On the menu at The Head of East

At De Kop van Oost, you can let the chef surprise you with a 3- or 4-course menu or choose to order à la carte. Some favorites are the Salmon tartare with dill emulsion and Burrata with foam of tomato as a starter and the Dorade with fennel salad and samphire as a main course. You could call it fine-dining but at accessible prices and in good portions.

"De Kop van Oost's dishes are surprising and accessible to a wide audience. This means that foodies can indulge, but someone who wants to eat out spontaneously also has plenty of choice. The basis of the dishes is classic French cuisine with international influences and modern twist, each dish has Nick's signature. This signature makes the dishes exciting making you want to come back again and again." says chef Nick Holter
