Orlando David

Orlando David is an Amsterdam-based chef of Chilean-Colombian descent. During his travels, he encountered various cuisines that strongly influenced his cooking style.

David has worked in several top restaurants alongside renowned chefs such as Nick Bril, Richard van Oostenbrugge, and Michael Wolf. After a few years, he was invited to join the team as a chef at Sergio Herman’s legendary 3-Michelin-starred restaurant, “Oud Sluis” in Zeeland.

Ultimately, David spent 2 years cooking there until the restaurant closed in 2013. He moved back to Amsterdam, where he worked as a chef at his aunts’ restaurant: Singel 101, located on the beautiful Singel in the heart of Amsterdam. David made a significant mark on this restaurant through the special fine dining menus and culinary creations he crafted there.

In 2023, David opened his own fine dining concept: R21 on Peperstraat 23 in Amsterdam. Here, you’ll find his unique cooking style once again: an international, contemporary kitchen filled with quality ingredients. David’s philosophy is that no chef should be limited in using flavors from around the world.
