Description
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.
