VA Restaurant Dordrecht

The Villa Augustus restaurant is located in the middle of the vegetable garden in the former pump house. It is open the whole day, seven days a week and can accommodate 200 guests. The restaurant is an inspiration for both gardener and chef, as here in the garden, the Dutch seasons can be seen – and harvested – from the early spring to deep in the winter. All the fruit, vegetables and herbs go directly from the garden to the chefs. In the open kitchen – the heart of the restaurant – they prepare everything as deliciously and attractively as possible.

The menu

There is a limited selection of dishes on the menu, some of which change every two months. As much as possible, we use organically grown produce and ingredients that are produced sustainably. We prefer local products, but we are not afraid to use good ingredients from elsewhere in Europe, too!

N.B.!
Daily specials are announced on blackboards above the kitchen. They are made in small quantities because the ingredients have limited availability and often change from day to day. Gooseberry ice cream, rillettes of wild boar with stewed prunes or fresh marrowfat pea soup – it all depends on what our chef has managed to acquire.

The wood-fired oven

Every morning, we light the wood-fired oven – the chef’s pride and joy. All kinds of food are roasted or baked in the ash-wood fuelled oven, including fish, pigeon, tomatoes, beetroot, etc., etc. A fixed feature is our seasonal pizza.

The wine menu

Villa Augustus has a modest choice of carefully selected wines. Most of the wines come from growers who cultivate their grapes in a healthy way, often organically.

The terrace

From the spring sometimes until deep into October, you can enjoy a drink and a meal on the terrace in the garden. Surrounded by lemon trees and looking out over the vegetable garden, where our gardeners are hoeing, sowing, planting and harvesting.

And in the evening, you can walk through the garden to see the sun setting over the Wantij river…
