O Mundo is a restaurant housed in Hotel de Wereld in Wageningen, The Netherlands. It is a fine dining restaurant that was awarded one Michelin star for the period 2010–2013.[1][2][3][4]

Gault & Millau awarded the restaurant 15 out of 20 points.[5]

O Mundo's head chef is Dennis Richter Uitdenbogaardt, with the help of hotel owner-chef Addie Roelofsen.[6] Baltasar Tieskens, who joined in 2008 from Cordial, was the first chef to earn a star.[7][8] Richter Uitdenbogaardt took over in 2011, when Tieskens left, and retained the star.[9]

The hotel where the restaurant is housed was the location where Oberbefehlshaber Niederlande German commander-in-chief Generaloberst Johannes Blaskowitz surrendered to I Canadian Corps commander Lieutenant-General Charles Foulkes on 5 May 1945, ending World War II in the Netherlands. The building is owned by the Wageningen University and Research Centre.[10] The hotel was revived in 2002, when Addie Roelofsen took over the hotel (but not the actual building) and renovated the place to modern standards within its historical context.[11] In September 2013, Jaap Venendaal took over the hotel.[12]

O Mundo means "The World" in Portuguese - the same as the hotel's name in Dutch.
