Location and contact

Restaurant Wannee is named after Ms. Cornelia Johanna Wannée. Ms. Wannée taught cooking and gastronomy at the “Amsterdamse Huishoudschool” at the Vondelpark in Amsterdam.

Dutch Cuisine is a five principle based manifesto created by SVH Masterchef Albert Kooy; 1. Culture, 2. Health, 3. Nature, 4. Quality & 5. Value. Every month our chefs create a new menu under these principles; representing the season with vegetables from the cold soil and the meat or fish as a garnish.

As we owned and ran restaurants a teaching restaurant is fun. Here food is also excellent and wine is interesting. Very reasonable price. Service young but professional, we had business to talk and did so effectively. No Muzak. Good acoustics. Recommendable!
