- Where the voyage of discovery begins -


Michelin star
The restaurant 'De Vrienden van Jacob' was awarded a Michelin star in 2005 and is situated in the estate's former summer living room and the greenhouse. Adjacent to the greenhouse there is a large terrace, which offers a clear view of the pond and the symmetric, English-style landscaped, gardens that are pleasant to walk around. In our restaurant you can enjoy an pleasant ambiance where Chef Alain Alders and his team create wonderful French/ Mediterranean and seasonal dishes. Your taste buds will be spoilt, guaranteed! Our maître sommelier Dennis Smith serves a range of wine arrangements and would be happy to advise you on a selection of excellent wines to accompany your meal.

Brasserie DenK
The interior of our Brasserie DenK makes you feel at ease right away. The warm colours, the roomy armchairs with soft cushions and the relaxed atmosphere are - in addition to the cuisine - the perfect ingredients for a delicious evening meal. Brasserie DenK mainly serves regional and seasonal dishes. In the open kitchen you can see for yourself how the freshest products are prepared and transformed into delightful brasserie dishes. DenK always servers classic dishes with a modern twist and pure taste.

During the summer months, DenK is situated in the garden. This is a trendy place where you can enjoy the view and the relaxed atmosphere, gourmet cuisine and - if you're lucky - the sun. This estate's garden, which is adjoined to the Zuid-Kennemerland National Park, is in fact transformed into a hip and trendy lounge. In the ultra-modern outdoor kitchen our chefs will surprise you with summer brasserie dishes.

Before or just after dinner, the Lounge bar DenK is a very nice place to be. The sophisticated bar staff make cocktails and serve champagne, premium spirits and special wines which taste even better than anywhere else in the world.
