Let's give Het Spijshuys the chance to bring their 'grand desert' back. It used to be delicious! The place is alright, there are not too many options around.

We celebrated my wife's birthday at this restaurant, with 36 of us all told. To my pleasant surprise, the proprietors permit free choice at the table for such a large number from a slightly restricted menu. This did not impede efficient preparation and unhurrried but well synchronised serving of the tables by charming serving staff. The greatest test of all... More

We, Isabelle and Simon Lamsma, are two young, highly motivated people with a lot of passion and personal conviction for our passion, the gastronomy. In June 2014, we were able to take over this renowned restaurant of Gerard and Jose de With. During the last 14 years they made this restaurant to what it is today. It has received many awards, such as the BIB GOURMAND of the Michelin guide, which stands for an extremely good price/ performance relation. But also in the magazine Lekker top 500 the Het Spijshuys is not missing. Isabelle Lamsma-Kummer successfully completed her training as a hotelier at the Hotel School of Lucerne in Switzerland. The frisian Simon Lamsma went to Switzerland after completing his education to gather abroad experience in various Swiss Hotels and Restaurants. Most recently, he worked in the Rigiblick in Zurich, a restaurant, which has also been awarded a Michelin star. But a ,,real" Frisian is pulled back to his home. Isabelle, his wife, took on the challenge and the adventure Friesland started. With the acquisition of the restaurant ,,Het Spijshuys" a long-cherished dream of each of them has come true. Chef Tjeerd Elzinga, has for many years been sous-chef at ,,Het Spijshuys" and has now taken over the lead of the kitchen brigade. He loves to create new culinary creations from high-quality products out of our region and he really enjoyes pampering our guests. This according to our motto : pure, honest, savour. The restaurant is open daily, except Mondays and tuesdays, from 3 p.m. until 23 p.m. We look forward to welcoming guests from the region, tourists, but also groups and business people are always welcome. We serve you apart from in Dutch and Frisian, also in German and English language. Welcome to "Het Spijshuys", Isabelle und Simon Lamsma
