LEV. by Mike’s cuisine

The cuisine at restaurant LEV. by Mike can best be described as a mixture of international cuisine with regional Dutch products. In this kitchen, the complex art of combining various flavours with the most beautiful products is executed perfectly.  The culinary team, who is tightly organized, is free to develop themselves. This results in beautiful and daring dishes, often combining seasonal products with local seafood. Each dish can be paired with an excellent glass of wine, or a refreshing non-alcoholic drink.
