Classic with a creative twist
Bistro Karel 5 is located in the oldest monastery kitchen of the Netherlands. The (culinary) history goes back to 1348, when the Teutonic Order built the monastery.
Chef Mat Zwetsloot and Bistro Manager Jet Aalders, serve their favorite dishes from the open kitchen. Mat and his team are inspired by the seasons and prefer to cook with regionally sourced organic ingredients, while creating classic dishes. Classic, but always with a modern, creative twist. For instance the carefully chosen seasonal vegetables from De Lindenhoff farm. Jet and her team are ready to welcome you to an informal and hospitable place, where the attention is always on the guest.
Bistro Karel 5 is the place to enjoy every moment of the day. Discover our Afternoon Tea or try one of our homemade cocktails in our Bar&Lounge or on the terrace.
