Description: De Heer Kocken gelegen in een prachtig oud pandje in Vught. Onze droom is altijd geweest dat wij een restaurant wilden openen waar de gast zich prettig voelt, een ontspannen sfeer heerst en waar je puur en (h)eerlijk kunt eten.Kortom flexibiliteit en gastvrijheid staan vor ons op de eerste plaats. Dat dit na 10 jaar bekroond wordt met een michelinster is natuurlijk onze grote trots.Wij hopen u snel te mogen begroeten in ons restaurant.Met hartelijke groet,John Kocken en Kirsty Kocken-de HeerTeam DHK

This is a real gem hidden in the south middle of holland. Real great food in an out of the way town. Local creativity with local produce makes this restaurant without pretense one of the best with a michelin star. Great creativity in dishes and nice southern style service. this is one of those hidden gem places you can only... More

What's more to say then the title of this review.... great food, great atmosphere, outstanding service and 2 owners and staff who well deserve their restaurant is fully booked each and every evening! I visit DHK every 2 - 3 months and each time it is a 'feestje'!

The problem with rating is that in eyes of somebody else it can be completely different. "De Heer Kocken" creates the expectations by having 1Michelin star, but it doen't really meat them. From such a high standard I expect excellent food en service and what I get is very good. For me it is not enough. You wil for sure... More

This restaurant has a Michelin star which is richly deserved! The chef is very creative and conjures up fabulous combinations! We started off with an amuse of coquilles with Indian dal, which was superb. It's not a big restaurant, which lends intimacy to the atmosphere. Good food, friendly service, good music, in short, good value for money and definitely worth... More

We come here quite often, since we live on walking distance from DHK, so we're very lucky. We don't even bother anymore to take the car to drive to Den Bosch. We find everything we need in De Heer Kocken: great food, great service, and a great atmosphere.

We didn't know what to expect and found very friendly service and outstanding food. I would recommend the set menus which are a "surprise". The balance and taste of the flavours combined on the plate was of an international standard and was a delight. The restaurant is obviously a well kept secret by locals, and is well worth the trip...

When you're looking for a great restaurant with refined dishes you are here at the right address. We got the 5 dishes suprice menu and were pleasently suprised. Next to the good food we did also have great wines. Was every thing perfect? No but it was handled in a great way. A minor point is the place where to... More

Highly recommended The “Heer Kocken” is a relief in the "restaurant" world. You will find it in the beautiful center of Vught, enough parking in walking distance is nearby or they will park your car and do the pickup for you. After highly recommended advice I went there with friends for dinner and must say they were 100% proven right.... More

I went to the De Heer Kocken on a business diner with a "celebrity" (and important) customer. The place is lovely and the food is truly special. It is placed in a traditional Dutch house with a separate bar area and a few garden tables. The three meal course included tuna fish and veal and was delivered perfectly prepared for... More
