This restaurant certainly lives up to its name 'The Secret of Edam'. It is tucked away in a narrow canal house, with a 'secret' five- to seven-course menu. It is tiny, with seating for just 26 people. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the maitre d' Henk makes sure you are never bored. We went during the 'heerlijke tiendagse'... More

I made a reservation for my wife and I at the Geheim on the penultimate night of a weeklong cycling trip as a bit of a splurge. I made the reservation using the restaurants reservation service which confirmed my reservation.

Only able seating 26 guests, it is probably the smallest restaurant of the region. However the food is great. Henk and his staff takes care of all cooking. He is also a perfect host. Some humour and thoughtful for his guests. Most certainly a clear recommendation. Sure to check availability.

We had a secret dinner at this restaurant, with accompanying wines. The (many, but small) dishes were delicious, and the wines were very enjoyable too. The service was friendly and efficient. All in all a very pleasant experience.

We found this little secret on the internet when searching for a place to have dinner in Edam. Good food, nice location, good service. Recommended! Only 26 or so seats, so it's good to make a reservation.

Last Thursday we enjoyed a nice dinner for 8 persons in this recently opened restaurant. We were celebrating the 61st birthday of Marian, a member of the family. The restaurant is established in an old narrow house located along one of the most scenic canals of Edam. The establishment is supposed to be specialized in small tasty dishes. So you... More
