‘t Ganzenest (‘The Goose Nest’) gained fame as a restaurant in The Hague, where it served classic French cuisine until 1999. From 1999 to 2007 the restaurant moved to Rijswijk, before closing its doors in 2007.
In September 2020, ‘t Ganzenest reopened, with Erik Tas as chef. In May 2022, it received its first Michelin star. Together with his team, Erik Tas prepares beautiful dishes, still in a classic French style. Some examples: langoustine with celery, creme fraiche and bergamot, red mullet with artichokes and olives, or duck liver with beetroot, quince and a crumb of spices. ‘t Ganzenest uses only seasonal products.
The restaurant offers space for meetings, parties and celebration of all shapes and sizes. It also sports a large garden with many possibilities for functions and events. In the garden, the restaurant grows the vegetables and herbs that are used in its dishes. Look out over this beautiful green oasis on the edge of the city and enjoy top-notch cuisine in style.
You can even join a culinary cruise on the Vliet, while enjoying light bites and drinks. After a small stop at restaurant Bij Erik in Leidschendam – also run by Erik Tas and rewarded with a Bib Gourmand – the ship takes you back to ‘t Ganzenest.
