Restaurant Scherp

On the menu, you’ll find a wide range of international dishes paired with locally-sourced ingredients, fresh seafood, and fine wines. Imagine fine sashimi of yellowtail fish from the nearby village Kats, or an excellent glass of Brut de Zélande from Schouwen-Duiveland.  Sommelier Dhani Scherp-Zapata has harmoniously integrated the wine list with the kitchen. At restaurant Scherp you can taste Zeeland, with a contemporary and original twist. This not only applies to the menu, but also to the interior of the restaurant and B&B, which gives you a warm welcome.

Scherp’s cuisine

Chef Mart Scherp feels privileged to be able to work with so many beautiful regional products in Zeeland. With a lot of love, dedication, and passion for the culinary profession, he uses this in his delicious dishes. Specialties on the menu include North Sea sole with cannelloni wild prawns, spinach, cream cheese, zucchini and fennel, and the beef steak with cheese-churro, roasted tomato, chicory, green asparagus and béarnaise mayonnaise.
