Two souls, one mind united in the Alma concept. They are head chef Wouter van Laarhoven and his partner Malou Hagenaars. In November 2019, they began to turn the top floor of De Swaen’s historical premises on De Lind in Oisterwijk into their ultimate dream: their own restaurant where everything is just perfect. In their fine dining restaurant, it’s all about quality and luxury. The catering couple run a second, accessible bistro-style eatery on the ground floor of the building. That’s Alma Bodega.
Alma Bodega is an accessible and creative introduction, as it were, to our restaurant on the first floor. It’s the first rung on the ladder to head chef’s Wouter’s culinary highlights. The bodega welcomes guests from Tuesday to Sunday from noon onwards for informal lunches, delicious dinners or simply a good glass of wine and tasty bites. Relax and enjoy yourself in a stylish ambiance.
Whether you’re here with your colleagues, your friends or the love of your life, you’re welcome to Alma Bodega at any time of the day. Here, you can escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and relax in pleasant surroundings. Our lunch and dinner menus have some surprising options. You may make a reservation if you like, but it’s not mandatory.
Alma bodega is an eating establishment with all the usual facilities. Here, you can explore head chef Wouter van Laarhoven’s capabilities in an easy-going, accessible ambiance. And if you like it, come and visit our fine-dining restaurant on the first floor.
