This family owned one Michelin star Restaurant has it all. First of all it has a very good price/quality rating. The service was fine. People were very friendly. The food was great: we enjoyed a 5 dish dinner with fish & pheasant. The wines were outstanding: Portuguese, Spanish, Sicilian, ... And what I loved most, was the spacious room. The... More

The service was good and friendly. We had the menu of 4 courses,.... Each plate was a treat for the eye and the tong! Good variety... More

Try to see the garden, aperitif in the garden is brilliant. Inside very nice too, authentic, romantic, great. Food great (pretty important of course). But they could be more generous. Portions are on the small side. WIne is served in the all-in formula, but not too often. Changing desert was not possible. Hence: already worth a visit, just a bit... More

A month ago I visited this restaurant with my boyfriend and mother. I made reservations for three, but when we arrived they only counted on a two persons reservation, however they quickly adjusted it for us three. The dinner was good, all the courses were really delicious. The staff was friendly apart from the lady of the house who was... More

Of the more than a 100 Michelin starred restaurants we have eaten at, only a few have really disappointed us. And only one disappointed tremendously: Kasteel Diependael. Food and service were really below acceptable. What a cold and unfriendly lady in charge! We had the feeling only the main course was done à la minute, and everything else was heated... More

Recognized by Michelin as 'a très bonne table dans sa catégorie'. I can only confirm that. The dinner was nice and cosy. If you go for the menu then make sure you select the 5 course menu (instead of the 4 course) because the optional crab dish was the best thing we had in the evening. The wine selection for... More

We had lunch in this beautiful little castle. Very friendly owners and staff. The setting and the garden are wonderful. Couldn't eat on the terrace unfortunately due to bad weather. Appetizers and starter were ok but were to cold ( 5 minutes longer out of the fridge would have been nice). The veal, as a mains, was succulent! Desert very... More

I have known this place for many year, but haven't been there lately. With friends from abroad I went back there last month and we have no regrets! Still very good food, nice setting and friendly/professional staff. Can surely be recommended!

We spent New Years eve at Kasteel Diependael, they served a special menu including wines and champagne. The setting is very cosy, we did find it a little bit too full but the food was fantastic, the staff very correct.
