Meet the chefs
Cooking is all about good food

And, food brings people together, to meet and greet and enjoy an intimate, culinary experience. Chefs is located in the beautiful Bamboo Bonaire Boutique resort.  

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 their days at culinary school, the dynamic Dutch duo of Han ten Winkel and Mark Tromop embarked on a culinary journey that spanned the globe, honing their skills in a multitude of renown restaurants, both near and far. However, it was the serene shores of the small Dutch Caribbean Island of Bonaire that ultimately beckoned them to turn their dreams into a delectable reality.

Their vision was crystal clear: ‘To utilize only the finest ingredients in the creation of exquisite dishes, served within an intimate, personal setting where the roles of Chef, Maître, and Waiter seamlessly blend into one.’

According to Han and Mark, a genuine Chef must aspire to fuse their extensive experiences, innovative ideas, expert techniques, diverse cultures, and, most importantly, the highest quality ingredients into an unforgettable culinary journey - all infused with an undying passion.

More recently, this culinary ensemble has welcomed new members into their team, thereby expanding versatility and flexibility. Chefs Jochem de Heer and Boaz Aalvink, hailing from the Netherlands, bring with them a wealth of expertise and a shared passion for the art of cooking.

Within the sanctuary of their kitchen, Jochem and Boaz work their culinary magic in close proximity to their guests, ensuring a personalized experience that truly acquaints them with your preferences and offers the unwavering attention you so richly 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.
