Welcome…and Farewell…


Posted on Aug 5, 2014

Welcome…and Farewell… It may be goodbye to our #QuizNights…but it’s a large Welcome to our new executive chef. Our winter #QuizNights ended with a bang. After some harrowing questions the top two teams elected to call a draw and share the amazing prize. Congratulations to the winners and all who participated! We may be saying farewell to our #QuizNights but this week we also say a very hearty Dutch welcome to our new executive chef, Chef Wayne. You may know him from Hermanos, or La Vierge, or even Monaco? If you don’t…you’d best come and meet him and sample is outstanding creations. Welcome Wayne! This Friday is our monthly Indonesian Rijsttafel. Bring a bunch of friends and enjoy this interesting and convivial way of dining. Our team has some excellent tastes and textures planned for you to enjoy.Remember we’re back to our usual hours of 09h00-21h00 so you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner with us 7 days a week.  ...

And the overall #QuizNight winners are… We had the last of our winter #QuizNights last Thursday and contestants battled through some very difficult questions. Coming out tops to battle it out in a game of sudden death to reach the winning post were the Oompa Loompas and the Rocket Scientists.  However, both teams elected to skip the sudden death and share the prize. Luckily – the prize is more than big enough to share. The winners are off on a private sunset cruise with Southern Right Charters and we’re making sure they have Bitterballen and Heineken to take along on their adventure. Congratulations to the winners and a special thanks to all of you who made these evenings so wonderful. We’ll most certainly be doing them again next year. Watch this space though…we have something up our sleeve to entertain you on Thursdays now that #QuizNight is over. Southern Right Charters The Rocket Scientists Oompa...

Gezellig Gezelligheid

Gezellig Gezelligheid


Posted on Jul 30, 2014

Gezellig is a Dutch word that has no exact English translation. It can mean cosy, warm, friendly, comfortable, relaxing, enjoyable, gregarious and a range of other feel-good things. It’s the word you’ll hear most often in the Netherlands and embodies the heart of Dutch culture – being happy, having fun, feeling joyful and enjoying good feelings, times, things, people… Thanks to you, our patrons, Dutchies is filled with gezellig gezelligheid all the time. Whether it be on our Thursday night quiz evenings, the monthly live music, the Indonesian Rijsttafel or a quiet meal on the terrace contemplating Grotto beach – Dutchies is always ‘gezellig’. Thank you for helping us infuse Dutchies with this much valued Dutch spirit of warmth and togetherness. One thing for sure is it has certainly kept us all warm through the winter! We’re looking forward to the last of our Quiz nights tomorrow and to getting back to our usual hours from the 1st of August. The sun is rising earlier and earlier, Spring is on the horizon and there are many more days (and nights) of ‘gezelligheid’ to be had with you at Dutchies. Tot siens!...
