No menu, instead you get to choose for 5, 6, or 7 courses. The chef prepares small well balanced dishes which were all a delight. Accompanied by well chosen and thoroughly explained wines from...

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely evening at Het Geheim van Edam. We opted to add a 6th course (fried scallops and the ravioli- both excellent) to the 5 course secret menu and we had the wine pairings. Every course was well presented and delicious. The wine pairings definitely added to each course. We had a 6 PM reservation... More

You know me know, I rarely give a 5 stars to a restaurant I visit, but this one really deserves it. First of all, Edam is always a city where to go but the restaurant, right in its heart is ideally located.

The atmosphere/service was first class... More

In this small scale restaurant, in the charming center of Edam, there is a fixed menu of 5 courses for €39. The menu offers a nice variety of dishes accompanied by nice wines (whole of half glases). You can order extra dishes as well (try the black pudding really very good. Traditional Dutch way). Service is very enthusiastic.

Thank Esdeka
