The Traveller has arrived…

The Traveller – a new globally oriented restaurant concept conceived by Michiel Deenik, head chef and owner of restaurant Visaandeschelde and THE ROAST ROOM – opened its doors in November 2019 in the green heart of Cumulus Park in Amsterdam Zuidoost.


This is Michiel’s third restaurant. He launched this new adventure with Neal Valentijn and close childhood friend, Jeroen van Brussel. The restaurant’s concept is inspired by their shared love of travel and the culinary voyage of discovering that comes with it. Michiel focusses on the necessary culinary arts and Neal will run daily operations and management.


Cumulus Park is developed in collaboration with the municipality of Amsterdam on the Bijlmerdreef in Amsterdam Zuidoost. In the middle of the green park that connects all offices located at the Cumulus Park, The Traveller serves as the culinary heart and meeting venue. It is an inspiring place where employees working on the Cumulus Park, students and businesspeople, as well as local residents, shoppers and the nightlife crowd, are welcome to enjoy a tantalising breakfast, lunch or dinner from early in the morning till late in the evening.


The menu at The Traveller is adventurous, with a mix of traditional world dishes prepared according to modern cooking techniques. And with beers and wines originating from all corners of the earth, the bar menu offers a true voyage of discovery. The service and kitchen staff is also international in its makeup; something that will only enhance the authentic taste experience.


The bar/restaurant pavilion is designed by Powerhouse Company and is developed by OVG Real Estate and G&S Vastgoed. Studio BvanB worked with the architect to create the interior design. The building’s imposing glass front with rounded corners, its high-grade wooden roof and surface area of more than 900 m2 place it securely within the realm of iconic design.
