Since 1996, one of the pearls of North Holland has been located in the Jan van Goyenstraat in Heemstede, on the border of Haarlem. This acclaimed restaurant knows exactly how to treat its guests, owner and host Ton Nelissen ensures that hospitality and service are paramount.

In addition to the excellent service, the food has also consistently achieved a high level for years. Cheval Blanc has had a Michelin star since 2007.

The team in the kitchen is ambitious and well attuned to each other. Chef Huub van der Velden is a true artist with his own style and taste that guarantees a continuous quality of his kitchen.

The team is inspired by seasonal products, forgotten vegetables and makes surprising creative variations on classics. This is mainly apparent in the various modern and classic cooking techniques that are used.

Each dish is prepared with care and has its own garnish, each part of which is seasoned. The final result is mouth-watering dishes.
