Restaurant Bougainville is a destination unto itself and offers the finest, unique and sensory gastronomic experience – and this experience all starts with personal attention, an elegant setting and a panoramic view of Amsterdam’s city centre.
Restaurant Bougainville is open to guests and non-guests of Hotel TwentySeven – an extraordinary and sensational suite boutique hotel located in the beating heart of Amsterdam’s city centre – which is situated in the same building.
Warm materials and a luxurious design featuring shades of bronze combine to create an intimate and romantic atmosphere, and its splendour is emphasised by the stunning view of the Dam Square, one of the best-known and most important locations in the city.
Award-winning Dutch hotelier Eric Toren and renowned designer Wim van de Oudeweetering worked together to develop an intimate space filled with luxurious seating, lush fabrics, chic light sculptures, aspirational pictures of beautiful models, and a stylish brown-and-gold colour scheme, cleverly accented by flashes of vivid-pink flowers and flickering candlelight.
The restaurant is led by Executive Chef Tim Golsteijn and Wine Director Lendl Mijnhijmer. Executive Chef Tim Golsteijn and Head Chef Dorus Floris combine distinctive flavours from the West and the East to which they add their own creative flair and thus create a dream to the taste buds.
Tim puts great emphasis on flavours and aromas, since every flavour tasted can be matched to a certain memory. Golsteijn is the modern gastronomic conscience behind Restaurant Bougainville.About Tim Golsteijn – Executive Chef
