Perceel in Capelle aan den IJssel, near Rotterdam - 1 Michelin star (2014 review)

Rating: 92. In my last review of Perceel (April 2012), I concluded that this establishment was one to follow over the coming years and that is precisely what I've been trying to do. I have been back twice since, the first time in January 2013 (see slideshow) and most recently in July 2014. During my last meal I noticed subtle changes, significant enough to warrant a new review. Perceel is open for l...

FG in Rotterdam - 2 Michelin stars (slideshow)

Rating: 93. In November 2013 FG restaurant in Rotterdam (previously named Ivy) was awarded a second Michelin star.  In my opinion this second star was well-deserved since chef Francois Geurds (former sous-chef at The Fat Duck) and his team had consistently been cooking at this level for a number of years already (see my 2011 and 2012 reviews). On Saturday 17 May 2014 I had a delightful lunch at FG. This ...

Restaurant Fred in Rotterdam - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 91. With the release of the 2014 Michelin guide, the Netherlands gained 3 new two-star restaurants, Restaurant Fred and FG (previously Ivy), both in Rotterdam and Bord'eau in Amsterdam.

Before opening his own restaurant Fred Muster...

Amarone in Rotterdam - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 85. Amarone restaurant is located in a bustling Rotterdam high street called De Meent. Head chef and owner of the restaurant is Gert Blom. Before opening his restaurant in 2006, Gert Blom trained in the kitchens of well-known Dutch (Michelin starred) restaurants, such as La Rive at the Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam (during the two-star reign of chef Robert Kranenborg), Huis ter Duin in Noordwijk, De Zweth...

Perceel restaurant - 1 Michelin star in Rotterdam

Rating: 91. Don't get me wrong: I love great restaurants and I love great chefs and I often find myself in awe at the history of long-established restaurants and the reputation and skill of legendary chefs. In fact I'm going on a culinary pilgrimage later this month to the likes of Ducasse, Gagnaire, Blanc, Troisgros, Bocuse and Haeberlin. However, nothing beats the excitement of going to new restaura...

Restaurant De Zwethheul (**) in Schipluiden (near Rotterdam)

Rating: 92. In the Netherlands there are three important restaurant guides. Obviously there's the Michelin guide, there's the Gault Millau guide and last but not least there's the 'Lekker' guide ('Lekker' is Dutch for delicious), a guide that I have been buying for over twenty years now (yes, I do buy other guides than Michelin...). The guide is always released in November and...

Parkheuvel restaurant - two Michelin stars in Rotterdam

Rating: 93. Parkheuvel restaurant in Rotterdam is a culinary icon in the Netherlands; in 2002 it was the first restaurant in the Netherlands to be awarded three Michelin stars. The head chef and owner at the time, Cees Helder, retired in 2006 and the restaurant passed to Erik van Loo. In the year before his move to Parkheuvel, Erik van Loo had been awarded a second Michelin star at restaurant De Zwethheu...

FG Restaurant (previously Ivy) in Rotterdam - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 92. Note: In June 2013 Restaurant Ivy changed its name to FG Restaurant. This story starts in 2005, when my husband and I were having lunch at the Fat Duck in Bray-on-Thames to celebrate our 10th anniversary. A member of staff told us that a Dutch chef was working in their kitchens as Heston's sous-chef but we weren't introduced at the time. Only in February 2009 wh...
