“Mother Nature reigns, I try to follow her, she dictates the quality, I add the flavour. As a chef I add my personal touch with a predilection for fresh tones, acids and spices. They will always be present in my dishes, recognizable or unrecognizable” - Jacob Jan Boerma

The White Room

The White Room takes elegant but accessible cuisine to perfection. Together with the sour tones and spices Jacob Jan Boerma is known for they give substance to the illusion of white. Recognizable flavours are brought in an unexpected way.

The perfect location

The name The White Room is derived from the historical name of the room ‘De Witte Zaal’, the name that was given to the restaurant when it first opened in 1885. The room is listed as a monument and is considered to be the oldest restaurant of Amsterdam in original condition. History and future are connected with one another, due to the modern styling of this unique restaurant.
