welcome to envy

For more than a decade Envy has a distinct philosophy: let our guests taste the finest products and purest ingredients possible. Sometimes simple and sometimes with a gastronomic touch, combined or on their own but always full of flavour. Be surprised and ‘envited’ from the beginning ‘till the moment you leave our restaurant.
All the dishes and drinks have the same purpose: to seduce you!


Speaking of our staff! The team of Envy is a young, close and dynamic team that has one thing in common; they are all food lovers with a huge passion for amazing food and elevating wines. They are not just collegea’s on the work floor but also great friends. The team is bursting with energie! As a guest, you can not ignore their enthusiasm and ambition to create an amazing evening and a wonderful experience for you!
The team is led by our talented and passionate chef Floris van Straalen (26 years). Our chef has learned his tips and tricks as a student at Old Sluis Restaurant ***, under the supervision of Sergio Herman. When Oud Sluis closed, Floris decided to work at Pure C *, the restaurant of Syrco Bakker. After only 6 months after opening this restaurant it gained a Michelin star. Just as it befits an enthusiastic chef, it was time for the next step namely Amsterdam Vinkeles * (The Dylan hotel) with Dennis Kuipers. Eventually he found his place at Envy, first as a sous-chef, follewed by the succesion of Michael Wolf (Old Sluis ***, Vila Joya **, Wolf Atelier) as chef of Envy.

Floris van Straalen is not mailny foccused on traditional dishes. On the contrary, he is constantly in search of innovation and pushes all boundaries in combination with a whiff of tradition. His inspiration comes from his own surroundings, but also from abroad. He signiture is shown through the pure and gorgeous ingredients he uses, generating his own exciting creations. A great promise for the culinary world. A driven chef who creates an energetic restaurant, but with a welcoming and down to earth atmosphere. A hotspot where lovers are tempted by quality.

Monthly interview: Chef Milos

There is no one as loyal to Envy and his profession as Milos is. Since 2005 he creates the most beautiful desserts at Envy. A born patissier, who above all prefers to surprise his girlfriend with his own interpretation of the bounty. One you must crack open! A true lady’s man you would say. What makes him happy? Silicone ... mats!

Eating in or eating out? In

Favourite dessert?
The Garden of Eden, it was on the menu of Envy. What’s in it? Aloe vera, kiwi, cucumber, yogurt and eucalyptus. Maybe it will be back soon on the menu!

Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Any kind of cookie, especially Oreo’s!

When you go out for dinner, do you always order a dessert?
Yes, of course!

Favourite restaurant?
The Ijkgebouw in Alkmaar, who besides being a rotisserie also serves lovely diches.

What is indispensable in your kitchen?
A blast chiller

That differs every time, from internet to books. They give me inspiration and just like that an idea crosses my mind. For example, I also like to watch Roger van Damme.

Favourite tool in the kitchen?
Silicone mats! Of course rubber 3D baking forms for chocolates as well. The choices are endless.

At what place do you prefer to buy your kitchen tools?
Duikelman in Amsterdam or Cnudde NV in België

First dessert you made for your girlfriend?
My own interpretation of the bounty. A dessert which you need to break open to get to its core.

Well…using salt instead of sugar…
