Iconic Sphinx at Cabillaud

On Thursday September 30th a small version of the iconic artwork the Sphinx was unveiled at our premises in De Maaspoort in Venlo. The original Sphinx was donated to the city of Venlo in 1993 by Jacques and Ellen Scheuten of Scheuten Glas in honour of its 650th anniversary. The design came from the Venlo artist Fons Schobbers. In October 2013, the sculpture was placed. Unfortunately, the artwork had to be demolished after a few months due to irreparable damage caused by cracks.

A small version of the Sphinx is now placed on the second floor near the entrance of restaurant Cabillaud. "A beautiful work of art. We are proud and happy to be able to make this work accessible to a large audience thanks to a loan from the Scheuten Foundation." Says the managing director of De Maaspoort, Leon Thommassen.

Ellen Scheuten was present as chairman together with the other board members of the Scheuten Foundation, Joep van de Voort and Hay Thissen, at the unveiling of the statue in the Maaspoort. Afterwards they toasted together and enjoyed a dinner at Cabillaud.

Also want to organize an event at or in cooperation with Cabillaud and De Maaspoort. Please contact one of our event managers at events@maaspoort.nl.

First impression. pleasant ambiance, friendly welcome and stylish decor. Dined comfortably in one of the... round benches, which in itself is cozy sitting. The service was up to par. We had something to celebrate, so the five of us enjoyed a nice bottle of champagne, followed by the six-course menu with accompanying wines. Excellent wine and food combinations, really top! And believe me we are used to some ;-) favorite was the Rendang of pointed cabbage with coconut and pork belly. An explosion of flavor, especially in combination with the Riesling that was served with it! In short, enjoyed a wonderful evening. All praise for the team of Cabillaud. The pearl of Venlo. So do it!read more

Delicious food, everything was presented as a beautiful work of art. Flavors of the dishes fit well together... complemented by a nice glass of wine. Especially that salmon was really well prepared. Service could be a little less businesslike and more casual. Because of the high ceiling less cozy, but nice lighting.read more
