Food and drinks

Omke Jan likes good honest food without frills, so expect tasty authentic dishes in our restaurant. Recognisable food, prepared with as many products as possible directly from local farmers. The seasons determine what the farmers can supply, and what we serve. Down-to-earth honest and delicious!


The open kitchen is the territory of chef Ruben Schippers and his team. In the middle of the restaurant, there is a modern wood oven where guests are welcome to gather and watch ancient techniques such as grilling, fermenting and baking.


Everything from the kitchen of Omke Jan is fresh, authentic and real. Dishes include beetroot salad with herring, baked potato with sour cream and bacon, fried beef shoulder, vegetable pie from the wood oven, and grilled fish. We also serve home-made apple pie, toasted sandwiches with rich fillings, and good bread.

Changing dishes

Omke Jan’s menu reflects the changing seasons. When farmers can supply us with something fresh from the farm, we transform it into a delicious dish.


As a lover of the good life, Omke Jan likes to serve good wine and good beer.
Our wine and beer menu changes regularly. For example, we always have a varied range of local craft beer for you to enjoy, as well as standard quality beers. We source our wines from traditional European winemakers. Omke Jan is a great believer in good wine being available for everyone to enjoy, so even our premium wines have a friendly price.
