Restaurant de Echoput

Restaurant de Echoput has been known for years for its game preparations and food & wine pairings. Our special environment plays a major role in this. For example, we work in season with local game of the Veluwe and various vegetables, herbs, mushrooms and fruits from the immediate area. “We want to get everything out of nature, literally and figuratively,” says chef Kevin Schlaman.

Kitchen history

In the 1950’s, de Echoput was a humble teahouse where you could enjoy something simple to eat for a few guilders. However, (grandfather) Jaap Klosse was well ahead of his time by keeping a close eye on the developments in French cuisine. Except in preparing wild game.


Over-extended periods of ripening the meat and thick, rich and noble tasting sauces were reason enough for him to develop a more refined cuisine. With these wild game specialties, de Echoput became one of the early Michelin star restaurants in the Netherlands. The kitchen later specialised even further with wine and food pairing.

Hotel bar

The bar can also be considered almost at one with nature, with its high windows looking out to the old towering trees. You are welcome to take a seat under the forest scene by local artist Peter van Oostrum or at the atmospheric bar.


The bar is the place for a morning coffee, a light lunch, or to relax with a drink after a challenging hike. In the evening you can also enjoy vintage dishes and Echoput classics, have an aperitif prior to dinner or digestive to top off the evening.

Private dinners

Of course it is also possible to dine privately or in a group. De Echoput has various rooms available for different sizes of companies.


From a long oval table seating 25 people to a dinner with several round tables, feel free to ask about the options for private dinners.
