The dinner was arranged via an action-mail through a general organisation (HEERLIJK), which gives the opportunity to have a try-out at a reasonable price. The service was excellent. Very friendly personal who take the time to explain. The food was nicely served and even beheld some lovely amuse gueule and a tasting surprises at desert (with pineapple, curry and pepper)....

Visited this restaurant whilst on business. We got offered a "secret" menu by the chef. It consisted of 5 courses of which one was a dessert. There was also a different glass of wine per course. The food was amazing. It's probably the best food I've ever tasted. I would love to return to this restaurant.

All over 70's in a group of ten. The service here is excellent, attentive and discreet. Well appointed restaurant with a pleasant ambience. The dinner was sublime! One word says it all. Highly recommended.

Stayed over at Vangaelen for two nights, a gift we got, gastronomic weekend. The hotel rooms are comfortable but a bit gloomy, could use lighter furniture I guess. But still OK, more so because the main issue are the meals. We enjoyed a 'mercato' menu (3 courses) the evening we arrived and a chef's menu (4 courses) the night after.... More

Dinner with a dutch colleague "mondays". restaurant was full ... but not crowded or loud. Menues, selections, recommendations very well. Food itself "everything to our liking" ... port, wine and desert combi - nothing missing.

Very nice restaurant in a little gem of a village in the south east of the Netherlands. Located opposite of a, still inhabited, castle. Food is great, service is impeccable and very friendly, interior with a fantastic atmosphere. We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and had a memorable evening. Will definitely come back here !

My wife and I lived in Heeze fifteen years ago while I was on sabbatical, and we frequently went to Vangalen for dinner. At the time, they offered Italian-influenced fare, had excellent pasta dishes, featured wines that were difficult to find at any shop, and were very reasonably priced for what you got. Fifteen years later, little has changed. The... More

Did call the restaurant first if they did asparagus, which was a confirmative. Not on the menu when we arrived but served when we ordered it. Classic preparation, perfect portion size, superb butter sauce. Surprising Tea service :-) Classic dish in a classic restaurant, did not feel Italian which I was happy about.

Thank Jan R
