, we found amazing dishes with Asian influences, great wine list with surprising bottles. Especially...the large selection on natural wine. Friendly crew overall, personal and down to earth, rare kind nowadays. Promising place that we are pretty sure we will hear about once back abroad! Can't wait to return. Danke vielmals!!!More
