Absolute top. In all details. We had very high expectations, and they all came true. World class from the moment we entered till the moment we left. 3 star Michelin plus.

I visited the restaurant a couple of times. Food is very fine and high quality. The interior is missing something, too much distilled. We had the 5 course menu for two persons and payed 770€. I was very very much disappointed about the coffee.The coffee was only served with 6 very small Dutch doughnuts and a cake called Madeleine. Nothing... More

The cuisine here is creative and delicious, service is attentive and considerate, and the dress code is informal, making this a relaxed, pleasant and unpretentious setting for a truly great culinary experience. The fields surrounding this elegant fermette are sown with a unique display of cornflowers, poppies, daisies and other wild flowers. The lunch menu offers a (relatively) inexpensive option.

This is what I call a WOW restaurant because of the amazing service, fantastic wines and orgasmic food. Except to other people I had no problem to pay nearly 100€ for coffee and digestive (for 2 persons of course). First of all you don't have to go there if you want to save money, we can not compare the prices... More

The cooking at Hof van Cleve is simply amazing. It is very complex as far as technique and finesse goes. Every dish offers a number of pleasant flavors and combinations. Each serving is unique and offers a new range of flavors. Wine pairings are perfect. A dinner at Hof van Cleve is with every penny!

By far the best *** restaurant I have ever been to (about 10 times!). Atmosphere, staff, every single item, dish, ingredient are out of this world. Every plate is a work of art, every bite a trip to Nirvana.

We missed our initial lunch booking due to delays with the Eurotunnel however Mrs Goossens was very understanding when we called, and kindly agreed to change our booking to dinner instead for that evening. We received a very warm welcome and were immediately seated and received efficient and friendly service from an experienced and professional team. Every course was outstanding... More
