4th time we have eaten there - was on a short vacation with two other couples. The six of us had the 7 course fixed menu - three hours of top of the shelf dining experience. One of the best meals AND dining experiences I (we) have every had. Worth the entire trip!!

We did the Novalis menu with wine pairing and were very impressed. The first night we checked in we were unable to go as it was full, luckily the following night we had the place to ourselves so the service was unbelievably good.

The fine-dining restaurant in Burghotel Hardenberg is always decent with very good food and an excellent wine-list with some world-class wines from Bordeaux, Italy and Spain. Overall nice service.

This was actually my second time going to Novalis and the expectations were high given how great the first experience was. And well, I wasn't disappointed.

We, 2 couples spent a weekend at the Burghotel Hardenberg. With our golf package we had a 5 course meal at Novalis Restaurant. The food was good, starting with 2 "Greetings from the kitchen".
