|At present, ‘De Beukenhof’ is one of the most well-known and respected restaurants in The Netherlands. While having a modern design, it retains a refined century-old ambiance and has an intimate, enclosed character both inside and outside in the garden. Many famous persons have preceded you in spending an evening here, enjoying its culinary delights: e.g. Queen Beatrix, Maria Callas, Liz Taylor, Montgomery, Prince Bernhard … and many others will follow you.
In 1953, Brik sold out to the Hotel Group Dikker & Thijs. In 1981, the restaurant was taken over by the Bilderberg Group.
In 1994, Mr Kroes and Mr van der Klugt became the owners of ‘De Beukenhof’. On 1 June 1996, it was taken over by Erwin Rozendal. In January 2001, he gave the go-ahead for the building of luxurious hotel suites. The first five suites were opened up to guests on 3 September 2001, marking the dawn of a new age and once again adding an important chapter to the restaurant's rich history.
