About us

‘I like to describe my style of cooking as “relaxed”.’

Restaurant De Vrienden van Jacob opened its doors in 2002, with Alain Alders, the current Executive Chef and SVH Master Chef at the helm. Alders on his cooking style: ‘Our dishes are mostly based on traditional French cuisine, with Mediterranean touches. More than anything else, top gastronomy should not be too stiff. I would describe my style of cooking as “relaxed”.’ He points out that talent and culinary experience are, of course, also important,

But it is just as important to love what you do, day in, day out. Without passion and maximum concentration, you will never achieve top results. 

The end product? Mostly light, original combinations of ingredients and garnishes that complement each other on a flavour-technical level. Alain Alders: ‘We try out new creations through the Gourmet menu. This menu serves as a kind of platform. The most successful combinations are then added to the main menu, which changes quarterly. The accompanying wine list completes the culinary feast.
