    The service was impeccable. The maitre’d was very knowledge & charismatic. We enjoyed excellent bottles of wine with the dinner. We chose not to do the wine pairing. We did 5 courses which I think is the perfect amount! They gave some additional complimentary starters too. The grounds and estate are beautiful! Must see!

    We were here before, but in a weekend with a full house. Now it was on a Tuesday and it was quiet. It meant full attention of the staff (but not overbearing) - which was actually not unlike the first time. So: all nights would be good! The reception was warm in all respects, in front of the huge fireplace, where aperitifs were served, and the chef came to explain a number of magnificent amuses. By the time were led to our table, we already had a feeling of being very welcome and we were enjoying ourselves. The menu was set, at 5 courses (but with all amuses and pre-dessert it looked like much more). Excellent dishes with superb wines, both in choice and in originality. The young sommelier knew his business. This restaurant has a deserved 1 Michelin Star and 16 Gault Millau points. It is situated beautifully in the woods near Santpoort (a 5 minute walk from the train station) and is worth a detour!!

    What a beautiful place! Having your amuses at the large fireplace made me feel like the lord of the house. The service was impeccable, almost made me giggle because they are so formal. When it comes to the food and the wines there is absolutely nothing negative to say. The only complaint about De Vrienden van Jacob would be that it too expensive to make it a habit going here.
