Restaurant Eden

As you may have guessed, the name of restaurant Eden is derived from the Garden of Eden. Garden of Eden symbolizes a life of opulence and luxury. And this is exactly what this fine-dining spot strives for. Guests must be pampered as well as provided with top-notch service and products. Restaurant Eden in Valkenswaard combines the best qualities of chef Herman Cooijmans and host and sommelier Robin Groos. For many years, they worked together in Heeze at Hostellerie Vangaelen. After going their separate ways, they realized a joint dream of hospitality in their province with restaurant Eden.

Eden’s cuisine

Restaurant Eden represents hospitality, gastronomy and a wonderful experience. This inn is the playground of chef Herman Cooijmans and sommelier Robin Groos. Their cuisine shows a surprising mixture of subtlety and artistry, flavoured with influences from around the world.  Chef Herman Cooijmans uses spices from the Middle East for an exotic flair. His talent also shows in the contrasting combinations he brings to the plate. It might seem a bit strange to serve watermelon with spiced curry and skate with strawberry, but these dishes are surprisingly delicious. Two specialties in the menu include watermelon in little gem met bergamot, avocado in Padrón pepper and ray fish with strawberry, mushroom, cucumber and beurre blanc. Wine lovers are sure to find their own little Garden of Eden here with exquisite wine pairings that complement the cooking.

Valkenswaard surroundings

The interior at restaurant Eden creates a magnificent paradise with a nice vintage touch and warmth, derived from the use of natural materials and colours. This modern inn is located in the town of Valkenswaard, North Brabant. “Valk” is Dutch for falcon. The name Valkenswaard came about because falconers lived and hunted wild falcons there.  Interesting sights in the area include the falconry and cigar-makers museum, and for car lovers, the DAF museum, which tells the story of the DAF brand, including trucks and rare production and prototype vehicles.
