Marcel van der Kleijn CALLA’S
Marcel van der Kleijn
Marcel van der Kleijn (1967) is not only a gifted chef but also a successful entrepreneur who has injected verve and vigour into The Hague’s sleepy culinary landscape for almost 22 years. He is now at the helm of a business with four flourishing restaurants, including Oogst and Tapisco, both of which boast a Bib Gourmand. This Zeeland-born chef’s success story began with Calla’s in The Hague, for which he was awarded a Michelin star in 2002. The daily management of Calla’s’, which has retained its star, is now in the hands of chef and business partner Ronald van Roon.
