Sustainable meat

Modern way of eating meat

At the Meatcave you only eat meat from the Big Green Egg. Sustainable and responsible. We realize this through a close cooperation with our farms and butchers. We carefully choose our meat with quality and durability in mind. The animals are free to roam. No bio industry. No chemicals. No antibiotics. Just pure meat and we’d like to share this with you.

We pride ourselves on sustainable and culinary meat.

Tough name

Refined background

At the end of 2015, brother and sister Pim and Joëlle opened the first restaurant in Leiden. The Meatcave was situated in a historic stone cellar with only ten tables where guests enjoyed culinary meat. The Cave has grown into two spacious, beautiful top locations and even an award-winning cocktail bar. Everything is still cooked without a menu on the Big Green Egg. So be surprised and enjoy meat in a conscious, responsible way.

Jo’s Ribs Takeaway

The founders of Meatcave (brother and sister) have been fighting for years who can make the best Ribs on the Big Green Egg. Joëlle has often won the popularity prize. Normally Meatcave focuses on more refined and smaller courses. But now during the COVID-19 closure, the chefs are temporarily going to make these great ribs for you to enjoy at home. Order your portion now and pick them up in Rotterdam or The Hague.
