Company Information

On the edge of the dune, on the road between Bergen and Egmond is our unique Café restaurant Gasterij’t Forest. Inside the Gasterij is the atmosphere homely and warm, with many maritime accessories in the interior of old shipwrecks and beach finds.

Gasterij’t Woud already exists almost 60 years and we go well! That is why we are always looking for a new talented, motivated independent working chef.

In the months of October until January we are known regionally as a traditional ‘ wild ‘ restaurant (with beautiful game dishes such as; pheasant, hare, pigeon, rabbit, deer and wild boar). Of course we also have delicious fish and vegetarian dishes on the map. Our guests come for the quality of the food, the carefully chosen wines and a pleasant ‘ living room atmosphere ‘.
