Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We mentioned that my wife is allergic to nuts while making the reservation, upon arrival to the restaurant and again while placing the order. However, we still double checked with the server whether is it safe to consume when he placed it on the table,...and he said he will double check with the kitchen, came back and explained there are no nuts. After having a bite, she felt the reaction right away and the manager came to check upon her. She confirmed that the food has pistachio nuts in it. It wasn’t a case of traces of nuts but the food containing nuts itself and the manager knew this. The reaction started building up giving bad symptoms on her body and skin and she was panicking. The manager apologised and offered doctor service if necessary mentioning “it will cost €200 charge”. I also had to pay (starters with discount) for what we consumed while my wife was feeling ill, we barely even touched the food cause the first bite of the starter which was the dish with nuts. I had to revise the bill too, as they charged for the food & beverages which we didn’t consume and also having the dish in the bill which made her sick. The manager organised a taxi to nearest hospital. However, there was no follow up calls made to check on us how we are. It was really a very lethargic and careless service which we experienced in such a grand property which focused more in revenue but not guests experience and safety. I strongly won’t suggest this place for those who have dietary concerns.More

A lovely restaurant and great staff BUT was not overly impressed with the food...not a lot more to say as whilst this was a pricey meal I had far better in Haarlem and Amsterdam.

Celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary. Very friendly welcome and attentive service. Great very tasty delicate lunch in the garden. Only a pity there is no zero alcohol wine.

You know you are in for a fine-dining experience, the second you step into the Grand Hotel courtyard. The exceptional service begins before you get to the restaurant and is evident throughout the whole meal. It is no wonder they get a Michelin mention. The...ambience is equally charming. You are never far from the garden unless of course you are in it. I have had the classic white asparagus and ham dish many times. Here, they do it the best. The veal with truffle sauce is amazing. Enjoy fine dining in a wonderful setting and with great service.More

The Oriole restaurant at our hotel was a gift to have so close. We did a late lunch and ordered the three course Chef’s tasting menu. All dishes were excellent! Our favorite was the Sea Bream catch of the day!! If you like vodka, try...the Ocimum handmade cocktail. It was delicious! All of the staff are very attentive, knowledgeable and gracious.
