Step on board of the Oriole train and experience the unique flavours of different countries with the Oriole Express! The culinary train will depart from Amsterdam this spring and will take you along the most beautiful locations and delicious cuisines, each with their own charm and identity.
After the great success of last year, the Oriole Express will travel again and visit five different countries each month. The first stop is the beautiful island of Malta, which is known as the culinary treasury of the Mediterranean. With the influences of Italy, Spain, Greece and Turkey, this island surely knows what culinary enjoyment is! After Malta, the Oriole Express will head south, to the North-African country Morocco. Here you will be surprised with delicious dishes that includes couscous, lamb and of course the ultimate dessert M’hanncha! Before the train is heading back to Europe, we make one extra stop at the upcoming hotspot when it comes to culinary enjoyment; Tel Aviv! After you have enjoyed the traditional Shakshuka, you can reminisce from this bustling city on the colorful beach of Ibiza. Here you will be treated with the most delicious fish dishes from the hip Spanish island. Lastly, the Oriole Express will pass the beautiful island of Croatia, to enjoy typical Croatian dishes such as Riso Nero Venere with seafood.
Every month our kitchen brigade serves a delicious three-course Menu du Chef of €39, depending on the specialties of the country. In addition, you can complete your international lunch or dinner with two or three glasses accompanying wines from our sommelier for €15/€21.
At the beginning of your journey you will receive your very own ‘Oriole Express passport’ which you can use to save for well-known stamps in every country. Once you have visited three countries, you will receive a complimentary cup of coffee and pastry of your choice. Have you travelled with us the entire journey? Then you will enjoy a complimentary 3-course lunch menu at gardenbistro Oriole. Of course, you can enjoy the same country several times a month. You will receive a stamp with every visit.
