A Unique Culinary Experience
From the moment you step into De Eetkamer, you feel like you’re in for a unique culinary experience. Chef Marco Cardoso has internalized the techniques and global flavors he acquired while training under Liam Tomlin, making them his own. The frequently changing menu features about 12 small plates that are perfect for sharing. Choose from Japanese and Korean dishes to those inspired by Morocco and the Mediterranean.
Standout Dishes at the De Eetkamer
The Korean fried cauliflower is a crowd-favorite and is a must-try. The crispy crust complements the juicy vegetable, with sweet and savory flavors in the sauce. The spring-fresh gnocchi with artichokes, peas, and lemon beurre noisette is another standout dish. The light and crispy squid on a Romesco sauce offset by black olives takes you on a journey to the Mediterranean.
Great Value for Money
De Eetkamer offers great value for money, and the desserts like the chocolate ganache with Oreos and pecan nuts or the panna cotta with caramelized pineapple are simply delicious.
An Ideal Setting
De Eetkamer has a big open courtyard shaded by umbrellas and trees, perfect for lazy lunches and dining alfresco on sultry summer evenings. The service is friendly and attentive, and the winelist is a cracker.
