De Echoput is a restaurant and part of Hotel Gastronomique De Echoput in Hoog Soeren, Apeldoorn in the Netherlands. It is a fine dining restaurant that was awarded one or two Michelin stars in the period 1971-1997, 2002-2004 and in 2012. GaultMillau awarded the restaurant 15.0 out of 20 points.[1]

De Echoput is a member and one of the founding fathers of Alliance Gastronomique Néerlandaise[2][3]

First owner and head chef was Jaap Klosse, who made full use of the location on the edge of the Royal Game Reserve Het Loo.[4][5] Considered a "delightful restaurant"[6] and one of the "best restaurants"[7] in the Netherlands, it was named after an "echoing well" where people traveling by obtained water for their horses. The building has the appearance of a hunting lodge and the restaurant specializes in seasonal game dishes, such as venison, boar and fowl.[7] Theus de Kok is leading de kitchen since 1974. First as head chef, later as executive chef-maitre.[8][9][10] In June 2010, Leendert Scholtus took over the kitchen from Chiel Dohmen.[11] In February 2014, Scholtus announced that he would leave De Echoput to start his own restaurant.[12] His successor will be Peter Paul van den Breemen, former owner and head chef of Het Jachthuis Hoog Soeren, who starts at 1 April.[13]

The original restaurant was closed and demolished in 2004. Peter Klosse, son of the founder and owner of the complex since 1985, replaced it with a hotel and restaurant. They celebrated the reopening by winning the International Restaurant Awards category Best New Restaurant of the Year/Luxury Restaurant.[14][15]
