Meet the Chefs

and share their ‘taste’ sensation

Cooking is all about good food

And, food brings people together, to meet and greet and enjoy an intimate, culinary experience.

After a warm welcome at 7:00 PM, the Chefs are there to personally accompany you to your seat. A very comfortable seat, placed in a surprising setting with a cosy, relaxed atmosphere.

A chance to meet new people and share (Bonaire) stories and adventures. A place where the Chefs not only create culinary masterpieces, but will serve them to you personally as well.

In short:
an exquisite evening, to be fondly remembered and talked
about for a long time after.

Who are these Chefs

Friends since Culinary School, the Dutchies Han ten Winkel and Mark Tromop ventured across the globe and gained experience in many a well-known restaurant in places near and far. The small Dutch Caribbean Island of Bonaire was where they decided to make their dream into reality:

‘to only use the best in order to create delightful dishes, served in an intimate personal setting where Chef, Maître and Waiter are all one and the same’.

According to Han and Mark, a true Chef must strive to fuse experience, ideas, technique, cultures and the best ingredients into an unforgettable culinary experience. And….with a passion!

They work their magic surrounded by their guests to ensure they get to know you personally and give you the attention you so wholeheartedly deserve.

At CHEFS you are not a customer but the much valued guest. After all, a good dining experience is fine, but a great dining experience is what you’re really after.

A culinary evening

Let the Chefs take you on an adventure where they listen to your needs but will surprise you all the same. The Chefs will set the menu and of course we pay attention to any food or allergy restrictions that you may have.

Our wines complement your courses in a carefully selected wine flight. Of course you are also welcome to select wines yourself. All we want for you is to sit back and enjoy the experience!
