About Bolenius

The Dutch Cuisine flagship

Prime Dutch Island lamb, North Sea sole, caviar from the city of Eindhoven and vegetables, many, many vegetables. That’s the soul of Bolenius. Fava beans, celeriac, preferably homegrown in the garden that is located right next to the restaurant at the Amsterdam business district “de Zuidas”. Next to the vegetables you will find sustainable fish and local meat of the highest quality. Chef Luc Kusters passionately creates dishes with these ingredients since 2010 in the Bolenius kitchen – and not without success. Bolenius is Michelin Starred since 2016, can be found in several national and international prestigious lists as “best vegetable restaurant” and, this year, it received a special Michelin Green Star for its efforts to cook sustainably.
