We stayed at this beautiful woodland castle couple of weeks ago - from a friday to saturday - with a gourmet package. This included a room in the detached servants building as well as a 4-course "Gourmet" dinner.
The setting is absolutely stunning - no question about it. My only complaint - but this is a major one I am afraid - is about the food served at the dinner. Hearing about this supposedly famous kitchen - we had been building up an appetite during the day - and expecting to get a somewhat substantial meal presented at dinner. This turned out to be an absoute joke! The portions were positively the smallest I have ever witnessed even in a gourmet restaurant. As an example - the first course was a delicious piece of smoked salmon. Unfortunately the piece of salmon would fit on a small teaspoon. So thinking a side of salmon probably takes the kitchen a couple of days to go through - serving the entire restaurant this first course. We were thinking that portions would become more substantial once we got closer to the main courses - but sadly not! To make things even worse - it often took 45 minutes before the next course would be served. When we left the table both my spouse and I had built up a significant hunger, and we simply couldnt enjoy the rest of the evening because of this.
Even at breakfast - no buffet was served - but rather individual piedestals brought to the tables - offering cold cuts of very mediocre supermarket meats, but to be fair also homemade jams and homebaked bread.
I am extremely dissapointed with this place - only because of the lack of substantial portions. Would have loved to see an average size American restaurant guest being served such small portions. We will most likely never go to this place again - only because of a detail which could easily be fixed. And if we do - we will definatley make sure to pass Macdonalds on the way...
