Restaurant Basaal has been based at Dunne Bierkade, one of the most beautiful canals in the centre of The Hague since 2001. Chef Bas Oonk has led the way for years with his culinary style on Avenue Culinaire, a range of restaurants and cafés on Dunne Bierkade, each with their own unique and international style.
Cosy restaurant and terrace
Basaal serves dishes from the European kitchen in a warm, contemporary and intimate atmosphere. The restaurant consists of the adjoined parterres of two small town houses. In the summertime you can enjoy dining on the spacious terrace with view on the charming Dunne Bierkade.
Over the past few years, Bas Oonk's kitchen has evolved into a contemporary, basic style using regional products. For several years, Restaurant Basaal has been a member of Euro Toques, a collaborative that focuses on the use of natural, and preferably regional and seasonal produce. In 2015, the Michelin guide awarded the efforts and consistent quality of Basaal with a BiB Gourmand. 'Bib' is short for Bibendum, the Michelin man, that awards a mark of distinction to eating establishments that offer an excellent meal for under 37 euros.
Location Dunne Bierkade, where Restaurant Basaal is located, is one of the most beautiful canals in The Hague city centre. When The Hague was not yet a city and beer making was not permitted, the beer was brought in from Delft via de Bierkade in The Hague. Here, it was possible for the beer to be sold by the beer blenders who lived in the Bierkade, the so-called 'bierstekers'. Dunne Bierkade was given its name because thin (dun) or light (licht) beer was sold here. Nowadays, you will find an abundance of eateries and cafés here. Historical buildings, cosy terraces and delicious food make Dunne Bierkade the favourite part of The Hague for many connoisseurs.
Restaurant Basaal is located at Dunne Bierkade near Stationsweg in the centre of The Hague. Dunne Bierkade is a five-minute walk from Den Haag Hollands Spoor railway station and ten minutes from Central Station. Various trams and buses also stop in the vicinity.
