Breakfast Chef @ The Dude

Restaurant The Dude is our breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant. The food and drinks in The Dude are inspired by the whole American continent, from North to South.

Breakfast starts at 7.00am during the week and 8am during the weekend. Although you will be working in the breakfast, it is good to know that the chef's take off their jacket at 11pm. In this position you would join our kitchen team, which is our Head Chef, three other Chef de Parties, one student and several colleagues in the stewarding.
