Restaurant Latour in the Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin has a spectacular view overlooking the beach of Noordwijk. It is ‘the place’ to enjoy and relax where our staff will welcome you with genuine warm hospitality. It is our passion to create memorable and delicious haute cuisine that is delightfully served with desirable wines. After launching in 1990, our ambition was awarded with a Michelin Star in 2005, a proud achievement we have had renewed annually ever since. However, it is the praise and enjoyment of our esteemed guests that inspire the most pride in me. I aim to maintain our Michelin Star status and to create innovative and nourishing cuisine that bind traditions and international trends. Our passion extends to sustainability, the wellbeing of people and planet. ‘From-sea and farm-to-table-to-farm’ … our seafood is sustainably sourced locally to support our fishermen, and vegetables and herbs come from our community farm. We are conscious of not being wasteful, ensuring that any organic material is composted back to the farm. Restaurant Latour’s outstanding wine cellar includes both famous and traditional winemakers, as well as small-scaled Dutch wineries. Our Sommelier’s pairing recommendations will add a special dimension to your culinary voyage. I feel privileged to offer you an unforgettable evening with extraordinary culinary highlights and I hope you enjoy my favorite Sea Bass dish as much as I do. Recipe
