Live-Cooking Lunchbuffet at Hotel Groningen-Hoogkerk



Due to a modification to the buffet area in our restaurant, we do not serve a lunch buffet from 15 July to 30 August.

From Monday to Saturday between 12:00 and 14:00 we welcome you for our Live Cooking lunch buffet. The name says it all: 'live and cooking'. With us you can enjoy dishes that are prepared live by our Live Cooking Van der Valk chefs. Of course you can indicate your order yourself, along with the desired preparation method. Our chefs are also happy to think along with you! How nice is it to order your dishes yourself and perhaps learn something from the preparation method of our enthusiastic employees? We do our utmost to offer our guests a friendly service with surprising interpretation.


The Live Cooking Van der Valk concept is based on self-service, which is also the case with us. You decide how often you want to visit the buffet and what you want to eat. Hereby we give you an idea of which dishes you can expect during Live Cooking lunch buffet in Groningen:

  • Cup of seasonal soup
  • Various types of bread
  • Butter, herb butter, tapenade and olive oil
  • Various types of cheese and meat products
  • Extensive salad bar with homemade salads
  • Various toppings and dressings for the salad
  • Yoghurt and cottage cheese
  • Fresh and dried fruit
  • Various live cooking dishes (meat/fish) with seasonal vegetables and vegetarian pasta

The Live Cooking lunch buffet includes drinks such as coffee, tea, fruit juices, mineral water, milk, buttermilk and chocolate milk. Other drinks can of course be ordered, but are exclusive and are calculated on the basis of subsequent calculation.

Do you have something nice to celebrate? Then you can order a (non-alcoholic) bubble prior to the Live-Cooking lunch buffet for 3.00 per person. Prefer to finish with a festive dessert? This is also possible! For 5.00 per person we serve you the 'sweet cherry' dessert. This dessert consists of cherries, vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. This upgrade can be optionally booked.
