Since we are living close to the Hof van Cleve, we regularly go there for special occasions. For me, this is the top of gastronomy. Everything is made to perfection. Impeccable and very friendly service. Of course the price is high, but money well spent. You can choose between the menu and à la carte. I would recommend the grilled... More

Absolute top. In all details. We had very high expectations, and they all came true. World class from the moment we entered till the moment we left. 3 star Michelin plus.

I visited the restaurant a couple of times. Food is very fine and high quality. The interior is missing something, too much distilled. We had the 5 course menu for two persons and payed 770€. I was very very much disappointed about the coffee.The coffee was only served with 6 very small Dutch doughnuts and a cake called Madeleine. Nothing... More

The cuisine here is creative and delicious, service is attentive and considerate, and the dress code is informal, making this a relaxed, pleasant and unpretentious setting for a truly great culinary experience. The fields surrounding this elegant fermette are sown with a unique display of cornflowers, poppies, daisies and other wild flowers. The lunch menu offers a (relatively) inexpensive option.

This is what I call a WOW restaurant because of the amazing service, fantastic wines and orgasmic food. Except to other people I had no problem to pay nearly 100€ for coffee and digestive (for 2 persons of course). First of all you don't have to go there if you want to save money, we can not compare the prices... More

The cooking at Hof van Cleve is simply amazing. It is very complex as far as technique and finesse goes. Every dish offers a number of pleasant flavors and combinations. Each serving is unique and offers a new range of flavors. Wine pairings are perfect. A dinner at Hof van Cleve is with every penny!

By far the best *** restaurant I have ever been to (about 10 times!). Atmosphere, staff, every single item, dish, ingredient are out of this world. Every plate is a work of art, every bite a trip to Nirvana.
