Meet the team

Inspired by plants and butterflies

Butterflies that fly from the garden to the atrium, a tremendous variety of plants, a spice garden, all to inspire a bunch of creatives. Meet the chefs and mixologists inspired by Botanica.



Whether it’s the spiral of a pinecone’s scales, a transformation from cocoon to butterfly, or simply the ripples created by the wind – each aspect of nature has the power to catch the eye and intrigue the mind. Call it Fibonacci’s sequence, the golden ratio, or nature’s secret code. We find it captivating. Our team will captivate you in the same way by welcoming you into a kitchen, bar, and lounge within which you can explore the botanical world of The Netherlands.

Together they source impeccable local ingredients, apply old-school techniques, and finish it off with some spices from the garden. Working towards the path to the future and some undoubtedly creative dishes.


“I am inspired by people. I’ll hear stories of the Hagenezen, get to know the locals, and take a step back to see what exactly this beautiful city has to offer. With that I am a storyteller and in Botanica what you see is what you get. You’ll see the vibrant city of The Hague on a plate.

My team and I can’t wait to share our passion with you!”
