Tribeca has two stars in the MICHELIN Guide Netherlands 2017

This year, the two distinguished three-star restaurants in the previous selection, De Librije in Zwollen, and De Leest in Vaassen, maintain their distinctions. Only around one hundred restaurants in the world currently hold three stars. Michelin is delighted to unveil the new MICHELIN Netherlands 2017 selection, which has 688 restaurants, including 106 starred ones.



In its 2017 selection, the MICHELIN Guide rewards a new restaurant with two stars, Tribeca in Heeze.

After making his debut in the restaurant Chapeau! in Bloemendaal, Jan SOBECKI now works in his own establishment, where he offers well-balanced and refined dishes, in a short time, Tribeca has become a benchmark, well worth a visit!

Michael ELLIS, International Director MICHELIN Guides

Five new restaurants receive a first star this year. Among them, three are in Amsterdam, proof of the constant improvement in the standard of gastronomy available in the Dutch city in recent years. The restaurant RIJKS® won the Michelin inspectors over thanks in particular to the inventive cuisine of its chef Joris BIJDENDIJK, as did MOS, a restaurant that offers creative dishes with varied and well-balanced flavours. The Amsterdam restaurant Bolenius, where the chef likes to highlight nature by working a wide range of vegetables, also gets its first star.

In Bois-le-Duc, Noble has also been rewarded with one star in the new MICHELIN Guide selection. Chef Edwin KATS has succeeded in recreating the special atmosphere on the plate through original flavours that are sometimes surprisingly brought into relief.

Finally, the MICHELIN Guide inspectors awarded one star to the restaurant Cucina del Mondo, in Heerlen.

The 2017 Guide also rewards 134 restaurants with a Bib Gourmand (marked with the = symbol), among which are 18 newcomers. Particularly highly sought after by the general public, eager for special restaurants where it is possible to eat well at moderate prices, as well as by chefs, the restaurants distinguished with a Bib Gourmand offer a full, high quality menu (starter, main course, dessert ) for a maximum of 37 euros.

The 2017 MICHELIN Guide Netherlands will go on sale on 15 December for €21.95 in the Netherlands and Belgium and €21.33 in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The new selection brings together 951 establishments among which are 263 hotels (including 23 guest houses) and 688 restaurants:

  • 106 starred restaurants
    • 2 three stars restaurants
    • 19 two stars restaurants
    • 85 one star restaurants
  • 134 Bib Gourmand restaurants, including 18 new restaurants.
