Beau is not the type of restaurant you visit every day. Set in an old manor with decor to match you can enjoy an evening of fine dining without feeling too pretentious. The staff clearly enjoy what they are doing and you can sense that throughout your experience. The food was decent with some courses better than others but I... More

I had organized reception followed with dinner. Everything was perfectly tasty and very well organized. I am a person that do not go to much to restaurants in the place where I live in, but I am sure I will treat my self with the occasional dinner/lunch here. It is perfect for organizing events like birthdays, weddings or promotions, and... More

The place is simply amazing. We had dinner in the veranda because it was raining, but still it was beautiful. Service was a little slow but in line with Dutch standards. Food was great: meat is fresh and very well cooked and so the rest of the dishes. Overall a very good impression, except that maybe is far too expensive... More

The place is beautiful. I was curious to find out how the restaurant is, after the name change. The menu is ambitious. We just went there with a few members of our club to have a meeting, a drink and a small bite to eat. That was not a problem. We had a table near to the bar, which was... More

The restaurant, in the past Chalet Brakkestein, is a beautiful villa in a nice park. Our expectations were high, new name, another menu .... I must say I expected more. The food was from a good quality but ....

This is the place where we had our wedding. The food back then was amazing and the staff was so very helpful. This year was our 5th anniversary and we decided to spend it again at Chalet Brakkestein (aka Beau). This place is quite expensive but it is money very well spent. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is... More

Great restaurant, amazing atmosphere, the room we sat in was like a winter-wonder-landscape, everything was white. Everything. I've never seen something like that. The food is just great as well. Fresh ingredients, wonderful make-up and great flavors. Quite expensive, but worth every cent.

The location in a park is nice, the interior has a nice atmosphere and the food varies from average to very good. The fact which spoils it all is the bad service and the arrogance of the management. Example: we spent the evening eating dinner in the garden on a summer's evening, but wanted to drink our coffees inside because... More
