When in the nineties the Eastern Docklands were converted into the modern residential area that it is today, we opened our restaurant of the same name in the old shipping company of the Oceaan. While the area was rapidly developing and taking shape, it soon became clear that the range of shops did not really meet the wishes of the new residents. The appreciation that our restaurant received in the neighborhood gave us the idea of opening a caterer and deli from the philosophy of our kitchen, thereby also providing the residents with good food at home.
In 2003 the possibility arose to move into a space close to the ‘Brazilië’ shopping center. We have taken up the challenge of meeting this need. The result is the Oceaandeli, which has since grown into a caterer, delicatessen and wine store.
The restaurant changed hands on September 30, 2005. The spirit of The Ocean, however, lives on fully in the Oceaandeli.
