Bibi Kuyp and chef Takis Panagakis have opened restaurant Elea at the Noordeinde. As the name of the chef suggests, the kitchen of this restaurant has subtle Greek influences.

The name Elea may sound familiar to you, so it is not a completely new restaurant. It used to be in Rijswijk and has now moved to Noordeinde 110.

Langoustine with Suneli spices

Restaurant Elea is known for its creative French cuisine with subtle Greek influences, which refer to the Greek lineage of chief Takis Panagakis. Sous chef Afroditi Lamprianidou, formerly chef of star restaurant Fine Fleur in Antwerp, also has a fine Greek taste. For example, they combine langoustine with Greek suneli spices, they give a subtle Greek touch to yellowtail kingfish from the Netherlands and they serve a slightly sweet variant of tzatziki for dessert.

The menu features a seasonal menu of five, six and seven courses (80 until 142 euros). Furthermore, the chef’s table has its own menu and there is an à la carte menu. On Saturdays and Sundays, a lunch menu of three (52, euro ) up to four courses (62,02 euros) served.


Hostess Bibi Kuyp: ”Just like in the dishes, we have applied subtle references to Greece in the interior. Olive trees refer to the name Elea, which means ‘olive’ in ancient Greek. Eye-catchers are the authentic stained-glass windows in the ceiling, the acoustic olive-shaped wall panels and the workstation with a Greek rectilinear meander pattern.”
