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.
