High end restaurant SECRET GARDEN | Nikkei Cuisine in Amsterdam
Opening – In August high end restaurant SECRET GARDEN will open at the Reguliersdwarsstraat in Amsterdam. Inspired by multidisciplinary catering establishments in London, Madrid, Dubai and Paris, SECRET GARDEN is a place where you can not only dine, but also have a great time. SECRET GARDEN is a new initiative by brothers and hospitality entrepreneurs Roy and Mike Poppes. With more than 10 years of experience in the international catering industry, they missed a real mature, internationally oriented restaurant with experience in Amsterdam. An establishment where you don’t have to go into town after dinner, because you can continue the evening with cocktails and live entertainment. SECRET GARDEN offers precisely that added value and therefore becomes a unique addition to both the restaurant and nightlife offerings in Amsterdam.

Nikkei Cuisine at restaurant SECRET GARDEN
The kitchen is led by head chef Jeroen Romanesko, who previously worked at star restaurants Lucas Rive, De Nederlanden and Kitchen & Bar Van Rijn. The menu of restaurant SECRET GARDEN has been composed from the Nikkei Cuisine. This fusion style combines the delicate and elegant flavours of Japanese cuisine and the freshness and spice of Peruvian cuisine and is served as shared dining. From traditional Peruvian ceviche to Wagu A4 steak from the robata grill. The Japanese-Peruvian fusion is also evident on the cocktail menu, with cocktails featuring many South American products.
The monumental building at Reguliersdwarsstraat 38-40 has been completely renovated inside and out, under the eye of architect Will Erens of Too Many Agencies, known for his work for Lolo Amsterdam, SushiSamba London and The Markt New York among others. SECRET GARDEN actually has a beautiful hidden courtyard garden and also inside the green opulence flourishes. Through the use of natural products such as wood, metal and stone and, of course, lots of greens and plants, visitors imagine themselves on the edge of the Amazon forest.
Restaurant SECRET GARDEN is divided into three different areas. In the Bar Lounge, there is a huge cocktail bar, where you can also eat. From Thursday to Saturday, there is a programme of live entertainment. In the Garden Restaurant, the ceiling plants and the bright use of colours give visitors the impression of being in a tropical atmosphere. The Private Garden Room has its own bar and cocktail station and looks out over the monumental garden. There is room for groups of up to 46 people for a sitting dinner (up to 60 standing) and the possibility of additional entertainment.
Michiel Dekker has been appointed general manager of restaurant SECRET GARDEN. With more than 10 years of experience at the Entourage Group (including Izakaya, Momo, Mr Porter, The Duchess), he is the perfect person to turn SECRET GARDEN into the restaurant with international allure that Amsterdam is still missing. The opening is scheduled for 15 August 2022.
We love this cuisine, we still remember our dinner in 2015 at restaurant Pakta, also Nikkei cuisine.
