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.


A quick glance into our open kitchen and you’ll see a handful of personality and close to every nationality you can think of. What binds them together? The green team vision: a common goal to give you a taste of the neighborhood. 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.


Behind this open kitchen you’ll meet passion. A team that create dishes inspired by nature. “To us, there’s no great chef without a great team.” Our vision for Botanica has to translate through every single plate we bring to our guests. What sets Botanica apart? The element of surprise – you will not have tried vegetables, carbs or proteins served in the way we serve them.
