In his younger years, chef Marko Karelse worked as a kitchen assistant at a truckers' café in Spijkenisse. His dream was to open his own restaurant one day. After finishing culinary school in Rotterdam, he interned at restaurant Villa La Ruche where he learned from patron-chef Geo Bosma. Next, Marko worked as a chef de partie at restaurant Castellane in Rotterdam. He was invited back to Villa La Ruche by chef Bosma. Marko accepted the offer and eventually took over the restaurant in 2009.

Villa La Ruche’s cuisine

Distinguished flavours from fresh and local ingredients are presented in an original way at restaurant Villa La Rucha, perfectly paired with beautiful wines. Chef Marko Karelse and his team ensure that dishes are given a newer and fresher look with every change of season.  Make sure you don’t miss out on the signature dishes like the exquisite veal tenderloin with smoked egg yolk, truffle and potato or oysters with champagne sauce and fresh herbs.


Restaurant Villa La Ruche has three dining rooms that can be separately closed off or connected together for larger groups. This allows the intimate restaurant to be transformed into a meeting room or even a reception and party area.  The modern and relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant makes you feel at home and free to relax and escape your everyday routine. Every detail has been taken into consideration, from the music to the flowers on the table to the comfortable chairs you sit on. The restaurant is located in Voorburg, right next to The Hague. There are many interesting sights in the area including family-park Drievliet with exciting roller coaster rides. For art lovers, make sure you check out the museums in The Hague like Escher in the Palace and Museum De Gevangenpoort, about the history of crime & punishment.
