Where vegetables take centre stage
The apple variety “Ambro” is named after Ambrosius Fisher, an islander, who drowned while attempting to rescue drowning people from the sea. According to Greek mythology, one becomes immortal by eating the precious amber-coloured “Ambrosine” and therefore it was called the “nectar for the gods”.
Unfortunately, we cannot give you immortality. However, we do offer you heavenly flavours in many variations, based on as much local organic produce, meat and sustainable fish with a clear origin. We strive to revive forgotten tastes with respect for nature, underwater and on land.
In the dishes of restaurant Ambrosijn, you can taste the passion of owner and chef Co Huijbrechts. That is why we have become particularly known in recent years for our pampering menu. In this menu, you will find the finest flavours of our kitchen and experience what ‘green’, ‘pure’ and ‘life-extending’ cooking is all about. What that means is best experienced for yourself, enjoy!
