MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Two MICHELIN Stars: Excellent cooking, worth a detour!

Bas van Kranen has transformed Bord'Eau into Flore, a restaurant entirely devoted to his philosophy of conscious fine dining. The many natural features lend individuality to the contemporary comfort of the decor. And that is no coincidence. His fascinating and original approach to nature emphasises vegetables, local produce and sustainability. Biodynamic growers have become regular suppliers and the chef has also banished all dairy products from his kitchen. His search for solutions feeds his creativity and has resulted in a very pure style of cooking.
Each dish has surprises in store. The small plates keep you on your toes up to the very last bite. Chef Van Kranen gives oysters from the Eastern Scheldt a twist by combining them with seaweed and a deeply aromatic dashi bouillon. Quail is boned and all its meat cut out. The bird is then stuffed again before being cooked to perfection. It is juicy, having been slowly roasted, ready to be served with fine seasonal vegetables and a powerful, subtly sweetened sauce. Bas van Kranen's cuisine has personality, and he clearly takes pride in working with Dutch produce. He also has the confidence to cook just the way he wants to.

Gastronomy & Sustainability

MICHELIN Green Star

"We have switched to local supply from biodynamic growers in the Netherlands. Grown healthily and as locally as possible. We have stopped using dairy, purely for the way in which milk is obtained. We work with Dutch quail and cuttlefish from the North Sea, for example. That is quite intensive, but so beautiful. I want a real seasonal kitchen."
