Restaurant Girassol is the oldest Portuguese restaurant in the Netherlands. Guests have come to enjoy our Portuguese cuisine for over thrity years. Wilma and Carlos Teixeira realized their dream with the opening of Girassol in 1983, and they continue to pour love and compassion into their family business.
Many national and international celebrities have enjoyed the traditional dishes prepared in our kitchen. Among others, the restaurant has welcomed Amalia Rodrigues, Mariza, Carlos Do Carmo, the Portuguese soccer team, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Henk Schiffmacher is one of our regular and welcome guests as well.
In 2011 Girassol’s interior and style was fully renovated, but the authentic character of the restaurant has been maintained. With modern decor and colors, the restaurant is a contemporary establishment with the looks of a Mediterranean restaurant. Quality, coziness and personal attention will always be paramount.
