Restaurant Bentinck

A former stable of the historic estate surrounding Amerongen Castle now houses restaurant Bentinck. The restaurant’s interior is the best-preserved historical stable interior in the Netherlands. The tapestry, painted by artist Claudy Jongstra, and the wine cellar, formerly the tack room, are absolute eye-catchers. In the kitchen, the chefs create contemporary Dutch cuisine. A traditional castle vegetable garden, Eastern spices, and regional foods from the Utrechtse Heuvelrug inspire the dishes. Restaurant Bentinck is the perfect place for lunch, dinner, a cup of coffee, or any other memorable moment at a unique location.
