Lunch and dinner

Every day we have specials and there are always fish and meat specialties on the menu. Naturally an old captains dinner is not lacking.

History of the name

The ship Rozereyn (indeed, with a 'z') was built in the year 1725 by order of the East India Company. Like many Dutch trade vessels that time the Rozereyn was rigged as a warship and carried 54 guns.
Furthermore, the crew was double manned, which was very usual and necessary due to losses of men during the journey caused by bad food and other hardship. During four years it brought, under the authority of captain Martin Kuyl, spices and other things of the East Indies to the Low Countries until in 1729 a typhoon in the South China sea caused heavy damage. The day after, the battered ship was attacked by the notorious Jam Seng and his pirates, after fierce defense captain Kuyl had to cease resistance.
What remained of the crew were captured and nailed on the deck of the Rozereyn, the vessel was charged with gunpowder and perished.

As a miracle boatswain Herman Huus survived, sadly enough only for a short time. Still nailed to a deck he was picked up after nine days by the Dutch merchantvessel Texel. After he had told what happened he died from exhaustion and severe injuries.

Philosophy of our restaurant

In the past Rosereijn was a cafe where sailors drank when they returned from a long journey of, which happend just as oftens, they indronken courage for the next difficult journey at sea.
The current Rosereijn has a different clientele, but it still exudes the atmosphere, warmth and excitement of the past. One should feel himself at home and enjoy a good meal so you are able to handle the rest of the day easily.
