Our café-restaurant offers an easy and affordable gastronomic experience. The art of fine dining handed to you on a plate! Enjoy a cup of coffee and/or a sandwich before or after your exhibition visit, or treat yourself to a mouth-watering Chef’s Lunch. The café-restaurant is on the first floor, right over the foyer. And you’re welcome to use it at any time – no tickets necessary. Click here to see the menu.

Chef’s Lunch

Our talented chef, Patrick Goijaerts, draws inspiration from each new exhibition. He uses fresh and interesting ingredients to create his special Chef’s Lunches: a delicious two-course menu with an optional dessert. And our extensive wine list can always supply the perfect lunchtime glass to complement his dishes. For further information or table reservations, please mail requests to inforestaurant@hermitage.nl. Or click here to make a direct reservation (Tuesday - Sunday) in the restaurant.

Please note: the Chef's Lunch is closed from 8 July -13 September 2019.


We also offer a popular Classic Beauties guided tour plus Chef’s Lunch package. You start with a mouth-watering two-course lunch followed by coffee, tea and luxury bonbons. Other drinks are subject to supplementary charge. After lunch, your group visits the exhibition with a private guide. Alternatively, the guided tour can, of course, be booked to take place before lunch. The package is available for groups of min. 15 people and costs € 48 per person. For further information about this package or our other catering services, please contact us via events@hermitage.nl.
