Food has always been important in my family. So starting my own restaurant was always a given and in 2015 I opened Hortus vegetarian restaurant in the same building as La Paulowna Boutique Hotel, which is run by my brother Wim and his wife Anusschka. 2020 has been a surreal year to say the least. But it did allow me to take a step back and reflect and I decided to continue with some changes, focussing on what is important to me.

Delicious food, made with passion and served with love. A place where you want to spend time with family and friends, eating & drinking & enjoying, creating memories. Using fresh produce, not only because it is healthier, but also because the flavours and quality benefit so much more from it. A true experience of the vegetarian cuisine.

Hortus is located on a beautiful sunny square in the Zeehelden quarter of The Hague. We serve lunch and dinner in a relaxed atmosphere, either indoors or on our large sunny terrace.

See you soon,
John
