Wow, everything comes together in this experience (it's not a dinner, it is an actual experience). My partner and I had a 6 course menu with matching wines. We sat in the back of the restaurant, overlooking the terrace, pond and garden. A magical view; one to ask for when you make your reservation.

Chef Alain Alders presented us the amuse-bouche, starting our culinary journey. I won't go over each following course separately, but as a whole it was such a treat! Also, the sommelier was kind and relaxed, making our dinner very laid back and wines were well explained and paired with the dinner courses.

The Chesterfield couches next to the lit fireplace in the lobby area is where we finished our evening at the restaurant. We asked for a nice whisky suggestion and some coffee. These were presented with mignardises, which we devoured, even after the 6 courses we already had.

It was much worth the trip from Amsterdam and a positively different experience from the Michelin awarded restaurants there.

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.
