Restaurant Merkelbach is situated in one of the most prettiest parks of Amsterdam: Park Frankendael. The restaurant bears the name of city architect Ben Merkelbach and is located in the monumental coach house of the 18th century Huize Frankendael. I absolutely love their terrace which faces their stylish garden with a fountain.
Pure and sustainable food
Chef Marc Wunderink cooks in a way where he can both respect the product as well as the environment. His dishes are gorgeous and tasty in prepared in a way where he brings out the best in the ingredients he uses. Restaurant Merkelbach is a member of Slow Food in the Netherlands. A movement of food changers. Their goal: good, clean and fair food for everyone. The chef also really cares about where his products come from. They use meat form farm Lindenhoff in Baambrugge. A farm which you can visit to see how the animals live. They also try to reduce food waste as much as possible. Nose to tail cooking is their way of cooking. They also use fish caught by the ‘Goede Vissers’. Since they fish with respect for the ocean. The fish is bought directly form the auction and delivered to the kitchen the same day to ensure the fish is super fresh. And they also grow a lot of herbs and some vegetables in their own garden in Park Frankendael. So if you are looking for an unique and lovely surrounding to eat and also know you can enjoy your food without any feeling of guilt. Merkelbach is where to go.
