History

In 1995, Ingrid Horster and her then partner Fred Mustert took over the restaurant from Carl Schuurs en Yvonne Savert, who went to France. Horster and Mustert broke up their relationship in 2007 and Mustert left La Vilette. In 2009, the restaurant filed for bankruptcy. As reasons were given personal circumstances for owner Horster, the economic downturn and the loss of the Michelin star. After the bankruptcy, Guy Montoux and Gerhard Braun took over, with Jeroen Bot taking command in the kitchen.
