In our spacious Live Cooking Restaurant, we offer a unique experience where our chef and his team prepare the most delicious dishes freshly, à la minute.

The Live Cooking Restaurant

We welcome you every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 17:00 21:00 for a delicious dinner buffet in our special Live Cooking Restaurant. At the restaurant, our enthusiastic team will be at your service throughout the evening to take care of your every need. Take a seat on one of our lovely chairs and enjoy the wide view over the gardens of our hotel. Enjoy a delicious dinner together with your friends, family or acquaintances. The mood lighting and partitions give our Live Cooking Restaurant an atmospheric feel. The restaurant is luxuriously furnished and is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious dinner in good company.

In our Live Cooking Restaurant, we have also thought of our youngest visitors with a separate play corner and entertainment. This allows the children to play while parents enjoy our extensive dinner buffet.

Our Live Cooking Dinner Buffet

In our restaurant, we have a wide selection of starters, main dishes and desserts in buffet form. The ideal way to fill your own plate and be culinarily surprised by our enthusiastic chef and his team. Start the evening off right with one of our delicious cold or hot starters. How about a freshly made soup with a crispy baguette, for example? Or a fresh salad you can put together yourself? Besides a wide choice of hot and cold starters, our buffet also has a wide range of different fish, meat and vegetarian dishes. Unique to our dinner buffet is our Live Cooking concept where the chef is ready to prepare a number of dishes live on the grill for you. Of course, many more hot dishes can be found at our buffet and a wide choice of luxury bread types cannot be missed either. As icing on the cake, at the end our dinner buffet is transformed into dessert heaven where the most delicious cakes, pastries and ice cream are already waiting for you. The ideal end to a successful dinner.

Of course, all those culinary dishes will also make you thirsty. Therefore, during dinner, you can pick up various drinks such as house wine, draught beer, soft drinks, coffee and tea.

Are you coming with the whole family to enjoy our Live Cooking Dinner Buffet? That's possible too! Especially for our youngest eaters, we have prepared a buffet full of delicacies such as sweet poffertjes, delicious pancakes with icing sugar or syrup, various crispy snacks such as cheese soufflés, frikandells and chicken nuggets and various sauces.
