“Extraordinary”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We ate at the chef's table in the kitchen and enjoyed a 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing. This was easily the best dinner we have ever had. The courses were creative and nicely varied. The hospitality of the chefs was overwhelming, especially Chef de Cuisine Abby. It's expensive, but if you can afford it, do it.

“Over priced and not worth it.”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

This was the second time that we tried the Marinus at Bernardus Lodge. This restaurant is so expensive and we can't figure out why. The food is very mediocre and the ambiance is just so so. Better to have dinner in the Pub down the hall. Not impressed.

“Elegant and delicious”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We had New Year's Eve dinner here, and it was well planned and prepared. There were three choices I each of six courses, all sounded yummy. The Wagyu beef is the best I've had. Service was not as polished as we have had there before, but still professional. The dining room is beautiful and the dishes, flat wear, and crystal are lovely.

“Fantastic dining experience”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

My wife and I ordered the chef's multi-course tasting menu which was excellent - right-sized portions, creative and delicious, served by friendly and accommodating staff. They allowed us to split a wine pairing, which greatly added to the dining experience.

“Beautiful presentation and outstanding cuisine”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

This is fine dining at it's best. Professional service without being pretentious. Some of the prettiest looking dishes we have ever seen. Interesting, seasonal ingredients and delicious preparations. Truly a special meal!
